New microcrystal method determines structure of compound
FINDINGSWhen researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign discovered a small molecule that ’s created by cells in a completely new way, one of their first questions was what the molecule looked like. But none of the standard methods of determining molecular structure worked for them. So they teamed up with UCLA scientists who had developed a new approach to visualizing structure — cal led microcrystal electron diffraction, or MicroED. Using this approach helped the teams to confirm how the newly discovered molecular assembly pathway works.BACKGROUNDSome small molecules produced by bacteria ha...

Targeting a ceramide double bond improves insulin resistance and hepatic steatosis
Ceramides contribute to the lipotoxicity that underlies diabetes, hepatic steatosis, and heart disease. By genetically engineering mice, we deleted the enzyme dihydroceramide desaturase 1 (DES1), which normally inserts a conserved double bond into the backbone of ceramides and other predominant sphingolipids. Ablation of DES1 from whole animals or tissue-specific deletion in the liver and/or adipose tissue resolved hepatic steatosis and insulin resistance in mice caused by leptin deficiency or obesogenic diets. Mechanistic studies revealed ceramide actions that promoted lipid uptake and storage and impaired glucose utiliza...
