Scientists from UC Berkeley has found and isolated a dormant stem cell in blood vessel walls that causes heart disease in old age. This finding, published in the journal Nature Communications, is considered a breakthrough as it contradicts all previous theories that explained why arterial hardening occurs.
Dr. Deepak Srivastava, director of the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease at UCSF, explains the significance of these findings by saying, “These findings shift the paradigm … If the new data holds up, the target for treating vascular disease may be very different than what we’ve been aiming at … Maybe the reason we’ve met with limited success in treating heart disease is because we’ve been going after the wrong target.”
In other words, once this theory is tested to be true by other research organizations, a fresh approach will be taken by drug companies to find ways to shut down these negative stem cells even before it gets to the stage where someone has to face the threat of a heart attack.
The conventional approach, as mentioned above, has been to treat the heart disease when it forms, and with this discovery, once accepted, heart disease as we know it, will become a thing of the past.
Although Li conducted most of his research on mice, and awaits confirmation of this discovery by other research teams, what this does is cause medical professionals to question whether some theories that have been discarded or even those that are accepted as fact in today’s world.
But no matter what, the truth still is that there is much that we don’t know about the human body and our existence as a whole.

It’s hard to imagine what we would do without our water heaters, but the truth is most of us take the technology for granted. They’ve always been there, after all, so imagining a world without them can be hard. That’s why when your water heater does break down, you waste no time in finding someone to fix it. But before you do that, you should consider the below tips.
When you need someone to fix your water heater, a plumber will often fit the bill, so be sure to contact them, especially if you know one personally and have a good relationship.
Be sure whomever you let handle your water heater repair is certified and licensed to practice. Otherwise you’re potentially breaking the law by hiring them and they could lack necessary skills. As a result, they might end up making things worse.
You also want to make sure they’re insured and bonded. By being insured, they can’t sue you if they get hurt on your property. Being bonded just reinforces that they must do whatever the contract says for the price they quoted you.
Lastly, not all water heaters are made the same, so it’s important you get a repairman who is experienced with your make and model. Tankless water heaters are fairly new, so it will be especially important that you find a professional who knows about them.

The reason for the onset of Alzheimer’s disease can be attributed to a number of genetic, environmental and lifestyle-based factors.
However, a recent study reveals that the compound DDE, which remains after DDT is broken down, is present in higher levels in those patients with Alzheimer’s compared to those who don’t.
In a press release, Richardson and the team of researchers concluded, “This study demonstrates that there are additional contributors to Alzheimer’s disease that must be examined and that may help identify those at risk of developing Alzheimer’s. It is important because when it comes to diagnosing and treating this and other neurodegenerative diseases, the earlier someone is diagnosed, the more options there may be available.”
The study found that 74 out of 86 patients had almost four times more DDE in their blood levels compared to the others.
What this study also reveals is that despite DDT’s worldwide ban in agriculture, 75 to 80 percent of the compound is still found in blood samples collected from people by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The reason for this is because the chemical takes a long time to break down in the environment after all these years.
Unfortunately, if people continue to eat fruits, vegetables and grains that are exported from countries which still use DDT as well as consume fish from contaminated waterways.
So, if one wants to minimize their chances of getting this disease, they will have to be careful in selecting only locally grown foods as well as the seafood they consume.
India remains DDT’s largest producer and its consumer as well.

A nucleotide is an organic molecules that works as a monomer of RNA and DNA. Nucleotides work by carrying portions of energy inside ATP. Inside ATP, GTP, CTP and UTP, nucleotides hold a central role in the operation of the body’s metabolism. Furthermore, nucleotides play a role in what’s known as cell signaling and help out with enzymatic reactions.
They are made up of a nucleobase, a give carbon sugar and at least one phosphate group. This is why you may have referred to nucleotides referred to as nucleotide monophosphate.
When a nucleotide contains what’s called a deoxy sugar, that nucleotide is called a deoxynucleotide. Polydeoxy can then be used to create polumers of deoxynucleotides,
Nowadays, nucleotides can be synthesized in the lab. As a result, you can get poly dt and poly dt, which both refer to deoxynucleotides.
The impact of this is incredible, when you think about it. Synthesizing a nucleotide monophosphate would be a big deal when you consider the role it plays within RNA and DNA, both essential to human existence. However, the fact that you can create deoxynucleotides in the lab as well opens further doors for what science can do in the service of mankind.
Hopefully, the above has served as helpful primeras far as deoxynucleotide is concerned.
