Brain inflammation may be friend, not foe, for Alzheimer's patients

...hy people. It’s recognized as a critical player in bringing about much of the brain damage that follows a stroke and brain injury, so it’s no surprise that its presence in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients would be assumed to be part of the problem.

A new plant-bacterial symbiotic mechanism promising for crop applications

...in rhizobia is promising for future techniques for bringing these bacteria into association with different leguminous plants. It therefore becomes possible to increase agricultural production of a greater number of important plants, notably in tropical countries, while cutting down the use of fertilizers....

Endosome-mediated signaling in plants

...actually facilitate signaling through the cell, by bringing signaling components in contact with their activated receptors. Drs. Geldner, Chory and collaborators now extend the range of endosome-mediated signaling into the plant kingdom. The researchers show that the growth-promoting brassinosteroid recept...

Fat fish put obesity on the hook

Research project tackles 'regeneration' gap

...hen the body’s inherent healing powers. "We are bringing together the best of the developmental biology world with the best of the stem cell world and starting the conversation, with the focus on how to get regeneration to work in a mammal," said Edward Scott, Ph.D., a professor of molecular genetics and d...

Cracking the egg

... is fascinating. As we all know, the basics entail bringing together an egg and a sperm, a whole lot of cell division and growth, and sooner or later a young organism that carries a mix of genes from both parents. There are many startling events along the way, but one of the most fundamental and important is ...

An AIDS-related virus tricks cells to become tumors, new Penn study finds

...LANA to bind to tumor suppressors p53 or VHL, thus bringing them into the active ubiquitylation complex. Once in the complex, the tumor suppressors are targeted for degradation. Tumor suppressors, as their name implies, prevent or limit the growth of tumors in numerous ways. One way the tumor suppressors ...

Road-crossing in chimpanzees: A risky business

Crossing of man-made roads, sometimes necessitated by intersection with longstanding chimpanzee travel routes, presents a new situation that calls for...

Reef warns of sea level rise

Together these reefs indicate what occurred during the last big sea level rise. "At the time when this reef grew we know that atmospheric CO2 levels were ...

Memories: It's all in the packaging, scientists say

...rical evidence for how critical this region is for bringing the constituents of a memory together in the brain. "Memory is more than a sum of its parts. A complete memory of an event requires that the features of the event be brought together and processed by the brain as a common perceptual representation...
