A frog's life is food for thought

...ittle is known about the effects of prolonged food deprivation on the gut of animals that go without food for long periods. Ms Cramp's study is helping explain why animals such as the green-striped burrowing frog are able to gorge themselves on huge meals without overwhelming their digestive system. "Nothing wa...

Discovery Promises Simpler Therapy for Sickle Cell Disease

...the disease's primary symptoms -- including oxygen deprivation and blocked vessels that can lead to pain, clots and stroke. Thus, therapies that restore nitric oxide to blood cells might serve as a useful method for treating the disease, said HHMI researcher Jonathan Stamler, M.D., professor of pulmonary medicin...

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

...to adult levels. In fact, past findings that sleep deprivation for two to three weeks can be lethal in rats and flies has led to the belief that sleep is critical for the development of brain and body and serves a vital function in adults. The ability to remain active and responsive after birth has several appa...

New study finds how cells with damaged DNA alert the immune system

...of abuse, including heat shock, pH changes, oxygen deprivation and starvation. However, the only type of stress that set off the sequence of events associated with impairment of a cell's genetic material -- the DNA damage pathway -- was exposure to radiation and chemotherapy drugs.

Hunger in America rises by 43 percent over last five years

... 1999-2001. "With this astonishing level of food deprivation in America," Brown concluded, "we need President Bush to step up to the plate. If he now asks Congress to cut federal food programs, hunger will increase even further. We need the moral leadership to stem this crisis." ...

Once-dreaded leprosy 'replaced' by tuberculosis, say researchers

...tuberculosis. This was exacerbated by the lives of deprivation that the lepers were forced to live as social outcasts. Ultimately, the scientists theorize, so many of the lepers died of tuberculosis until there were too few of them to further spread leprosy. TB, meanwhile, was increasingly on the rise as people...

Molecular cabal contributes to stroke damage

...lecular effects. Their analyses revealed that such deprivation triggered NMDARs, which in turn activated an important cell switch called CaMKII. This enzyme, they found, acts on a particular ASIC, called ASIC1a, to greatly enhance its sensitivity to the acid induced by ischemia. This increased sensitivity causes...

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

...cognitive deficiencies following 24 hours of sleep deprivation have previously been shown to be comparable to the effects of alcohol intoxication, he said. The study appears in the Jan. 11 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Study authors included Wright and Adam Wertz of CU-Boulder's int...

Losing sleep undoes the rejuvenating effects new learning has on the brain

And now scientists are beginning to understand how that happens: Learning spatial tasks increases the production of new cells in an area of the brain involved with spa...

Sleep deprivation doubles risks of obesity in both children and adults

Surprising symbiosis: Glassy-winged sharpshooter eats with friends

...colleagues have discovered that the sharpshooter's deprivation diet is sneakily supplemented by not one, but two co-dependent bacteria living inside its cells. Although insect-bacteria symbiosis is common, this is the first genomic analysis of three partners. In the study, a team of scientists led by TIGR micro...
