Protein fragments sequenced in 68 million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex

...ending support to a recent and still controversial proposal that birds and dinosaurs are evolutionarily related. The HMS and BIDMC researchers, working with scientists at North Carolina State University, report their findings in the April 13 Science. "Most people believe that birds evolved from dinosaurs, bu...

Scientists unlock secret of what makes plants flower

...Plant Breeding Research in Cologne, has led to the proposal that this signal is a protein known as Flowering Locus T Protein (FT protein), which is produced in leaves by the Flowering Locus T gene (FT gene). It travels through the plant's vascular system to the shoot apex, where it activates other genes, caus...

ASU researchers test antibacterial effects of healing clays

...nths of Haydel's arrival, they submitted the grant proposal to the NIH. "I approached this work from the viewpoint of a clinical microbiologist," Haydel says. "I ordered bacterial strains that pharmaceutical companies use to test their antimicrobials." Haydel and Williams tested both of the French clays...

...mmunity back in June 2006, and the response to the proposal has been enthusiastic and sustained. Although PLoS ONE opened its doors to manuscript submissions only in August, it already receives in excess of 100 submissions each month and launches with the publication of 100 peer-reviewed research articles. Th...

Biofuels researcher searches for new sources

...ing increasing energy challenges. President Bush's proposal for additional clean-energy research in his State of the Union Address acknowledged the need for extensive research in biofuel, and the U.S. Department of Energy announced this month an ambitious research agenda for developing cellulosic ethanol.

Genetically altered mice no longer like cocaine

...t trigger a high. They were wrong. This led to the proposal that there may be redundant reward pathways for cocaine reward. "Deleting the dopamine transporter itself caused tremendous changes in the mouse brain," Gu said. "It's possible that, somehow, the animals' brains rewired themselves and, as a result, ...

Researchers win money to develop breath test to detect breast cancer

...nding the technology into applications. The IDEA proposal states that the switchable surfaces have molecularly designed sites that will attract certain metabolites indicative of breast cancer. These sites are actually little nanopockets about 6.4 nm2 in size, that interact with oil and water. The metabolite...

Two NIH initiatives launch intensive efforts to find roots of common diseases

...tt announced on Monday that the President's budget proposal for fiscal year (FY) 2007 includes $68 million for the Genes and Environment Initiative (GEI), a research effort at NIH to combine a type of genetic analysis and environmental technology development to understand the causes of common diseases. The FY...

NHGRI announces new sequencing targets

...the working groups is responsible for developing a proposal for a set of genomes to sequence that would advance knowledge in one of three important scientific areas: to identify areas in genetic research where the application of high-throughput sequencing resources would rapidly lead to significant medical ad...

Illinois pig to make history as source of first complete swine genome

...l and international collaborators by selecting our proposal for funding," Beever said. "After many years of laying the foundation for sequencing of the pig genome, it is truly rewarding to see our dreams of a porcine sequence come true. This sequencing will have tremendous, long-lasting impacts on the continu...

Cholesterol gets 'thumbs up' for role in digit development

...the movement of Sonic hedgehog, a counterintuitive proposal given cholesterol's supposed tethering ability. To try and clear up cholesterol's role in digit patterning and the Sonic hedgehog gradient, Chiang and colleagues created mice with an altered form of the Sonic hedgehog protein to which cholesterol c...

Researchers get neurons and silicon talking

...m hopes to tackle in a future project. Right now a proposal has been prepared which could tackle this and many other problems, including how to communicate with the neurons using genes. "Genes are where memory come from, and without them you have no memory or computation. We want to explore a way to use gene...

New evidence supports century-old theory of cancer spread

...that there is now sufficient evidence for Aichel's proposal to be taken seriously by the research community. Pawelek's group began testing the theory in 1993, when they created hybrids in the lab by fusing mouse melanoma cells with mouse macrophages. "Their behavior was astonishing," said Pawelek. "In cultu...

Johns Hopkins flu expert calls for mandatory vaccination of health care workers

...aking vaccinations a requirement. Perl says her proposal is open to discussion at Hopkins. "Ultimately, we want to make vaccination as mandatory for workers as the law allows in order to effectively accomplish what we cannot enforce," she says. ...

Clinical trial to test stem cell approach for children with brain injury

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Cox's Investigational New Drug (IND) application in September. The UT-Houston CPHS, the university's institutional review board for research projects, approved the project i...

Making plant cells work like miniature factories

...eloping the instrumentation is a large part of the proposal and we're building a special, high-resolution mass spectrometer," Yeung said, "because there's nothing available commercially that meets our needs." He added that the equipment will be housed in the Roy J. Carver Co-Laboratory on the ISU campus. Mas...
