Mouse brain tumors mimic those in human genetic disorder

...nth-old mice, despite thefact that the tumors were actively growing only in the younger mice."If this finding is also true in humans, this strongly argues thatcontrast enhancement on MRI alone is not a reliable test of tumorprogression," Gutmann says.

Until now it was believed that the same synaptic vesicles were responsible for releasing neurotransmitters in both modes. However, new research ...

Why do insects stop 'breathing'? To avoid damage from too much oxygen, say researchers

...rmly for a long time. "In other words, insects are actively keeping oxygen out and doing it in a way that shows they know how to measure oxygen," Bradley said. "Their behavior indicates they are regulating oxygen." Bradley and Hetz will next work on developing a comprehensive model of insect breathing. "We'd...

Falling ants glide back to trunk to avoid dangers of forest floor

... Gliding ants ?the only wingless insects known to actively direct their fall ?were first observed last year outside Iquitos, Peru, by insect ecologist Stephen P. Yanoviak of UTMB. While perched 100 feet up in the rainforest canopy waiting for mosquitoes to alight and feed on his blood, Yanoviak casually brus...

Stealth Worms May Improve Insect Pest Control

...ees, the juvenile nematode waits for (or sometimes actively seeks) an unsuspecting host - a grub or a larva - to jump on it and penetrate it through the insect's natural openings - mouth, anus, spiracles. Or the nematode may enter the host directly by using a dorsal tooth. Once inside the insect, the nematod...
