very complex and I’m not sure we’re covering much as yet. We certainly don’t know all the interactions among these molecules that bring the cell into action.” Examining living cells through a microscope, Chien and the paper’s co-author, associate ...
Agent slows aging in mice

burning question: Will the mice fed NDGA, already well past middle age, live past the normal outer limit of old age" The longest that mice of this type usually live is around 1,000 to 1,100 days. “If NDGA turns out to extend maximal lifespan by 2...

Studies to find better ways to preserve human eggs, ovarian tissue under way
...ursue the potential of egg preservation as well to really
find out which is the best option: ovarian tissue or pure eggs. Also, a better way to preserve eggs – which last about 24 hours outside the body without preservation – would reduce the cost and logistical issues of coordinating donor eggs. “The lo...

don’t know what causes autism, but this research represents a solid starting point,” said Sarah Dunsmore, Ph.D., program director with the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, part of the National Institutes of Health, which partly support...
Study shows lizard moms dress their children for success
...ou know there are genes for these traits, and it's really
hard to tell the maternal effects apart from the effects of the genes," he said. Lancaster began by treating side-blotched lizard eggs with an array of different hormones. That revealed a striking influence of estradiol on back patterns. She also ...

Study investigates 'divorce' among Galapagos seabirds

predicts that the probability of divorce increases with the birds’ success at breeding and raising a chick, because the effort required may tire out the male and consequently his mate may reject him.” It also shows that males of this species are p...

interesting that these genes from Arabidopsis, which is a small plant in the mustard family, have been conserved through 50-100 million years of evolution and can perform more or less the same function in poplar trees,” Strauss said. “The modified tr...

sad why they are writing in a journal, they are not likely to say it’s because they think this is a way to make themselves feel better,” Lieberman said. “People don’t do this to intentionally overcome their negative feelings; it just seems to have th...
Genome of Clostridium botulinum reveals the background to world's deadliest toxin
