Open microfluidic and nanofluidic systems

... Such a theory has now been developed. This theory addresses the strong capillary forces between substrate material and liquid and takes the ‘freedomâ€TM of contact angles at pinned contact lines into account. Such a contact line is visible in the upper right image in Figure 1. In such a situation, the conta...

Researchers develop rapid diagnostic tool for pathogen identification

... pulmonary disease. This new technology platform addresses important challenges for infectious disease identification—sensitivity and breadth. Mass Tag PCR provides the ability to be precise in identification, as well as the ability to apply current diagnostics to more than one pathogen at a time, thereby re...

FDA Announces Series of Changes to the Class of Marketed Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)

...s. The labeling of the prescription NSAIDs already addresses potential skin reactions. This current reexamination of the CV risks of NSAIDs began after Merck conducted a voluntary worldwide withdrawal of its COX-2 selective NSAID, Vioxx (rofecoxib), in September 2004. FDA will carefully review any proposal fr...

Hey's approach addresses shortcomings in traditional population genetic studies that rely on just one gene and that assume that population sizes have been constant over time. Studying levels of DNA sequence variation at a single genomic region, or loci, can offer insight int...

Dr. Holmes has also studied desert streams in the southwestern United States, stream/riparian ecosystems in France, and estuaries in Massachusetts. Dr. Holmes earne...

Researchers track down cause of a disfiguring bone disorder

... these long-range regulatory elements. "Our study addresses a fundamental issue with regard to the majority of the human genome that is noncoding in nature, and its potential impact on human health," Loots said. "Noncoding regions located far away from the genes they regulate are critical for normal gene expr...

New Scripps Oceanography project to study sediments and ecosystem restoration in Venice lagoon

One key recommendation addresses the fact that large parts of the population, especially in rural areas, still lack accurate information and emphasizes the need to find better ways both to inform the public and to overcome the lack of credibility that hampered previous efforts. Even...

Membrane research opens window to benefits for plants, humans

...said, is a landmark study in membrane channels. It addresses the mechanism of gating and regulation of plasma membrane proteins in full detail. "We could see how every single atom moves and how collective motions of a large number of atoms resulted in the opening of the channel," he said. Aquaporins -- discov...

The bioweapon is in the post

...the scope of these checks varies widely. But email addresses are notoriously easy to fake. And even orders from legitimate institutions may not be what they seem. Alfred Lasher, who manages Picoscript in Houston, Texas, says that he turned down one orderplaced by an individual at a US biotech firm, after Picos...

Molecule by molecule, new assay shows real-time gene activity

...alysis to highly expressed genes. Xie's new assay addresses all three limitations. He and his colleagues melded a yellow fluorescent protein called Venus with Tsr, a hydrophobic membrane protein. The inclusion of the Tsr domain serves to anchor the fused protein to a cell's membrane, sidestepping the longstan...

Parkinson's disease mechanism discovered

Lindquist and her colleagues had conducted a genetic screen in yeast to discover genes whose activity affected the toxicity of alpha-synuclein. That study showed that ge...

When it comes to gene transcription, random pauses aren’t quite so random, study finds

...st wrong." What causes pauses? The study also addresses a long-standing question about enzyme memory: If an enzyme pauses at one DNA site, will it alter its behavior when it encounters the same sequence again? "It turns out that RNAP enzymes may have individual personalities, but no memories," Herbert exp...
