Math model predicts cancer behavior

Vito Quaranta clicks on a small black dot on his computer screen. The dot ?which represents about a thousand cancer cells ?begins to "grow," morphing into a mass with finger-...

Study may help slay 'Yellow Monster'

...mental exposure to uranium from mine tailings that dot the landscape across the Navajo Nation. "When the uranium mining boom crashed in the '80s, it really crashed and there wasn't much cleanup," Stearns said. Estimates put the number of abandoned mines on the Navajo Nation at more than 1,100. NAU sen...

New technique helps identify multiple DNA regulatory sites

...ss chip printed with up to 500,000 tiny dots. Each dot comprises multiple DNA molecules of known sequence, i.e. a piece of an individual's genetic code. Scientists use DNA microarrays to discover and analyze a person's DNA or messenger-RNA genetic code. This allows for, say, the early diagnosis of liver ...

Tagging pathogens with synthetic DNA 'barcodes'

...the color codes of individual beads. Another is by dot blotting, in which the sample is spread on a sheet of absorbent paper and made visible to the naked eye. Or the color can be observed directly through a fluorescent light microscope, which is useful in situations where the geographic distribution of ...

Young Blood Revives Aging Muscles, Stanford Researchers Find

...alled satellite cells, the muscle stem cells, that dot muscle tissue. These normally lie dormant but come to the rescue in response to damaged muscle-at least they do in young mice and humans. In older mice the satellite cells hold the same position, but are deaf to the muscle's cry for help. In the Nat...

Nanoparticles offer new hope for detection and treatment

...articles are a few thousand times smaller than the dot above this "i," yet each can carry about 100,000 molecules of the metal used to provide contrast in MRI images. This creates a high density of contrast agent, and when the particles bind to a specific area, that site glows brightly in MRI scans. In ...

Nano-Probes Allow an Inside Look at Cell Nuclei

Next, they stole a trick from a virus's playbook to smuggle this nanocrystal past the highly selective membrane that guards the entrance into the nucleus. In nature, a virus called SV40 is coated with a protein that binds to a cel...
