Rice scientists unveil 'nanoegg'

...ve and the other negative ?much like a magnet that attracts on one end and repels on the other. "Without a dipole moment, there is no 'handle' for light to grab hold of," Nordlander said. "In symmetric nanoshells, most of the light energy is lost to these 'dark modes.' With symmetry breaking, we are able to...

Proteins spur diabetic mice models to grow blood vessels, nerves

...nding author. "We now have a (growth) factor that attracts both blood vessels and nerves--that's why it's unique for diabetes," Li said. "This demonstrates that netrins are critical for development and may be important as a new therapy." Li and fellow researchers from the University of Utah and Stanford alr...

...ng Li, an earlier doctoral student of Sorensen -- attracts the females to males. After spawning, which takes a few weeks, the adults die. It has taken Sorensen and his colleagues about 15 years to find, isolate and purify the pheromone so that Hoye and his colleagues could identify and synthesize it. The k...

Gradient guides nerve growth down spinal cord

The same family of chemical signals that attracts developing sensory nerves up the spinal cord toward the brain serves to repel motor nerves, sending them in the opposite direction, down the cord and away from the brain, report researchers at the University of Chicago in the September 2005 issue of ...

Unusual antibiotics show promise against deadly 'superbugs'

...ehaves in the body. For example, collagen normally attracts cells to close up a wound and form scar tissue. But this property is not always desirable; a clot can be dangerous inside a blood vessel or at certain injury sites, where scar tissue can interfere with the formation of new nerve connections.
