Understanding why C. difficile causes disease -- it's hungry

... and a third gene codes for a protein that makes a hole in the organism’s cell envelope to let the toxins out. The last two genes are of greatest interest to Sonenshein and his colleague, Bruno Dupuy from the Institut Pasteur. One codes for a protein, known as R, that is necessary for the expression of t...

Neural stem cells lend the brain a surprising capacity for self-repair

...e mice would not live long, but by four weeks, the hole was largely repaired and the animals survived. "It was a big surprise. It was not known that the brain has this kind of ability to repair itself." Jan and his colleagues first discovered Numb in the fruit fly Drosophila more than 10 years ago. T...

Copying nature could save us energy, study shows
