Untilnow, there has been no practical way to evaluate the daunting number ofpossible combinations of these proteins, any one of which could formthe opt...

Neuronal 'traffic jam' marks early Alzheimer's disease

...ges of Alzheimer's disease. They detected the same kinds of swelling in those samples that they had seen in the mice. "This was a small, initial neuropathological study, but we believe that it is significant," said Goldstein. "We found in the early cases a very strong, statistically meaningful swelling in ...

As researchers inventory more kinds of venom and uncover insecticide leads, they may be able to target insects that transmit new and emerging human diseases, such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever (ticks) and dengue and yellow fever (mosquitoes). "One could envision spe...

Weill Cornell Research Reveals Secrets Of Trafficking Within Cells

New Study from Affymetrix Laboratories Points to Changing View of How Genome Works

...protein-coding genes. The team found many diverse kinds of RNAs transcribed from distinct regions of the genome, creating a complex pool of overlapping transcription. While the team validated many known protein-coding transcripts that contribute to this complex pool, they also discovered that: Seventy-f...

Probing The Promise And Perils Of Nanoparticles

...essing those concerns by investigating how certain kinds of nanoparticles damage cell membranes—enough to cause cell death in some cases—and how the damage can be prevented. "If you're inventing these sorts of materials, you need to be concerned about their impact," said Mark Banaszak Holl, a U-M professo...

Duke Chemists Isolating Individual Molecules Of Toxic Protein In Alzheimer's, Parkinson's Disease

Given that the components of amyloid fibrils measure only billionths of a meter and are floating in a disordered mix, "the initial stages of amyloid aggregation are not fully understood," he said. "W...

New RNA polymerase discovered in plants

...rectly in the cell. Biologists have studied three kinds of RNA polymerase for decades in organisms ranging from brewer's yeast to humans. In all eukaryotes, the RNA polymerases Pol I, II, and III perform the same distinct , though separate, functions in different species. But then along came Pol IV. Pika...

The gliding behavior would be a definite advantage for ants, like Cephalotes, that forage at...

New Insights Into HIV Immunity Suggest Alternative Approach to Vaccines
