New research indicates a 'troubled' greenhouse is brewing

... human consumption of hydrocarbons, and there is a danger that another similar outburst could be triggered by warming of polar and submarine ice due to human activities. Our little warming push could repeat the troubled times of 55 million years ago." However, Retallack says these findings indicate it is u...

Falling ants glide back to trunk to avoid dangers of forest floor

... the outer reaches of branches and are in greatest danger of being knocked off by wind gusts or passing monkeys. There is some evidence, Dudley said, that these ants sometimes purposely drop off the tree to avoid predators, evidently secure in the fact that they can glide back to the same tree. "To me, one...

Drug-resistant bacteria on poultry products differ by brand

...n, when raw poultry is handled in the kitchen. The danger of infection is heightened when this pathogen is resistant to antibiotics. Not only can the bacteria itself cause illnesses such as diarrhea in humans, but fluoroquinolones are some of the most important drugs used to treat a variety of infections, i...

Computational Method Speeds Mapping of Cell Signaling Networks

...a T-cell encounters a foreign invader, it relays a danger signal throughout the cell, activating it for a quick response. These signals prompt activated T-cells to multiply rapidly and send out molecular "distress signals" that attract other immune system molecules to battle the infection. Components in the...

Unlike other mammals, newborn dolphins and orcas stay active 24/7 during first months of development

...newborn cetaceans: Movement and wakefulness reduce danger from predators, help maintain body temperature until mass and blubber insulation develop, allow frequent respiration at the surface, and facilitate rapid growth of brain and body and related behavioral development. "Somehow these seafaring mammals h...

Why are coyotes getting more aggressive?

...tous in North America, but they rarely have been a danger to humans. Fearful of being hunted and trapped, these large carnivores have typically stayed in wooded areas and away from humans. But now that coyotes have started foraging in suburban areas, more research is needed to find out why and how to preven...

How HIV disables the cells' call for help

...y piece of a piece of the HIV virus, would pose no danger to patients as it lacks any ability to either infect cells or to reproduce. Rather, as the scientists note in their paper, the study of a destructive virus may contain important lessons on how to regulate the immune system. "Perhaps," says Cohen, "we...

Trio of plant genes prevent 'too many mouths'

...r for photosynthesis. They close when there is the danger that the plant tissue may lose too much moisture. "Specialized cells open and close the stomata, much like opening and closing a mouth," says Keiko Torii, UW assistant professor of biology. Stomata too close together can't operate effectively. Unde...

UCLA scientists reveal how Nipah virus infects cells

...diseases that kill up to 70 percent of patients ?a danger level equivalent to the Ebola virus. To infect a cell, viruses must bind to a viral-specific receptor on the cell's surface in order to penetrate it. Lee's team identified a cell receptor called Ephrin-B2 as the key used by the Nipah virus to unlock...

LIAI scientists make major finding on potential smallpox treatment

"We used new techniques that we developed that made it easier to identify and isolate antibodies from the blood of immunize...

Corn grain mould used as pesticide

...the non-toxic mould for use en masse. There is no danger of additional damage as a result of 'inoculating' the fields with mould, it is claimed. "It can scarcely be prevented that maize or nuts will be infected to a certain extent with brown mould," Sebastian Kiewnick emphasises. "We can only influence whi...

No single gene for ageing

This topic was of great interest at the seminar for ageing at the conference "Functional genomics and disease" taking place in Oslo, Norway. Thomas Kirkwo...

Scientists get first glimpse at how plants, most animals repair UV-damaged DNA

...g said. But even within that short time, there's a danger of the donated electron jumping back to the photolyase enzyme before the repair is done. Zhong's work has revealed how the water in the pocket performs a critical function at this point. When the photolyase enzyme becomes excited, it jostles the wa...

Preventing a pandemic: Study suggests strategies for containing a flu outbreak

...matched vaccine could be produced," she said. The danger of avian flu is that the virus could develop into a new strain that could be transmitted among humans. The virus might mutate, or it might jump over to a human already infected with the flu and then mix, or "reassort," with the human flu virus. Becau...
