Researchers reveal the infectious impact of salmon farms on wild salmon

...ected." The anchored farms, open cages of closely packed salmon, are aquatic feedlots providing the ideal conditions for the breeding and spread of sea lice amongst the adult fish. For the migrating wild salmon, the farm is a concentrated point source of infectious lice larvae. "We found lice levels excee...

New RNA polymerase discovered in plants

... Pol IV subunits are knocked out, the most tightly packed DNA in the nucleus becomes less condensed, small RNAs called siRNAs corresponding to highly repeated 5S rRNA genes and retrotransposons (jumping genes) are completely eliminated and DNA methylation at 5S genes and retrotransposons is lost. Methylati...

Hopkins AIDS experts issue warning about global efforts to provide drug therapies

... researchers argue that the history of medicine is packed with examples of immediate demand for new therapies outstripping supply. They also point out that rationing of supplies was necessary in all cases, but that public distrust and outrage arose when patient selection methods conflicted with local princi...

VCU study shows hormone-like molecule kills cells that cause inflammation in allergic disease

...7; treatment." According to Ryan, mast cells are packed with granules containing histamine and are present in nearly all tissues except blood. When mast cells are activated, inflammatory substances such as histamine, heparin and a number of cytokines are rapidly released into the tissues and blood, promot...

'Underground' tunnels discovered as means for communication between immune system cells

...rconnecting molecular bridges that conjoin tightly packed cells - are known to generate calcium signals and transport other molecules between cells, the researchers say the tunneling nanotubules are something quite different. "This is clearly a third form of intercellular communication, distinct from gap j...

Computers close in on protein structure prediction

... atoms on top of each other. It's about as densely packed as it could be. It's like a three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle." The researchers upped their odds of finding the right match by repeating the two-step process with 50 homologs of the proteins from other genomes, such as a mouse or fly. The protocol was...

"It is synthesized by different crustaceans, mollusks, algae, insects, fungi and yeasts and is a major structural component o...

University of Delaware researchers develop cancer 'nanobomb'

...ty of conditions." Explosions in air of loosely packed nanotubes have been seen before in an oxygen environment, creating ignition. However, the work reported by Panchapakesan uses the localized thermal energy imbalance to set off explosions that are intrinsic in nature. Panchapakesan said the nanobom...

3D ultrasound device poised to advance minimally invasive surgery
