NASA study finds snow melt causes large ocean plant blooms

...ease in phytoplankton could therefore cause oxygen deficiencies in the Arabian Sea to spread, leading to fish mortality. Oxygen-depleted waters also provide the perfect environment for the growth of a specialized group of bacteria called denitrifying bacteria. These bacteria convert a nitrogen-based nutrient rea...

One gene links newborn neurons with those that die in diseases such as Alzheimer's

...n, studies from other laboratories have pointed to deficiencies in UCHL1 in degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. Experiments in mice confirmed the finding that low levels of UCHL1 correlate to the ability of neurons to be replaced. The researchers used similar techniques to assess UCHL1 in ...

Stem cell treatment improves mobility after spinal cord injury

... away through disease or injury, sensory and motor deficiencies result and, in some cases, paralysis can occur. The researchers injected these cells into rats that had experienced a partial injury to the spinal cord that impairs walking ability -- one group seven days after injury and another 10 months after inj...

Fundamental discovery -- Bone fracture

...iously unknown. Now the degradation mechanisms and deficiencies can be studied. "If you don't know something is important then you can't do anything about it. This is a fundamental and new discovery in an old and well-studied field," Hansma added. He noted that bone fracture is a serious problem for elderly peop...

Engineered molecule amplifies body's immune response

...plies to Stat1. Children who are born with genetic deficiencies of Stat1 are also very susceptible to infection. In the more severe case, the children die in infancy of fatal viral infections. In less severe cases, they later develop infections due to mycobacteria. When interferon levels are too high, for example...

Building a better mouse model of lung cancer: FHIT counts

...lost in many human lung cancers, and incorporating deficiencies in those genes with the current model will only make it stronger, she says, adding they're already working on it. Other Ohio State researchers who contributed to the study include Nicola Zanesi, adjunct assistant professor and research scientist, Ge...

...zone layer. There are also health problems such as deficiencies in the oxygenation of blood in breast-feeding mothers or the accumulation of nitrosamines, substances that are said to be cancerous, in the adult stomach. This is why it is necessary to find a balance between agricultural productivity and quality cro...

Morning grogginess more debilitating than sleep deprivation, according to CU-Boulder study

The study appears in the Jan. 11 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Study authors included W...

Metal homeostasis research in plants will lead to nutrient-rich food and higher yielding crops

...food in many of the countries with widespread Iron deficiencies in human diets. Guerinot's lab has previously identified the essential Iron transporter responsible for Iron uptake from the soil. This Iron transporter is IRT1. In addition to transporting iron, IRT1 can also transport Manganese, Zinc, Cobalt and...

Down syndrome, in which chromosomes do not divide properly in egg cells, also is thought to be caused by defects in kinesins. Finding methods...

Replacing insulin is top-ranked breakthrough foreseen for health in developing world

...maternal and perinatal conditions, and nutritional deficiencies combined. The authors say low and middle income countries as a group report 80% of all chronic disease deaths, over 95% of deaths due to infectious disease, and almost 90% of deaths due to injury and trauma. Even though developing countries suffe...

Artificial cornea offers better results for infants, some blind patients

... the patient's eyesight was often limited by other deficiencies in the eye. The partnership between Aquavella and Dohlman stretches back nearly half a century.

"Normally, fast association of the protein with other biomolecules is critical for the creation of proper cell structures. The failure of t...

Putting an old drug to a new use

We all know that iron deficiencies are dangerous, but also too much iron is bad for our health. Our body stores excess iron in various tissues, where it can lead to organ failure and even death if not treated before irreversible damage has occurred. Researchers from the Innsbruck Medi...
