Research Using Mouse Models Reveals A Novel Key Player In The Initiation Of Colon Cancer

...man colon cancers and develop tumor growths called polyps in their colons, eventually leading to death. Inactivating the APC gene was found, as in human cells, to cause the accumulation of a protein called beta-catenin in the nuclei of these cells. Kaestner's group had earlier published research on a trans...

Health of coral reefs detected from orbit

The whitening coral may die with subsequent impacts on the reef ecosystem, and thus fisheries, regional tourism and coastal protection. Coral bleaching is linked to sea temperatures above n...

Corals switch skeleton material as seawater changes

...reted by generation after generation of tiny coral polyps over sometimes millions of years of coral growth in the same location. The team showed that corals can switch from using aragonite to another mineral, calcite, in making the calcium carbonate. They make that switch in response to decreases in the rat...

Report warns about carbon dioxide threats to marine life

Many calcifying organisms--including marine plankton such as pteropods, a planktonic marine snail--are affected by the chemistry changes. Shelled pteropods are an important food source for salmon, mackerel, herring, and cod. If calcifying...

Ocean sampling yields environmental sources of coral symbionts

...r, it has remained unclear how newly settled coral polyps acquire their symbionts in the ocean. Organisms that resemble coral symbionts—dinoflagellates that are similar to those of the Symbiodinium genus that grow within corals—have been isolated from both sand and the water column; however, neither the loc...

Scientists identify a gene that may suppress colorectal cancer

... gene, the incidence of small intestinal and colon polyps were reduced by about 90%. “This gene may give us a novel target to aid in the diagnosis, prevention, and/or treatment of cancer,?says Dr. Arthur Buchberg, one of the co-senior authors on the report. The gene is called Atp5a1 , and encodes an es...
