Novel ultrafast laser detection of cancer cells also may improve understanding of stem cells

...spectra distinct from cancer?" A difficulty still ahead is viewing cancer cells in fluids taken directly from the body, rather than isolated by type in a flask. This problem will be solved by winnowing out unlikely particles through size and frequency. ...

Glow-in-the-dark zebrafish at UH hold keys to biological clocks

...ic genes that create the anomaly. Putting UH a bit ahead of other institutions engaged in this type of research, Cahill and his team will be able to analyze more than 2,000 zebrafish per week. The per3-luc zebrafish is the first vertebrate system available for this level of high-throughput measurement. "B...

Study reveals new technique for fingerprinting environmental samples

...information-rich data allowed researchers to forge ahead with studying genes important in disease processes, long before the completion of the entire human genome. "EGT fingerprints may be able to offer fundamental insights into the factors impacting on various environments," said DOE JGI Director, Eddy R...

The circadian clock: Understanding nature's timepiece

...e says it could one day be possible to move people ahead eight hours simply with a pill and light therapy. All terrestrial organisms ?even single-celled organisms ?have circadian rhythms. In some cases, the circadian clock contributes to survival strategies as simple as not drying out when the sun comes u...

Gaining ground in the race against antibiotic resistance

...the week of September 19, 2005. Staying one step ahead of resistance with new antibiotics and treatments for infections is a huge challenge because bacteria evolve quickly to evade them. When the scientists introduced random mutations into the gene for a bacterial resistance enzyme and grew the bacteria ...

Study provides insight into cellular defenses against genetic mutation

...NA chain. If a stop reading signal occurs too far ahead of the final exon in the chain, as marked by an exon-exon junction complex (EJC), the cell concludes that the stop codon has mistakenly fallen in the middle of a set of instructions. Specifically, Medical Center researchers now believe a stop codon i...
