They further showed that deletion of nhr-49 changed expression of 13 genes related to fat and glucose metabolism, with the most dramatic effects occurring within two metabolic pathways: mitochondrial lipid oxidation and fatty acid desa...

Children's taste sensitivity and food choices influenced by taste gene

...eals and beverages of PP children had higher sugar content than corresponding selections of AA children. According to study co-author, geneticist Danielle Reed, PhD, "The children most sensitive to PROP liked sweet more, but the reason for this relationship is not known.

New winter hulless barley has high protein

...e, ulless barley is significantly higher in starch content and significantly lower in fiber than traditional hulled barley," he said. Virginia Tech released the first winter hulless barley cultivar, "Doyce," in 2003. The breeding program is developing both traditional soft red winter wheat cultivars and new...

...ume and water content. Cells that lose their water content without being able to regulate its re-uptake die rapidly, Edgerton said. "Now that the target for histatin has been identified, we can design a better protein that will be even more effective in binding and holding the channel open, causing even bet...

Defenseless plants arm themselves with metals

...Salt and his colleagues have shown that this metal content is what makes the plants resistant to pathogens. Salt proposes a scenario in which at some point in evolutionary history some plants acquired a mutation that disrupts the salicylic acid signaling pathway, leaving them unable to fight off pathogens. ...

Scientists journey to southern Africa to unravel the secret world of elephant communication

... elephants and other species based on the spectral content of their footstep as they pass by a geophone array," says Jason Wood, who is leading the seismic censusing study. "The idea is to have geophone arrays that could be left in the ground for a month at a time, recording data without anybody having to be...

Novel gene-silencing nanoparticles shown to inhibit Ewing's sarcoma
