Bound for destruction: Ubiquitination protects against improper Notch signaling

...ncodes a receptor protein that extendsthrough both sides of the cell membrane and which is capable ofinteracting with a ligand partner, such as the protein Delta, presentedon the surface of a neighboring cell.

New Clues Add 40,000 Years to Age of Human Species

...Omo II—were once entombed in sediments on opposite sides of the Omo River in southern Ethiopia. By applying modern radiometric dating techniques and a careful study of sediments and fossils, the researchers linked the Omo hominids, true Homo sapiens, to a single period in time. “Some have considered Omo...

Researchers trace evolution to relatively simple genetic changes

...armor plates. And that puts the plates back on the sides of the fish," Kingsley said. "So, this is one of the first cases in vertebrates where it's been possible to track down the genetic mechanism that controls a dramatic change in skeletal pattern, a change that occurs naturally in the wild," he noted. ...

Second, the defibrillator "shocks" the heart back into normal rhythm whenever the heart beats irregularly. In addition to maintaining the hear...

Brain May Be Less Plastic Than Hoped

Each section of the retina corresponds to a specific location in the primary visual cortex. Without any visual signal to interpret, the cortical a...

An (ecological) origin of species for tropical reef fish

Wrasses collected only 360 km apart along the Brazilian coast were genetically more distinct than were fish collected 4200 km...

A probe, not an echo

... transmitter and receiver, are mounted on opposite sides of a drum that spins as it rises around the object (which is suspended in water), creating a stack of tomographic image slices which visualization algorithms turn into 3D images. In the first set of experiments using the HUTT system, the Marmarelis ...

Pair of cancer genes found to drive both cell migration and division

...like migrating cells - PIP3 levels are high on the sides that represent the 'fronts' of what will be two new cells, and they are low at the furrow, or what amounts to the back of the new cells," says Devreotes. In their experiments, cells without PTEN and PI3K couldn't regulate levels of PIP3, and they di...

Vitamin A's paradoxical role in influencing symmetry during embryonic development revealed

...depending on whether they are on the left or right sides of the embryo. The action of retinoic acid makes sure that some of those cells ignore the left-right instructions and progress symmetrically. Belmonte compares the node to a doorway. "Before embryonic stem cells enter the node, they don't have an or...

Researchers identify new catfish family

Gene loss accelerates aging

We suspect that having the right amount of the p63 protein in the right cells at the right time creates a balance that enables organisms to live relatively...

Columbia scientists develop cancer terminator viruses

Results found that treating the tumors on just one side of the animal with very few injections of this modified virus not only cured the injected tumors, but also resulted in the destruction of the tumors on the opposite si...

Female butterflies go for sparkle -- not size -- when choosing to mate
