Scripps research team sheds light on long-sought cold sensation gene

...ratures in favor of warmer areas. "It’s pretty amazing that one gene could impact thermal sensation this much," says Ajay Dhaka, a Scripps Research postdoctoral fellow in the Patapoutian lab and lead author on the Neuron paper. "It really highlights the importance of the peripheral nervous system and how...

Parasites' impact goes beyond host to affect ecosystem

... snails. "The parasite’s life cycle is a really amazing strategy for an organism that doesn’t have a brain," says Byers, who predicts that anywhere gulls are prevalent, the C. lingua trematode would also be prevalent. A laboratory experiment confirmed Wood’s and Byers?hypothesis: snails infected with t...

Male-killing bacteria makes female butterflies more promiscuous

...logy and a senior author of the study, said: "It's amazing that the numbers of male butterflies can get so low and yet the population is still sustainable and stable. You don't need many male butterflies to continue the population successfully. This is partly because the decision to mate is mainly under fema...

Remote sheep population resists genetic drift

...ed population will decrease over time. "What is amazing is that models of genetic drift predict the genetic diversity of these animals should have been lost over time, but we've found that it has been maintained," said Dr. David Coltman, an evolutionary geneticist at the University of Alberta. "We thi...

UTSA researchers examine effects of global warming on Antarctic

Stability of mRNA/DNA and DNA/DNA duplexes modulates mRNA transcription

...ems to modulate the level of RNA expression. It is amazing that the same nucleotide sequence can simultaneously encode its respective protein and modulate its level of expression." says Stoynov. The mechanism of how DNA/DNA and mRNA/DNA duplex stability influences mRNA level remains unclear. The authors pr...

Homing pigeons get their bearings from their beaks

...minute iron oxide crystals goes farther than their amazing ability to help pigeons home. Research into how they work has caught the interest of nanotechnologists concerning their potential application for accurate drug targeting and even as a data storage device. The main problem, however, lies in their sy...

Bats prey on nocturnally migrating songbirds

...much initial scepticism. As usual, a new major and amazing discovery generates a lot of sceptical reactions, which calls for gathering further, indisputable scientific evidence. Indeed, presence of feathers in diet was no ultimate demonstration of a bird-based diet, although indicative. New innovative approa...

No sex for 40 million years? No problem

...anisms. Dr Barraclough adds: "These really are amazing creatures, whose very existence calls into question scientific understanding, because it is generally thought that asexual creatures die out quickly, but these have been around for millions of years. "Our proof that natural selection has driven t...

Gene study shows three distinct groups of chimpanzees

...n though the chimp genome has been sequenced, it's amazing how little we know about their evolution and the level of variation within chimpanzees," said Przeworski. "These are our nearest relatives, closer to humans than they are to gorillas, yet we know so little about them, and even less about gorillas and...

Turtles are loyal in feeding as well as in breeding

...es between breeding and foraging grounds, so it is amazing that they are able to return to exactly the same sites via very similar routes. We do not yet know why they return to the same sites, but these findings give us a much better picture of the behaviour of adult turtles at sea, where they spend the majo...

Brain works more chaotically than previously thought

...he brain overcomes this obstruction by means of an amazing signal conversion: the synapse releases chemical messengers, known as neurotransmitters, which diffuse to the dendrites. There, they dock onto specific receptors and generate new electrical impulses. "It was previously thought that neurotransmitters ...

Researchers show that veins stiffen as we age

...system. Every minute, the steady beating of that amazing living pump--your heart--sends about five quarts of blood through the 60,000-mile network of arteries, capillaries and veins in your body. The muscular arteries carry blood away from the heart and out to your organs and limbs. Microscopic capillaries...

LSD treatment for alcoholism gets new look
