Gray wolves maintain the food chain in winter

...ter trends and model wolves' impact on the fate of resident scavengers faced with a changing climate. Their models show that wolf kills temper the potentially devastating effects of climate-related carrion shortages on scavengers. Unlike mountain lions and grizzly bears, wolves abandon their prey (usually elk...

Study reveals new technique for fingerprinting environmental samples

...ithout having to know the actual identities of the resident microbes. This finding is crucial for studies of microbes in the wild since the sheer number of different organisms present in nearly all environments makes it a daunting task to sequence the multitude of organisms one at a time. With the EGT approac...

Aggressive aquatic species invading Great Lakes

New cell transplantation technique restores insulin production in diabetics

...o-author Saravanan Krishnamoorthy, M.D., radiology resident at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. "This is a safe method of cell transplantation that could potentially become a same-day procedure." In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. This typically results from the destruction of ...

In creating the protected area, the Republic of Kiribati took a significant step toward meeting protected area commitments for 2010/12 under the Conven...

Weizmann Institute suggests that immune cells help to maintain cognition and brain cell renewal

...n but instead, recruit the help of the brain's own resident immune cells to safely fight off any outflow of toxic substances from damaged nerve tissues. In the present study, the scientists showed that the same immune cells may also be key players in the body's maintenance of the normal healthy brain. Their...

New antimicrobial compound adheres to skin to promote healing

Petroleum-based ointments are commonly used in treating skin infections, but Capomacchia said that petroleum can be toxic and inhibit healing,"Using a petroleum product would be like pouring motor oil into the wound," he sa...

A clue from macaques yields evidence for impaired retroviral defense genes in humans

...s that are related to now-extinct viruses that are resident in the human genome. Previous studies had suggested that relatively few evolutionary changes in the TRIM5 protein were responsible for this difference in battling retroviral infection. This prompted the Malik and Emerman groups to screen human popu...

Invasive exotic plants helped by natural enemies

...ing to us because, on most continents, many of the resident herbivores have been hunted to extinction by early settlers, often times to make room for their own domesticated and feral herbivores from the old world," said Parker. He also noted that this radical shift in herbivore composition may favor exotic p...

Scientists force viruses to evolve as better delivery vehicles for gene therapy

...ated virus, or AAV, is a common, though innocuous, resident of the body that has received a lot of attention in recent years as a possible carrier for genes in gene therapy. Because as many as 90 percent of people already have the virus, however, their immune systems are primed with antibodies to quickly tack...

UCLA paper examines how one disease may prevent another

U of MN uses robotic surgery techniques in cardiac cell therapy research

... Ott, M.D., co-leader of this study, now a surgery resident at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, pointed out, "Currently these types of cell therapies, in which stem cells are injected into damaged hearts, are only available to people who are enrolled in clinical research trials."
