Man and mouse share genome structures

...sands of base pairs in length, that are completely covered by tags." The researchers speculate that these unique chromatin structures could be activating sets of HOX genes for specific developmental programs. This global activation may have implications for understanding mechanisms behind certain cancers, B...

Tiny particles could solve billion-dollar problem

...loped by Wong that consists of a gold nanoparticle covered with a thin coat of palladium atoms. As metal particles get progressively smaller, a higher percentage of the atoms in the particle are found on the surface of the particle instead of being locked away inside the metal where they cannot interact wit...

Imaging Lymph Nodes with Nanoparticles

...a centralsuperparamagnetic iron oxide core and are covered by dextran, impartinglong circulation times and biocompatibility. When injectedintravenously, the nanoparticles localize to lymphoid tissue, and areinternalized into macrophages. There is then a decrease in signalintensity on T2- and T2*-weighted ima...

Protein Packages Found To Activate Genes; May Be What Regulates Development And Disease

...t relatively huge sections of chromatin completely covered with tags. This was not seen before by using standard techniques, or by studying one gene at a time. "Finding them was a complete surprise," Bernstein admits. HOX genes, as noted, play vital roles in embryo development. Understanding how they are re...

Open microfluidic and nanofluidic systems

...ve recently been developed, are substrate surfaces covered by molecular monolayers that can be switched by light, temperature, or electric potential. The experiments described in the PNAS study use a polymeric liquid that freezes quickly and can then be scanned directly with the tip of an atomic force micro...

Study shows nanoshells ideal as chemical nanosensors

...d consist of a core ofnon-conducting glass that is covered by a metallic shell, typicallyeither gold or silver. The metal shell "captures" passing light andfocuses it, a property that directly leads to the enormous Ramanenhancements observed. Furthermore, nanoshells can be "tuned" tointeract with specific wa...

Same mutation aided evolution in many fish species, Stanford study finds

...olved independently from marine ancestors that are covered head to hind fin in body armor. Although it's not clear why losing the armor is a benefit to freshwater fish, Kingsley noted that the unarmored fish are lighter and faster than their more burdened marine cousins. In an effort to learn more about how...

Ice core 'dipstick' indicates West Antarctic ice has thinned less than believed

...Ice Shelf, a part of a bay on the Ross Sea that is covered with floating glacier ice. "Then the whole thing spreads out like oil on water," Waddington said. The West Antarctic Ice Sheet once rested on the bottom of the bay all the way to its "grounding line" at the continental margin in the Ross Sea. Howev...

The BIOS Initiative - open source biotechnology is born

To sea or not to sea: When it comes to salmon sex, size sometimes doesn't matter

...d. Much of the present range of Pacific salmon was covered by thick glaciers some 10,000 to 15,000 years ago, so most current populations were founded by strays since then. Thus straying is just as fundamental an attribute of salmon as homing," he says. "Perhaps the offspring should be called strays only if...
