Research identifies protein that signals flowering in squash plants

...tances through the phloem, but rather, it strongly influences the production of another substance (i.e. florigen) that does. Recent work in a number of laboratories has focused on a role for FT protein and/or FT mRNA as the florigenic signal, and evidence is building that the FT protein is responsible, at least...

Dirty snow may warm Arctic as much as greenhouse gases

...nt overall climate changing mechanism. Other human influences on Arctic climate change are particles in the atmosphere, including soot; clouds; and land use. Humans create the majority of airborne soot through industry and fuel combustion, while forest and open-field fires account for the rest. Because of hu...

In young mice, gregariousness seems to reside in the genes

...and Panksepp, because it suggests that the genetic influences on juvenile social behavior may be quite distinct from genetic factors that affect adult social behavior, a finding the researchers suggest has great importance for understanding social evolution, as well as developing more realistic animal models of...

Out-of-body experiences may be caused by arousal system disturbances in brain

...ide it." Because the arousal system controls or influences sleep-wake states, alertness and attention, Nelson and the research team questioned whether people with near death experiences may already have an arousal system predisposed to allowing intrusion of REM sleep elements during the transition between wa...

Scientists find new genes for Crohn's disease

...ability to respond effectively to harmful microbes influences his or her susceptibility to the disease. "We propose that genetic variation in the ATG16L1 gene leads to alterations in how the body uses autophagy and therefore may result in increased persistence of [toxic] cellular and bacterial components. Th...

The combined strategy has already shown great promise in studies using animal models and human cells in culture, according to the researchers. The phase I tria...

FSU researchers determine a critical factor in workings of proteins

Mutations are one factor that can disrupt quick association between proteins and lead to disease, he said. "For exam...

Scientists find new genetic clue to cause of Alzheimer's disease

...in. The researchers began their search for genetic influences amid a group of proteins that transport APP within cells, looking for small changes, or "misspellings," in seven genes involved in moving APP within cells. To start, the scientists combed two large data sets of genetic information from families in...

"We wanted to understand how MITF regulates target genes, and specifically where in promoter regions of those genes does MITF bind," Fisher said. "In the process of this work, we asked whether MITF is binding between...

Researchers uncover protection mechanism of radiation-resistant bacterium

The team showed that the most resistant bacterial species contained approximately 300 times more manganese and three times less iron than the most sensitive species. In the new study, which examined the fun...

UCLA/Toronto researchers unlock key to memory storage in brain

...neurons. "We discovered that the amount of CREB influences whether or not the brain stores a memory," said Silva. "If a cell is low in CREB, it is less likely to keep a memory. If the cell is high in CREB, it is more likely to store the memory." Human implications of the new research could prove profoun...

Re-analysis of cigarettes confirms tobacco companies increased addictive nicotine 11 percent
