Plant genes identified that can form basis for crops better adapted to environmental conditions
...dapts itself to changes in the soil − a very heterogeneous
and changeable environment. From the agricultural point of view, the branching of the root is essential because roots are responsible for helping plants adapt to adverse environmental conditions. A better understanding of capillary root formation wil...
Forgotten by evolution?
...ers thus suspect that mesenchymal stem cells are a heterogeneous
group of various, different cells, that have similar characteristics. As was hoped, the scientists, using certain substances, were able to bring the stem cell line to express proteins characteristic of muscle cells. Interestingly, when a particular ...
'Prosthetic' retinal cells let blind mice see light
...agues. "However, retinal degenerative diseases are heterogeneous
as to the time course of the degeneration, survival cell types, and, possibly, their functional state. Therefore, further studies are required to evaluate what types of retinal degenerative diseases and/or what disease stages are suitable for this po...
Breast stem cells have features similar to 'basal' tumors
...le disease. Scientists now view breast cancer as a heterogeneous
disease, made up of various subtypes. This observation has led to speculation that breast tumours are derived from different cell types that could include the breast stem cell or its descendents that have suffered genetic accidents. This possibilit...
Triple threat polymer captures and releases
...nking then solidifies the mixture, thus creating a heterogeneous
coating that, upon close examination, reveals treacherous nanometer-sized terrain composed of mountains and valleys, ranging from hard to soft, hydrophilic to hydrophobic. The complex surface that is created makes it difficult for marine organisms to...
Mapping the mouse genome
...sed two groups of mice: one consisting of outbred, heterogeneous
stock (HS) and the other of recombinant inbred lines (RI). Using the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) data that resulted from physical mapping of the mouse genome, the authors were able to track the patterns of inheritance of >10,000 SNPs in ...
