Research identifies protein that signals flowering in squash plants

...e they represent the ideal system for experimental manipulation to investigate this phenomenon. Principal investigator William J. Lucas explained, “it is important for these experiments to use a plant that is 100% inducible; in other words it absolutely will not flower unless it is induced. Then, with carefully d...

In mice, drug protects against diabetes and atherosclerosis

...al in hand and to replicate the effects of genetic manipulation is a huge milestone and an incredible source of excitement," said Hotamisligil, Professor of Genetics and Complex Diseases. "This drug is very effective in treating diabetes and heart disease in mice at the same time, and we believe it may turn out t...

Researchers demonstrate way to control tree height

...blets” among the flowers in the field site. The manipulation of height growth was achieved by insertion of certain genes, mostly taken from the model plant Arabidopsis, which inhibited the action of a class of plant-specific hormones known as gibberellic acids. These compounds are also used as sprays to contro...

'Smart' mice teach scientists about learning process, brain disorders

...that might create the same effects without genetic manipulation and monitoring the animals’ health and behavior over time. The findings may have applications in treating post-traumatic stress disorder, where getting a patient to learn that a once-threatening situation no longer poses a danger is a major goal....

Enhancing activity of marijuana-like chemicals in brain helps treat

... important difference, and it is why we think our manipulation of the chemicals is really different from smoking marijuana." The researchers began their study by focusing on a region of the brain known as the striatum. They were interested in that region because it has been implicated in a range of brain d...

Mechanisms involved with tumor relapse identified

...ht a number of cancers. Immunotherapy involves the manipulation of the immune system ?by introducing an antibody or lymphocytes, or immunization with a tumor vaccine ?to recognize and eradicate tumor cells. Using a transgenic mouse model of breast cancer, researchers found that interferon gamma, a cytokine or...

Designer babies - what would you do for a 'healthy' baby?

In a preview of the paper in the same issue of Neuron, Alan R. Kay, ...

P(acman) takes a bite out of deciphering Drosophila DNA

...of DNA in bacteria, recombineering that allows the manipulation of large pieces of DNA that can then be inserted into the genome of the fly at a specific site using phiC31-mediated transgenesis. It is a new technique with far-reaching promise, said Bellen. P(acman) overcomes certain obstacles that have hamp...

Bacteria could make new library of cancer drugs that are too complex to create artificially

...s that act at particular steps of that process. By manipulation of the enzyme content of the bacteria, they aim to produce a range of different compounds based closely on the form of streptorubin B normally formed by the bacteria. Some of these analogues of streptorubin B could provide the basis for developing us...

Study identifies new role for breast cancer susceptibility gene

...er initiation, mutation of BRCA1 is also linked to manipulation of the tumor microenvironment. The research appears in the July issue of Cancer Cell, published by Cell Press. Mutations in the breast cancer susceptibility gene BRCA1 account for up to 50% of hereditary breast cancers. BRCA1 is known to serve as a...

Viral hitchhiker inhibits Wolbachia bacteria's ability to proliferate

... culture conditions and that it started before any manipulation of the zona ?the 'shell' of the egg ?began. Transfer of just one embryo can therefore still lead to twins. If a higher rate of MZ twinning turns out to be a natural adaptation to improved nutrition or culture conditions, it could prove difficult ...
