Spleen may be source of versatile stem cells

...Medical School.She adds, "This data also shows the kind of payback that can come fromstudies of lower animals like newts and sponges. Combining theknowledge of Hox11's role in those animals with what we'd found aboutislet cell regeneration in mice helped us find this previously unknownexample of normal, c...

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...lear, but the answer could be that iron sets off a kind of chemical warfare in the marine ecosystem, according to University of Maine oceanographer Mark Wells.

Dinosaur DNA? New Patent Covers Degraded DNA recovery

... Stewart remarks, "This is the first patent of its kind to be allowed by the US Patent Office" Dr. Ensley believes that one of the first applications could be in forensic science, where time, the traumatic circumstances of a crime scene or the environment has caused DNA samples to become degraded. "We ho...

Gene therapy converts dead bone graft to new, living tissue

...mals use their skeletons for both support and as a kind of "calcium bank." If calcium, which is necessary for such important functions as maintaining the brain and heart, runs low, cells called osteoclasts dig out the calcium from our bones. This is why doctors encourage post-menopausal women to take calc...

Female sex hormones play a vital role in defense against sexually transmitted diseases

...nderstand why, and our hope is that by doing these kind of mouse studies, we can understand the mechanisms." In the first study, female mice received either the hormone estradiol or progesterone, a combination of both, or nothing at all prior to exposing them to the herpes virus. Both estradiol and proge...
