Discovery in orange cauliflower may lead to more nutritious crops

...content in staple crops." Other researchers have created "golden rice" by inserting several genes that increases the synthesis of beta-carotene. But this technique has proved less effective in many plants. Li's research, which increases a plant's ability to store beta-carotene, may offer an alternate and c...

Modeling the restless brain

... the human brain are connected. The computer model created by Sporns and Honey suggests that this very pattern of connectivity is crucial to generating and shaping brain activity in the resting and active brain. Empirical work on the human brain is challenging due to the fact that the brain's intricacies...

Alzheimer's disease to quadruple worldwide by 2050

Newly discovered antibody may be body's natural defense against Alzheimer's

...ersity of California at Irvine, who had previously created anti-oligomer antibodies in rabbits. Using techniques pioneered by Dr. Glabe's group, the NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell scientists were able to measure and extract the human version of anti-oligomer antibodies from IVIG and then demonstrate that...

Plastic that grows on trees

...ck. In fact, attempts at direct glucose conversion created so many impurities that it was simpler to start with the fructose, less common in nature than glucose. Zhang and his team, working with a high-throughput reactor capable of testing 96 metal halide catalysts at various temperatures, discovered that...

UCF nanoparticle offers promise for treating glaucoma

... now used in most eye drops. Seal and his team created a specialized cerium oxide nanoparticle and bound it with a compound that has been shown to block the activity of an enzyme (hCAII) believed to play a central role in causing glaucoma. The disease involves abnormally high pressure of the fluid ins...

"Our concern is that this action has the potential to delay development of important new therapies by cutting off a promising avenue of research," said Alan I. Leshner, the chief executive of...

New vaccine prevents CMV infection and disease in mice

...s. “Using a two-pronged approach, we successfully created and tested a vaccine in a mouse model with CMV that shows enormous promise for re-directing the body’s immune system, enabling it to fight the virus.” The mouse vaccine generates an immune response that protects against both infection and developm...
