Modeling the restless brain

... emerge naturally from much faster, chaotic neural interactions that typically last only a few milliseconds. "Our model suggests that the cortical resting state is not time-invariant, but instead contains rich and interrelated temporal structure at multiple time scales that is shaped by the underlying structu...

A new plant-bacterial symbiotic mechanism promising for crop applications

...n pass on the nitrogen they have stored up. These interactions improve crop yields of leguminous plants that are crucial for human diet (soybean, peas, ground nuts and so on…) and as animal feed (alfalfa, clover, sainfoin). In addition, cultivation of legumes living in symbiotic association with bacteria can c...

Hormone helps mice 'hibernate,' survive starvation

...sts examined potential molecular cues and cellular interactions at play during starvation and fasting. They focused on a nuclear receptor – a protein that turns genes on and off in the body – called peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha, or PPAR-alpha, which is known to control the use of fat as ene...

Herpes virus hijacks DNA repair process

...nhanced viral replication wasn't linked to orf36's interactions with other molecules, researchers turned to mice lacking the genes for ATM and H2AX, the damage response proteins activated by infection. When they infected cells from these mice with murine herpes virus, its ability to reproduce was again curtailed....

Revealed -- Mosquito genes that could be controlling the spread of killer viruses

...tanding the genetics behind pathogen/immune system interactions in disease vector mosquitoes may help us understand why, for example, some types of mosquitoes can transmit a particular human pathogen while others cannot. If those that cannot have evolved an effective immune system that fights off the pathogen, we...

All the bats quickly learned to avoid the noxious moths first offered to them, associating the warning sounds with b...

Protein enables discovery of quantum effect in photosynthesis

The collaboration is a good illustration of interdisciplinary science. The Washington University group's expertise is in photosynthesis, especially antenna systems, and the We...

Scientists discover rare 'gene-for-gene' interaction that helps bacteria kill their host

...m attack. Although such so-called gene-for-gene interactions are thought to be common in diseases, very few examples of a single gene in a pathogen targeting a single gene in an animal or human host have been identified so far. Photorhabdus is a family of bacteria that in relatively small concentrations can...

Indeed the guiding principle of the new model is natural selection. It simulates the physical and chemical characteristics of the oceans, but adds to the virtu...

In young mice, gregariousness seems to reside in the genes

... Wisconsin-Madison have found evidence that social interactions among young mice result from basic motivations to be with one another. What's more, the researchers say, the extent of a young mouse's gregariousness is influenced by its genetic background. The work, reported today (April 3, 2007) in the journal ...
