FDA sees nanotech challenges in every product category it regulates

...es for nanotechnology oversight. If nanotechnology regulation was a baseball game, FDA has scored the first run in the first inning. But the agency must act rapidly to adopt and fully implement the Nanotechnology Task Force’s recommendations. Without moving quickly and building on the recommendations in the Tas...

One species, many genomes

...lular functions such as protein production or gene regulation rarely suffer knockout hits. Genes that are important for the interaction with other organisms, on the other hand, such as those responsible for defense against pathogens or infections, are much more variable than the average gene. "The genetic varia...

Better understanding gene oscillation may provide researchers with clues for developing ways to treat people who overeat because of impaired leptin signaling. Circadian rhythms are biological rhythms that cycle over a period ...

Salk scientists hammer out a pathway that promotes muscle cell survival in mice

...CREB had long been studied for its role in glucose regulation in metabolic tissues like the liver and pancreas, its function in muscle tissue was unknown. Then, the researchers noticed that mice lacking CREB activity in their muscle cells also had a genetic brake, called histone deacetylase (HDAC), stuck in pla...

Chronic fatigue syndrome impairs a person's slow wave activity during sleep

...rmitage, it was only after a "challenge" to sleep regulation was introduced (keeping them awake an extra four hours) that the CFS twins exhibited significantly less SWA power in the first non-REM period of recovery sleep and accumulated a smaller percentage of SWA in the first non-REM period than their twin co...
