Researchers reveal the infectious impact of salmon farms on wild salmon

...e of the fish that compromises a fish's ability to maintain its salt-water balance. When infection rates are high enough, the parasites feed on the fish at rates greater than the fish can feed itself, literally eating the fish alive. Adult salmon can survive sea lice infection, but young salmon are much more ...

Enzyme shown to help protect genomic stability

...biquitin 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 st...

Plant hemoglobins: Oxygen handlers critical for nitrogen fixation

... root nodules. Furthermore, these proteins help to maintain 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 h...

In laboratory experiments with human and animal cells, the UCSD team discovered that the alpha4 integrin recruits enzymes that block Rac activity only at the rear of a crawling cell. The scientists noted that alpha4 integrins a...

One major implication of the research, he said, is that it disputes the theory that West Antarctic ice streams retreated when the ice shelf...
