Anti-bacterial additive widespread in U.S. waterways

...eChemistry department at Johns Hopkins University, observed theoccurrence of triclocarban in the environment correlated strongly withthat of triclosan, another commonly used antimicrobial chemical thathas been studied in much greater detail because it is more easilydetectable.Using an empirical model and publ...

Researchers Uncover Key Step In Manufacture of Memory Protein

... During their research, Dr. Loh and her colleagues observed mice genetically incapable of producing CPE. In these mice, proBDNF could not be delivered into the lipid raft-rich vesicles for conversion to mBDNF. Instead, it appeared to leak out of the golgi apparatus, where it leached through the cell membrane ...

Plants respond similarly to signals from friends, enemies

...tany and co-author of the paper. Weerasinghe first observed the changes in the plants triggered by signals from rhizobia, called Nod factors, and then saw the similar changes occurring when plants were signaled by root-knot nematodes. In the paper, the researchers call the nematodes' signals "Nematode factors...

The secret to longevity in tubeworms

...luxes in the water near the vents do not match the observed tubeworm colony size and individual longevity, leading Cordes et al. to propose that L. luymesi also uses its roots to release sulfate back to the microbial consortia from which it draws its sulfide. Without this return of sulfate, the model predicts...

Transplantation Of Monkey Embryonic Stem Cells Reverses Parkinson Disease In Primates

The authors observed increased DA neuron development andsubsequently transplanted these neurons into monkeys treated with anagent called MPTP, which is considered a primate model for Parkinsondisease. These transplanted cells were able to function as DA neuronsand dimini...

New research questions basic tenet of neuron function

...beled synaptic vesicles with a fluorescent dye and observed how and when the vesicles released neurotransmitters, both when the neurons were at rest and when they were active. From these observations, as well as data gathered from electrophysiological techniques, the researchers found two distinct types of ve...

Study: Soap And Water Work Best In Ridding Hands Of Disease Viruses

...represented the average length of time researchers observed busy health-care personnel washing or otherwise disinfecting their hands at work. "Previous studies have had people clean their hands for 30 seconds or so, but that’s not what health-care workers usually do in practice, and we wanted to test the pro...

In other words, they had a hunch traditional thinking about the origin of human NK cells might be wrong. In building a case to support the...

White blood cell waste disposal system plays critical regulatory role

Once the moisture that is stored in deep soil is depleted, then the large trees that tower 130 to 150 feet above the ground, basking in full sunlight, begin to falte...

Sequencing of marine bacterium will help study of cell communication

...e National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), have so far observed both differences and similarities in gene arrangement between it and pathogenic Vibrio species. V. fischeri has a lower GC content than other sequenced Vibrio species, but it is still more closely related to them than other organisms. (Among the four...
