Brightening prospects of using fluorescent nanotubes in medical applications

...researchers routinely mix it with special soap and give it a dose of ultrasound to break apart clumps of nanotubes and force them to dissolve. The result is a dark liquid that is routinely put into an ultracentrifuge that subjects them to forces a few thousand times that of gravity. Centrifuging separates...

Researchers examine carbon capture and storage to combat global warming

Physicist cracks women's random but always lucky choice of X chromosome

... Dr Nicodemi believes the randomness actually does give an evolutionary advantage. The mechanism means equal numbers of both the maternal and paternal X chromosome are preserved in the gene pool and the resultant population thus has more chance of surviving any biological threat targeted at a single versi...

This study will give the Missouri Department of Conservation a better understanding of the population. “This study is important to us because we need to have a better idea about the nature of the bear population in Missouri,” Hamilton said. “We get lots of questions...

Gene therapy study shows safety and statistically significant improvement in Parkinson's disease

Neither approach alone would give complete protection. “In mice, the vaccine not only fought the disease, but prevented the infection from being established in the first place,” Morello said. Researchers at UCSD hope to begin pre-clinical work on development of a human vaccin...

Skimmed milk -- Straight from the cow

"His elegant idea was to give patients chemicals they already make in small amounts in large doses to make up for the missing urea cycle enzyme they inherited," says Ada Hamosh, M.D., M.P.H, clinical director of the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine. "Sodium phenylac...

'Insulator' helps silence genes in dormant herpes virus

The studies also have implications for treating and manipulating other types of viruses, Zhou says. "This study provides one of first examples of how viral chromat...

Amphibians in losing race with environmental change

... The systems developed over millions of years to give amphibians survival advantages have now turned against them, scientists say. Examples include: Many amphibians lay their eggs in shallow, open water in direct sunlight to provide a more oxygenated environment, increase growth rate of larvae and ...

Keeping the immune system from starting a 'food fight'

Newly born neurons infected with virus were marked by a fluorescent dye enabling the researchers to follow their fate over time as they tried to get accepted into the existing circuitry. With the help of a whole arsenal of hig...
