Cellular message movement captured on video

...e they passed fluid across the cells’ surface in a simulation of flowing blood. With that physical stimulus, paxillin consistently moved in the same direction as the fluid flow. Paxillin is found primarily at focal adhesions, busy intersections of activity scattered around the cell’s cytoplasmic membrane. Fo...

Helping chlorine-eating bacteria clean up toxic waste

...rk Sciences (GNS), a firm specializing in computer simulation of biochemical processes, to create computer models of the inner workings of the bacterium. The project is funded by a three-year, $381,000 grant from the Department of Defense, which has some 6,000 toxic-dump sites of its own to clean up. Richard...

Prehistoric origins of stomach ulcers uncovered

...ts combined their genetic analysis with a computer simulation the modelled the spread of the bacteria across the globe. This showed that it migrated from Eastern Africa at almost exactly the same time as early humans, approximately 60,000 years ago. The UK research effort was led by Dr Francois Balloux, a B...

How to manage forests in hurricane impact zones

...ndations for different situations. "Our simple simulation of stem breakage potential suggests that stand spacing and tree height can be manipulated to reduce risk, and provides a start for managing forests for hurricane risk," says Stanturf. "Additional research is needed on the effects on vulnerability of ...

Meeting the ethanol challenge: Scientists use supercomputer to target cellulose bottleneck

...e into sugar molecules. To the scientists, the simulation is like a stop-motion film of a baseball pitcher throwing a curveball. In real-life the process occurs far too quickly to evaluate visually, but by using the supercomputer simulations to break the throw down into a step-by-step process, the scientist...

Gene therapy injected into the brains' of mice with Huntington's disease

...mice also showed diminished hind limb clasping, (a simulation of motor control behavior in HD patients). Perhaps most importantly, gene delivery of GDNF provided neuroprotection in the brain, with reduced density of brain inclusions and less cell death. The authors wrote "Although GDNF's exact role in prevent...
