Researchers shed light on shrinking of chromosomes

...nto two takes place. Like this, no long chromosome arms extend over the plane of division, because that could expose the DNA to serious mechanical damage.” The extreme condensation of chromosomes towards the end of cell division can also serve as a safety net if something goes wrong with chromosome sep...

...OVs). Deep sea ROVs are also equipped with robotic arms and suction devices that are used to collect species. "It's like a submarine that's manned from the surface," said Daly, who plans to head to Monterey Canyon later this year in hopes of finding more dead whales with A. pearseae roosting on the bon...

Cancer researchers add spice to research against rare neuromuscular disease

...culty speaking and swallowing, and weakness in the arms and legs. Patients are often diagnosed in their 30s and 40s, and while most live a normal life span, many patients end up using a wheelchair and have serious health difficulties. Currently there is no way to slow the progression or prevent the diseas...

Moonlighting enzyme linked to neurodegenerative disease

...Symptoms are mild at first: muscle weakness in the arms and legs, vision impairment and slurred speech, but eventually the symptoms progress and most patients become wheelchair-bound and succumb to heart failure later in life. There is no cure at this time, but Mayo Clinic researchers have identified muta...

MIT device draws cells close -- but not too close -- together

...f tools such as the microscopes or robotic control arms typically required by MEMS devices. Because cells communicate via signals transmitted both through the touching of cell membranes and through soluble molecules that flow between separated cells, biologists need to vary the spacing of cells to stud...

Researchers show that veins stiffen as we age

...uges, connected to computers, were placed on their arms and legs. An arterial cuff was attached to an upper arm to monitor blood pressure, and venous cuffs were placed around the upper thigh and upper arm to measure the blood flow to the limbs. As the cuffs were inflated over an eight-minute period, and...

Ancient birds flew on all-fours

Study shows how herpes infects cornea, evades immune cells

...pictures, it looks like the stroma cells form long arms that reach out and collect the virus particles, and then wrap around them, forming a sac, and bring them into the cell body," Shukla said. In phagocytes, ingested foreign particles are destroyed in the sacs, which are highly acidic. But even though...

Electronic chip, interacting with the brain, modifies pathways for controlling movement

... contraction of certain muscles, like those in the arms and legs. The possibility that these neural signals can be recorded directly and used to operate a computer or to control mechanical devices outside of the body has been driving the rapidly expanding field of brain-computer interfaces, often abbre...
