UCSD discovery may help extend life of natural pesticide

...ight glycolipid and protein receptors cooperate to engage this intoxication program? If the field can figure this out, it might allow for the engineering of toxins that can utilize either type of receptor alternatively, such that host resistance would require the mutation of both receptor types. This means ...

Chemists identify immune system mechanism for methamphetamine binges

...ew study is the first to suggest that the drug can engage the body's defense system to attack methamphetamine in such a way that makes users inclined to use more of the drug, the researchers say. Their study, which paints a clearer picture of the drug's effect on the immune system and its potential for abus...

Stem cell treatment improves mobility after spinal cord injury

...hough there is still much work to do before we can engage in human clinical tests." Acute spinal cord damage occurs during the first few weeks of the injury. In turn, the chronic period begins after a few months. It is anticipated that the stem cell treatment in humans will occur during spinal stabilizatio...

Achilles heel of the herpes virus possibly found

...ons of what the virus likely would use to bind and engage the B5 receptor. "It appears that B5 is a new class of viral receptor. Unlike other viruses so far, HSV seems to have evolved to take advantage of a broadly present cellular protein that has properties like that of known cellular fusion machinery," ...

'Shifty-eyed' Monkeys Offer Window Into Brain's Social Reflexes

...m. 'When you're teaching another person, you often engage with them in 'joint attention,' where you establish attentive contact and undergo a give and take, as you both concentrate on something,' said Platt. 'You often don't see that capability in autistic individuals.' To understand the neural functions of...

Nose odors and mouth odors: The brain distinguishes
