Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...ent into the Pacific, it may be that phytoplankton closer to the source of that dust may be primed to respond differently. Wells and his colleagues will be studying the possibility that small variations in iron throughout the world's oceans may have important ecological consequences as well. Their results ...

Dinosaur DNA? New Patent Covers Degraded DNA recovery

...when properly applied by our scientists, brings us closer to our goal of reconstructing genetic history. We now have the picture on the outside of the puzzle box, and by stringing together the pieces of aged DNA, we should be able to reconstruct genes from animals such as the wooly mammoth, giant sloth, sab...

Nano-Probes Allow an Inside Look at Cell Nuclei

Biochemists report discovery of structure of major piece of telomerase; implications for cancer

... is what we're trying to understand. We're getting closer to answering this question." The structure reveals a "pseudoknot" that is required for telomerase activity, at whose core three strands of RNA come together to form a triple helix. All vertebrate animals investigated so far have nearly the identical...

Genetic therapy reverses nervous system damage in animal model of inherited human disease

...tly into the brain. "The brain of the cat is much closer in size to the human infant brain compared to mice. Thus we think that it may be possible to achieve similar results in humans with as few as 20 to 30 injections in each of the two hemispheres of the brain," Wolfe said. "We believe, however, we can f...

Cellular Defects in Premature Aging Disease are Reversible

...nline on March 6, 2005, brings scientists one step closer to understanding this devastating childhood disease and might provide insights into the normal aging process.
