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

...that are present at levels of approximately 20% or greater in the circulating viral population in a patient. Thus, the current technology used in the clinic may miss many low-level resistant HIV strains which can grow rapidly under drug selection pressure and lead to therapy failure. This retrospective stud...

Weizmann Institute scientists develop a general 'control switch' for protein activity

With their greater resources, biotechnology companies will be able to create much larger sets of engineered proteins in order to find one that best meets their needs.” The method developed by the Weizmann Institute scientists is ready for immediate use, both in basi...

Children of smokers have more than 5 times higher levels of a nicotine toxin

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

The CCAAPS, funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, is a five-year study at UC examining the effects of environmental particulates on childhood r...

Mice with a migraine show signs of brain damage

...headache sufferers, echoes Nedergaard’s call for a greater emphasis on prevention. “It’s astounding just how many migraine sufferers do not see a doctor and are not on a medication to prevent a recurrence,?said Friedman, professor of Ophthalmology and Neurology. “It’s estimated that less than 20 percent o...

Machine preservation may promote more organ sharing

"By placing kidneys on a portable pump, preservation times can be safely extended to permit more time for sharing organs across the country,"...

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 ...
