Influenza vaccine uses insect cells to speed development

...o 2 months." Today's flu vaccines are prepared in fertilized chicken eggs. The eggshell is punctured, and the influenza virus is injected into the fluid surrounding the embryo. The egg is then resealed, the embryo becomes infected, and the resulting virus is then harvested, purified and used to produce the vac...

Oceans more vulnerable to agricultural runoff than previously thought, study finds

..." Matson said. "The entire valley is irrigated and fertilized in very short windows of time during a six-month cycle. The excess water from irrigation runs off through streams and channels into the estuaries and then out to sea." Matson and her colleagues wondered if each fertilization and irrigation event wou...

Man-made wetland's effectiveness similar to natural marsh

... acted as an effective sink, even when runoff from fertilized fields was especially high," Mitsch said. "Of course, that could change as time goes on, however." Most of the water entering the wetland came as runoff from farm fields, and nitrate and phosphorus levels all peaked after fertilizer application in t...

Stem cells in bone marrow replenish mouse ovaries

...ollowing bone marrow transplants can mature and be fertilized to give rise to viable mouse pups, the findings provide an important first step toward investigating such potential for restoring fertility. In addition, the findings open the door for future studies examining whether restoration of ovaries could pos...

Clawed frog helps Fanconi anemia research make leaps

...ne in mammalian cells. Since a Xenopus egg isn't fertilized until after it is laid outside the body of the female frog, it's in a relative state of suspension until it is fertilized. During this time, when the cell cycle is arrested, scientists can use chemicals and a centrifuge machine to keep its DNA from r...

The researchers then screened the offspring to find those that had incorporated miR155 into their genomes and followed them to see what effect miR155 might have. Within three weeks, the transgenic mice developed greatl...
