Genes In The Interferon System Important In Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

...iscover the mechanisms behind the disease SLE, and maybe otherautoimmune diseases at the molecular level," says Professor LarsRönnblom. "Itis remarkable that by studying only eleven of the some 200 genes thatare seen as belonging to the interferon system, we were able toidentify two genes with such clear ...

Falling ants glide back to trunk to avoid dangers of forest floor

...em off the branch with my hand, and I noticed that maybe 20 or 30 of them fell in unison and then made this nice little cascade back to the tree trunk," said Yanoviak via phone from Iquitos. "That's when I realized something was up with this behavior and it was worth checking into a bit more." By painting...

Great White shark evolution debate involves WSU Lake Campus geology professor

...rks. "The general public seems to like sharks, and maybe this is because they bring out the fears of our childhood, when they were perceived as scary monsters," he explained. His interest in sharks is apparent when entering his office. The door and walls have pictures of shark teeth, and there are posted ...

Nanoscale Diagnostic Sets Sights on Alzheimer's

...it's been possible to validate the prediction, and maybe even set the stage for creating the first clinical lab test for Alzheimer's disease. " -- William Klein, Northwestern University Institute for Neuroscience Comments from NSF: "The researchers have pioneered a promising new technology in the emergin...

Researchers find first evidence of venom system in extinct mammal

"When I first saw [the groove] I thought maybe it was a cavity," said Yong-Qin Sun, the lab technician who prepared the fossil, which is one of thousands that the U of A researchers have collected over the years from the banks of the Blindman River near Red Deer, Alberta. Sun immediately took th...

One bacteria stops another on contact

...biotics," said Low. "If bacteria can do this, then maybe we can do it." Doctoral student and first author Stephanie Aoki, and a team of scientists working in the Low lab, made the discovery while studying other aspects of E. coli. After working for two years, the team identified two genes required for thi...

Brain activity related to processing faces is similar in people with, without autism

This is strictly conjecture, but it is a tantalizing possibility," Dichter said. Imaging allows researchers to begin looking at underlying mechanisms in brain ...

Tracking the memory trace

...M neuron," said Davis. "Our impression now is that maybe what guides the behavior after training in the first few minutes is the antennal lobe. That is the important part that guides behavior for the small window of time after training. The DPM neurons have that role from 30 minutes to two hours." The fin...

Infant transplant patients resist infections that kill adult AIDS patients

There is a lot of work that still needs to be done, but I am convinced that this field will give us more precise and less toxic ways of dealing with cancer tha...

MRSA use amoeba to spread, new research shows

...sts to help them spread, this could mean that MRSA maybe able to be 'blown in the wind' between different locations. Further evidence from research on other pathogens suggests that by infecting amoeba first, MRSA may emerge more virulent and more resistant to antibiotics when it infects humans. "Infectio...

Embryos tell story of Earth's earliest animals

...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 animals to great diversity in animal forms, ...

Clock molecule's sensitivity to lithium sheds light on bipolar disorder

...ncubator need to have their internal clocks reset, maybe this is what happens in some people with circadian disorders," says Lazar. "One effect of lithium may be to reset clocks that become stuck when Rev-erb levels build up." These results point to Rev-erb as a lithium-sensitive component of the human c...

Ancient DNA provides clues to the evolution of social behavior

...o complicated that it takes a while to evolve, but maybe if a species has to be social to survive, social behavior could evolve pretty rapidly.'' If so, the study of rare Patagonian tuco-tucos could have implications for understanding the evolution of sociality in other species that have experienced evolu...
