A new plant-bacterial symbiotic mechanism promising for crop applications

...to recognize it, by molecular recognition, thereby allowing the microorganism to penetrate inside the plant by the root hairs. The finding raises the question as to what signalling pathway Bradyrhizodium might use to gain entry to the plant and set off nodulation. The first observation was that the bac...

U-M researchers discover gene switched off in cancer can be turned on

...he researchers were able to turn the gene back on, allowing BRM to be expressed. The researchers found this gene is turned off in about 15 percent of tumors studied, including cells from lung, esophageal, ovarian, bladder, colon and breast cancers. The researchers were able to use existing drugs, which sho...

Leishmaniasis is one of the neglected diseases that desperately need new research, as WHO/TDR notes: "Treatment of visceral leishmanisis by first-line drugs is long (4 weeks), given systemica...

Adult stem cells from human cord umbilical cord blood successfully engineered to make insulin

...very that someday may help cure type 1 diabetes by allowing people to grow their own insulin-producing cells for a damaged or defective pancreas, medical researchers here have reported that they have engineered adult stem cells derived from human umbilical cord blood to produce insulin. The researchers anno...

Hearts of male and female rainbow trout are different

...hway) and pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH), the enzyme allowing carbohydrates to be oxidized -- differ between the sexes. The researchers hypothesized that male hearts would have higher citrate levels and females would benefit more from the stimulation of PDH than males. The study also sought to determine if...

'Insulator' helps silence genes in dormant herpes virus

...his one small region of the genome from silencing, allowing infected cells to survive," says study senior author Jumin Zhou, Ph.D., an associate professor at The Wistar Institute. The findings, appearing in the May issue of the Journal of Virology, mark the first time an insulator has been identified in a ...

New knowledge improves rice quality

... better tasting food. New scientific knowledge is allowing rice researchers to develop better quality rice varieties that could fetch a higher price from consumers, especially increasingly affluent rice consumers in Asia. The main aim of the new International Network for Quality Rice is to help rice bree...

World's leading scientists announce creation of 'Encyclopedia of Life'

...Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. "Technology is allowing science to grasp the immense complexity of life on this planet. Sharing what we know, we can protect Earth's biodiversity and better conserve our natural heritage." "For more than 250 years, scientists have catalogued life, and our traditiona...

Latent memory of cells comes to life

The effect of these changes can be that a latent capacity that was dormant comes to life, or, conversely, that a previously active capacity shuts down. Same inheritance ?different traits ...

Deconstructing brain wiring, one neuron at a time

The wiring map can be constructed step by step as subsequent populations of cells are imaged. The recombinant rabies virus could contain genes f...

Out-of-body experiences may be caused by arousal system disturbances in brain

Sleep paralysis is a common form of REM intrusion, which can cause a condition of temporary paralysis along with visual or auditory hallucinations immediately aft...

A 'traffic light' for neurons means 'go' for improving brain research

...lp patients, but they don't know precisely why. By allowing researchers to selectively stimulate or dampen different neurons in the brain, the new Stanford technique could help in determining which particular neurons are benefiting from deep brain stimulation, Deisseroth says. That could lead to making the el...

Researchers identify gene involved in dog size

..., which over the years have been selectively bred, allowing us to more readily analyze the genetic causes of particular traits than is possible in humans,?said the study’s senior author Elaine A. Ostrander, Ph.D., chief of NHGRI’s Cancer Genetics Branch. “Nearly all of what we learn from studying body structu...

Major gene study uncovers secrets of leukemia

...e polymorphisms function as flags for researchers, allowing them to detect specific deletions of DNA in a gene or increases in the number of specific genes at a level of detail that was previously unattainable. The St. Jude group used this approach to analyze leukemia samples from 242 pediatric patients with ...

UCSD researchers discover variants of natural tumor suppressor
