Pesticides choke pathway for nature to produce nitrogen for crops

...sity of Oregon. "In essence, the agrichemicals are cutting the lines of communication between the host plant and symbiotic bacteria. This is the mechanism by which these chemicals reduce symbiosis and nitrogen fixation." Fox began the project as a doctoral student with John A. McLachlan, director of the C...

Researchers examine carbon capture and storage to combat global warming

...tanford researchers are exploring another path for cutting emissions of carbon dioxide, the leading greenhouse gas that causes global warming. Carbon capture and storage, also called carbon sequestration, traps carbon dioxide after it is produced and injects it underground. The gas never enters the atmosphe...

Mutating the entire genome

...e gene. The protein made by Cre acts like a knife, cutting the DNA wherever loxP is found. The offspring mouse, in turn, is bred with a normal mouse. In a “remarkably high” average of 10 percent of the offspring, the desired large stretch of DNA is either deleted or duplicated so scientists can see what ...

Anthrax paralyzes immune cells with lethal toxin, UF research shows

...eutrophils to move," said Southwick. "So it's like cutting the gas to the motor." Anthrax literally cuts the gas line. The toxin works like a pair of scissors, snipping off the ends of a key protein and preventing the transmission of messages within the cell. As a result, immune cells never receive the gr...
