Rats infected as newborns grew up vulnerable to memory problems during an immune challenge

... stored. The early alterationS may be to the basic architecture of glial cells called astrocytes within the hippocampus, which in turn help the central nervous system respond to injury or infection. Because astrocytes also help to determine the number and connectivity of nervous system synapses early in life, esp...

Two are better than one

... for distinctly different attachment points on the architecture of the receptors, resulting in the assembly of a large, springy molecular scaffolding between the receptor towers. The interlocking system grips and pulls the receptors towards each other until they collapse inward like overloaded laundry lines. The ...

The genetic origins of corn on the cob

...ferent levels of activity have a big impact on the architecture of the plants," says Dr. Robert Martienssen of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, who led the study. "The ramosa1 gene appears to be a key player in the domestication of corn, and we've shown that it acts by signaling cells to form short rather than long...

A bug's life: Exceptional genomic stability yet rapid protein evolution in a carpenter ant mutualist

... despite having precisely maintained their genomic architecture over long periods of evolutionary time. In their report, published today in the journal Genome Research, the scientists discuss this model in the ecological context of host-symbiont interplay. "Symbiosis is an important driver of evolutionary novelt...

Brains response to visual stimuli helps us to focus on what we should see, rather than all there is to see

Delving ever deeper into the intricate architecture of the brain, researchers at The Salk Institute have now described how two different types of nerve cells, called neurons, work together in tiny sub-networks to pass on just the right amount and the right kind of sensory information. Their study, pu...

New research demonstrates bone-marrow derived stem cells can reverse genetic kidney disease

...mal's kidney function and repair of the glomerular architecture defects. "These results offer a possible therapeutic opportunity for both children and adults with Alport syndrome," he says. In addition, the new findings demonstrate that bone-marrow-derived stem cells can be used to repair extracellular/basement ...

How nerve cells stay in shape

...e brain-specific Staufen2 protein was missing, the architecture of the synapses was severely disturbed. Instead of a number of mushroom-shaped dendritic spines, the cell only produced long, thin protuberances (see image 2), similar in shape to immature synapses. A more detailed analysis of the actin cytoskeleton ...

UC San Diego partners with Venter Institute to build marine microbial genomics cyberinfrastructure

...or on both the OptIPuter and CAMERA projects. "The architecture is quite general and will be quickly adaptable to other areas of data-intensive science." Collaboratories are virtual laboratories where scientists can collaborate on research from dispersed locations--interacting with colleagues, accessing instrume...

Mouse to man: The story of chromosomes

...genes between species coincide with changes in the architecture of the chromosome itself. In some cases, DNA repeats get in the way. In others, there are rearrangements of the genome that occur during the process of cell reproduction. "As we go up the mammalian line, and particularly in primate, it is obvious t...
