Scientists find genes involved in the battle between Hessian flies and wheat

... the doors are all locked. Then the larvae finally crawl down to the base of the plant and die. This is death by frustration." Hessian flies can be controlled by using specifically bred wheat varieties called resistant wheat cultivars. Infestations by the flies also can be prevented by planting wheat af...

McBride shows DNA detective work with paper-eating bacteria that 'glide'

...es him is that it's a "gliding bacterium," able to crawl rapidly over surfaces by an unknown mechanism, which is the main subject of McBride's research with another glider called Flavobacterium johnsoniae. The two microbes are not closely related. "You are more closely related to a fruit fly than these t...

Cancer-killing invention also harvests stem cells

...e vascular wall, seeking signals that tell them to crawl out of the bloodstream. This is how white blood cells migrate to bacterial infections and tissue injuries. King set out to find a way to duplicate this natural process. First, he noted that the selectins form bonds with the white blood cells wi...

Wheat can fatally starve insect predators

...ter the eggs hatch, the resulting tiny, red larvae crawl down to the base of the wheat where they feed on the plant. If the plant isn't resistant to the insect, the larvae inject chemicals from their saliva into the plant that completely alter the wheat's physiology and growth. ...

Giant insects might reign if only there was more oxygen in the air

Human stem cells delay start of Lou Gehrig's disease in rats

... days after injection. The rats were coaxed to crawl uphill on an angled plank, and their overall strength was calculated by considering the highest angle they could cling to for five seconds without sliding backwards. While all the rats grew progressively weaker, those injected with live cells did so ...

3-D model reveals secrets of metastasis

...e anti-cancer therapeutics. In these assays, cells crawl across the surface of a matrix, traveling in a single plane. But a new study indicates that this approach misses some crucial phenomena. Working in the labs of Whitehead Member Paul Matsudaira and MIT professor Douglas Lauffenburger, postdoctoral r...
