Researchers examine carbon capture and storage to combat global warming

...marts ''The goal of carbon sequestration is to permanently store the carbon dioxide,'' Benson said, ''permanent meaning very, very long-term, geological time periods.'' The greatest concern surrounding carbon dioxide storage is the potential for it to leak, researchers said. The most obvious worry, sai...

Study investigates 'divorce' among Galapagos seabirds

...hows that males of this species are probably never permanently in or out of the mating game, in contrast to many other animals, she said. A male Nazca booby cast off by a current mate may be selected by a different female the next year, after he has had a chance to regain his condition....

Herpes infection may be symbiotic, help beat back some bacteria

...n, less infamous herpes viruses like HHV6 and HHV7 permanently infect most humans without ever producing any significant symptoms. The results have potentially wide-reaching implications for immune research. Humans and other mammals have spent millions of years living and evolving with latent viral infections...

The quest for an effective HIV vaccine presents new possibilities, challenges

...unity to prevent long-term HIV infection may close permanently once a pool of latently infected cells is in place, Drs. Johnston and Fauci note. Neutralizing antibodies, which can attach to and eliminate free virus, only appear after HIV levels have declined substantially. Further, the effectiveness of these ant...

Researchers discover that sheep need retroviruses for reproduction

...ep. Retroviruses are unique for their ability to permanently insert their genetic material into the DNA of host cells, he said. During evolution of mammals, some retroviruses infected the germline (cells of the ovary and testis that have genetic material that are passed to their offspring) of the host, which ...

Newly discovered behavior in cancer cells signals dangerous metastasis

...sts have believed that cancer cells must transform permanently from stationary epithelial cells into migratory mesenchymal cells in order to metastasize. The Duke team discovered that highly malignant cells are equal parts epithelial and mesenchymal, transitioning between the two as their surroundings necessita...

Study shows pine bark naturally decreases severe chronic venous insufficiency

Ever-happy mice may hold key to new treatment of depression

A new breed of permanently 'cheerful' mouse is providing hope of a new treatment for clinical depression. TREK-1 is a gene that can affect transmission of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is known to play an important role in mood, sleep and sexuality. By breeding mice with a...

Chewing up a key regulator of fat synthesis keeps mice lean despite a high-fat diet

...t happened. Mice genetically engineered to express permanently elevated levels of TRB3 protein in fat tissue were 10-20 percent skinnier than normal mice. "Even when we put them on a high-fat diet, these mice just didn't gain any weight," says Qi. "Their physical activity was the same, but they were constantly b...

New MRI technique shows emphysema in asymptomatic smokers

...sema is a chronic, progressive lung disease, which permanently damages the air sacs in the lungs. As the size of the air sacs (or "airspaces") increase, cavities form in the lung tissue, hindering oxygen delivery.
