St. Jude study solves mystery of mammalian ears

...th mammals and non-mammals to swing back and forth quickly in a steady rhythm. In mammals, the rod-shaped body of the outer hair cell contracts and then vibrates in response to the sound waves, amplifying the sound.

...le to change quickly) or stable – depending on how quickly they break down and convert into carbon dioxide," he said. "Labile carbon like crop residue, mulch and compost is likely to last two or three years, while stable carbon like agrichar will last up to hundreds of years. "This is significant for f...

Hormone helps mice 'hibernate,' survive starvation

...ng mice without PPAR-alpha become hypoglycemic and quickly die. In analyzing the molecular impact of PPAR-alpha in mice, the researchers found that it stimulates production of FGF21, a member of a hormone family that has been shown to lower blood glucose levels in diabetic and obese mice. FGF21, in tur...

Largest synthetic gene ever built offers insights into anti-malarial drug resistance

...oquine (CQ), a synthetic version of quinine, which quickly became the treatment of choice because it was inexpensive − now seven cents a dose − and needs no refrigeration. The drug works by preventing heme crystallization, which destroys the parasite by building up toxic levels of non crystalline heme. ...

Breakthrough developments in rheumatoid arthritis reported

...n. “We have the tools to get at these genes rather quickly now,” he said. “The more patients and controls that we have, the more power we will have to pull out new genes and make associations.” In another major breakthrough, scientists have discovered the importance of a substance called citrulline as ...

Researchers examine carbon capture and storage to combat global warming

... that we can take fossil fuels out of the mix very quickly is unrealistic. We're reliant on fossil fuels, and a good pathway is to find ways to use them that don't create a problem for the climate.'' Carbon capture has the potential to reduce more than 90 percent of an individual plant's carbon emissions,...

Genome of Clostridium botulinum reveals the background to world's deadliest toxin

...hich are serious human infections. The host can be quickly overpowered and, in some cases, killed by the toxin, and C. botulinum has a new food source. "Although in the same group as Clostridium difficile — the Cdiff superbug — C. botulinum has a genome that is remarkable because it is so stable," commen...

Moths mimic sounds to survive

...l as the sounds made by the bats. All the bats quickly learned to avoid the noxious moths first offered to them, associating the warning sounds with bad taste. They then avoided a second sound-producing species even though it was not chemically protected. This is similar to the way birds avoid butterfli...

Smallpox outbreak: How long would it take for vaccines to protect people? Would it work?

"We know that t...

Nitric oxide: Key to cardiovascular and pulmonary function and drug effectiveness

...cellular signals. Once activated the receptors are quickly turned-off by an enzyme called a G protein-coupled receptor kinase. This process is called desensitization and can limit the effectiveness of many drugs, such as opiates for pain and adrenaline for asthma, and is further associated with numerous dise...
