Prenatal Stress Keeps Infants, Toddlers up at Night, Study Says

...hilds sleep is vital to his or her growth, but the origins of problems affecting it remained unclear. Now, we have evidence that these patterns may be set early on, perhaps even before birth, said lead author Thomas OConnor, Ph.D., associate professor of Psychiatry at the University of Rochester Medical Cent...

One species, many genomes

...e. Arabidopsis plants from different geographical origins differ in many traits (the background shows schematically sequence variation in the DNA of these plants). To track down the variation in the genome of the different Arabidopsis strains, the researchers compared the genetic material of 19 wild strai...

Endosome-mediated signaling in plants

...gs will influence our thinking of the evolutionary origins of endosomes and hopefully help us to understand why cells use them as signaling compartments," noted lead author of the paper, Dr. Niko Geldner. Endosomes were once thought to function solely in the inactivation of receptors and the down-regulati...

Surprising origin of cell's internal highways

...cell imaging techniques that could reveal the true origins of these structures. "The Golgi apparatus is very close to the centrosome," said Kaverina. "So if you're not looking at it precisely, it is hard to distinguish between the centrosome and Golgi." To get a close look, Kaverina and colleagues ta...

Egyptians, not Greeks were true fathers of medicine

...ack 3,500 years say they have found proof that the origins of modern medicine lie in ancient Egypt and not with Hippocrates and the Greeks. The research team from the KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology at The University of Manchester discovered the evidence in medical papyri written in 1,500BC ?1,000 year...

Researchers publish first marsupial genome sequence

...chers with a fresh perspective on the evolutionary origins of the human genome. It sheds light on the genetic differences between placental mammals, such as humans, mice and dogs, and marsupial mammals, such as opossums and kangaroos. "Marsupials are the closest living relatives of placental mammals. Bec...

Exploring the molecular origin of blood clot flexibility

...atomic force microscope," notes Brown. Once the origins of the mechanical properties of clots are well understood, it may be possible to modulate those properties, note the study authors. "If we can change a certain parameter perhaps we can make a clot that's more or less stiff," explains Weisel. For exam...

RNA enzyme structure offers a glimpse into the origins of life

...s process poses a challenge for theories about the origins of life. "Which came first, nucleic acids or proteins? This question once seemed an intractable paradox, but with the discovery of ribozymes, it is now possible to imagine a prebiotic 'RNA World' in which self-replicating ribozymes accomplished bo...

Gene study shows three distinct groups of chimpanzees

Life on Earth may have got its start with microbes living on such chemical reactions, before the evolution of photosynthesis. "And they’re just plain interesting," Eisen added. If you were thinking that giant clams sound ta...

Honeydew honeys are better antioxidants than nectar honeys

A study of 36 Spanish honeys from different floral origins revealed that honeys generated by bees feeding on honeydew have greater antioxidant properties than those produced by bees feeding on nectar. The study is published in this month’s edition of the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture. Natur...

Morphine makes lasting -- and surprising -- change in the brain

... Brown scientist Julie Kauer, may help explain the origins of addiction in the brain. The research also supports a provocative new theory of addiction as a disease of learning and memory. "We’ve added a new piece to the puzzle of how addictive drugs affect the brain," Kauer said. "We’ve shown here that mo...

Selecting life: Scientists find new way to search for origin of life
