species. Following rules laid out in the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature, they prepared a short description of the plant in Latin and a longer one in English, and provided drawings and other information to make a strong case for the reco...
Newly identified biomarker detects and regulates spread of brain tumors
...ysis of proteins secreted by CNS tumors. This newfound
ability to reliably identify biomarkers for malignant astrocytomas means that physicians will have a new minimally invasive method to track the success of treatments. These biomarkers, singly or in combination, will provide a fingerprint of the dise...
Iron critical to ocean productivity, carbon uptake
...opical Pacific centered on the equator. With their newfound
knowledge of fluorescence, the scientists believe they now can use satellite imagery to identify specific areas that are iron-stressed ?and how they respond to changes such as the sudden influx of iron from a windstorm. "It turns out different place...
Worm hormone discovery may aid fight against parasitic disease
...n C. elegans. Like a key fitting into a lock, the newfound
ligand binds to a protein in the cell's nucleus called a nuclear receptor, a receptor designated DAF-12. Once that binding occurs, DAF-12 activates other genes that allow the worm to develop through its normal stages, reach maturity and reproduce. ...

...ent deposition. In addition, he suggests that the newfound
system may provide incentive to launch studies to other remote undersea environments in the poles and in other glacial settings such as Lake Vostok, also in the Antarctic, to further explore the little-understood connection where ice sheets, the seaf...
