BERLAND MD, and SUSAN DORR GOOLD MD, MHSA, MA Jenny, a woman in her twenties with morbid obesity (not her real name), had already been through multiple visits with specialists, primary care physicians (PCPs), and the emergency department (ED) for unexplained abdominal pain. A plethora of tests could not explain her suffering. Monthly visits with a consistent primary care physician also had little impact on her ED visits or her pain.

In this study, a link between mitochondrial changes and infant temperament has also been suggested. Maternal psychosocial stress and lifetime trauma have been associated with decreased mitochondrial DNA copy number in the placenta (115, 116).IndividualityChronic stress links changes in the epigenetic landscape with health conditions (117).

Conclusion Amino Acid Residues Around FeMoco Are Immutable FeMoco is situated deep below MoFe protein and surrounded by amino acid residues, supported by α-subunit mainly. The residues play varying roles in catalytic properties and orientation. α-Lys424 is located near homocitrate long arm. Homocitrate serves as a terminus of FeMoco. nifV− mutation, in which homocitrate was replaced by citrate resulted in significant decreases of acetylene, proton, and nitrogen reduction activity, indicating an important role of homocitrate in nitrogenase activity (Liang et al., 1990). Nitrogenase undergoes protonation ...

(Vanderbilt University) Indicators of despair -- depression, suicidal ideation, drug use and alcohol abuse -- are rising among Americans in their late 30s and early 40s across most demographic groups, according to new Vanderbilt University research. These findings suggest that the increase in 'deaths of despair' observed among low-educated middle-aged white Baby Boomers in recent studies may begin to impact the youngest members of Generation X more broadly in the years to come.

For more than 20 years, Mary Cregan wanted to write her recently published memoir The Scar: A Personal History of Depression and Recovery, but she felt that she couldn’t. It’s primarily because she wasn’t ready to face the exposure required to be so honest about such a devastating, difficult part of her life. Because that’s the thing about writing: We let readers into our innermost thoughts and feelings, into our souls, and that can be scary. We tackle topics we’d never bring up with a close friend, let alone a stranger, and yet that’s exactly what we do. We share our stories with thou...
