Fire ant-attacking fly spreading rapidly in Texas

...and his colleagues are looking at the fire ant-fly relationship in parts of Argentina that are similar to habitats in Texas. "It is rewarding to see the first species expanding over more than four million acres of Texas," says Gilbert, "but we've failed miserably in parts of Texas, like South Texas, to which th...

New path from estrogen to survival in breast cancer cells described

...how that this protein, by itself, doesn't have any relationship to the cancer, but when modified by the protein NEDD8, can act like a tumor suppressor. The researchers also found that SIRT1, a key protein involved in this molecular pathway, is a member of a family of proteins responsible for prolonging life spa...

Study suggests evolutionary link between diet, brain size in orangutans

...dge, this is the first such study to demonstrate a relationship between relative brain size and resource quality at this microevolutionary level in primates," they said. Such a change would provide support for what Taylor called the "expensive tissue" hypothesis. "Compared to other tissues, brain tissue is meta...
