A gene's first 'kiss' sets off that affair known as puberty

...It takes two to tango," whereby a signal literally gets turned on by a molecule that is produced by a gene aptly named KiSS-1. The couple ?a biochemical equivalent to Adam and Eve ?makes its sudden appearance in a region of the brain called the hypothalamus just as puberty begins, according to a study pu...

Newly-discovered class of genes determines ?and restricts ?stem cell fate

...prevents them from differentiating completely. "It gets the show going, but at the same time, prevents the final act," says Epstein. "I call this dual function a "biological capacitor," because Pax3 tells the cell: Get ready to go, but at the same time won't let it proceed." Pangenes Express Behavioral Q...

Poplar trees redirect resources in response to simulated attack

...e scientists have not yet determined if more sugar gets stored in the plants' roots, a key component of the theory. "Because the radiotracer has such a short half-life (20.4 minutes), we can see that more is going to the roots, but not the chemical form it takes there," Ferrieri said. "We will have to do ...

Scientists rid stem cell culture of key animal cells

"It is important that the culture of human ES cells be simplified so that the average scientist can use them...

South America's vast pantanal wetland may become next everglades, UNU experts warn

...on. Without cattle to eat or step on the grass, it gets dry and more easily burns, leading to more frequent fires which destroy flood-adapted trees, in which aquatic birds nest, while killing swamp deer and other animals. (The Pantanal's other fauna includes giant anteaters, armadillos, capybara, the Braz...

Potential treatments for neurofibromatosis

...m lack of blood vessel support. Neurofibromatosis gets its name from neurofibromas, the disfiguring and often painful tumors that grow along nerve coverings and form on or under the skin. In most patients, the tumors begin to appear in adolescence or adulthood. A patient may develop hundreds of neurofibr...

Computational Method Speeds Mapping of Cell Signaling Networks

...ntists have been studying how external information gets transmitted from outside of cells to the control centers inside them that trigger particular responses. But cell signaling networks are so complex that mapping them has been a slow, arduous process. Now, a research team from Stanford, MIT and Harvar...

Researchers make gains in understanding antibiotic resistance

Harmful chemicals may reprogram gene response to estrogen

According to Walker, the increase in frequency and size of the uterine tumors is due to DES' ability to influence estrogen, a female hormone that is involved in promoting the growth of tumors by regulating the activity of ke...

Silence the gene, save the cell: RNA interference as promising therapy for ALS

...ic blueprint isn't delivered and the protein never gets made. "Gene silencing is an example of using "molecular scissors" at its most advanced level," Raoul explains. Raoul and colleagues used RNA interference to reduce levels of mutant SOD1 protein in the spinal cords of transgenic ALS mice (mice bred ...

NASA study finds snow melt causes large ocean plant blooms

An increase in phytoplankton could therefore cause oxygen deficiencies in the Arabian Sea to spread, leading to fish mortality. Oxygen-depleted waters also provide the perfect environment for the growth of a specialized grou...

Some Brain Cells 'Change Channels' To Fine-tune The Message

...the cells' AMPA receptors, and so too much calcium gets inside. If these threatened nerve cells can swap their calcium-allowing channels for the kind that keeps calcium out, it might be possible to harness that switch to prevent the cells from dying. "But that's a big 'if' at this point," says Huganir. ...
