Plants, animals share molecular growth mechanisms

...t is specific to plants. We'd like to know if this section is important and whether it regulates DIS3 or the whole WAVE complex." For growth and development biochemical processes to proceed normally, activators such as ARP 2/3 are needed to trigger actin filaments' formation and growth, Szymanski said. Howe...

Research advances quest for HIV-1 vaccine

...0 with a peptide fragment that is identical to the section of gp41 that the antibody recognizes. The researchers identified the specific amino acids on gp41 that 4E10 interacts with and the 3D structure adopted by these amino acids. These study results suggest that 4E10 interacts with gp41 at a conserved reg...

Ice core 'dipstick' indicates West Antarctic ice has thinned less than believed

... was used as a sort of dipstick to show that a key section of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet probably never contained as much ice as scientists originally thought it did. That means it couldn't have contributed as much to the higher sea level. In an area called Siple Dome, the ice sheet currently rises 1,000 ...

New Breast Cancer Test Could Save Lives

...breast tissue, and therefore can reach a far wider section of women than X-ray mammography can. Women below 50 in particular will benefit from this new test, which is much more reliable than X-rays at detecting cancer in this age group. The test is also a much more comfortable procedure than X-rays since it...

Bird Brains Show How Trial and Error May Contribute to Learning

Chromosome Deletion Predicts Aggressive Neuroblastoma

When genes are deleted on a particular section of chromosome 11, the result is an aggressive form of the childhood cancer neuroblastoma. A new study suggests that detecting this genetic deletion during the initial evaluation of children with neuroblastoma may indicate to physicians that they shou...

Road salt affects mitigation wetlands

The water goes to only one of the six constructed wetlands and eventually runs downhill through woodlands. Silver is monito...

Confocal imaging promises early detection of skin cancer

...nal. “Confocal microscopy allows you to optically section through objects,?says Dr Sheblee. “It’s like a biopsy without the painful physical cuts and resulting scars, looking at layers slice by slice.?The technology has been around for 50 years, but only recently been used in the life sciences area. Becaus...

MUHC researchers make cancer target breakthrough

...by creating antisense--an exact opposite of a tiny section of the MTHFR gene. "MTHFR is involved in the synthesis of methionine--a critical nutrient necessary for growth of cancer cells," explains Dr. Rima Rozen, principal investigator of the new study, and Deputy Scientific Director of the MUHC Research Ins...

Brain May Be Less Plastic Than Hoped
