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).
Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have demonstrated a pathway by which abdominal fat, in particular fat surrounding the internal organs, may lead to type 2 diabetes.
