Scientists discover structural clues to calcium regulation in cells
The process of energy generation by mitochondria is closely tied to intracellular calcium regulation by a membrane gateway inside mitochondria known as the mitochondrial Ca2+ uniporter (MCU). How MCU regulates calcium uptake has been unclear, but the recent structural discovery of a key MCU domain points toward the involvement of two ions -- calcium and magnesium -- opening new paths to the development of MCU-modulating agents for the treatment of diseases involving mitochondrial dysfunction.

UPDATE: How Much Vitamin D Should You Take?
Conclusions What is the sweet spot for vitamin D and longevity? All studies are in agreement: 40-50 ng/ml. If I had a (working) magic wand, I'd make this range much broader - but, there it is. Since it is narrow, let's cover the main sources of Vitamin D and figure out how you can get to the exact target. Sources of vitamin D We get vitamin D from supplements, sun and food--and in that order for most of us. Food Considering that we need thousands of IU's of vitamin D per day, food doesn't have that much. Some of the highest sources have only a few hundred units.

Why It Takes So Long To Go To Bed And Fall Asleep As You Age
Having turned 70, I know I am officially old. Granted, aging has slowed me down a bit. I walk slower, take longer to remember things, and have a harder time getting up from the floor when I play with my grandkids. But going to bed? Why has that become such a long process? I remember quickly washing my face, brushing my teeth, and plopping myself into bed. Once I had kids, I generally fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. If I didn't sleep through the night, one of my children had caused the broken night's sleep. Nursing. Bad dreams. Illnesses. And waking up before 7 a.m., even with young kids, was a real drag. F...

Interstellar dust (ISD) is the condensed phase of the interstellar medium. In situ data from the Cosmic Dust Analyzer on board the Cassini spacecraft reveal that the Saturnian system is passed by ISD grains from our immediate interstellar neighborhood, the local interstellar cloud. We determine the mass distribution of 36 interstellar grains, their elemental composition, and a lower limit for the ISD flux at Saturn. Mass spectra and grain dynamics suggest the presence of magnesium-rich grains of silicate and oxide composition, partly with iron inclusions.
