UCSB scientists probe sea floor venting to gain understanding of early life on Earth

UAB scientists discover the origin of a mysterious physical force

...ly understanding the properties of this force that occurs when molecules surrounded by water adhere to each other is also useful in the chemical industry, particularly when involving mechanisms in which colloidal suspensions must be stabilised, such as the mechanisms used to produce paints, cosmetics and fo...

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...diatoms and other phytoplankton, but something odd occurs as these tiny marine plants continue to grow. They begin to starve in the midst of plenty, acting as though iron, an essential nutrient, still is in short supply. Why this happens is unclear, but the answer could be that iron sets off a kind of chemi...

Scientists detect probable genetic cause of some Parkinson's disease cases

...sed with Parkinson's disease eachyear. The disease occurs when certain nerve cells die or becomeimpaired and can no longer produce dopamine, a brain signaling chemical(neurotransmitter). Without it, individuals can develop tremor ortrembling in hands, arms, legs, jaw, and face; rigidity or stiffness ofthe l...

Novel Enzyme Shows Potential As An Anti-HIV Target

...leagues went on to show that transcription via Tat occurs in the presence of SIRT1, but not when SIRT1’s catalytic center is removed. Experiments using cells taken from transgenic mice lacking SIRT1 demonstrated that introducing human SIRT1 enzymes increased Tat’s transcriptional effects in a dose-dependent...

Researchers identify target for cancer drugs

...a process called "phosphorylation"). This process occurs not only in human cells but in other organisms such as the fruit fly. Finding this complex conserved in species as diverse as flies and humans supports the claim that the mTOR/rictor complex is indeed a missing piece of the puzzle. According to Sarb...

UCSD researchers maintain stem cells without contaminated animal feeder layers

For a proposed animal-free medium, the UCSD study takes advantage of a previously unidentified soluble factor this is secreted from mouse feeder layers to maintain stem cells' undifferentiated state and pluripotency, the ability to...

Researchers discover molecule that causes secondary stroke

...d vessels in the brain, cerebral vasospasm usually occurs three to 10 days following a massive brain bleed known as hemorrhagic stroke. Sixty percent of patients who survive the initial stroke develop vasospasm, and 40 percent of them die from it. Vasospasm, says neurology department researcher Joseph Clar...

Scientists identify genetic pathways essential to RNA interference

... RNA segments, shutting down gene expression. RNAi occurs naturally in plants and animals and may help control resistance to viral infection, among other functions. For the current study, lead author John Kim, PhD, and his colleagues developed a strain of C. elegans into which they added a gene that caused...

DNA Recombination and Repair—A New Twist to RecA Function

...ey are at the fiber’s 5' end, while ATP hydrolysis occurs all along its length. Under their experimental conditions, the authors found that a RecA molecule hydrolyzed 20 ATPs per minute—or one ATP every three seconds. If ATP hydrolysis occurred randomly in the fiber, one would expect a RecA molecule to dis...

So far, the researchers have kept the cells alive and thriving for several months and hope to maintain them for up to a year.
