Cells re-energize to come back from the brink of death

... to supply the cell with energy, but also hold the keys to the cells’ life and death. The process by which the membranes develop holes—mitochondrial outer membrane permeability (MOMP)—is often the “point of no return” for self-destruction, said Douglas Green, Ph.D., chair of the St. Jude Immunology ...

Treating HIV in war zones -- Public health emergencies need rapid advice from WHO

...s. "Our experience has shown us that one of the keys to successful provision of ART in conflict settings is preparation for disruption," say the authors. Some of the crucial contingency measures include: Providing patients with extra emergency drug supplies that can be taken in case of program ...

Technique monitors thousands of molecules simultaneously

...k. The nature and shape of molecules that serve as keys tells about the binding requirements of the receptor. Traditionally, probing a receptor this way has been done by making a library of molecules, treating it with the receptor, washing away any excess receptor that has not found a key, and then treati...

Corals that can fight global warming may one day help fragile reefs

...to fight them. But these complications can also be keys to coral reef survival. "A first line of defense is provided by surface microorganisms ?[that] produce antibiotics that can help corals fight pathogenic bacteria," reported Harvell. However, not all corals are able to produce such defenses under ...

...xperiment, and three times afterward. "One of the keys in this kind of experiment is to set the baseline and control environment carefully," Berk said. "In this case, the control group basically sits in a 'neutral' room waiting to have their blood drawn, and on the tables there is a wide variety of magaz...

Thin tough skin, slow-growing gills protect larval Antarctic fish

...mished skin and slow developing gills appear to be keys to survival for newly hatched Antarctic notothenioids, a group of fish whose adults thrive in icy waters because of antifreeze proteins (AFPs) in their blood. Such adaptations are important, researchers at the University of Illinois atUrbana-Champai...

Effective, safe anthrax vaccine can be grown in tobacco plants
