Cerebral navigation: How do nerve fibers know what direction to grow in?

...aged axons to regenerate (normally impossible in a mature nervous system) and ultimately restore nerve function. It's been known that cells synthesize an inhibitory protein called ephrin, which binds to a receptor called Eph on the axon's growth cone. But how this triggers the axon to change course or stop...

To sea or not to sea: When it comes to salmon sex, size sometimes doesn't matter

...e brothers and sisters from the same parents don't mature and return from sea at the same time, a way of "straying in time" so that a given pair hasn't lost all their descendants if one year's worth is wiped out. There is undoubtedly an environmental aspect in all of these, he says. The most obvious being w...

Infants with Rare Genetic Disease Saved By Cord Blood Stem Cells

...cal procedure. Finally, cord blood cells are less mature than adult bone marrow cells and thus do not need to perfectly match the patient's immune-related blood proteins, called antigens, said Kurtzberg. Only four of six cord blood "antigens" must match for a transplant to have a reasonable chance of succe...

Fox Chase study shows that weakened T-cell receptor signals change T-cell lineage

...te from stem cells in the bone marrow, but B cells mature there while T cells migrate to the thymus gland, which governs their development. "The recognition and destruction of invading pathogens by T lymphocytes is essential to the ability of humans to resist disease," said Wiest. "T cells recognize these ...

Scientists use manufacturing methods to reconstruct mastodon

...sher's studies of bone damage on fossil remains of mature mastodon males—aided by 3-D computer graphics—showed that some died of wounds inflicted by the tusks of other males during combat. The Buesching mastodon, in fact, appears to have been killed in a fight with another male mastodon and then butchered b...

NCI Researchers Confirm the Effectiveness of Immunotherapy Approach to Treating Melanoma

...de by the body that makes the tumor-fighting cells mature and multiply. Of the 35 patients in this study, 18 (51 percent) experienced an improvement in the amount of tumor present at diverse sites in the body: lung, liver, lymph nodes, brain and skin. Eight other patients demonstrated a mixed or minor resp...

Stem cells in bone marrow replenish mouse ovaries

...s) generated following bone marrow transplants can mature and be fertilized to give rise to viable mouse pups, the findings provide an important first step toward investigating such potential for restoring fertility. In addition, the findings open the door for future studies examining whether restoration of...

New method shows it is possible to grow bone for grafts within a patient's body

...ved up to their highest expectations. Working with mature rabbits, a species with bones that are very similar to those of humans, the researchers were delighted to find that this zone, which they have dubbed the "in vivo bioreactor," filled healthy bone in about six weeks. And it did so without having to co...

Significantly, the research also shows that the finished miRNAs are associated with a protein called Argonaute 2, known to be involved in inactivating messenger RNA.

Scripps research scientists identify infertility molecule

Often, women will undergo treatments for infertility that range from taking hormones to stimulate ovulation to having their eggs ...

Scientists succeed in cloning human embryos from eggs matured in the lab

However, there are few human MII oocytes available for research because almost all that are retrieved from women seeking fertility tr...
