However, this idea remains highly controversial in scientific circles given the very limited understanding of these unique systems, says Wells. Wells specializes in chemical oceanography and has worked in places as vari...

Neuronal 'traffic jam' marks early Alzheimer's disease

... pathology they observed in the mice and humans by reducing the levels of a key transport protein, kinesin-1, the cell's principal molecular motor for transporting proteins. "We made a modest reduction in the level of a motor protein called kinesin-1 in the mice, and we got a considerable increase in plaque p...

Same mutation aided evolution in many fish species, Stanford study finds

...r genes cause problems for the fish in addition to reducing the number of armor plates, Kingsley said. Most of these fish evolved independently from marine ancestors that are covered head to hind fin in body armor. Although it's not clear why losing the armor is a benefit to freshwater fish, Kingsley noted t...

An entropy-based gene selection method for cancer classification using microarray data

Results The present study identifies a subset of features by maximizing the relevance and minimizing the redundancy of the selected genes. A merit called "uncertainty" is employed to measure the relevance and the red...

Opposing fat metabolism pathways triggered by a single gene

...reases expression of another gene fat-7, which, by reducing acs-2, increases fat content. In its function, nhr-49 resembles a mammalian NHR, called peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs). Further investigation of this link may lead to better understanding of the functions of PPARs and provide opp...

Kinovate Life Sciences Launches Nittophase?High Performance Solid Support For Oligonucleatide Synthesis

Protein offers way to stop microscopic parasites in their tracks

...off at the back or they will jam the belt, greatly reducing the parasite's ability to move and thereby infect a host. A postdoctoral researcher in Sibley's lab, Fabien Brossier, Ph.D., decided to try to use the recently completed Toxoplasma genome to search for the protein that lets the parasite detach glue ...

How the environment could be damaging men's reproductive health

... 51 of the 68 children (75%) who were followed up, reducing the overall rate of the condition from 5.7% to 1.4%. Dr Niels Jorgensen, one of the authors, said the study was significant because existing data on male reproductive health in Lithuania showed that the incidence of testicular cancer was one of the ...

Drug-resistant bacteria on poultry products differ by brand
