Vitamin A's paradoxical role in influencing symmetry during embryonic development revealed

... retinoic acid makes sure that some of those cells ignore the left-right instructions and progress symmetrically. Belmonte compares the node to a doorway. "Before embryonic stem cells enter the node, they don't have an orientation. Nor are they differentiated into specialized tissues -- such as heart or br...

Discovery suggests why stem cells run through stop signs

The researchers found that tiny bits of genetic material called microRNAs are necessary for stem cell division to take place, suggesting that microRNAs shut off the signa...

Modification of program enables prediction of gene transcription

...nt gene finding systems ?except for N-SCAN ?either ignore the UTR splice sites or incorrectly incorporate them into some protein-coding segment, making gene prediction a none-too-sure industry.

Traditional models underestimate extinction rates

Why nerve cells work faster than the theory allows

...ty of the threshold potentials allows the cells to ignore slowly varying stimuli. The cells continuously increase their threshold so that in many cases no impulse is initiated at all. The fast activation of action potentials, on the other hand, helps the cells to transmit fast changing signals, even with hi...

Losing sleep undoes the rejuvenating effects new learning has on the brain

This suggests that learning to ignore stimuli and rapid attention switching are competing processes, with healthy individuals ignoring familiar stimuli as their primary strategy. It would be interesting to assess whether sleep restriction causes people to lose the ability to screen out e...
