Releasing fish for the future

...ling, between 30 and 50% of the total recreational catch is released each year in Australia. This amounts to more than 47 million fish being caught and released annually. New research is now seeking to maximise the post-release survival of other commonly-caught species including luderick, sand mullet, g...

Plants recognize their siblings, biologists discover

...better than others, and scientists are starting to catch up with why that happens,” says Dudley. “What I’ve found is that plants from the same mother may be more compatible with each other than with plants of the same species that had different mothers. The more we know about plants, the more complex their...

The kapok connection -- Study explains rainforest similarities

... said Dick, "and this study is one of the first to catch that process in action at the species level. Although single seeds are very unlikely to survive an oceanic voyage and then successfully become established elsewhere, such improbable events become probable over 10 to 15 million years." Dick studied...

Toxoplasmosis infection trick revealed by scientists

... to be infected, and around 1% of people in the UK catch toxoplasmosis each year. In the majority of cases, those affected don’t have any symptoms. But for those with weakened immune systems, and unborn babies, toxoplasmosis can cause very serious health problems....

Decoding protein structures helps illuminate cause of diabetes

With a grant from the National Science Foundation, Song and Goldberg programmed ACONE to distinguish birds from other objects and only record...

New test for most virulent HPV strains under study

...would continue to be used in the under-30 group to catch the few infections that become problematic in this age group. Currently, there are not FDA-approved drugs to cure cervical pre-cancers and cancers caused by HPV, although centers such as MCG are evaluating potential therapies. Resulting cervical c...

Microfluidic chip helps solve cellular mating puzzle

...st cells mate by sending out pheromone designed to catch the attention of nearby cells of the opposite mating type. When a prospective partner picks up this "scent," it alters its shape and sends a projection toward the source of the pheromone, leading to a cellular merger. This mating process is regulated...

When smell cells fail they call in stem cell reserves

...ault from harsh chemicals that one might happen to catch a whiff of by accident, risking damage or death. To figure out how the olfactory system repairs severely damaged nerve cells, Reed’s team exposed mouse olfactory nerves to a cloud of toxic methyl-bromide gas. Methyl bromide kills not only olfacto...

How does your brain tell time?

... behaviors -- from understanding speech to playing catch to performing music -- rely on the brain’s ability to accurately tell time. Yet no one knows how the brain does it." The most popular theory assumes that a clock-like mechanism ?which generates and counts regular fixed movements -- underlies ti...

Why don't all moles progress to melanoma?

...ss incoming amino acids, giving the ER a chance to catch up. If that doesn't work, the UPR causes the cell to destroy itself in a process called apoptosis. "Traditionally, the ER's role was considered to be limited to protein folding or protein modification," Soengas says. "But scientists like Randal Kau...

Transplanted brain cells hold promise for Parkinson's disease

An important question that remains is, ‘Can we rescue neurons that are dying from Parkinson’s"?This would more accurat...

Sex and the heart: It's not what you think

Commercial fishing causes dangerous fluctuations in fish populations

This means that fishing vessels could unwittingly overexploit t...
