Researchers isolated tissue from three different regions of the brain that are all known to play a role in responses to alcohol and other drugs of abu...

Cricket's finicky mating behavior boosts biodiversity

The scientists say their findings shed light on the role of individual choices in the evolution of species and the gr...

Variation in women's X chromosomes may explain differences among individuals, between sexes

The incomplete nature of X inactivation, demonstrated in the new study, means that at least 15 percent of the X-l...

An ecological speciation model for coral reef organisms may spur the development of a more synthetic treatment of speciation on land and sea. Coral reefs, like tropical forests, express a...

Arthritis: What Wnt wrong?

...ritic versus normal joints. While OA cells did not differ from controls, primary RA cells produced TNF-a, IL-1ß and IL-6 at levels 2- to 4-fold above controls. Importantly, this effect could be replicated in normal cells when they were engineered to express Wnt-7b, demonstrating the importance of Wnt-7b in ...
