"The routine use of machine preservation for ECD kidneys may lower hospital costs by reducing complications," said Stratta. "In addition, it may ...

Bioluminescence at the service of a novel cerebral imaging technique

... Drosophila) induces a secondary response which is delayed by about 10 to 15 minutes at the level of neuronal axonal projections. It is therefore probable that this new response (hitherto totally unsuspected) intervenes in learning and memory phenomena. Furthermore, using this imaging technique, it has...

Neural bottleneck found that thwarts multi-tasking

...leted," Dux said. "Neural activity seemed to be delayed for the second task when the two tasks were presented nearly simultaneously ?within 300 milliseconds of each other," Marois said. "If individuals have a second or more between tasks, we did not see this delay. "This temporal delay is the essence o...

Study of planarians offers insight into germ cell development

...germ cells until several days after hatching. This delayed initiation of germ cell growth is called inductive specification, and is common to mammals and a number of other animals. Graduate student Yuying Wang and the other team members were able to show that nanos is essential for inductive specification...

Global changes alter the timing of plant growth, scientists say

...mulating future conditions. But plant growth was delayed by elevated carbon dioxide, consistent with the fact that grasses--which make up the majority of plants in this system--were flowering later. "Unless the growing season is extended, slower plant growth under elevated carbon dioxide could reduce the o...

Scientists discover way to block growth of prostate cancer cells

...tment significantly increased overall survival and delayed time to prostate tumour development. In repeat experiments, between 50-60% of mice treated with MDL survived ten to twelve weeks longer than the untreated control group. "To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a specific enzyme...

Lab-on-a-chip could speed up treatment of drug-resistant pneumonia

...tant infections with targeted antibiotics is often delayed by the need to identify bacterial strains by growing them in culture first. At this week's AVS 53rd International Symposium & Exhibition in San Francisco, Michael Lochhead, a bioengineer at the Denver biotechnology company Accelr8, described a ne...

Brain protein improves stroke symptoms in rats, even when injected after 3 days

... of the stroke. The study also shows that regular, delayed injections of G-CSF, starting up to three days after experimental stroke, are effective in restoring motor functions in rats. G-CSF is known to improve recovery after a stroke, and it is currently being tested for use in humans. The BMC Biology stu...

Zinc plays important role in brain circuitry

The resulting mutant mice showed tremors, delayed ability to right themselves when turned over, abnormal gait, altered transmission of visual signals, and an enhanced startle response to sudden noise. Electrophysiological studies of the mutant animals' brain and spinal neurons showed significant ...

The UCSD-Yale team found that a protein produced by the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt, given orally to laboratory hamsters infected with hookworms was as effective in eliminating the parasites, curing anemia and restoring weight ...

Vaccine combined with short-term postexposure antibiotics protects monkeys from inhalational anthrax
