Dopamine used to prompt nerve tissue to regrow

...erve degeneration, allowing the nerve to grow in a hostile environment post injury. When ready for clinical use, the polymer would be implanted at the damaged site to promote nerve regeneration. As the nerve tissue reforms, the polymer degrades. Wang's team found that dopamine's structure, which conta...

Interfering RNA silences genes in 'slippery' immune cells

...often uses RNAi as a defense against the action of hostile viruses. Over the past few years, biomedical researchers have been investigating how they might eventually harness RNAi in new medicines. Another line of research uses RNAi as a research tool, investigating the functions of specific genes by studyin...

New crop of technology reveals plant health

Potentially, these are situations where our system could prove very useful." The sensors and transmitters are two key elements of the system, but its heart is the management software, ...

Ancient fossil DNA found preserved in crystal

...ged niche in fossil bone," protecting the DNA from hostile environments and leaving it relatively undamaged over time. The team's findings suggest that the DNA in these aggregates should be preferred, whenever possible, over DNA from untreated bone. This method holds much promise for the future analysis of ...

Researchers use dirt to stay one step ahead of antibiotic resistance

... that innature, bugs in the soil survive in a very hostile environment. They dothis by developing resistance to the antibiotics produced by other soilbacteria. Understanding this process opens up a new avenue for findingnew therapies to prevent and treat antibiotic resistance in a clinicalsetting. ...

Animal models show that anabolic steroids flip the adolescent brain's switch for aggression

...nges in the brain. When the drugged hamsters were hostile hosts, a part of their brains called the anterior hypothalamus pumped out more of a neurotransmitter called vasopressin.
