NJIT Presidential Award winner takes stem cell research another step

...ones can be regenerated by the cells. Arinzeh has pushed the basic science of stem cells forward and, with her latest research on bone repair, is taking it yet another step. "Treena has all the earmarks of a technical superstar," says Mike Jaffe, a professor of biomedical engineering and chemistry at NJIT...

NSAID drug protects against intestinal tumors in mice, despite poor diet and gene losses

...not only increased tumor size and number, but also pushed the cancer into an invasive state." Finally, they examined what happened when the knock-out mice were fed a Western diet enhanced with sulindac, an agent they had previously found help suppress tumor formation. To their surprise, none of the knock-o...

Study: Predatory dinosaurs had bird-like pulmonary system

...gas exchange, O'Connor explained, which would have pushed them closer to being warm-blooded creatures. Previous research that pointed to a more crocodilian-like pulmonary system was based on a study of two dinosaur skeletons encased in rock. O'Connor and Claessens have expanded on that research by studying...

New discoveries, however, are showing that one lineage of sauropods diversified at the end of the dinosaur era, University of Michigan paleontologist Jeffrey Wilson says. Wilson...

Cells direct membrane traffic by channel width

...els appear virtually identical. The Beckman teamed pushed glycerol through the channels, calculated the energetics and looked for barriers. "Nature is using a very, very simple idea here," Tajkhorshid said. "Just by making a channel narrower, only water is allowed to pass through the pure water channel; by...

Seal rookeries could provide a reliable food source for endangered California condors, study finds

...hem for their feathers and stealing the eggs. That pushed them right to the brink of extinction until they hardly had any food left." By the 1980s, only two-dozen condors remained in the wild, prompting the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to take the controversial step of rounding up the entire population a...

Study finds drug may cut down involuntary movements

...d in the 1950s to treat psychosis, but was quickly pushed aside by more effective medications. But doctors in the United Kingdom found it to be effective to treat the excessive involuntary movements of Huntington's, and it is approved for use in several nations. In the United States, tetrabenazine is design...

Alan Pounds, the study's lead scientist affiliated with the Tropical Science Center's Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve in Costa Rica. "But climate change is pulling the t...

World Trade Center identifications pushed forensic DNA technology

"We lacked the tools needed to do the job properly or efficiently," Shaler said in his recent book, "Who They Were: Inside the World Trade Center DNA story: The Unprec...

Attacking cancer's sweet tooth is effective strategy against tumors

It is not clear whether they have a lower indidence of cancer. Also appealing is the idea of combining anti-glycolyt...

RNA interference stops colon cancer spread in mice

...studies of siRNAs, but only a handful of labs have pushed it to animal models, which we need to do before going on to clinical trials." To study the effects of siRNAs targeted against the PI3K pathway in mice, the researchers used a well-established technique in which human colorectal cancer cells were imp...

In the process, we collectively discovered an efficient chemical factory in Dicytostelium cells that informs us about ...

Flick of whiskers helps tease out brain's 'shadow' signaling system

... brain cells of mice as their whiskers were gently pushed about with gentle puffs of air. Whiskers make up one of the most important information-gathering mechanisms that many animals have, used in much the same way that people rely on their hands and eyes to learn about their environment. A large part of a...
