Food antioxidant ergothioneine may aid survival of cancer-causing H. pylori

In a newly published Yale study, researchers have identified, an otherwise beneficial antioxidant compound, known as ergothioneine (EGT), may actually protect or selectively confer a competitive colonization advantage in host (stomach and duodenal) tissue, to the...
Neuropsin, a photoreceptor protein, can control circadian rhythm independent from the brain

Neuropsin, a photoreceptor protein, can control circadian rhythm independent from the brain

Our circadian rhythm is controlled by light, via photoreceptive proteins called “opsins”, like neuropsin and melanopsin.  Humans possess photoreceptors, like neuropsin, in just about every surface and subcutaneous area of the body – adipocytes (fat),...
