Researchers make surprise discovery that some neurons can transmit three signals at once

...estation in a human, when neurons are meticulously organizing and self-selecting to assemble into specific brain structures and neuronal networks. It has long been known that a specific receptor for glutamate, the NMDA receptor, plays a crucial role in these processes, but how inhibitory synapses, which account...

New complete muscle grown in the lab

...gated muscle fiber tubes and the endothelial cells organizing themselves in tubes nestled between the myoblasts. By adding fibroblast cells to the scaffold, the researchers were able to significantly boost the growth of the blood vessel network forming within the muscle tissue. Thanks in part to the stabilizin...

'Uniquely human' component of language found in gregarious birds

...bly discriminate between two different patterns of organizing the sounds they use to communicate. "Our research is a refutation of the canonical position that what makes human language unique is a singular ability to comprehend these kinds of patterns," said Timothy Gentner, assistant professor of psychology ...

'Nano-keys' bind cell receptors and trigger allergic reactions

...getting turned on. We can then see how the cell is organizing itself due to the stimulus." Collaborators include: David Holowka, Cornell senior scientist in chemistry; and the research groups of Harold G.

Formation of cellulose fibers tracked for the first time

...crotubules act as more than a general scaffold for organizing the cell wall; individual elements of the microtubule array appear to actively direct the pattern of the cellulose fibers. This work should set a long-standing discussion to rest." ...

Anemone genes reveal versatile building blocks for body plans

...one's version of genes known to be responsible for organizing the dorso/ventral axis in bilateral animals. Matus and colleagues found that two types of proteins--so-called TGFß ligands and an antagonist protein that functions in opposition to the ligands--encoded by these genes are expressed differently in an...

RNA found in the cellular centrosome of surf clams

...of the genetic material RNA in the centrosome, the organizing structure inside each cell that assures proper cell division. The findings, detailed June 5 in the online early edition of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, present evidence that individual centrosomes within a cell may c...

New angiogenesis finding may help fight cancer growth

.... Because NK-B prevents endothelial cells from organizing into blood vessels, Bresnick says, "Maybe excess levels of NK-B are responsible for or contribute to impaired vascular development/function and certain symptoms of preeclampsia." According to the Preeclampsia Foundation, the condition affects about 2...

Pheromone from mother's milk may rapidly promote learning in newborn mammals

...y cues, the mammary pheromone may act as a kind of organizing signal that boosts the brain's ability to associate new odors with milk availability.
