Are Onions and Garlic Healthy? Here ’s What Experts Say
Garlic and onions are staples for many home cooks. But do these plants actually add any health benefits to your dishes? Or are they purely for flavor? People who try to eat colorful fruits and vegetables in order to get a wide range of vitamins and minerals may think that pale foods like onions and garlic don’t offer many nutrients. But although they may not look like nutritional powerhouses, experts say they are. Onions of all colors (including white) are good sources of vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium and folate, while garlic is rich in vitamin C, vitamin B6, thiamin, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, copper and ma...

CVS Will Only Sell Supplements That Have Been Third-Party Tested for Safety
CVS Pharmacy announced May 15 that it will only sell vitamins and supplements that have been third-party-tested for safety and label accuracy, in an effort to bring order to the notoriously under-regulated world of health and dietary aids. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not vet the contents of vitamins and supplements. The agency primarily intervenes when problems are reported and a product needs to be removed from the market, so supplements can hit stores bearing their manufacturer’s unchecked claims. Studies have shown that many supplements for sale—particularly those intended for weight-loss&mdas...

Breakfast Cereal Box Nutritional Claims Found To Misleading
BOSTON (CBS) — People often choose their breakfast cereal based on health claims made on the packaging, but a series of new studies finds those claims often don’t match the nutritional content of the product. “High in Calcium,” “High in Vitamins,” “Gluten-Free,” and “All Natural” are often featured in bold print on the front of cereal boxes, but are they true? Researchers from Europe and Vanderbilt University looked at hundreds of cereals and found that consumers seemed to be drawn more to claims based on the presence of something good, rather than the absence of ...

Columbia researchers examine how our brain generates consciousness -- and loses it
(Data Science Institute at Columbia) In a first of its kind study, researchers from Columbia's Rafael Yuste's Laboratory used cellular resolution in vivo two-photon calcium imaging in mice to investigate changes in the local repertoire of neuronal micro states during anesthesia. The team found that anesthesia disrupts the number of neural patterns by reducing both network micro states and neuronal ensembles in the cortex, and confirmed their findings in micro electrode array recordings from two human subjects. Their results are published today in the journal 'Cell Systems.' (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Architecture of the heteromeric GluA1/2 AMPA receptor in complex with the auxiliary subunit TARP {gamma}8
AMPA-type glutamate receptors (AMPARs) mediate excitatory neurotransmission and are central regulators of synaptic plasticity, a molecular mechanism underlying learning and memory. Although AMPARs act predominantly as heteromers, structural studies have focused on homomeric assemblies. Here, we present a cryo–electron microscopy structure of the heteromeric GluA1/2 receptor associated with two transmembrane AMPAR regulatory protein (TARP) 8 auxiliary subunits, the principal AMPAR complex at hippocampal synapses. Within the receptor, the core subunits arrange to give the GluA2 subunit dominant control of gating. This ...

Amygdala ensembles encode behavioral states
Internal states, including affective or homeostatic states, are important behavioral motivators. The amygdala regulates motivated behaviors, yet how distinct states are represented in amygdala circuits is unknown. By longitudinally imaging neural calcium dynamics in freely moving mice across different environments, we identified opponent changes in activity levels of two major, nonoverlapping populations of basal amygdala principal neurons. This population signature does not report global anxiety but predicts switches between exploratory and nonexploratory, defensive states. Moreover, the amygdala separately processes exte...

Near-atomic map of parathyroid hormone complex points toward new therapies for osteoporosis
(Van Andel Research Institute) An international team of scientists has mapped a molecular complex that could aid in the development of better medications with fewer side effects for osteoporosis and cancer. The near-atomic resolution images depict parathyroid hormone receptor-1 (PTH1R), a molecule that conveys signals to and from cells, interacting with two key messengers -- a molecule that mimics parathyroid hormone, one of the most important regulators of calcium levels in the body, and a stimulatory G protein, a molecule that mediates bone turnover.

Ultrapotent chemogenetics for research and potential clinical applications
Chemogenetics enables noninvasive chemical control over cell populations in behaving animals. However, existing small-molecule agonists show insufficient potency or selectivity. There is also a need for chemogenetic systems compatible with both research and human therapeutic applications. We developed a new ion channel–based platform for cell activation and silencing that is controlled by low doses of the smoking cessation drug varenicline. We then synthesized subnanomolar-potency agonists, called uPSEMs, with high selectivity for the chemogenetic receptors. uPSEMs and their receptors were characterized in brains of ...

Structure and dynamics of the active human parathyroid hormone receptor-1
The parathyroid hormone receptor-1 (PTH1R) is a class B G protein–coupled receptor central to calcium homeostasis and a therapeutic target for osteoporosis and hypoparathyroidism. Here we report the cryo–electron microscopy structure of human PTH1R bound to a long-acting PTH analog and the stimulatory G protein. The bound peptide adopts an extended helix with its amino terminus inserted deeply into the receptor transmembrane domain (TMD), which leads to partial unwinding of the carboxyl terminus of transmembrane helix 6 and induces a sharp kink at the middle of this helix to allow the receptor to couple with G ...
