Hirsute Or Hairless? Two Proteins May Spell The Difference

...pmental stages, this study lays the foundation for dissecting the mechanisms that connect two key processes—intercellular remodeling and proliferation—in epithelial development. And since the consequences of TGF-β2 activity seen here in the hair bud more closely resemble certain types of skin cancer progression...

Scientists journey to southern Africa to unravel the secret world of elephant communication

... Stanford, and undergraduate Christina Alarcon are dissecting the foot of an Asian elephant that recently died at a zoo. Preliminary results reveal a high density of Pacinian corpuscles in the front of the foot and along the edges--a finding consistent with the notion that elephants are sensing seismic signals ...
