The very unexpected life and death of a leukemic cell

...mmed cell death machinery in CLL cells. This was a hint that perhaps the leukemia cells were not immortal, a hypothesis tested by Nicholas Chiorazzi and colleagues in a paper appearing online on February 10 in advance of publication in the March 1 print edition of the Journal of Clinical Investigation. Th...

Decoding the logic of olfaction

...of activation in the cortex. "This finding gives a hint that there is some logic to the way that information is being mapped onto the cortex," said Buck. "We don't know what that logic is, but it seems as if it has something to do with the molecular features of the odorant." The researchers also found, h...

...hington University School of Medicine. "It gives a hint of what medical practice will be like down the road when we can put such knowledge to practical use every day."The study consisted of 735 ACS patients from two Kansas City, Missouri hospitals.

Bacterial protein mimics host to cripple defenses

... higher organisms, but found no matches that might hint at how the protein works at the molecular level. "We had some biochemical clues to what AvrPtoB was doing, but getting the three-dimensional crystal structure was really key," Martin explained. To find that structure, Martin and Abramovitch worked ...

Whole-genome study at Johns Hopkins reveals a new gene associated with abnormal heart rhythm

...rd of all cases, sudden cardiac death is the first hint of heart disease. It is widely believed that many factors, genetic and environmental, contribute to irregular heartbeat and other conditions that may lead to sudden cardiac death. Being able to identify predisposed individuals can save their lives by...

'Banana-jawed' fossil mammal linked to rare sound-producing skill

...ar-old fossil mammal -- and they even have added a hint of sound. By painstakingly measuring hundreds of specimens of a fossil mammal called Thyrohyrax, recovered from the famous fossil beds of Egypt's Fayum Province, the researchers determined that males of this now-extinct species -- and only males -- ...

Major cancer study aims to identify protein markers for early-stage disease

...Elevated levels of prostate specific antigen (PSA) hint at the presence of prostate cancer, while elevated levels of cancer antigen 125 (CA-125) suggest possible cancer of the ovary or other organs. However, both tests have "false negatives" or "false positives," making them unreliable. If mass spectrome...

Tiny bones rewrite textbooks

... all: until now, decades of searching had shown no hint that furry, warm-blooded animals had ever trodden on New Zealand soil, despite them having thrived so widely in other lands. The fact that even one land mammal lived there, at least 16 million years ago, has put paid to the theory that New Zealand'...
