Plants, too, have ways to manage freeloaders

...m between plants and bacteria, such as the classic relationship between legumes and nitrogen-fixing bacteria. As legumes such as the lupine sprout, they send out roots that encounter nitrogen-fixing bacteria in the soil. The bacteria infect the roots and stimulate them to form nodules. Nodule cells then engulf th...

Scientists crack code for motor neuron wiring

... from these experiments was a code -- an organized relationship between Hox proteins, their chromosomal organization, and the differentiation and connectivity of motor neuron pools," he said. Jessell said this code appears to govern three levels of motor neuron organization: the columnar organization that ensure...

Stress substantially slows human body's ability to heal

...a new study has shown. Moreover, if the couple's relationship is routinely hostile toward each other, the delay in that healing process can be even doubled. The results of this study have major financial implications for medical centers and health care insurers. The new study, reported in the current issue of...

Yale scientists decipher 'wiring pattern' of cell signaling networks

... , these researchers focused on the expression and relationship between proteins of the yeast cell "proteome," or the proteins that are active in a cell. Protein kinases act as regulator switches and modify their target proteins by adding a phosphate group to them. This process, called "phosphorylation," result...

Marsupial genome reveals insights into mammalian evolution

...data supporting the idea that there was an ancient relationship between the MHC and another critical component of the immune system, the natural killer complex (NKC), which contains natural killer (NK) cell receptor loci. This "immune supercomplex," which no longer exists in modern genomes, performed the MHC fun...

HIV accessory protein disables host immunity via receptor-protein intermediary

Dr. Yolton found a relationship between cotinine levels and increases in acting out; increases in holding things in, often manifested by anxiety and depression; increases in behavior problems as rated by parents, and behavior and school problems as rated by teachers; and, decreases...

'Virus chip' detects new virus in prostate tumors

...unclear, and more study is needed to determine the relationship between the virus and cancer, if any, the scientists say.

Cortex matures faster in youth with highest IQ

...average (83-108). The researchers found that the relationship between cortex thickness and IQ varied with age, particularly in the prefrontal cortex, seat of abstract reasoning, planning, and other "executive" functions. The smartest 7-year-olds tended to start out with a relatively thinner cortex that thickene...

Minimal genome should be twice the size, study shows

... Wigglesworthia live inside insects in a symbiotic relationship where they provide essential molecules for their hosts in return for essential basic foods. Since evolving from E.coli, the Buchnera and Wigglesworthia genomes have lost some of the genes that they would otherwise need for survival. Using computer ...

Carnegie Mellon scientists show brain uses optimal code for sound

...ts are represented only in terms of their temporal relationship with each other. That's because the intensity and basic frequency of a given feature are essentially "kernalized," or compressed mathematically, into a single spike. This is similar to a player piano roll that can reproduce any song by recording what...

Alcoholism, smoking and genetics among Plains American Indians

"In societies where regular, daily drinking is the norm, such as in Europe, anxious Met individuals may be more vulnerable to alcoholism through using alcohol as a coping mechanism. In societies whe...

Hyena mothers give their cubs a helpful dose of hormones
