For many insects, winter survival is in the genes

...andful of other insects suggests that they have an arsenal of protective heat-shock proteins that are turned on almost as soon as the temperature dips. Until this new study, researchers knew of only two such proteins that were activated in flesh flies during cooler weather. "Insects need heat-shock protei...

...g conventional materials," Lynn explains. A bigger arsenal of tools may allow researchers to tailor films for specific applications. In addition to delivering DNA from stents, Lynn envisions using these nanoscale films to deliver DNA from other implantable devices. The films may also improve methods for en...

Selecting life: Scientists find new way to search for origin of life

... interest with the DNA microarray and ToF-SIMS, an arsenal of other techniques can be used to look at the details of the interactions. "What's particularly rewarding about this research is that it's an interdisciplinary effort from different areas of science--biology, chemistry and geology," reflected Ha...

Molecular 'signature' protects cells from viruses

Every cell constantly produces a whole arsenal of proteins. The instruction what is to be built comes from the cell nucleus: this is where the DNA is stored, the heredity molecule in which, so to speak, the construction blueprints for all cellular proteins are stored. If a particular protein is t...

A new understanding of how cells defend themselves against bacterial pore-forming toxins

...pore-forming toxins are a key weapon in the attack arsenal of some common and virulent bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus, well-known for its role in hospital-acquired infections, Streptococcus pneumonie, responsible for middle ear infections and pneumonia, and Helicobacter pylori, implicated in ulcers...

This area of study is so important because of the sheer number of drugs already on the market that could be made more effective by differential targeting....

Mice studies illustrate potential of chimp/human antibodies to protect against smallpox

...o existing vaccines that we can use to enhance our arsenal of medical countermeasures." Using a library of antibodies derived from the bone marrow of two vaccinia-immunized chimpanzees, the study researchers identified a pair of potent antibodies that target and neutralize the B5 protein, one of five key pr...

Discovering the first steps in transcription-coupled repair

...he production of altered proteins, cells deploy an arsenal of repair mechanisms to excise and replace defective nucleotides, reconnect broken strands, and patch up other kinds of damage. Transcription-coupled repair is unique: it targets repair to genes that are actively being transcribed into messenger RNA...

Moffitt-USF head toward first human trials of anti-cancer drug that targets protein AKT

...i-cancer drug that could add another weapon in the arsenal against several cancers, including tumors of the breast, ovary, colon, skin and prostate. The compound, tricirbine, was tested at various cancer centers from 1982 to 1996 and found to inhibit some cancers, but researchers failed to determine why. Th...

Venom doc tracks down snake bioweapons

... recruited and altered proteins for their chemical arsenal from other body tissues. This enabled snakes to develop more specific, highly potent toxins, ones that would cause their victims' bodies to turn against themselves upon injection. Over time, these newly derived toxins became a normal part of the sali...
