Walking Upright Saves Humans 75 Pc More Energy Compared to Apes

...y cost- longer hind legs compared to body mass and structural changes to the pelvic bone allowing for more upright walking. Analysis of these features in early fossil hominins, coupled with analysis of bipedal walking in chimpanzees, revealed that human walking was around 75 percent less costly, in terms of ...

Spacesuits of the Future Will Be as Flexible as Spidermans

...ur leg). Those lines provide a stiff "skeleton" of structural support, while providing maximal mobility. The trick is to make a suit that is skintight but stretches with the body, allowing freedom of movement, said Newman. Traditional bulky spacesuits do not afford the mobility and locomotion capability t...

Researchers Identify New Risk Marker for Obese Children

Researchers Reverse Mental Retardation Symptoms in Mice

...that halting PAK's enzymatic activity reversed the structural abnormality of neuronal connections found in the FXS mice. In the brain, small protrusions called dendritic spines on the branch-like dendrites of one neuron receive chemical signals from other neurons and communicate them to the main cell body. Th...

Researchers Discover How Antibiotic Inhibits Bacterial Growth

... "It was a combined effort of excellent chemists, structural biologists and biochemists," Mankin said. "We now understand much better how the drug works, how it can be improved, and how bacteria can become resistant to linezolid." A second part of the study involved learning why, in rare cases, the drug ca...

Decoding Protein Structures Helps Illuminate Cause of Diabetes
