Two chemicals boost immune cells' ability to fight HIV without gene therapy

...otective functions. The massive amount of division prematurely shortens these cells' ends, or telomeres, ultimately exhausting the immune system. UCLA's previous research shows that telomerase rejuvenates the telomeres and allows the immune cells to remain youthful and active as they replicate under HIV's attac...

Study of energy and health in Africa focuses spotlight on charcoal and forest management

... million people, primarily women and children, die prematurely each year worldwide (400,000 in sub-Saharan Africa) from respiratory diseases caused by the pollution from such fires, according to previous studies by the researchers. The current study, published in the April 1 issue of the journal Science, conclu...

A whole lot of shaking goin' on triggers early hatching in red-eyed tree frogs

...e pattern of white noise caused more eggs to hatch prematurely than did the rain-like white noise. "These experiments don't rule out the possibility that the frog eggs use other cues," she says. "But clearly, differences in temporal patterns are enough to affect the perception of how dangerous a disturbance is."...

For the current study, they created a second strain of mutant mice in which the Klotho gene generated more of the protein than in normal mice. Those mice lived between 19 percent to 31 percent longer than normal mice. The res...

Number Of Babies Born Prematurely Nears Historic Half Million Mark In U.S.

...cent of all babies -- 499,008 infants -- were born prematurely (less than 37 weeks gestation) in 2003, according to the report released by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). That's up from 12.1 percent (or about 480,000 babies) in 2002 -- and an increase of more than 30 percent since the governmen...

GM crop that holds on to its seeds offers higher yields

...s it difficult for farmers to rotate crops because prematurely released seeds can germinate and become weeds. Researchers, led by Lars Østergaard from the University of California at San Diego, United States, created genetically modified (GM) Indian mustard whose seedpods will not open naturally. They did this ...

While many congenital defects can be safely repaired after birth, Fauza's goal is to fix tracheal defects in utero. Once the baby is born, tracheal surgery requires that the baby be intubated and ventilated long after the opera...

Womb needed for proper brain development

The brains of babies born very prematurely do not develop as well as those who are carried to full-term, according to new research presented today at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Washington, D.C. Dr. Sandra Witelson, a professor of psychiatry and behavioural neurosci...

After a few months completely normal flowers are formed. It is also shown that the poplar FT gene is turned off in late summer just before the trees stop growing...
