Breakthrough developments in rheumatoid arthritis reported

... wayward T-cell response. The group has since gone on to use modern genetic methods to search for single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs, to identify players that have fallen under the radar of older methods. The group has discovered another signaling molecule that seems to increase a person’s risk...

Massive herds of animals found to still exist in Southern Sudan

...land, in Southern National Park. “This species has gone extinct over much of its former range, so it is very good news that what we believe is a viable population has survived in Southern National Park,” said Elkan. Many non-migratory wildlife species on the east side of the Nile were also significantl...

Lessons from the orangutans: Upright walking may have begun in the trees

...don't need to explain how our ancestors could have gone from being quadrupedal to being bipedal," Thorpe said. Observations of orangutan movement should be useful for conservation efforts, according to Thorpe. These animals are seriously endangered, primarily due to habitat destruction. "If you can...

How trees manage water in arid environments

...n floor and ignore it, in a few minutes it will be gone -- melted and then evaporated. In Indiana, if you drop a piece of ice on the floor and ignore it, the water will just stay there until it's wiped up. In Arizona, she said, if you need a particular garment on short notice and it's in the laundry, y...

Renegade RNA -- Clues to cancer and normal growth

...enetic code apparently goes where no bit of it has gone before, and it gets there under its own internal code. A report on the renegade ribonucleic acid, and the code that directs its movement, will be published Jan. 5 in Science. MicroRNAs, already implicated in cancer and normal development, latch o...

Scientists clone mice from adult skin stem cells

... so much promise, stem cells' potential has so far gone largely untapped. But new research from Rockefeller University and Howard Hughes Medical Institute scientists now shows that adult stem cells taken from skin can be used to clone mice using a procedure called nuclear transfer. The findings are report...

Largest genomic search finds genes that may contribute to autism

...from gene to brain to behavior in a way we haven't gone before," she said. "This is a pretty big step and is a precedent showing that autism will require this kind of collaboration to make progress. It is doubtful that any single laboratory could have come up with this kind of finding. This is just the...

Speeding 'fingertip' discovery -- 20 years of protein info in 1 place

...n our cells?protein factories, and phosphorylation gone awry has been implicated in several diseases. The ability to study more than one phosphorlyation at a time will help us understand some of these diseases - including cancers - sooner. “What we have here is about 20 years?worth of lots of work in ...

A revolution in the monitoring of unborn babies

...l Barratt and Jean Francois Pieri, the company has gone on to develop the monitor even further. This highly sensitive device, which is able to detect 0.00000001 volts, has now been reduced to the size of a mobile phone. It can compute real time fetal readings and the resulting data can be transmitted ...

The findings, which potentially bolster future efforts to protect and rehabilitate coral reefs, are reported by a group including Mary Alice Coffroth of ...

Teenager moves video icons just by imagination

Batfish to the rescue!

...e amount of weed. In eight weeks it was completely gone and the coral was free to grow unhindered," Prof. Bellwood explains. The turnaround was due mainly to one species of batfish, Platax pinnatus, which is comparatively rare on the GBR and was thought to feed only on invertebrates. The event surpr...

Cell death following blood 'reflow' injury tracked to natural toxin

...ells made it. After 15 minutes, PAR-polymer hadn't gone anywhere. But after 30 to 60 minutes, the researchers discovered that much of it traveled right to areas where the switch normally resides. The fate of the cell is irreversible once PAR-polymer sets off the trigger, says Valina Dawson, Ph.D., profe...

Other work has since demonstrated that humans have similar preferences for prototypes in a wide variety of other categories, including dogs, birds, fish, cars and even watches. ...

Gut reaction: Researchers define the colon's genome

The researchers created DNA libraries based on the samples, generating a total of 65,059 and 74,462 sequence reads, respectively, from the two subjects. They found evidence for s...
