The secret love life of plants

...mbryos and endosperm. They develop together into mature seeds. The exact process, and the communication between the two parts of the seeds, has been unclear to scientists. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research and the University of Cologne have, however, isolated a mutant whe...

Embryos tell story of Earth's earliest animals

...ryos," the scientists write, since fossils of more mature animal forms are likely to be limited, maybe non-existent. Much mystery surrounds the sudden appearance of animals in the fossil record, between 500 and 600 million years ago. Within a few million years, the fossil record goes from zero evidence of...

Sweetgum tree could help lessen shortage of bird flu drug

...t is most abundant in the fruit, Poon says. In the mature tree, the fruit emerges as a green seedpod that later dries into a brown, spiny husk, which releases an abundance of tiny, grain-like seeds. To optimize shikimic acid extraction, the gumballs need to be harvested when they are still green and before ...

Invasive species harms native hardwoods by killing soil fungus

... suggests garlic mustard invades the understory of mature forests by poisoning the allies of its main competitors," Stinson says. "By killing off native soil fungi, the appearance of this weed in an intact forest could stifle the next generation of dominant canopy trees. It could also invite other native an...

GlycoFi announces the first production of antibodies with human glycosylation in yeast

Given the mature and well-established nature of yeast-based protein production technology, the reported work also promises to improve the production and scale-up economics of antibody manufacturing. Monoclonal antibodies constitute the majority of therapeutic protei...

A surprising pair of proteins help make healthy eggs

...and hormones. Without granulosa cells, eggs cannot mature and be successfully fertilized. How do these handmaidens grow? Biologists at Brown University and the University of California–Berkeley have discovered that two proteins ?TAF4b and c-Jun ?team up to turn on about two dozen genes inside the nuclei of...

Powerful technique for multiplying adult stem cells may aid therapies

...ess with which adult stem cells differentiate into mature tissue the moment they're isolated from the body. This makes it nearly impossible for researchers to multiply them in the laboratory. And because adult stem cells are so rare, that makes it difficult to use them for treating disease. Now, researche...

Botox could help target resistant tumors for treatment

...y, and lack smooth muscle layers, but one can find mature blood vessels, with smooth muscle layers that respond to toxins like Botulinun, inside tumors. Several laboratories, including ours, are working on new strategies to alleviate tumor hypoxia, which sensitizes the tumor to treatment. Botox appears to o...

Antibodies are proteins that sit on the surface of B cells or that are secreted by B cells that can detect the presence of foreign invaders like bacteria, viruses or parasites. Lab tests revealed that the B cells in enl...

...d they can't get the support they need to become a mature functioning egg cell." "You need at least one good healthy single oocyte that is ovulated and fertilized by a sperm to get a healthy baby. Genistein seems to have a way of making this task very difficult," said Newbold. "I don't think we can dismi...
