The insect vector always bites twice

...ransmitted to the human host when the insect bites again to take another blood meal. Morbidity among infected people is therefore associated with the degree of exposure of the subject to insect vector bites.

New bacterium discovered -- related to cause of trench fever

...atches its owner or an unlucky visitor. They were again surprised to find that this microbe is the second Bartonella species to cause infection in AIDS patients. Like trench fever, cat scratch disease had been described in the early 1900s, but no one knew what bacterium caused cat scratch disease unti...

Columbine flowers develop long nectar spurs in response to pollinators

...llinators. Then the process stops, and only starts again when there is a change in pollinators. Whittall and Hodges proved this idea by testing the columbine genus Aquilegia, which is pollinated by bumblebees, hummingbirds and hawkmoths. They found that most of the columbines' nectar spur length evol...

Genetic roots of bipolar disorder revealed by first genome-wide study of illness

...e healthy group was pooled and scanned separately, again at a fraction of the cost of individual scans. The researchers then zeroed in on the gene variations that occurred more often in the people with bipolar disorder and examined them individually. An important issue in genetics research is that find...

Switching genes to overdrive improves muscular dystrophy symptoms in mice

...rodents were run on a treadmill for one hour, then again 24 hours later. Normal mice completed the runs easily on both days, while untreated MDX rodents were exhausted halfway through each run. The MDX mice with increased PGC-1alpha activity performed almost as well as normal mice on the first day; their p...

Gut research yields new anti-cancer approach

This "post treatment prophylaxis" is similar to the approach of giving travelers regular medication to protect them from infection, but can be applied opportunistically to people at high risk of infection in poor tropical communities...

When your brain talks, your muscles don't always listen

...n the upturn toward one peak and then it eases off again in the downturn toward a valley," Knight noted. Once recordings were completed at one site in the muscle, the electrode was repositioned to sample from other motor units within the muscle.

The viral plasmids turn into infectious viruses only in the top, differentiated layers of tissue. Previous work showed that the bovine papilloma virus hitchhikes by throwing out a thumb - in act...

University of Alberta researchers unravel intricate animal patterns

The results of the model suggest that if we want to better understand the aggregations we see in nature, says Eftimie, we should...

Smoking ban dramatically reduces air pollution in Irish pubs

Among the barworkers, the self-reported workplace exposure to environmental tobacco smoke was over 40 hours per week pre-ban, but dropped to about 25 minutes post-ban, showing a 99 percent decrease in exposure. Post-ban tests al...
