Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...motor neurons, says Zhang. The goal proved elusive even in simpler vertebrates such as mice, whose embryonic stem cells have been available to scientists for decades. One reason scientists have had difficulty making motor neurons, Zhang believes, may be that they are one of the earliest neural structures...

Man and mouse share genome structures

...lar patterns along equivalent chromosomal regions, even where the underlying DNA sequences are different. Bernstein and Schreiber began to develop the analytical techniques several years earlier, working with the smaller yeast genome. To investigate the much larger human genome, they collaborated with Af...

Scientists ID molecular 'switch' in liver that triggers harmful effects of saturated and trans fats

...proteins (HDL, or "good" cholesterol) and may have even stronger adverse effects than do saturated fats. The researchers report that when activated by harmful fats, PGC-1beta alters liver metabolism through a cascade of biochemical signals. The result is an upsurge in the liver's production of very low-d...

The report appears in the January 19 issue of SAGE KE , an online resource on the science of aging from the publishers of the journal Science. "Theremay be a previously undiscovered pocket of primitive stem cells in thesp...

In order toaccurately analyze a hot spring's entire microbial community, Spearneeded to collect only about as much material as a pencil eraser.Sediment samples were scoo...

Columbia research lifts major hurdle to gene therapy for cancer

The switch and the protein wereconnected to each other so that the deadly protein is only unleashedinside cance...

Poor prenatal nutrition permanently damages function of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas

...impairment was permanent. It couldn't be corrected even when the body caught up to normal weight." Because studies of mice generally are good predictors of human biology, the Joslin study has important implications. "People and their doctors need to understand that prenatal undernourishment makes a perso...

Fox Chase Cancer Center scientists identify immune-system mutation

...mice are unable to generate mature helper T cells, even though their immature T cells carry the CD4 protein," Kappes explained. "Instead, the mutation redirects them to the killer-cell pathway. "Our new study identifies this defect as a point mutation in the zinc finger transcription factor Th-POK. We sh...

Controversial drug shown to act on brain protein to cut alcohol use

They then withheld alcohol fortwo weeks, which normally leads to greatly increased drinking when whenalcohol i...

In a related paper published November29, 2004 by the Journal of Biological Chemistry (JBC), the Varki grouphas also discovered the exact cellular mechanism by which this occurs. Instudies with one...

Timing is everything: First step in protein building revealed

Plants respond similarly to signals from friends, enemies

... studied the signals between plants and nematodes, even though the nematode provides no benefit to its host. Root-knot nematodes form feeding cells ?so-called giant cells ?in the plant and later galls or knots on it. "We don't know the precise structure of Nematode factor, but it appears that the nematod...

Scientists detect probable genetic cause of some Parkinson's disease cases
