Agent slows aging in mice

...iet and NDGA so far have survived in significantly greater numbers than mice on a normal diet. Scientists measured the difference at a point called median lifespan, when half the control mice had died of natural causes associated with aging. “This is the first time to my knowledge when an agent has been ...

Enzyme delivered in smaller package protects cells from radiation damage

...y temperature for 7 days at which time colonies of greater than 50 cells were counted. The MnSOD transfected cells were significantly more resistant to ionizing radiation than the non-tranfected cells. However, there was no significant difference in survival between MnSOD-minicircle and MnSOD full plasmi...

New study finds genetically engineered crops could play a role in sustainable agriculture

...ata from many individual experiments can provide a greater understanding of a complex issue. The project is enhanced by the creation of a public database, Nontarget Effects of Bt Crops, developed by NCEAS ecoinformatics expert, Jim Regetz, that will allow other scientists to conduct congruent analyses.” ...

Researchers examine carbon capture and storage to combat global warming

...or, it can be near permanent,'' Benson said. Of greater concern to the researchers are the potential risks of carbon sequestration to human health, mainly through asphyxiation and groundwater contamination. The threat of asphyxiation-or suffocation due to carbon dioxide displacing oxygen-is very low, t...

Risk of stroke doubles if diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes

...similar age, the relative risk for stroke was much greater in younger persons with diabetes than for older persons. As it has been more common to study stroke prevalence within 10 years after diagnosis, this is the first study to specifically examine stroke-related outcomes immediately after the diagnos...

454 sequencing identifies HIV drug resistance at early stage

Several models overestimate the thickness of the present-day sea ice and the models may also fail to fully capture changes in atmospheric and oceanic cir...

Early exposure to indoor fungus molecules may protect infants against future allergies

Amphibians in losing race with environmental change

...ed that the rate of plant and animal extinction is greater now than any known in the last 100,000 years, the researchers note in their report. Amphibians are of particular interest because their physiology and complex life cycle often exposes them to a wider range of environmental changes than other species ...

Why do oysters choose to live where they could be eaten?

...e captured by a feeding adult is nearly certain at greater than 90 percent. A series of experiments examining the feeding currents produced by adult oysters and how larvae actively settle on reefs helped solved the puzzle. Oyster feeding currents are actually very weak, so while they will readily eat larv...

Double the death rate from cirrhosis for 'blue collar' men

... men from lower socio-economic backgrounds were in greater danger of liver cirrhoses because of their heavy and binge drinking. Liver cirrhosis accounted for 3.3 percent of all deaths among men aged between 15 and 64 in Australia in 2002 (543) and is the 10th largest overall killer of men. Cirrhosis ...
