The long and difficult labors some expectant mothers face may someday be relieved by administering a cervical ripening agent along with an inhibitor of a naturally occurring enzyme, UT Southwestern Medical Center research shows.
Patients’ respiratory rates are often not accurately recorded in the hospital, researchers in UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Center for Patient-Centered Outcomes Research have found.
Chemists have long sought to develop new reactions for the direct conversion of simple hydrocarbon building blocks into valuable materials such as pharmaceuticals in a way that dependably creates the same chemical bonds and orientations. UT Southwestern researchers have hit upon a novel way to do that.
Measuring a set of proteins in the blood may enable earlier diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), according to a study from the Peter O’Donnell Jr. Brain Institute at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have found that a metabolic abnormality affects the quality of breast milk, leading to improper bone development in offspring.
UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have identified a feedback loop that precisely maintains levels of a metabolite essential for many cellular processes. Their basic science findings could have implications for many diseases, including cancer.
UTSW researchers have determined that cellular modifications of histones, a class of proteins that package our DNA, serve an unexpected metabolic function.
A study by UT Southwestern Medical Center scientists describes noncoding mutations in regulatory DNA sequences that protect against the adverse effects of pulmonary fibrosis, a lung disease.
UT Southwestern researchers have solved the crystal structure of the yeast version of a protein that is crucial for human development.
UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have found that a small number of mutated RNA molecules can have major consequences on neurodegenerative conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD).
