Wild grasses and man-made wheats advance research capabilities

...d species to a hexaploid wheat and then rescue and nurture the developing embryo to get a plant, he said. Hexaploid wheat has three genomes or sets of chromosomes. This is the makeup of the typical bread wheat. After such a cross, the initial plant will have genetic abnormalities. A series of crosses back t...

Rodent social behavior encoded in junk DNA

...e readily and were more apt to form pair bonds and nurture their young. "If you think of brain circuits as locked rooms, the vasopressin receptor as a lock on the door, and vasopressin as the key that fits it, only those circuits that have the receptors can be 'opened' or influenced by the hormone," added H...

Environment, not genes, key in family relationships

...ow, it appears, nature may play a larger role than nurture when it comes to family relationships between adolescents and their parents. Researchers from the University of Texas at Austin and George Washington University in Washington, D.C., used data on 674 families, each with a same-sex adolescent pair, to...

U-M scientists discover identifying markers for primitive blood-forming stem cells

...thelial cells produce substances that regulate and nurture the growth of these stem cells. If we can identify these growth factors, it could help us learn how to manipulate and grow colonies of HSCs outside the body, which could lead to new medical treatments for sickle cell anemia, leukemia and other types ...

Bigger brain size matters for intellectual ability

... be determined what the contribution of nature and nurture are to this cerebral size relationship with intelligence, Witelson said. She added that the results point to the need for responsibility in considering the likely future use of magnetic imaging (or MRIs) of brain structure as a measure of ability in ...

Phenotype is influenced by nature, nurture and noise

...r decades the relative importance of nature versus nurture in determining how an animal looks and behaves, and now UCSD scientists report that noise could also be an important factor in determining phenotype.

A surprising pair of proteins help make healthy eggs

...roteins that cause granulosa cells to multiply and nurture developing eggs. The finding, published in an advanced online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, provides an important piece of the reproduction puzzle, and it points to possible drug targets for treating infertility and...

Medium is the message for stem cells in search of identities

'Failed' experiment yields a biocontrol agent that doesn't trigger antibiotic resistance

...y sector, success at ConjuGon will ultimately help nurture future scientific innovations from the university. "Because WARF is the licensor of my patent, and the company is a licensee, ConjGon, if successful, will ultimately support more UW research," Filutowicz explains. A powerful, long-reaching impact...

Stem cells engage in dialogue with the cells that regulate their futures

... which contain tiny cradles made of cap cells that nurture stem cells. Each such cradle contains two to three stem cells preparing to become fly eggs that are cuddled in a niche composed of three to six cap cells. Cap cells adhere to stem cells and this close contact may allow cap cells to play critical rol...

Why aren't humans furry? Stone-Age moms could be the answer
