Surprising origin of cell's internal highways

...ransport proteins throughout the cell and generate polarized (directional) signal distribution that causes cells to move. While microtubules in some specialized cells can originate from non-centrosomal structures, the centrosome has been considered the main origination point for microtubule "nucleation" in...

Paper challenges 1491 Amazonian population theories

...990s drifted up to 10 million. "We've now got a polarized community," he says. At one end, he says, is Anna Roosevelt of the Field Museum in Chicago (she argues for large populations dispersed throughout Amazonia); at the other is Betty Meggers at Smithsonian (she argues these were very primitive people ...

The connector rotation hypothesis? Phage do not pack their DNA by rotation

...rs functioned, the researchers shone homogeneously polarized light on them and recorded the pattern of fluorescence produced in two channels at right angles to one other. If the connectors had been rotating, they would have seen a sine wave-like fluctuation in intensity in both channels with a phase shift o...

FSU biologists uncover mechanisms that shape cells for better or worse

...on from the sense organs, and intestinal cells are polarized to take up nutrients and move them into the bloodstream," he said. Poulton explained that in order to ensure cell polarity in the Drosophila oocyte, the cells surrounding it activate a classic signaling pathway known as the Epidermal Growth Factor ...

New MRI technique shows emphysema in asymptomatic smokers

.... Dr. Fain believes that this new method of using polarized gases to study lung diseases will provide a clearer picture of the underlying mechanisms of poorly understood conditions like asthma and chronic pulmonary obstructive disease, leading to better treatments. ...

Rare Chinese frogs communicate by means of ultrasonic sound

...lectromagnetic sense in fishes and homing pigeons, polarized light vision in ants, chemical sensing of pheromones in insects and rodents, echolocation by ultrasound in bats and dolphins, are just a few examples. "That frogs can communicate with ultrasound adds to that list and represents a novel finding, beca...

Warming trend may contribute to malaria's rise

...etermine their relative importance. This is a very polarized field, in terms of supporting or not supporting the role of climate versus other factors. We don't want to contribute to the polarization, which I think is very unproductive in terms of the science. I hope we can move from this sort of debate into a ...

DNA Recombination and Repair—A New Twist to RecA Function

...l cases, coherent motion implies a coordinated and polarized use of energy. Now, Julia Cox, Oleg Tsodikov, and Michael Cox present evidence indicating that filaments of the bacterial RecA protein, long known for their role in homologous recombination and DNA repair, have properties reminiscent of a molecular ...

Vital step in cellular migration described by UCSD medical researchers

...d by researchers. In order to move, a cell must be polarized so that the molecular processes at the front end and back end are different, leading only to forward movement. One of the first steps in cell migration is the initiation of activity by Rac that extends protrusions out of the cell. These protrusions s...
