UCSB scientists probe sea floor venting to gain understanding of early life on Earth

...seafloor, without the need for drilling, making it easier to tease out what is living at depth in oceanic crust. The fluids that emerge may come in bursts when earthquakes occur; fluid flow may therefore repeat episodically over hundreds of thousands of years as abyssal hills are uplifted and spread away fr...

Bacteria collection sheds light on urinary tract infections

...are more likely to get UTIs than men because it is easier for the bacteria to reach their bladder. Fifty percent of all women will experience at least one episode of UTIs during their lifetime. UTIs are typically treated with antibiotics. The researchers found that the E.coli causing the UTIs matched genet...

Learning to fight an adversary that won't stay down

...o make the development of new antibiotic compounds easier and more productive. But in most cases the microbes continue to hold the upper hand ?and if three billion years of bacterial history is any kind of track record, we're in for an endless running battle, says Dr. Julian Davies, a microbiologist at the ...

BRCA1 causes ovarian cancer through indirect, biochemical route

...at's affected has been identified, it will be much easier to diagnose a predisposition to ovarian cancer or pinpoint just who is at risk, simply by measuring the chemical's levels. "The consequence of this finding," Dubeau says, "is that ovarian cancer is the result of some biochemical problem that may be ...

NC State scientist finds soft tissue in T. rex bones

...eaves supple, soft organic materials that are much easier to work with in a lab. In contrast, fossilized bone is believed to be completely mineralized, meaning no organics are present. Attempting to dissolve the minerals from a piece of fossilized bone, so the theory goes, would merely dissolve the entire f...

RNA project to create language for scientists worldwide

...d the consortium. "This," he added, "will make it easier to turn molecular information into useful knowledge that can help us to understand how different cells grow and develop as they do. This knowledge is key to curing hereditary diseases." The National Science Foundation is providing $500,000 for the f...

International HapMap consortium expands mapping effort

...ge number of new SNPs to the map will make it even easier for researchers to correlate genetic variation with gene function. Such information is crucial for the development of therapies and preventive strategies tailored to each person's unique genetic makeup," said Martin Godbout, Ph.D., president and CEO ...

Protein offers way to stop microscopic parasites in their tracks

...o work on," Sibley explains. "Because it's so much easier to study, we use Toxoplasma as a way to ask about very basic things that occur in all of these parasites." One area of enduring interest for Sibley and his colleagues has been the question of how Toxoplasma and other apicomplexan parasites move them...

Potential treatments for neurofibromatosis

...t they believe will starve the tumors. "It's much easier to develop targets against a non-malignant cell than it is the malignant cell itself," said Dr. Clapp. That's because the biological activities of non-malignant cells are stable, while malignant cells are constantly changing due to the genetic instab...

UCLA launches $20 million stem cell institute to investigate HIV, cancer and neurological disorders

... gene medicine and the GMP facilities will make it easier for us to translate our basic stem cell research into human therapies by using facilities and procedures already in place." The UCLA Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Medicine will focus its embryonic and adult stem cell research in three areas: ...

Emergence of cancer as major cause of childhood death in developing countries is not being adequately addressed

...nesis of particular cancers. Such studies would be easier to conduct if pediatric cancer units are created in resource-poor nations and if their development promotes international cell and tissue banks and the ability to collect long-term treatment follow-up data. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital St. ...

First technology to remove prions that cause vCJD from blood launched

...g in the UK and many other countries. This enables easier and more cost effective implementation of the new prion reduction filter into established good manufacturing practices. Unlike pathogen inactivation, the new filter does not rely on chemical additives, which could damage or compromise the therapeuti...

Double triumph in stem cell quest

...Verlinsky's claims stand up, there might be a much easier way to create matching ESCs. His method starts with an existing human ESC line. The nuclei containing the DNA of the ESCs are removed by spinning them in a centrifuge. Verlinsky would not reveal the details of his technique, but other teams glue cell...

Scientists discover that three overlapping signals in embryo help get the backbone right

...n laboratory frog Xenopus laevis. X. tropicalis is easier to work with, because it, like humans, is diploid, that is, it has only two copies of each gene, instead of four, as in the tetraploid X. laevis. Lab specimens of X. tropicalis also have less genetic variation than outbred populations of X. laevis, a...

Brain May Be Less Plastic Than Hoped

Similar studies could one day show scientists how to help th...

Two chemicals boost immune cells' ability to fight HIV without gene therapy

...infection," said Effros. "These therapies are also easier to develop than gene-therapy drugs." The research was supported by a grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a University of California Discovery Grant. Geron provided additional funding and the chemical compounds fo...

Chemical Engineer Kao Explores Antibiotic Synthesis With DNA Chips

...Mutations induced by transposons are significantly easier to identify. A technique called DNA shuffling, recently developed by the Redwood City-based company Maxygen, provides Kao with a second advantage--speed. After one round of generating mutants with transposons, only a handful of the many mutants gene...

U.N. mulls the protection of Earth's forests

...t there are even better options available that are easier to agree on and implement." Auer says the United States and a few other countries are unlikely to sign a legally-binding convention. "It's not that the United States isn't interested in being involved," Auer said. "It's that the U.S. is not convinc...

Active Vaccine Prevents Mice From Developing Prion Disease

...in normal mice, the NYU researchers say it will be easier to apply in animals in the wild, which are at risk for developing prion disease. Prion disease is contracted when an animal eats the body parts of other animals contaminated with prions. What makes these infectious particles unusual is that they are...

Life detection instrument passes key test on road to Mars

...e as elaborate. This translates into a cheaper and easier way to build instruments, but more importantly, an instrument that is smaller and uses less power. With the success of this crucial field test, Skelley and Mathies are eager to get to work on a prototype of their instrument that would fit in the all...
