Nicotine rush hinges on sugar in neurons

...online proposes a role for sugar as the hinge that opens a gate in the cell membrane and brings news of nicotine’s arrival. Structural biologist Raymond Stevens of The Scripps Research Institute, who was not involved in the study, called it “a landmark accomplishment for the fields of structural biology ...

ASU research shows connection between testosterone, dietary antioxidants and bird coloration

...ing more corn,” he said. “This study certainly opens the door for future work on nutritional/antioxidant therapy for the hormonally immunocompromised,” McGraw added. “The interface between diet and health in animals is a fascinating one. But we need a much better understanding of their interactions, a...

Plastic that grows on trees

...s chemistry at the University of Texas. “This work opens the way for fundamental catalysis science in a novel solvent.” The chemistry at work remains largely a mystery, Zhang said, but he suspects that metal chloride catalysts work during an atom-swapping phase that sugar molecules go through called mut...

Researchers demonstrate way to control tree height

...y controlled by genetic engineering techniques. It opens the door to a wide variety of new products for the ornamental and nursery industries, experts say, if regulatory hurdles can be overcome – a big “if.” The findings were recently published in the journal Landscape Plant News. “From a science p...

Definitive evidence found of a swimming dinosaur

...sediment. "The trackway at La Virgen del Campo opens the door to several new areas of research," said Costeur. "New biomechanical modeling will increase our understanding of dinosaur physiology and physical capabilities, as well as our view of the ecological niches in which they lived." ...

Scripps research team sheds light on long-sought cold sensation gene

...Dhaka, "At warm temperature it remains closed, but opens when exposed to cool temperature." The TRPM8-deficient mice did not lose their ability to feel pain in response to extreme cold, as evidenced by responses similar to wild type mice when exposed to -1° C cold plates. This suggests that other genes...

Slowing the racing heart

Solaro worked with Yunbo Ke, UIC research a...

Researchers attach genes to minichromosomes in maize

...ach genes to those minichromosomes. This discovery opens new possibilities for the development of crops that are multiply resistant to viruses, insects, fungi, bacteria and herbicides, and for the development of proteins and metabolites that can be used to treat human illnesses. In a paper published in th...

Iowa State scientists demonstrate first use of nanotechnology to enter plant cells

... And once you get inside the plant cell wall, it opens up "whole new possibilities," Wang said. "We really don’t know what’s going on inside the cell. We’re on the outside looking in. This gets us inside where we can study the biology per se," Wang said. ...

Fast and slow -- How the spinal cord controls the speed of movement

...pattern relates to other vertebrates, the research opens a door toward basic understanding of the architecture and function of nerves in spinal cords. With regard to regeneration of spinal cords following injury, for example, medical researchers need a template for a normal spinal cord in order to know if ...

Gene found for rare disorder may reveal new pathway in mental retardation

...lia deLange syndrome," added Dr. Krantz, "and also opens an avenue for investigating genetic mechanisms in broader populations of patients with abnormal brain development, in mental retardation and possibly autism as well." ...

Mine runoff continues to provide clues to microbial diversification

...te closely related organisms,?Banfield said. “This opens the way for detailed studies of how a wide range of microbial communities are structured and how they function.? Hettich agreed that today’s powerful molecular tools are playing a vital role in investigating the complexity of how bacterial consorti...

Prehistoric origins of stomach ulcers uncovered

...suffering the effects of this bacteria but it also opens up new possibilities for understanding early human migration. By showing that Helicobacter pylori emerged from Africa at the same time as early humans it makes it easier to examine some of the controversial questions about human migration. For exampl...

Link found between immune system and high plasma lipid levels

"GOS opens a huge window into biological and genomic diversity and, within this diversity, to better understand many of the fundamentals of biology." he adds. Expanding the universe of protein families But instead of whole genomes, metagenomics produce...

Elucidation of the genome for diabetics with DNA chips

...ed online in Nature on February 11 2007. This work opens up entirely new avenues of prevention and treatment for this disease. There are more than 200 million diabetics worldwide, and it has been predicted that this number will double by 2030. This increase in the number of diabetics is linked to the obes...

Bioluminescence at the service of a novel cerebral imaging technique

...ures using this approach. This novel technique opens numerous perspectives. This tracer can thus be expressed in all cells of the brain nervous system (both neurons and glial cells) in order to monitor the activity of the whole brain. Preliminary data are already available. For the first time, it is...

FSU researchers determine a critical factor in workings of proteins

...cal attraction increases the rate. "This theory opens numerous opportunities for further study," Zhou said. "For example, we now can begin to uncover the molecular bases of large variations in association rate among proteins. It also might be possible to design proteins with the desired association rate...
