Coronavirus Uses Heparan Sulfate to Get Inside Cells
New research from the University of California and the University of Copenhagen into COVID-19 redefines the known mechanism of infection of human cells.
Scientists have found evidence of hot springs near sites where ancient hominids settled, long before the control of fire. The proximity of the hot springs indicates to the researchers that early humans could have used them for cooking.
Researchers from the University of Copenhagen are introducing a new biological concept in the fight against diabetes: glucagon resistance. Glucagon resistance or decreased sensitivity to the hormone glucagon increases the risk of type 2 diabetes. New research shows that glucagon resistance is particularly pronounced in people with fatty liver, and this may be the key to understanding the link between fatty liver and diabetes.
