Prenatal Stress Keeps Infants, Toddlers up at Night, Study Says

... that gauged how depressed or anxious they were at multiple points early on in, late in, and after their pregnancy. Later on, the women were then asked to report on their childs sleep habits at 6, 18 and 30 months, detailing how long the child slept (a consolidated daytime and nighttime total), how often the ...

Genomic Analysis Uncovers New Targets for HIV Vaccine

...ustralia. They arrived at 486 patients who had had multiple blood tests documenting viral loads after infection and before they started receiving antiretroviral treatment. The three polymorphisms were identified after all the blood samples of the selected patients were screened for more than 555,000. Additi...

Loss of stem cells correlates with premature aging in animal study

...y need to maintain the integrity of their DNA, and multiple divisions lead to natural breaks in DNA. But when these stem cells are needed, their progeny can rapidly divide and are able to replenish the tissue with new cells. Brown explains that in the current study the mouse cells without ATR had an overw...

Small, self-controlled planes combine plant pathology and engineering

...hnology enables us to have coordinated flight with multiple aircraft. In other words, we can have two aircraft sampling pathogens at the same time but at different altitudes.” Schmale has used the small, self-controlled planes to collect samples of the fungal genus Fusarium tens to hundreds of meters above...

Herpes virus hijacks DNA repair process

...Kinases are versatile proteins that sometimes play multiple roles. To ensure that enhanced viral replication wasn't linked to orf36's interactions with other molecules, researchers turned to mice lacking the genes for ATM and H2AX, the damage response proteins activated by infection. When they infected cells ...

University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine researchers develop 'off-the-shelf' vascular grafts

Cancer stem cells similar to normal stem cells can thwart anti-cancer agents

...er and normal stem cells were protected equally by multiple drug resistance transporters, even if the bulk of the tumor responded to chemotherapy. According to Dr. Donnenberg, the very fact that cancers can and do relapse after apparently successful therapy indicates the survival of a drug-resistant, tumor...

Gene responsible for common hearing loss identified for first time

Analysis of a large French group showed the same association. “Combining the data from both groups with a common odds ratio gave a very significant result, from which we were able to conclude that we were the first to identify a gene tha...

But as genetic techniques have become increasingly powerful, many scientists have sought a more molecular definition of stem cells, based on the genes they express. Now, a team of Canadian scientists has identified...
