A Birth Control Pill For Men?
BOSTON (CBS) – Could we be closer to a birth control pill for men? Scientists have been trying to develop one for decades but now they may have a new unusual lead: a plant extract, called ouabain, that was used by African warriors and hunters as a heart-stopping poison on their arrows. In high enough quantities ouabain can damage the heart, not really what you want in a birth control pill for men, but it can also disrupt a protein in sperm thought to be important for male fertility. So researchers manipulated the extract so it wouldn’t be toxic and tested it in rats, and found that it interfered with the s...

Researchers discover new enzymes central to cell function
(Case Western Reserve University) Doctors have long treated heart attacks, improved asthma symptoms, and cured impotence by increasing levels of a single molecule in the body: nitric oxide. The tiny molecule can change how proteins function. But new research featured in Molecular Cell suggests supplementing nitric oxide--NO--is only the first step. Researchers have discovered previously unknown enzymes in the body that convert NO into 'stopgap' molecules--SNOs--that then modulate proteins. The newly discovered enzymes help NO have diverse roles in cells. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)
