The research, published in the March issue of Immunity, suggests that the process for disposal of dying neutrophils is actively linked to neutrophil production. A clear und...

Bird Brains Show How Trial and Error May Contribute to Learning

...otor skills, such as tennis. The process relies on feedback about what works and what doesn't, also called experience-dependent or performance-based learning. "That all requires paying attention to how we're doing, experimenting with different things, and gradually getting better," said senior author Michael...

Opposing fat metabolism pathways triggered by a single gene

...spects of fat metabolism, which interact to form a feedback system controlling the consumption and composition of fats in the nematode. Using RNAi to suppress gene expression, the researchers discovered that when nhr-49 was absent, the lifespan of the nematode was reduced by more than 50%, and the animal dis...

Insight into natural cholesterol control suggests novel cholesterol-lowering therapy

...ediate compound in the synthetic pathway--mediates feedback control over the rate of cholesterol production by stimulating the degradation of cholesterol-building reductase. The availability of reductase, which functions early in the synthetic process, largely determines the rate of cellular cholesterol produ...

Brain-mapping technique aids understanding of sleep, wakefulness

... "This creates a self-reinforcing loop, a positive feedback system that's very important to consolidating wakefulness." Dr. Yanagisawa said the trigger that causes the sleep "seesaw" to tip from one side to the other and maintain a proper balance between time spent awake and time spent asleep is still a big ...

Remote control flies? Fly behavior controlled by laser light

...neural circuit activated by the remote control has feedback loops that keep the circuit. "In the case of the flight circuits," he says, "it is like pushing a swing. One initial kick and it keeps swinging back and forth for a while." ### The study was supported by grants from the National Institutes of Healt...

Random gene expression may drive HIV into hiding

...hen the HIV genome is transcribed and the positive feedback loop kicks in. If these Tat modifications don't happen, then HIV ceases to be expressed, and the cell can then possibly enter a latent state. The significance of fluctuations in expression are dependent on HIV being expressed at a low level in the c...

Since the early 1960s, scientists have identified "hotspots" of slowly increasing average summer temperatures in the Arctic, from 0.1...

Once given 'no respect,' cells' tiny RNAS take driver's seat

"Because both Myc and E2F1 increase the expression of genes that increase cell growth, the pair could be quite dangerous if they...

Computer modeling reveals hidden conversations within cells

...one of the chemicals, the proteins create positive feedback that lengthens the amount of time they are active. When exposed to the other chemical, they initiate negative feedback, which shuts them down rapidly. "The prevailing view has been that proteins are either on or off like a light switch, but that di...
