T-ray breakthrough could make detecting disease far easier

...tion in other parts of the spectrum, making T-rays potentially important in detecting and analysing chemicals by analysing how they absorb T-rays fired at them. This would allow quality control of prescribed drugs and detection of explosives to be carried out more easily, as many complex molecules have dist...

Gladstone investigators identify a new protective action for the powerful anti-HIV factor, APOBEC3G

...these retro-elements to new chromosomal sites with potentially damaging effect involves copying DNA into RNA and then back into DNA again. The A3G RNA protein complex, Chiu determined, interrupts this retro-element replication cycle by binding the retro-element RNAs and sequestering them in the cytoplasm away fr...

Backache beaten by good vibrations?

...caused by inflammation of lumbar nerve roots could potentially be reduced with the application of TU, a form of electrotherapy commonly used by physiotherapists to accelerate the resolution of the inflammatory process in a multitude of soft-tissue injuries. The study aims to address the unanswered question of wh...

One-of-a-kind imaging probe reveals secrets useful for drug discovery

...a single animal. But this is a way we could obtain potentially important chemical information about disease from small amounts of brain tissue." Scientists used walking stick venom to demonstrate the technique partly because it combined lead researcher Aaron Dossey's passion for studying insects with his formal...

UCSF study will test new vaginal microbicide for herpes and HIV

...ondoms. "The significance of the gel is that it potentially gives the power back to the woman to protect herself against infection," said Anna-Barbara Moscicki, MD, professor of pediatrics at UCSF and lead investigator for the study. The gel is not a contraceptive, but a microbicide. Microbicidal gels or ...

Theory of oscillations may explain biological mysteries

...scillating biological populations can give rise to potentially important effects such as “synchronized chaos? the interaction between two weakly competing consumers of a food resource can be transformed by the arrival of a third competitor to provide unpredictable opportunities for the newcomer to invade. Vander...

Uncovering DNA's 'sweet' secret

...er molecule, RNA,remains one of the greatest - and potentially unsolvable - scientific mysteries. But Vanderbilt biochemist Martin Egli, Ph.D., isn't content to simplystudy these molecules as they are. He wants to know why they are the way they are. "These molecules are the result of evolution," said Egli, p...

Male contraception: One door opens, another closes

...ut of the way, they thought this male "Pill" could potentially be brought to market very quickly. Because of the growing public interest in male contraceptives, researcher Dr. John Amory at the University of Washington, Seattle was able to obtain funding to test the drug's effect in seven healthy men. The res...

Ocean sampling yields environmental sources of coral symbionts

...ing symbioses with new corals. The findings, which potentially bolster future efforts to protect and rehabilitate coral reefs, are reported by a group including Mary Alice Coffroth of the University at Buffalo and appear in the December 5th issue of Current Biology. In response to environmental stresses, cor...

Cities change the songs of birds

...s as a result of such “environmental shaping?could potentially play a crucial role in the process of speciation, although it is not at all clear whether urban and forest populations of great tits are on such a path. Conservation Implications: Adjust or Leave Speciation takes place over long, evolutionar...

Researchers link ocean organisms with increased cloud cover and potential climate change

Atmospheric scientists have reported a new and potentially important mechanism by which chemical emissions fr...erosols, to estimate the amounts of this and other potentially important gases emitted from the ocean, and to better characterize the effort of organics on cloud d...

Recycling technology

There are no viable recovery techniques and no fully safe disposal options. Some 40 million LCD television sets were sold worldw...

Road-crossing in chimpanzees: A risky business

...oward the front of the group when traveling toward potentially unsafe areas, such as waterholes, and bringing up the rear when retreating, but comparable data on great-ape progression orders have been lacking. Crossing of man-made roads, sometimes necessitated by intersection with longstanding chimpanzee travel ...

Intravenous gene therapy protects normal tissue of mice during whole-body radiation

...berger added that intravenous administration could potentially offer wide-reaching protection to the public in the event of a terrorist attack since experts believe a significant number of the population would die within 30 days of receiving a large dose of radiation to the entire body. In the study, mice wer...

Hopkins scientists link immune response to 'ghost' parasites and severely congested sinuses

...ut down the antiparasite immune response, we could potentially have new treatments for these airway diseases of the lung and nose," says Lane. New therapies are needed, he says, as an alternative to long-term steroids, which block the inflammatory chemical pathway but also have debilitating side effects, inclu...

RNA map provides first comprehensive understanding of alternative splicing
