St. Jude study solves mystery of mammalian ears

...ir cells. The researchers then tested the animals’ responses to sound. Results of the studies showed no alteration in hearing, which suggested that it did not matter whether the outer hair cells contracted or extended itself, that is, raised or lowered the cilia. There was no effect on amplification. The res...

Genomic Analysis Uncovers New Targets for HIV Vaccine

Added Haynes: "CHAVI was designed to do big science, and the results of this analysis represent just the first of what should be many advances. The technology use...

Brain inflammation may be friend, not foe, for Alzheimer's patients

454 sequencing identifies HIV drug resistance at early stage

...ant HIV strains which will lead to better clinical responses in patients.” While treatment of HIV has been largely successful, with dramatic increases in survival over the last decade, a significant number of patients develop drug resistance shortly after treatment is initiated. The collaboration between 45...

Marine phytoplankton changes form to protect itself from different predators

...That’s a pretty dramatic difference.” Defensive responses are often seen in higher plants, but this is believed to be the first report of such a complex and species-specific response in marine phytoplankton. Hay suspects scientists may find other examples of complex defensive strategies when they look more...

In contrast, the whitetail mothers responded only to their own species' call, and only when they...

How brain pacemakers erase diseased messages

...The model's findings closely parallel the clinical responses of patients, who typically experience the greatest relief from symptoms when their devices are tuned by physicians to deliver rapid pulses, Grill said. Patients' symptoms can actually worsen when the devices are dialed to a slower setting. The int...

Salk scientists hammer out a pathway that promotes muscle cell survival in mice

...es off. Learning how this pathway affects cellular responses may provide clues for improving cellular health in diseases affecting muscle and other cell types. "In addition to muscle, this regulatory circuit is present in brain and heart tissue, where it also seems to control cell survival," said Marc Mont...

Scripps research team sheds light on long-sought cold sensation gene

... pain in response to extreme cold, as evidenced by responses similar to wild type mice when exposed to -1° C cold plates. This suggests that other genes are responsible for this facet of cold sensation. Though cold can be unpleasant or painful under certain circumstances, it can also deaden pain, as illustr...
