Researchers discover way to make cells in the eye sensitive to light

...n. When the mice lackingmelanopsin were exposed to low light, their pupillary response was thesame as normal mice, but when they were exposed to bright light theirpupil constriction was incomplete.The researchers believe that while not a cure for blindness, thefindings could lead to therapies for treatin...

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...re than a century, oceanographers puzzled over the low abundance of phytoplankton in some ocean waters that seemed to hold all the basic nutrients for life. Speculation that iron provided part of the answer goes back to the 1930s. However, it wasn't until 1989 in the journal Nature that oceanographer Joh...

Enzyme shown to help protect genomic stability

...is associated with gene activation and to maintain low levels of the ubiquitin molecule at those sites. Interestingly, Ubp10 appears to work similarly and in concert with another enzyme called Sir2, which removes acetyl molecules from histones. Sir2 has also been associated with promoting genomic stabil...

Plant hemoglobins: Oxygen handlers critical for nitrogen fixation

...in free-oxygen concentrations in nodules at levels low enough to avoid damage of oxygen-sensitive nitrogenase, the bacterial enzyme complex responsible for symbiotic nitrogen fixation. Thus, plant hemoglobins fulfill roles analogous to those of animal hemoglobins, as well as novel roles that are apparent...

Highly adaptable genome in gut bacterium key to intestinal health

... were fed a diet high in complex carbohydrates and low in simple sugars. Ten days later, the activity of all genes in the bacterial genome was surveyed in B. theta from the mice's guts. The research team found that 1,237 of the bacterium's 4,779 genes were highly active compared to B. theta grown in a s...

Gene Therapy For Parkinson's Disease Moves Forward In Animals

So we have to control it, and we're working on this as we speak. But it's not ready for clinical trials.?/p> About a half million Amer...

Researchers add new tool to tumor-treatment arsenal

...maging agents can be toxic, and doses that are too low allow for DNA repair and further cell growth. Thus, says Dr. Thomas, there is need for drugs that can sensitize cells to lower doses of DNA-damaging agents to guarantee cell death, but without the toxic side effects. The researchers studied the resu...

Ice core 'dipstick' indicates West Antarctic ice has thinned less than believed

... for more than 600 miles. An ice sheet with such a low profile and gradual decline would have had to have a very slippery bed to maintain its continuous flow, Waddington said, and it appears the ice flowed vigorously despite being relatively thin. One major implication of the research, he said, is that ...

Family trees of ancient bacteria reveal evolutionary moves

There were three ?some say four ?global glaciations, and the fossil record reflects a major shift in the number of organisms metabolizing sulfur and a major shift in carbon cycling.
