Poor prenatal nutrition permanently damages function of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas

...outwardly different about them." The two groups of offspring ate the same chow diet, maintained a similar weight, and neither group was allowed to become overweight, eliminating this common risk factor for diabetes. The only difference was that the mothers had been fed differently during the final week. As th...

Same mutation aided evolution in many fish species, Stanford study finds

... Eda gene. When those fish bred, some gave rise to offspring with two copies of the mutation and no (or reduced) body armor. In a freshwater habitat those fish prospered and populated the stream or lake with similarly armorless offspring. Kingsley said this work is part of a larger study to understand how evo...

Introduced foxes transformed vegetation on Aleutian Islands from lush grasslands to tundra

...r of the paper. "Most seabirds only have a single offspring each year, so their capacity for population increase is quite low. The foxes are mostly off the islands now, but we will probably continue to see the effects for a long time," Estes said. In addition to Croll and Estes, the authors of the Science pa...

Love at first smell

...ales with insufficient MHC molecules would provide offspring with the ideal number of MHC types. However, when the perfume was added to males that already had the ideal range of MHC molecules, females could also be fooled into believing that these males smelled repulsive: having too many immune genes for offsp...

Sexual cooperation: Mating increases longevity in ant queens

... of their mate for the rest of their lives. Sexual offspring are only produced after several months or years of colony growth, during which a sterile worker force is built up in the population. The fact that mates bond so early reduces the conflict between mating partners because both sexes benefit from the qu...

How the environment could be damaging men's reproductive health

... the implications of these changes on sex ratio of offspring as the number of children born to these fishermen was small. "However, we think the fact that exposure to environmentally derived chemicals can change the sex chromosome ratio in sperm is worrying in itself and requires more attention from scientist...

Same-Sex Mating Discovered in a Toxic Fungus

..."Sex is generally beneficial as a means to produce offspring with different gene combinations that can adapt more rapidly to new environments," said HHMI investigator Joseph Heitman, M.D., Ph.D., of Duke, senior author of the study. "The findings suggest for the first time that the fungus has developed a nove...

Maine Researchers Find Exceptions to Old Rules of Genetic Inheritance

...ass the t haplotype to nearly 100 percent of their offspring (a phenomenon known as "transmission ratio distortion")-practically twice the Mendelian prediction. Stranger still, male and female mice that inherit the t haplotype from both parents typically do not survive, but in the rare instances when they do,...

Making Sure Sacred Sheep Don't Become Extinct

They keep doing this until the sheep are 93 percent Churro. The collection could also be used by breeders or researcher...

Radio-tracking associated with 'dramatic shift' in water vole sex ratio

...mothers with access to poor resources will produce offspring of the sex most likely to disperse and therefore reduce local competition for resources. "Radio-collars clearly have the potential to cause some stress to water voles, and it is possible that this might stimulate sex-ratio adjustment as part of an e...

Alarm pheromone causes aphids to sprout wings

...pheromone also causes pea aphids to produce winged offspring that leave their host plant when mature. Because some plants can also release (E)-â-farnesene, they could in theory manipulate aphids into flying away. However, aphids were shown to react mainly to the frequency of pheromone release and not the actu...

All mammals previously studied have maximum rest or sleep behavior at birth with amounts gradually decreasing to adult levels. In fact, past findings that sleep depr...
