Venom doc tracks down snake bioweapons

...ich belong to the superfamily Colubroidea, evolved glands for the storage and dispersal of their saliva approximately 60-80 million years ago. Since that time, various prey-immobilizing toxins have evolved from innocuous proteins that were normally produced in other body tissues. Scientists believe that sn...

Bugs, even 'bad' ones, can be educationally beneficial, new book says

...an analogue of a mammalian uterus. "Milk-secreting glands that empty into the 'uterus' feed the developing larva. Tsetse milk is white and chemically similar to human or cow's milk," Waldbauer wrote in a chapter titled "Guaranteeing descendants: The role of parental care." Waldbauer emphasizes that insects...

Study: Well-known protein helps stem cells become secretory cells

The researchers discovered that a protein called CrebA single-handedly controls the entire set of events leading to secretion in the fruit fly's salivary gland and epidermis, its skin-like outer la...

Ants, not evil spirits, create devil's gardens in the Amazon rainforest, study finds

...hat the only compound produced by the ants' poison glands is formic acid, a toxin that is common in many ant species and, in fact, got its name from formica, which is Latin for ant. "Treatment of leaves with formic acid induced leaf necrosis on all the plants we tested," the authors write. "To our knowledge...

Researchers discover how malaria parasite disperses from red blood cells

...arum spends part of its life cycle in the salivary glands of mosquitoes and is transmitted to human beings through the bite of infected mosquitoes. The parasite infects red blood cells. Called a merozoite at the stage of its life when it infects red blood cells, the parasite multiplies inside the cell, un...

Researchers find gland that tells fruit flies when to stop growing

Sea slug mixes chemical defense before firing at predators

...t Charles Derby, PhD, examined the ink and opaline glands of Aplysia sea slugs for the chemicals L-lysine, L-arginine and an enzyme protein called escapin. In previous research, Derby's team determined that escapin mediates the chemical reaction with L-lysine and L-arginine that results in the defensive sec...

In this case, AFGPs are secreted into the intestinal lumen where they protect the intestinal fluid from being frozen by ice crystal...

Links between DNA damage and breast cancer studied

Species unique to tidal marshes face threats

...e salts from large volumes of water or specialized glands that exude salt. Many are gray or black in color, which is believed to be an advantage because it matches the dark color of the soils often found in tidal marshes. Why endemic tidal marsh species seem to be largely restricted to North America--which ...

New understanding of parasite cell structures may provide treatments for serious tropical diseases

...anosome transfers from the mid-gut to the salivary glands where it enters the human bloodstream when the fly bites. "We found that putting these cells under stress similar to that initially encountered by the trypanosome inside the fly caused the parasites to cleave free GPIs," said Mensa-Wilmot, "and that...
