Antibody therapy prevents type 1 diabetes in mice

...eart disease and nerve damage. Previously known as juvenile diabetes, type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed at a very early age, but in some cases it can be diagnosed in adulthood. In this study, the Pitt researchers treated non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice with an antibody -- a type of protein produced by the ...

New evidence of 'human' culture among primates

US conservation efforts bring more marine turtles to UK

...to British waters. Scientists do not know why some juvenile turtles make the journey to Northern Europe, but believe they may simply be driven by the North Atlantic current system. The eggs of Kemp’s ridley turtles were harvested in huge numbers and the species reached near-extinction before protective mea...

How did bilaterally symmetric flowers evolve from radially symmetric ones?

"This study reveals that natural selection can play a key role in the evolution of flower bilateral symmetry," says Camacho. "Our data also suggest that it is possible to understand the evolution...

A buffet for early human relatives

...ta are produced under the gums during the animal's juvenile years, when teeth are growing. Each laser sampling vaporized enamel that formed during several months and thus represented what Paranthropus ate during that period. By taking several samples off the length of each tooth, the researchers reconstru...

Some butterflies travel farther, reproduce faster

...tches had more total protein vitellogenin juvenile hormone Juvenile hormone appears to be a key. It plays an important role in regulating egg and larval development and also regulates reproduction, particularly egg maturation, in adults, Fescemyer said. Vitellogenin is the protein precursor to egg ...

Other studies have already shown that a condition similar to muscular dystrophy can be experimentally induced in zebrafish. One of the ne...

Ocean temperature predicts spread of marine species

...y won't travel as far and may not make it to their juvenile habitat," O'Connor said. The researchers suspect temperature plays an important role in larval dispersal because metabolic processes in larvae are sensitive to temperature and similar among species. Consequently, larvae in cold waters develop more...

Trotting with emus to walk with dinosaurs

...al flat, perhaps in family groups, since there are juvenile and adult tracks. If so, that could infer some sort of parental care, he said. At very least the tracks seem to support the idea that the dinosaurs were social animals, just like modern birds. Breithaupt remains cautious about over-interpreting t...
