For them, sleep ranks as one of the most highly regarded indexes of healthy development, and plays a critical role in consolidating memory and facilitating learning, regulating metabolism and appetite, promoting good moods and sustaining both cardiovascular health and a vigorous immune function. ...

Identified main genetic variants involved in response to HIV

...Ps. Hence, a good knowledge of these variations is highly valuable for the determination of the progression of AIDS. During the present study, obtained genetic data was compared to blood virus load in patients during the first two years after the infection, and also to the rhythm of immune degradation as ...

In mice, drug protects against diabetes and atherosclerosis

... one experiment, mice genetically engineered to be highly susceptible to atherosclerosis were fed high-fat diets and assigned to receive the drug or an inert substance. One set of mice was put on a high-fat "western" diet at five weeks of age; half received the inhibitor drug. A second group of animals ate ...

Progress toward an antitumor vaccine

...ructures that make suitable anchors are themselves highly immunogenic, which can suppress the immune response against the true target, the glycoprotein.” This team has now found a good anchoring technique: Their anchor is a thioether (two carbon atoms coupled together through a sulfur atom). To this end,...

Exploring the dark matter of the genome

Not so long ago, the difficult-to-sequence, highly repetitive, gene-poor DNA found in regions of chromosomes known as heterochromatin was called "junk." Like dark matter in the universe, the true nature of heterochromatin was unknown. Now members of the Drosophila Heterochromatin Genome Project (DH...

Research finds that circadian rhythms dominate all life functions

... genes in different organs is a very important and highly specific part of gene function. In addition, genes can oscillate with different amplitude -- the swing between the highest and the lowest point. Genes are expressed at very different levels, but most of them have the same relative change throughou...

"It is highly critical that we prevent the introduction of the potato wart pathogen to production areas, and, where it is already introduced, to limit its spread," he said. "While regulatory action is important in potato wart management, it is essential that r...

Reconstructing the biology of extinct species: A new approach

More acrobatic species consistently have semicircular canals with a larger radius of curvature than do slower-mo...

Turn-ons and turn-offs for neurons

...ch is an important step in both the development of highly reliable gene-switches for experimental neuroscience and in our understanding of mechanisms governing gene regulation in the brain. Indeed, the epigenetic mechanisms in charge of switching genes “on” or “off” play an essential role when our brain lea...
