Researchers discover chemical compounds that affect plant growth

...as chemical genomics, to identify those that could positively or negatively affect gravity's effect on plant growth, which is closely linked to the movement of proteins through plant cell membranes, a process known as endomembrane trafficking. "Well-characterized bioactive chemicals and their targets identifie...

Engineers improve plastic's potential for use in implants by linking it to biological material

...e charge, which in T59 appeared to be drawn to the positively charged surface of the polypyrrole the way magnets of opposite charges cling together. Yet other peptides containing aspartic acid didn't attach to polypyrrole, leading the researchers to speculate that something contributed by the other amino acids ...

Beetle-inspired switch uses water for bonding

...electricity from electrodes. The electricity moves positively charged atoms, called ions, in the water through the minute capillaries of a thin disk of porous glass embedded in the plate. The water moves and wells up into a micrometer-sized droplet on the plate surface. The exposed droplet can then stick to ano...

Bird samples from Mongolia confirmed as H5N1 avian flu

...United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has positively identified the pathogenic form of avian flu--H5N1--in samples taken from birds last week in Mongolia by field veterinarians from the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). It is the first instance of this viral strain occurring in wild migratory birds ...

Human brain is still evolving

...ke guesses, but our study doesn't reveal how these positively selected variants arrived," he said. "They may have arisen in Europe or the Middle East and spread more readily east and west due to human migrations, as opposed to south to Africa because of geographic barriers. Or, they could have arisen in Africa,...

Potential heart benefit found in stem cells

... the number of bone-marrow stem cells injected was positively related to the follow-up EF levels, and negatively correlated to the stress-induced and resting perfusion defects. "In at-risk patients, combined treatment with bone-marrow derived stem cells may offer an effective alternative to improving cardiac...

Researchers use mass spectrometry to detect norovirus particles

...onging to the viral coat protein, the virus can be positively identified by matching the results to entries in genetic databases. In the Hopkins study, the researchers analyzed a stool sample treated with virus-like particles, which closely resemble norovirus but are noninfectious. Using mass spectrometry, the...

Markers of gene, protein, or micro-RNA activity predict outcome in prostate and colorectal cancers

...te genes to further analyze. Ten of the genes were positively correlated to cancer progression, and six were negatively correlated, she said, and when tested, the combination generated a gene expression score that provided a better predictor of relapse than the Gleason score. "This gene expression score appears...

Properly selected, the PEM coating convinces the neuronal cells that they're in a good environment to attach, develop and produce the characteristic neuron pro...

Fatty spheres loaded with siRNA shrink ovarian cancer tumors in preclinical trial

...charge. Its neutrality provides an advantage over positively or negatively charged liposomes when it comes to binding with and penetrating cells. The next step for the FAK siRNA-DOPC liposome is toxicity testing. "So far it appears to be very well-tolerated," Sood says. "We hope to develop this approach for...
