Breakthrough developments in rheumatoid arthritis reported

...ymorphisms, or SNPs, to identify players that have fallen under the radar of older methods. The group has discovered another signaling molecule that seems to increase a person’s risk for rheumatoid arthritis by 30 percent. (The paper reporting the gene is in press.) In collaborations with other scienti...

Mystery of fossilized trees is solved

... fossils were found near Gilboa of trees which had fallen sideways, with their trunk, branches, twigs and cr...est ecosystems. Branches from the trees would have fallen to the floor and decayed, providing a new food chain for the bugs living below. "This was also a ...

A healthier start to a pig's life

...ontrol these rapidly-spreading infections have now fallen out of use, mainly due to the increase in resistant strains of bacteria. A radical solution has been found by using a lectin obtained from the red kidney bean plant. Lectins are proteins with the ability to bind cells together; typically red blood ...

Syphilis rate on rise in US gay, bisexual men

...e’ve been seduced by these amazing drugs and we’ve fallen behind in our prevention efforts," Ghanem said. "We have to get back on track with prevention messages. That’s the only way we will curb this outbreak." ...

Faster, low cost sequencing technologies needed to drive era of personalized medicine

...ble. In the past generation, sequencing costs have fallen 100-fold, from roughly a dollar a DNA base to a penny, but are still far out of reach for the public. Zhang's technological vision would enable scientists to sequence billions of base pairs of DNA in a single day. This is the size of an average m...

NHGRI aims to make DNA sequencing faster, more cost effective

...sequencing technologies. DNA sequencing costs have fallen more than 50-fold over the past decade, fueled in large part by tools, technologies and process improvements developed as part of the successful project to sequence the human genome. However, it still costs around $10 million to sequence 3 billion ba...

Mass vaccination unnecessary in the event of a large bioterrorist US smallpox attack

A person can become infected by prolonged, face-to-face exposure with someone who is contagious, direct contact with infected bodily fluids or a contaminated object, such as be...

Hope I die before I get old?

... unique new study suggests that Townshend may have fallen victim to a common, and mistaken, belief: That the happiest days of people's lives occur when they're young. In fact, the study finds, both young people and older people think that young people are happier than older people -- when in fact research...

Heart has enough oxygen to survive hypothermia, CPR crucial

...ctims of hypothermia, including fishermen who have fallen into the frigid Norwegian waters, and cross-country skiers marooned in bad weather. "We still do not know the pathophysiological mechanism of hypothermia, which is necessary to developing the best way to rewarm hypothermia victims," Tveita explain...

Wild bees and the flowers they pollinate are disappearing together

...s as well." In Britain, where bee diversity has fallen and hoverflies have at best held steady, there have been declines in 70% of the wildflowers that require insects for pollination. However, wind-pollinated or self-pollinating plants have held constant or increased. The pattern is slightly differ...

Strawberries by design

He added: "What sets this work apart is the concerted approach adopted by the researchers to combine different parameters that boost the efficiency by which fo...

Plants give pests sock in the gut

...ects that were feeding on the resistant plants had fallen significantly. "If the IIM is being degraded by the enzyme, pieces of it should not appear in the fecal pellets of the insect," notes the Penn State researcher. When used in conjunction with the Bt-toxin, a low dose of Mir1-CP was able to achieve a...

Predators keep the world green, ecologists find

...of those of large land masses and by 2002 this had fallen to just 25 percent. Most of the vertebrates present in regional dry forest ecosystem had disappeared from small islands, including fruit eaters and predators of vertebrates, leaving a hyperabundance of generalist herbivores such as iguanas, howler mo...

Students discover 11,000 year old remains of Irish Elk

...ds and peats. "I just scraped the surface of the fallen cliff section ?which was in a block that had recently slid down the cliff ?and uncovered an orange streak which turned out to be an antler." As the block was in danger of imminent collapse, which would have crushed the antler, Dr Davey arranged for...

Genetic defenders protect crops from fungal disease

Somerville, Stein, and colleagues at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding in Köln disabled the protective genes in Arabidopsis by introducing mutations, one at a time and in vari...

Envisat radar surveillance protects endangered prehistoric fish

...nnually. However in recent years the toothfish has fallen prey to illegal uncontrolled fishing. It is estimated that pirate vessels have been fishing up to 26 000 tonnes a year ?nearly four times the legal quota. In the last few years authorities have introduced measures to limit illegal fishing in the EE...

...orest canopy), and litterfall (vegetable material fallen from trees: leaves, twigs, fruit, and so on), the first 25 cm of mineral soil and green foliage were taken and analysed chemically, according to standard protocols. The location of parcels was carried out as a function of their distance from differen...

Tabashnik said, "Some of the other pests are not so much of a problem because we're not killing their natural enemies with insecticides." Dennehy added, "These soft toxins plus the good bugs acting ...

Study provides insight into cellular defenses against genetic mutation

... cell concludes that the stop codon has mistakenly fallen in the middle of a set of instructions. Specifically, Medical Center researchers now believe a stop codon is labeled premature when it occurs more than 55 nucleotides upstream (toward the 5-prime end) of an exon-exon junction. If these spatial re...
