Japanese physiologist honored

This year’s winner of the Novel Prize in Physiology or Medicine has been awarded to a Japanese physiologist. Yoshinori Ohsumi’s experiments with baker’s yeast led him to discover how cells recycle themselves.

The process is known as autophagy, a Greek term meaning “self-eating.” Currently a professor at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Ohsumi first identified autophagy in the early 90s. Ohsumi found that when a cell is starved or damaged, it breaks down its proteins and non-essential parts.

Some of the contents are then recycled. They’re turned into energy or other new proteins. The Novel Assembly said Ohsumi’s research led to the discovery of what can happen if there is a problem with the recycling process. The assembly also said his findings could lead to the development of new treatments to tackle a range of diseases.

One thing I’d like to emphasize is that when I started this research, I didn’t think the study would help shed light on cancers or longevity. I want people to understand that’s how basic research works. I’d like to stress the importance of basic science.

Video shows what Japanese people think of Canada

YouTubers R and J asked several Japanese people what they thought of Canada and Canadians by asking trivia questions and their opinions. Very few people were able to say a famous Canadian except Justin Bieber, and no one could answer who the leader of Canada is. Also, when asked for negative stereotypes about Canadians, many responded that they couldn’t think of any.
