St. Jude study solves mystery of mammalian ears

...es that showed in mammals that the role of somatic mobility driven by prestin is not simply to modify the response of the outer hair cells’ cilia to incoming sound waves in the cochlea fluid. Instead, somatic motility itself appears to dominate the amplification process in the mammalian cochlea, while the cil...

In nature, proteins sweep up nanoparticles

... aggregate, we have the potential to control their mobility in the subsurface by adding constituents that drive aggregation,” says Banfield. The scientists also sought to understand the mechanism by which proteins promote nanoparticle aggregation. They found that the presence of cysteine, an amino acid tha...

New fMRI technology making brain tumor surgery safer

...fMRI data, which pinpoint language, cognition, and mobility centers of the brain, allow neurosurgeons to remove tumors to the greatest extent possible without harming areas that are critical to the patient’s quality of life. Functional MRI creates a series of images that capture blood oxygen levels in part...

Researchers to develop active nanoscale surfaces for biological separations

...ne and his colleagues recently discovered that the mobility of DNA molecules is closely coupled to the movement of the underlying lipid bilayer. "The advantage of these surfaces is that they can be actively modified," Kane said. "Thus by changing the temperature, shining light, or applying an electric fiel...

Gene therapy research switches off joint inflammation; switches on genetic process of joint repair

...lled clinical trial will assess a variety of pain, mobility and functional assessments in subjects with moderate osteoarthritis of the knee. Prior to this clinical investigation Reparagen was found to be the first natural product to "silence" genes that promote joint damage while simultaneously activating the...

Biological motors sort molecules one by one on a chip

Spinal cord bridge bypasses injury to restore mobility

...he spinal cord. It brought about markedly improved mobility for the seven rats given the chondroitinase treatment. A control group of five rats underwent the same procedure. Instead of the chondroitinase, they were given a saline solution. None showed any nerve growth out of the bridge or improvement in th...

MIT 'seeing machine' offers hope to blind

...he machine "may have the potential to assist their mobility in unfamiliar environments," according to the Optometry article. Concluded Goldring: "A couple of them said they'd tried every seeing aid available (magnifying devices, etc.), and this was by far the best, even in this rough, rough shape." Goldring ...

The stem cells used in the study were a recently discovered stem cell type, referred to as multipotent adult progenitor cells, or MAPCs. Treated animals experienced at least 25 percent greater improvement in motor and neurologi...

Nobelist discovers antidepressant protein in mouse brain

...p11 genes, compared to control mice, had increased mobility in a test that is used to measure antidepressant-like activity. They also had more 5-HT1B receptors at the cell surface that were capable of increased serotonin transmission. The opposite occurred when researchers molecularly knocked out the p11 ge...
