...volutionary biologist and professor of biology who directed the research. "Because land connections among continents have allowed land-dwelling animals to disperse freely over millions of years, the fauna of any one continent is usually a composite of many types of animals." Yellow and black spotted frog ...

Researchers demonstrate way to control tree height

...ich plants such as rice or wheat were created that directed less energy to height growth and more to development of stout stems and plentiful seed. In orchards, semi-dwarf fruit trees produce more fruit that is easier to harvest. The improvements in cereal yields have been credited with preventing the starvat...

3-D ultrasound scanner provides in-depth view of the brain

... member Srinivasan Mukundan of Duke Medical Center directed a needle into a particular region of the animal's brain, as is required in surgeries to drain cerebrospinal fluid and relieve pressure on the brain. In a second animal, the researchers made use of dyes to enhance ultrasound images of blood vessels in...

Surprising origin of cell's internal highways

...und that microtubules originating at the Golgi are directed toward the cell "front," or the leading edge, of motile cells. Since such an orientation is needed for directional migration, Kaverina hypothesizes that this subset of microtubules may influence cell motility by facilitating the transport of proteins...

Adult stem cells from human cord umbilical cord blood successfully engineered to make insulin

...y to large numbers and tweak them so that they are directed to create a needed organ. In this way, he said, physicians might avoid the usual pitfall involved in transplanting cells or organs from other people — organ rejection, which requires organ recipients to take immune-suppressing drugs for the rest of t...

Researchers from the University of Navarra analyze new kinds of cancer-fighting antibodies

... immune system. In this therapy the antibodies are directed to the immune system cells in order to provoke a stronger reaction against cancer. This has the advantage of exploiting a mechanism with an action distinct from the other strategies currently being used to treat cancer, and is capable of interacting ...

Need oxygen? Cells know how to spend and save

...oin with oxygen to form water. This final step is directed by the protein cytochrome coxidase, or COX for short. If electrons react with oxygen before reaching COX, they generate "free radicals" that can damage or destroy cells. The mitochondria are designed to produce energy without excess free radical prod...

OHSU lab finds meth receptor that could lead to therapy

...nd behavioral effects," explained Grandy, who also directed the groundbreaking research. "In our most recent article, we provide clear evidence that methamphetamine is a full and potent agonist of TAAR1. In other words, TAAR1 has the necessary features to be considered a real target of methamphetamine and...
