Climatologists discover deep-sea secret

...st. The waters in the southern hemisphere are less salty than those in the northern hemisphere, and this freshwater in the south sinks to the ocean floor and is transported to the rest of the Atlantic, reducing the salinity of the North Atlantic Ocean and strength of the gulf stream. Nevertheless, the rese...

Bitter or sweet? The same taste bud can tell the difference

...y override CCK during a sweet sensation. Sour and salty ?the two other dominant tastes ?seem to work in totally different ways than sweet and bitter, Herness said. The researchers would eventually like to figure how these work, too, but for now their next step is to apply bitter and sweet stimuli to tast...

UCR environmental scientists propose chemical solution to cleaning California's Salton Sea

... Sea, evaporation will result in the sea being too salty for fish, resulting also in the loss of fish-eating birds frequenting an area that is home also to several endangered bird species and visited by millions of waterfowl every year. Massive fish kills are a common occurrence at the Salton Sea, howeve...

A salty tale: New bacterial genome sequenced from ancient salterns

... reveal the genome of one bacterium at home in the salty Spanish ponds. The bacterium is Salinibacter ruber, a bright red, rod-shaped organism. Several years ago, scientists first isolated S. ruber from saltern crystallizer ponds in Alicante and Mallorca, Spain. Although extreme-loving microbes called arc...

Thin tough skin, slow-growing gills protect larval Antarctic fish

...h as blood in many notothenioids are about half as salty as seawater. While seawater reaches its freezing point at -1.91 degrees Celsius, fish fluids will freeze at about -1 degree Celsius. The water where these species dwell rarely rises above the freezing point and is regularly filled with ice crystals. ...

For some young fish, early gene expression is a clear harbinger of fated lifestyle

... that prepare them for adulthood in open fresh and salty waters. In their innovative work, which is based on studying the gene expression profiles of hundreds of genes at a time in different fish populations, the researchers studied gene expression in two species--strains of the brown trout, Salmo trutta,...

Researchers discover which organs in Antarctic fish produce antifreeze

...rnal fluids in notothenioids are about one-half as salty as seawater. While seawater reaches its freezing point at ?.91 degrees Celsius, fish fluids freeze at about ? degree Celsius. These species dwell in water that rarely rises above the freezing point and is regularly filled with ice crystals. From t...

Scientists solve sour taste proteins

...ns could be responsible for sensing either sour or salty taste. In action, the two proteins combine to form "ion channels," porelike proteins in the membranes of taste cells, Matsunami said. These channels in turn control the flow of calcium ions, or electrically charged forms of calcium, in and out of t...
