Researchers examine carbon capture and storage to combat global warming

...aking the oil expand and ''thin out'' such that it flows more easily, Benson said. ''That experience gives us confidence that we know how to drill the wells, push the [carbon dioxide] in and say something about what will happen when it gets down there,'' said Orr. Currently, three industrial-scale pr...

'Short-circuit' found in ocean circulation

...w ocean circulation is working in the current that flows around Antarctica by tracing the path of helium from underwater volcanoes. The details are published in Nature this week. The team, led by Alberto Naveira Garabato of the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton (formerly based at the University of...

Cancer-killing invention also harvests stem cells

...secondary, cancerous growths. As a cancer cell flows along the implanted surface, King's device captures it and delivers an apoptosis signal, a biochemical way of telling the cancer cell to kill itself. Within two days, that cancer cell is dead. Normal cells are left totally unharmed because the devi...

...se filtration units in each human kidney. As blood flows through a network of tiny capillaries in the glomerulus, excess water, salts and toxic molecules are removed and flushed out in urine, while important blood proteins like albumin are retained in the bloodstream. If the kidney's filtering units don't ...

New way of tracking muscle damage from radiation

...st agent. "The rate at which the contrast agent flows in and out of a region, or whether it leaks out of the blood vessel, helps us understand whether the blood supply is in poor or good condition," Krasin said.

Fast test for low blood flow in dogs detects early heart trouble

...d with 1.0 meaning a perfect match. Indeed, blood flows ranged from 0.3 milliliters per gram of heart tissue per minute to 8 milliliters per gram per minute. "We think this is a natural evolution of the technology and a significant improvement in our ability to diagnose problems with blood flow," says...

Scientists find new way to manipulate DNA

...e equation they developed can be applied to design flows that break polymers into certain lengths, or to design polymers to withstand certain flows. This could have big implications for industries that rely on polymer coatings, such as shipping or oil. "When the polymers are working their best the frict...

Dittmar and his colleagues at several German research institutions analyzed the carbon output from a large mangrove forest in Brazil and suggest that the plants are one of the main sources of dissolved organic matter in the oc...

Weighting cancer drugs to make them hit tumors harder

...motherapy's stay inside tumors is brief because it flows out as rapidly as it entered. In contrast, high molecular weight chemotherapy molecules are too large to be picked up by normal blood vessels. The drugs also remain longer in the tumor because they are not readily reabsorbed into the bloodstream, no...

Blood flow in brain takes a twist, affecting views of Alzheimer's

...t scientists have assumed that the more blood that flows to a particular part of the brain, the more activity on the part of neurons, the nerve cells that send electrical signals that are widely considered to be "brain activity." The assumption that more blood flow equals more active neurons forms the basi...
