Newly discovered antibody may be body's natural defense against Alzheimer's

...c proteins based on their shape may have important implications for immune therapy of other neurologic disorders, the researchers explain. "We were able to confirm that the antibodies we found not only recognize oligomers of beta amyloid but also unhealthy forms of other proteins that accumulate in a wide var...

Physicist cracks women's random but always lucky choice of X chromosome

...hromosomes but the explanation may have much wider implications as at least 10% of our genes may behave in similar ways as mechanism that "chooses" between X chromosomes. Examples of this range from the immune system to our olfactory apparatus. Coming at the problem from the perspective of a physicist Dr Nicod...

ASU research shows connection between testosterone, dietary antioxidants and bird coloration

...d health. He adds that it is worth considering the implications for human nutrition and health. “If testosterone is having immunosuppressive effects in human men, perhaps they too could benefit from increased carotenoid intake, say, by eating more corn,” he said. “This study certainly opens the door for f...

Marine phytoplankton changes form to protect itself from different predators

...consumers are present.” The behavior could have implications for global climate change because Phaeocystis blooms play a key role in the carbon cycle of cold oceans, accounting for up to 85 percent of local productivity during some time periods. This complex defensive behavior also shows how environmental fac...

Human genetic 'deserts' are teeming with significant life

Neuroscientists need such gene switches to investigate the cause-and-effect relationship between gene activity, neuronal physiology, and animal be...

Antarctic icebergs -- Hotspots of ocean life

...le of removing carbon from the atmosphere may have implications for global climate models that need to be further studied,” added Smith. To understand the icebergs’ complex impacts, the multidisciplinary team of researchers carried out the most comprehensive study ever done of individual icebergs and their im...
