Alcohol's effects on gene expression in the central nervous system

...croarray studies ?the examination of a small glass microscope slide that has thousands of different DNA samples attached to it ?that are applied to brain function are just beginning in the field of alcoholism. Several years ago, it was impossible to analyze more than a handful of these genes, however, microarra...

Zebrafish may hold key to understanding human nerve cell development

... cells are exposed and can be easily seenunder the microscope in the live fish. We can also visually identifythe consequences of gene defects in the 200 to 300 embryos each femalefish produces," she said.By studying these mutant embryos, Piotrowski and her colleaguesdiscovered that during development the zebraf...

Devising Nano Vision for an Optical Microscope

...IST) suggests that a hybrid version of the optical microscope might be able to image and measure features smaller than 10 nanometers—a tiny fraction of the wavelength of visible light. In a preliminary test of the embryonic technique, NIST scientists used violet light with a wavelength of 436 nanometers to ima...

Great White shark evolution debate involves WSU Lake Campus geology professor

...ticated computer program. He even uses an electron microscope to view different serration designs of shark teeth. "Our analysis of their teeth shows that Great White and mako sharks have very similar tooth growth trajectories, while those of the great white and megladon are not similar. Analysis of both the ro...

Revolutionary nanotechnology illuminates brain cells at work

...lutamate, and we could see this activity under the microscope by watching the color change. We stimulated the neurons and watched them secrete glutamate in response. We also saw the removal of the glutamate as the neurons returned to normal ready to fire again." "This is a tremendously exciting technology," re...

Nano-bumps could help repair clogged blood vessels

...cells. After one hour, the discs were washed and a microscope was used to count how many of the dyed cells adhered to the material. The researchers found that nearly three times as many cells stuck to the discs containing the nano-bumps, as compared to ordinary titanium. "After one hour, we get three times mor...

Study: 'homemade' gene expression technology unreliable

...whole gene sequences that are laid out on a single microscope slide by fast-moving robotic machines. Scientists determine how the expression of individual genes is turned up or down by placing copies of DNA or RNA molecules labeled with fluorescent dyes on the slide, and examining whether the molecules that bin...

Successful Test Of Single Molecule Switch Opens The Door To Biomolecular Electronics

...m may have been solved by using the scanning probe microscope to make and measure single-molecule contacts, with molecules designed to bond at their ends with a surface and the probe tip. The second problem has been that these connected molecules have failed to exhibit the predicted electrical properties when ...

Microscopes at microscopic size

Microarrays as phenotype

...d to the DNA on the slides. Researchers then use a microscope to measure how much of a specific nucleic acid is present. Genotype is the genetic fingerprint of a particular cell. Phenotype is the outward manifestation of the genotype. For example, a person may have genes for eye color. That is that individual'...

Gov't Creates Gene Database of Normal Human Tissues

...ht pattern is then measured with a special type of microscope and the results are fed into a computer for analysis. Gene expression microarrays have been used in numerous applications, including identifying novel genes associated with certain cancers, classifying tumors, and predicting patient outcome. Another...
