Fasting (via FOXO) upregulates innate antimicrobials like cathelicidin
Fasting upregulates innate antimicrobials? Well, you heard it from me first. I stated quite a while back that fasting upregulates OCTN2 and this should, in turn, upregulate carnitine uptake, butyrate uptake and histone acetylation leading to enhanced expression of those genes under HDAC control - including de... 24 Jan 2010 03:34
Frankenfoods Are Coming!
Apparently some clever bioscientists have discovered a method of introducing wheat genes into potatoes.
