DDT-resistant insects have additional genetic advantage that helps resistance spread

...ibiotic resistance may potentially confer the same kind of genetic advantage to 'superbug' bacteria, and measures such as preventing certain antibiotics from being prescribed may not halt the spread of antibiotic resistance in bacteria. "We found that DDT resistance in fruit flies not only carries no cos...

Immune system has evolved to prevent autoimmune disease

...o the question becomes, 'Why didn't we evolve that kind of adaptive response?'" Deem said. Deem's analysis falls within a branch of physics called statistical mechanics, which uses a system's physical behavior at the molecular or atomic scale to build up a picture of the behavior at a larger level. In th...

Discarded placentas deliver researchers promising cells similar to embryonic stem cells

...ls their unique capability for developing into any kind of specialized cell, the researchers report. And according to the results of their studies, these so-called amniotic epithelial cells could in fact be directed to form liver, pancreas, heart and nerve cells under the right laboratory conditions. "If...

Researchers discover key to human embryonic stem-cell potential

...uripotent state indefinitely, preserving them as a kind of cellular blank slate. The therapeutic goal then is to take these blank slates and coax them into, say, liver or brain tissue. But in order to guide them out of pluripotency with efficiency, we need to know what keeps them there to begin with. Re...

Scientists and engineers apply nature's design to human problems

...en said. "Georgia Tech is a great place to do this kind of research. It provides engineers who want to apply their expertise with biologists a new way to design solutions to problems." After this experience, the idea for the center developed further with the help of a biological metaphor ?that of an "inv...

Research casts doubt on circulating stem cells

...t was the idea that the body had at its disposal a kind of "mobile task force" of repair cells, constantly moving through the body and replacing damaged tissue. Even severe diseases like Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), which destroys all the body's muscles, appeared to be potentially treatable ?indeed,...

Scientists unpick genetics of first 15 minutes of life

...ns. "All sexually reproducing animals do the same kind of DNA 'dance' when the DNA from the mother's egg cell and the father's sperm cell meet for the first time," said Dr Tim Karr from the University of Bath (UK) who worked closely with Drs Benjamin Loppin and Pierre Couble from Centre de G�n�tique Mol�...

Like many cancers, lymphoma cells have well-defined surface receptors that recognize unique antibodies. When attached to a carbon nanotube, the antibody would play the role...

Tropical dry forests receive international recognition

...mmediately come to mind. But they are not the only kind under threat--the tropical dry forest is in as much danger as its popular cousin yet its grave situation continues to be ignored. Dr. Arturo Sanchez-Azofeifa is hoping to change that. Sanchez-Azofeifa is the director of the newly formed TROPI-DRY,...

For instance, a treatment might directly control the level of Foxo4, or it may involve one of the signals that control Foxo4. "Now that we understa...

Retinal scans eyed for New Mexico show cattle

In a first-of-its kind project for New Mexico, scientists tested 35 market steers from 18 Quay County farm families, using a combination of eye-scanning and radio frequency identification (RFID) ear tags for animal ID evaluation.
