...together, they form an empty sphere with many tiny cavities on its surface. These "pockets" can be filled with certain nitrogen-containing biomolecules, such as spermine, in a very stable fashion. The Korean researchers coupled spermine to the vitamin folic acid and packed these hybrid molecules into the c...

Protein found to shield pancreatic cancer cells from self-destruction

...agy in the cancer cells, which became riddled with cavities called vacuoles. When autophagy occurs, a double membrane forms around a cell organ, or organelle. This autophagosome then merges with a digestive organelle called a lysosome and everything inside is consumed, leaving the vacuole and a residue of ...

Chimpanzees found to use tools to hunt mammalian prey

...btain lesser bushbabies (Galago senegalensis) from cavities in hollow branches or tree trunks. Bushbabies are nocturnal prosimians that retire to such hidden cavities during the day. Although there was only one successful attempt in 22 recorded instances of the ch...

Scientists re-grow dental enamel from cultured cells

...scaffolds were then transferred into the abdominal cavities of rats, where conditions were favorable for the cells in the scaffolds to interact and develop. When removed after 4 weeks, the remnants of the scaffolds were found to contain enamel-like tissue. The key finding of this study was that even after the...

Encouraging results in pancreatic cancer research

...inistered over a two-week period in the peritoneal cavities of mice containing simultaneously transplanted tumors, PNC-28 caused complete destruction of these tumors. When delivered concurrently with tumor implantation, PNC-28 completely blocked tumor growth during the two-week period of administration and...

Hopkins scientists link immune response to 'ghost' parasites and severely congested sinuses

... "The epithelial cells lining the nasal and sinus cavities play an important role as first responders of the immune system," he says. "But when they are distracted fighting non-existent parasites, they cannot deal well with the very real microbes continuously coming into the nose." This, Lane notes, may...

Snakes' virtual glasses, leopard spots and all-optical transistors

... on terrorized passengers and crew thanks to small cavities near their snouts known as pit organs. The organs are sensitive to the infrared radiation emitted by warm prey such as rats, rabbits, and Samuel L. Jackson.

New egg freezing technique offers hope to hundreds of women

...ome eggs showed the development of vacuoles (small cavities that sometimes contain water, food or metabolic waste) in their cytoplasm. When TEM was used, more differences became apparent. These included: changes to the linkages between mitochondria (microscopic respiratory structures in the cytoplasm) and i...

Bones hold the key to blood renewal

...icine. Bones are really two systems in one. The cavities inside bones are filled with spongy bone marrow, in which stem cells divide and their daughter cells differentiate into all kinds of blood cells, including large numbers of immune cells for the body's defense. The hematopoietic (literally, blood-crea...

According to the American Lung Association, over 3 million people in the United States have been diagnosed with emphysema, and millions more are in the early stages of the disease before signs and s...

Study reveals classic symbiotic relationship between ants, bacteria

"Every ant species [that we have examined] has different, highly modified struct...

'Banana-jawed' fossil mammal linked to rare sound-producing skill

Now, DeBlieux would like to do the same for the fossil hyrax. "It would be really neat," he said, "to model their jaws so we could hear the sound these curious creatures a...
