Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...come spinal motor neurons, critical nervous system pathways that relay messages from the brain to the rest of the body. The new findings, reported online today (Jan. 30, 2005) in the journal Nature Biotechnology by scientists from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, are important because they provide critic...

NYU Study Reveals How Brain's Immune System Fights Viral Encephalitis

... to the protective effect of interferons, inducing pathways to fight the virus' spread. However, their findings showed that interferons fight the virus at different stages of the virus' life cycle. First, they inhibit viral RNA and protein synthesis. If this fails, interferons block the virus from forming par...

A bacterial genome reveals new targets to combat infectious disease

...ies. Slatko and colleagues enumerate a variety of pathways that have either been degraded or preserved, and highlight patterns in the genome structure through comparisons with other bacteria. For example, Wolbachia can manufacture some essential metabolic coenzymes, which do not appear to be made by its host...

New imaging method gives early indication if brain cancer therapy is effective, U-M study shows

.... This indicates a different mixture of cell death pathways within the tumors. In the end, any change is good. When you think about it, if the treatment is not having an effect, the tumor will continue to grow without any change to water diffusion," Ross said. The researchers found that for each of the 20 pa...

Poplar trees redirect resources in response to simulated attack

Plants subjected to the jasmonic acid "attack" produced more radiolabeled ...

In the sea slug's defense against lobsters, confusion is key

...d these chemicals serve to activate nervous-system pathways that control feeding behaviors of the lobster. The inky secretion also stimulates other behaviors in the lobster, including grooming and avoidance. Ironically, the slug's ability to trick the lobster's nervous system into activating feeding-associate...

UCSD researchers maintain stem cells without contaminated animal feeder layers

...llular events will help to unravel the biochemical pathways responsible for 'stemness'. An increased efficiency in the generation and culture of human stem cells for potential clinical applications is timely, given the recent report of 17 newly derived stem cell lines available for non-federal research. The f...
