Researchers shed light on mechanism of action used by anti-cancer drug

...uced in the ER stress response, and which helps to resolve stresses associated with increased protein loads. The net effect of these actions was to induce a shutdown of protein synthesis accompanied by a dramatic increase in cell death. “The notion that sorafenib acts by inhibiting protein synthesis and ...

Study shows lizard moms dress their children for success

...xtra dose of estradiol from the mother can help to resolve this problem. In one pathway, females increased the amount of estradiol to their eggs when their mate had a yellow throat.

CT scan reveals ancient long-necked gliding reptile

...appendages because smaller bones were difficult to resolve due to the size of the specimen." The specimens were scanned at a resolution of about one tenth of a millimeter or less. The researchers could determine that the feet were curved, indicating that the reptiles probably lived in trees. The reso...

Marine phytoplankton changes form to protect itself from different predators

...nd its food role is small. While this paper won’t resolve the dispute, Hay believes it shows that both points of view could be correct – depending on which form the organism has taken. “It depends on the environmental context, which we are appreciating more and more in ecology and in biomedical research,...

Reconstructing the biology of extinct species: A new approach

...OMNI-X high-resolution x-ray CT scanner, which can resolve features approximately 1/100 the size of those detected by medical CT scanners.

To answer this question, the researchers applied the independent race model to existing data from experiments that monitored brain activity in monkeys while they were performing a visual stop signal task. In those experiments, the m...

Prehistoric mystery organism verified as giant fungus

...ngton, D.C., have produced new evidence to finally resolve the mysterious identity of what they regard as one of the weirdest organisms that ever lived. Their chemical analysis indicates that the organism was a fungus, the scientists report in the May issue of the journal of Geology, published by the Geolog...
