AAAS decries latest stem cell veto

... cells, which proponents say would be derived from microscopic embryos left over and due to be discarded after in vitro fertility treatments. Current U.S. policy limits such funding to fewer than 20 stem cell lines that had been created when the president first announced U.S. policy in 2001. "Our concern is t...

A first -- Hebrew University scientist observes brain cell development in 'real time'

...e edition of Nature Neuroscience. Using special microscopic imaging techniques, combined with virus gene technology, Dr. Mizrahi was able to develop an experimental model to study development of neural dendrites in vivo. The dendrites are the string-like extensions of the neuron that spread out to reach other...

Brain's white matter -- More 'talkative' than once thought

...d causes electrical signals in the OPCs. A further microscopic hunt revealed that pools of glutamate were present in the nerve fibers wherever they touched OPCs. All of the nerve cells in the white matter that released glutamate within reach of OPCs, moreover, had something in common: no myelin insulation. N...

Latent memory of cells comes to life

...ematical model based on positive feedback from the microscopic state of the nucleosomes, the research group could simulate the experimental results and in this way gained insight into the mechanisms by which living cells with identical DNA can achieve extreme differentiation. The research at the ‘Models of Li...

Switching genes to overdrive improves muscular dystrophy symptoms in mice

...d MDX mice on both runs. The exercise tests and microscopic and chemical examinations of the muscles showed that boosting PGC-1alpha caused “a clear and substantial improvement in the structure and function of skeletal muscle in this disease model,?the scientists wrote....

MIT's ocean model captures diversity of underwater forests

...l so realistic that the virtual forests of diverse microscopic plants they "sowed" have grown in population patterns that precisely mimic their real-world counterparts. This model of the ocean is the first to reflect the vast diversity of the invisible forests living in our oceans-tiny, single-celled green plan...

Nanotechnology meets biology and DNA finds its groove

...d DNA. The new technique is akin to threading a microscopic needle with a thread of DNA, explains Juan de Pablo, a UW-Madison professor of biomedical engineering and a co-author of the study. The team has a way, he says, of "positioning the DNA molecule right where we want it to be. It is important that we ca...

New recommendations against a major opportunistic infection -- cryptococcosis

...iduals suffering from cryptococcosis. Caused by a microscopic fungus, Cryptococcus neoformans, cryptococcosis affects immunosuppressed individuals, most of whom are infected by HIV, but who also suffer from other immunological disorders or who are receiving immunosuppressive treatments. Most often, the fungus c...

Molecular differences between early and advanced melanomas could provide new drug targets

When melanoma cells overexpressing Akt were introduced into immunocompromised (nude) mice, the mice developed aggressive tumors that expressed high levels of VEGF, wher...

Scientists discover new life forms in the Arctic Ocean

...e. The researchers have discovered a new group of microscopic organisms, which they have baptized "picobiliphytes": pico because of their extremely small size, measured in millionths of a meter, bili because they contain biliproteins, highly fluorescent substances that transform light into biomass, and phyte me...

Researchers find 6,000-year-old fossil evidence

...'s why we used a technique that involved analyzing microscopic starch grains on cooking and grinding tools to find this new evidence." Pearsall, who studied tools from sites in Ecuador and the Bahamas, teamed with a group of scientists doing research in various locations in Central and South America; the proj...
