Introduced foxes transformed vegetation on Aleutian Islands from lush grasslands to tundra

...-rich guano around the islands. Add foxes, and the indirect effects on the whole ecosystem are as dramatic as the direct effects on the seabirds. "Introduced species are a global phenomenon, and we tend to focus on the direct effects, such as the reduction or extinction of species that are consumed by an int...

New RNA polymerase discovered in plants

...looked." While Pikaard and his collaborators have indirect evidence that Pol IV is a distinct RNA polymerase, they still have many aspects of Pol IV to unravel. "We know what happens when its gone, but not how it behaves, at this point," he said. "We don't know its template, or what kind of RNA ?long or sho...

TEL2 gene cooperates with MYC gene to provoke B-cell lymphomas

...EL1, TEL2 promotes cell multiplication, playing an indirect role in the development of B lymphoma. "TEL2 doesn't directly cause cancer," Grosveld said. "Instead, this gene promotes the development of lymphoma by enlarging the B lymphocyte population. This increases the likelihood that at least a few of the c...

Computational Method Speeds Mapping of Cell Signaling Networks

Roundup®highly lethal to amphibians, finds University of Pittsburgh researcher

...periment to see whether the Roundup® would have an indirect effect on the frogs by killing their food source, the algae. However, he found that Roundup®, although an herbicide, actually increased the amount of algae in the pond because it killed most of the frogs. "It's like killing all the cows in a field a...

Scientists discover the body's marijuana-like compounds are crucial for stress-induced pain relief

"There is no prescription or over the counter drug that allows us to manipulate the level of the brain's marijuana-like compounds," said And...

Micro-molecule plays big role in birth defects

...n diseases ranging from cancer to AIDS. "There is indirect evidence that if you remove two microRNAs from the human genome, leukemia develops," Harfe said. "We envision our mouse model may be a tool to directly test how microRNAs are involved in human cancers." ...

To understand the biochemistry behind this plant defence, biologists of the Max Planck institute studied corn plants, caterpillars of the species Spodoptera littoralis ...

Research details how a virus hijacks cell signals to cause infection

...ergelson and Coyne found that CVBs have evolved an indirect route of attack. The virus first attaches itself to more accessible cell receptors called DAF receptors that lie exposed on the upper surface of epithelial cells. After attaching itself to a DAF receptor, the virus triggers two signals that open the...
