December Geosphere media highlights

... at ca. 6 Ma. A dramatic increase in summer thunderstorm activity resulted in integration of drainages, termination of closed-basin sedimentation, incision of uplifts, and exhumation of basin-fill sedimentary deposits. Such changes are usually interpreted as resulting from tectonic uplift; however, the ...

Iowa State researcher develops new treatment method for canine eye diseases

... inside miniature electrospun polymer capsules, and released inside the body over time." To insert the medicine, Grozdanic makes a small incision in the dog's conjunctiva, the white tissue surrounding the eye. He then closes the opening with one, tiny stitch. The entire process takes just a few ...

Stent grafts: a better way to treat blunt trauma injuries

Catheters can also be a source of bacterial infections, which can spread from the skin to the incision for catheter insertion, and have been known to cause anaphylactic shock resulting in death, according to Professor Griesser. Hospitals combat this ...

Discovering the first steps in transcription-coupled repair

... itself around the two strands of DNA with a "clamp module." Indeed, the researchers found that RNAPII bound to a transcription bubble prevented incision by XPG. To their surprise, however, adding another large protein machine called Transcription Factor IIH (TFIIH) allowed XPG to cut the DNA strand at ...
