Scripps research team sheds light on long-sought cold sensation gene

...certain circumstances, it can also deaden pain, as illustrated by icing an injury to relieve pain. To test this side of cold sensation, the researchers injected the mice with small amounts of a pain-causing chemical, formalin, and then exposed the affected paw area to a cold plate. Cold temperature clearly r...

Satellites shed light on global warming

... Oceanography Centre in the UK said. Cipollini illustrated the role satellite instruments have played in understanding these elusive waves. He pointed out that although they were theorised to have existed as far back as the 1930s, it was not until the advent of the satellite-borne radar altimeter that oceano...

Report calls for improved monoclonal antibodies against solid tumors

...the target. “The complexity of this problem?can be illustrated in the authors?discussion of antibody affinity. If an antibody binds too tightly to a surface antigen, the antibody will get stuck in the periphery of the tumor and be ineffective except in that location. But if an antibody binds too loosely, it may ...

Beauty and the brain

...n the late 1800s and was perhaps most dramatically illustrated by Judith Langlois' lab, at the University of Texas at Austin, in the 1990s, when people scored computer composites of 16 faces higher than any of the individual component faces (i.e. the very faces that had gone into creating the mathematically aver...

Striking the right balance between excitation and inhibition

...ensations. "An example of how the system works is illustrated by what happens when you cut your finger," Goulding explains. "Initially it hurts a lot, but the pain then eases. One of the reasons that this happens is because inhibitory interneurons in the dorsal spinal cord dampen down their excitatory counterp...

Anemone genes reveal versatile building blocks for body plans

...llion years ago--and, consequently, many genes. As illustrated by the new findings, scientists are now studying how these shared genes are used by radial and bilateral animals to learn how different body plans are determined and built at the molecular level, and how they arose during evolution. The work is rep...

All placebos not created alike

... critical component." The enhanced placebo effect illustrated in this study applied only to subjective reports from patients about their perception of pain and the severity of their condition. More objective measures of grip strength showed no difference in improvements between the two placebos. The results al...

UCLA paper examines how one disease may prevent another

... American Academy of Pediatrics, Stiehm's research illustrated 12 disease pairs, reviewed their therapeutic implications and suggested additional applications. A few of the pairings that Stiehm described include: Sickle cell disease and malaria. In 1948, British biologist J.B. Haldane proposed that malaria w...

Ernst Mayr's theory illustrated in genetic epidemiology studies

...sity in St. Louis says that Mayr's theory has been illustrated nicely in recent years in human genetic epidemiology and population biology studies. Alan R. Templeton, Ph.D., Washington University professor of biology in Arts & Sciences, said that there is an extensive documentation of genetic interaction o...

The text is designed not as a compendium of facts, but rather a textbook in the traditional sense: a book that can be used for studying rather than for looking up factual information....

Overfishing in inland waters reduces biodiversity and threatens health

...large size, especially piscivores. These types are illustrated by case studies of fish declines in Australia, in the lower Mekong River of Southeast Asia, in the Great Lakes of North America, and in the Oueme River of the Republic of Benin. Allan and his coauthors warn that overfishing of inland waters has the...

Access to existing medical treatments could save more lives than spending to improve the treatments

...d properly, precisely when they need them. Woolf illustrated the concept with an example of a theoretical disease that claims 100,000 lives a year. If a drug is available that reduces the mortality rate from that disease by 20 percent, it has the potential to save 20,000 lives each year. But if only 60 percent...

Mayan stingless bee keeping: Going, going, gone?

...Arthur James Donovan and Roubik published an amply illustrated handbook, in Spanish and Mayan, with step by step instructions for basic stingless beekeeping. The authors of this paper originally submitted their manuscript to a number of conservation journals who, in Roubik's words: "told us that there are so ma...

Professor Duncan and Dr Scott illustrated in their book, Return of the Black Death (2004, Wiley), that this idea was incorrect and the plagues of Europe (1347-1660) were in fact a continuing series of epidemics of a lethal, viral, haemorrhagic fever that used the CCR5 as an entry port into t...

Bound for destruction: Ubiquitination protects against improper Notch signaling

...ocytosis. Nedd4’s role as a suppressor of Notchwas illustrated even more plainly when the lab showed that inhibitionof Nedd4 results in the upregulation of ligand-independent activationof the Notch pathway.Nedd4’s place in the greater scheme of Notch signaling became clearerwhen the group next turned to examine ...
