In mice, drug protects against diabetes and atherosclerosis

...se. While the genetic variant studies in humans indicate that a drug like the one used in the current experiments is likely to work in humans, Hotamisligil said that this remains to be proven. The next step is to perform more detailed toxicity tests in animals, and then move toward human testing. The im...

Ancient DNA traces the woolly mammoth's disappearance

...those of the other species.” Their genetic data indicate that Siberian mammoths expanded from a small base some time before sixty thousand years ago. Moreover, they found two distinct genetic groups, implying that mammoths had diverged in isolation for some time before merging back into a single population...

Brightening prospects of using fluorescent nanotubes in medical applications

..., at least so far, experiments that have been done indicate that they do not damage living cells. By comparison, quantum dots, which are a popular alternative fluorescent tagging technology, contain cadmium, which is highly toxic, and so may not be appropriate for “in vivo” applications. Nanotube fluoresc...

Salty oceans provide early warning for climate change

...orth Atlantic circulation. Models and data both indicate that these changes in ocean circulation occur over very short time-scales, usually in less than a decade or two. Ocean water can’t possibly travel this fast (it takes nearly a century for a parcel of water to move from the South Atlantic to the North...

...ife (between ages 50 to 60 years old). The results indicate that different subtypes of melanoma are associated with different risk factors "The findings suggest that melanoma subtypes have different causes. This is important for learning more about how to prevent and treat skin cancer," said Dr. Nancy Thom...

Exploring the dark matter of the genome

...genes. We identified patterns of codons that might indicate a gene splice-site or a promoter, for example. We mapped experimentally derived evidence of messenger RNAs back to the matching heterochromatin sequence. And we looked for sequences similar to ones already known from protein databases." These standar...

"The dinosaur swam with alternating movements of the two hind limbs, a pelvic paddle swimming motion," said Costeur. "It is a swimming style of amplified walking ...

Common treatment for methamphetamine overdose may damage brain cells

... The findings, derived from experiments with rats, indicate that only the combination of the medication, haloperidol, and methamphetamine causes the destructive effects, not either one alone. Senior author Bryan Yamamoto, PhD, and his team at Boston University School of Medicine suspect the damage results fro...

"Our study has shown that pistachios, eaten with a heart healthy diet, may decrease a person's CVD risk profile," says Dr. Penny Kris-Eth...

Arctic ice retreating more quickly than computer models project

...nhouse gases in the atmosphere. Whereas the models indicate that about half of the ice loss from 1979 to 2006 was due to increased greenhouse gases, and the other half due to natural variations in the climate system, the new study indicates that greenhouse gases may be playing a significantly greater role. ...

WHO data confirms low level of resistance to Tamiflu
