Anthrax paralyzes immune cells with lethal toxin, UF research shows

...in works like a pair of scissors, snipping off the ends of a key protein and preventing the transmission of messages within the cell. As a result, immune cells never receive the green light to assemble the actin motor, Southwick's findings demonstrate. "Together, these studies provide important clues a...

Baumann Lab defines proteins that distinguish chromosome ends from DNA double-strand breaks

Magnetic computer sensors may help study biomolecules

...gnetic field is created that is strongest near the ends of the magnetic stack below the membrane—a field strong enough to trap nanoscale magnetic particles. The NIST experiments demonstrated that the spin valves not only can trap magnetic particles, but also can be used as the pivot point for rotating ...

Palau's coral reefs show differential habitat recovery following the 1998 bleaching event

... "Clearly, action is required at both ends of the political spectrum ?both globally to reduce greenhouse emissions, but also locally to enhance reef resilience," says van Woesik. Van Woesik’s research appears in the April 2007 issue Coral Reefs, the journal of the Internationa...

Thymus transplants gives hope to babies with fatal immune disease

...ese babies have no thymus at all, a situation that ends in death, usually by infection. These are the patients who are candidates for thymus transplantation. "We want people to know that when the diagnosis of complete DiGeorge anomaly is made, it is no longer a death sentence," said pediatric immunolog...

Woven scaffolds could improve cartilage repair

...lage is a type of connective tissue that lines the ends of bones, providing cushioning and a smooth surface for their movement within the joint. Damage to cartilage is difficult to treat, the researchers said, because the tissue lacks a supply of blood, nerve and lymph and has limited capacity for repair....

Renegade RNA -- Clues to cancer and normal growth

...iR-29b microRNA were noticeably different from the ends of other microRNAs. Suspicious that the six-block end might have something to do with miR-29b's location, the researchers chopped them off and stuck them on the end of another microRNA. When put into cells, the new microRNA behaved just like miR-2...
