Gene Therapy For Parkinson's Disease Moves Forward In Animals

...at instead of taking pills that create detrimental fluctuations of L-dopa levels, a continuous, therapeutic dose would be better for you. As for efforts to reverse impaired movements in rats, scientists used 33 animals with severe dopamine depletion and transferred a gene to provide a source of L-dopa production...

The very unexpected life and death of a leukemic cell

...y may vary over time and this may be the result of fluctuations in birth and/or death rates of the CLL cells. This challenges the dogma that CLL is a purely accumulative disorder where leukemic cells accumulate because they cannot die. Clearly CLL is a disease in which there is a dynamic interplay between rates ...

Millennium Ecosystem Assessment: Many of 2 billion dryland dwellers at risk as land degrades

...ivity can increase their vulnerability to seasonal fluctuations and droughts." "Population growth, inappropriate policies, and some aspects of globalization are the main drivers that lead to unsustainable pressure on dryland ecosystems," he says.

Space matters: Estimating species diversity in the fossil record

...ect. These results, they argue, suggest that many fluctuations in diversity seen in fossil analyses actually arise from the species-area effect and are not actually the result of true changes in the distribution of species. Given the lack of uniform geographic sampling in paleontological data, the impact of this...

York scientists warn of dramatic impact of climate change on Africa

...rtment studied the likely impact of future climate fluctuations on the continent by modelling the responses of more than 5000 plant species to predicted climate changes. Dr Jon Lovett, who led the research, said: "The results were extraordinary ?plants migrate out of the Congo rainforests and there is a massive ...

New law for resolution allows unprecedented sharpness in fluorescence microscopy

...tal implications for methods that use fluorescence fluctuations to study the reaction kinetics of molecules in solutions. The smaller the focal volumes, the more effective and sensitive are these methods. Fluorescence fluctuation methods were also limited by diffraction as a result. Therefore, in a fourth study [...

Amphetamines reverse Parkinson's disease symptoms in mice

...herapy wanes with time, and patients often develop fluctuations in motor performance and other adverse reactions. In the current study, the researchers treated mice unable to recycle dopamine with a drug that also prevented them from manufacturing the brain messenger. The brains of the mice therefore lack detect...

Ancient anthropoid origins discovered in Africa

...in magnetic fields in the sediments due to ancient fluctuations in the earth's magnetic fields. According to Simons, other anthropoids exist at BQ-2 and will soon be described, The latest fossils of the new species consist of tiny teeth and jaws, whose shapes yield critical clues about the species whose mouths t...

Team led by Carnegie Mellon University scientist finds first evidence of a living memory trace

...?the memory trace ?from what appeared to be random fluctuations of neural activity. "The trace is like a fingerprint that disappears over time. It's strongest after the honeybee's initial exposure to an odor, but you can still detect its signature features minutes afterwards," said Galán. A future question tha...

Phenotype is influenced by nature, nurture and noise

...l biologists are proving otherwise. The fine-grain fluctuations we see in the genetic regulation within single cells may lead to new insights about variability at the level of a fly, cat, or human." Changes in a cell's phenotype may be triggered by environmental factors, by programmed genetic instructions, or mo...

Alaska seal pup diet may hold key to decline of population

...o far have been surprising: growth rates, seasonal fluctuations in body mass, and percent body fat have been generally independent of the seal's diet. Instead, the starting weight has been the critical predictor of whether the seal would add body mass and body fat, Polasek explained. Seals weighing less than 26 ...

Atmospheric ozone recovering in mid-latitudes, report shows

...rs had to account for long- and short-term natural fluctuations in ozone concentration, Cunnold noted. One such fluctuation is an 11-year solar cycle, and another is a two-year oscillation that occurs in the tropics, but affects ozone in other latitudes because of atmospheric transport. Despite the natural fluctu...
