Studies to find better ways to preserve human eggs, ovarian tissue under way

...es and still get no ice formation,” says Dr. Song, adding that ice formation aside, it is difficult to thaw rock-solid tissue at room temperature in a matter of seconds, meaning the current approach could have extremely limited use. A study he published in March 2000 in Nature Biotechnology showed the ap...

Exploring the dark matter of the genome

...tend to become more abundant near the centromeres, adding up to hundreds of thousands or even millions of bases in length. In these "seas" of satellite DNA there are "islands" of moderate-length repeats totaling only tens or hundreds of kilobases, made up of transposons or fragments of transposons. In o...

In nature, proteins sweep up nanoparticles

...ial to control their mobility in the subsurface by adding constituents that drive aggregation,” says Banfield. The scientists also sought to understand the mechanism by which proteins promote nanoparticle aggregation. They found that the presence of cysteine, an amino acid that is a building block to mos...

How plague-causing bacteria disarm host defense

...cies could still be a threat today," said Navarro, adding that scientists had isolated an antibiotic-resistant strain of this species. In addition Y. pseudotuberculosis and Y. enterocolitica are big words for nasty, little bugs that cause what's commonly known as food poisoning. All three bacteria species...

'Virtual Patient' to simulate real-time organ motions for radiation therapy

...When used in conjunction with existing 3-D models, adding the fourth dimension of time could significantly improve the accuracy and effectiveness of radiation treatment for lung and liver cancers. X. George Xu, professor of nuclear and biomedical engineering, and Suvranu De, associate professor of mechan...

Human stem cell treatment restores motor function in paralyzed rats

...and enhance their therapeutic benefit,” Johe said, adding that the goal is to provide a significant gain in functional mobility of the patient’s legs. This study builds on Marsala’s previous work in rat models using human neuronal stem cells, published in October 2004 in the European Journal of Neuroscie...

Alien plants attack using 'resource conservation' as weapon, researchers say

Anthrax paralyzes immune cells with lethal toxin, UF research shows

...that patients with anthrax bleed," Southwick said, adding that victims of inhalational anthrax often suffer hemorrhages in their lungs and lymph nodes. "No one understands why, and it could very well be due to paralysis of platelets." During and Southwick are currently looking for additional proteins target...

Scientists see DNA get 'sunburned' for the first time

... molecule. UV light excites the DNA molecule by adding energy, said Bern Kohler, associate professor of chemistry at Ohio State. Some exited energy states last a long time, and others a short time. The energy often decays away harmlessly, but occasionally it triggers a chemical reaction that alters the D...

New success in engineering plant oils

...KASII that normally elongates fatty acid chains by adding two carbon atoms. The longer 18-carbon chains are more likely to be acted on by enzymes that desaturate the fat. So the scientists hypothesized that if they could prevent the chain lengthening by reducing the levels of KASII, they could decrease the ...

UCI scientists reconstruct migration of avian flu virus

...igration of H5N1 through its evolutionary history, adding new details that identify the relative importance of the geographic and evolutionary advances the virus makes. From 192 samples obtained across Eurasia, the UCI team reconstructed the virus's geographic reach and evolution. The analysis shows that...

Scientists genetically engineer tomatoes with enhanced folate content

...m in many underdeveloped countries, however, where adding folic acid is impractical or simply too expensive. "There are even folate deficiency issues in Europe, where addition of folic acid to foods has not been very widely practiced," Gregory said. "Theoretically, you could bypass this whole problem by ...

Cambodian vulture nests offer hope for species

MIT model helps researchers 'see' brain development

...t 42 points that shows only the coarsest folds. By adding more points, she created increasingly finer-grained domains of smaller, higher-resolution folds. Finally, Yu modeled biological growth using a technique recommended by Grant that allowed her to identify the age at which each type of fold, coarse o...

New details on how the immune system recognizes influenza
