Mule deer moms rescue other fawns

... when coyotes attack fawns, with mule deer mothers responding to both whitetail and mule deer calls, even when their own fawn stood next to them. In contrast, the whitetail mothers responded only to their own species' call, and only when they could not see their own fawn. "The fact that mule deer ran to the...

A frown or a smile? Children with autism can't discern

...hat another person is thinking,?Davies said. “When responding to someone looking straight at you, as compared to someone who’s looking away, the brain discerns a difference. When the other person looks away, the brain quiets down.? For instance, with angry expressions, the brain may quiet down, because when ...

Hives ferment a yeasty brew, attract beetle pest

...ws them to key in on the bee colonies without bees responding to their attack," the researchers report. Complicating the issue is the yeast that grows in the hives. The researchers found that this yeast only produced IPA when it grew on pollen. Even pollen substitute, a food sometimes provided for bees, did no...

LIAI completes world's most comprehensive analysis on influenza virus data

Protein sensor for fatty acid buildup in mitochondria

... Jude team demonstrated that PanK2 does its job of responding to increasing levels of fatty acids within a structure called the mitochondrion. Mitochondria are bags of enzymes in the cell that extract energy from nutrients. Most of the cell's energy-rich molecules called ATP are made in the mitochondria, and th...

Baby fish 'smell their way home'

...ies of fish," Mike says. The fish could also be responding to other stimuli, including distant noise off a reef and the behaviour of other fish, but the team concluded that smell was probably the dominant factor leading the babies home.

The researchers said that in ordinary mice, the white blood cells are suppressed by self-defensive signals coming from the cancer cells and don't attack the cancer. But the mutated ge...

Global changes alter the timing of plant growth, scientists say
