Mesothelioma Cells Slowed by Grape-Seed Extracts
Extracts from two Italian grape varieties showed distinct anti-cancer activity in three different mesothelioma cell lines, according to a recent multicenter study in Naples, Italy. The in-vitro findings strongly suggest potential of a novel, nonconventional mesothelioma treatment advancement in the future for this aggressive, difficult-to-treat cancer. Previous laboratory studies have shown a negative impact of grape-seed extracts on breast, colon and skin cancer cells, but this was the first using multiple human mesothelioma cell lines. “Our study on mesothelioma seems very promising, but it is a preliminary analysi...

Drugs, money and your heart
I was really excited to see a recent headline that said heart doctors should discuss herbal medicines with their patients. The recommendation came from a study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.1 I thought this was a real breakthrough. I thought it meant cardiologists had finally seen the light… Boy, was I wrong… The article said doctors should learn about herbal medicines so they could STOP their patients from using them. You see, supplement use is at an all-time high. About 70% of Americans take them. That’s a lot of people. And Big Pharma would love to capture that market. So they...

Outfox Your “ Aging ” Gene
Some people just seem to have all the luck when it comes to getting old. Like my 83-year-old patient who drinks a little too much Scotch, but still has a 3-handicap in golf. Or the 108-year-old who goes through a gallon of ice cream every week. If you ask them how they do it, they’ll give credit to their good genes… and there is some truth to it. We all have something called a FOXO3 gene. It helps protect us against aging. German researchers at the Christian-Albrechts University studied the FOXO3 gene in 380-plus centenarians, more than 600 people in their 90s, and more than 700 people between the ages of...

Computational Identification of Protein Kinases and Kinase-Specific Substrates in Plants
The protein phosphorylation catalyzed by protein kinases (PKs) plays an essential role in almost all biological progresses in plants. Thus, the identification of PKs and kinase-specific substrates is fundamental for understanding the regulatory mechanisms of protein phosphorylation especially in controlling plant growth and development. In this chapter, we describe the computational methods and protocols for the identification of PKs and kinase-specific substrates in plants, by using Vitis vinifera as an example. First, the proteome sequences and experimentally identified phosphorylation sites (p-sites) in Vitis vinifera w...

Now, researchers have used frog eggs to determine the cause of this disease, and have found that a specific gene in the varietal Cabernet Sauvingon, contributes to its susceptibility.
