Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...r aggregations. They studied the sinking rate, the slow process through which aggregations of diatoms sink into the deep sea, taking their carbon with them. The Kilo Moana returned to Hawaii after spending 42 days at sea. Early results suggest that the struggle for iron may indeed follow something like w...

Recent breakthroughs in common adult leukemia highlighted in New England Journal of Medicine

...mature white blood cells that didn't die, with the slow rise in leukemia cell count seen in patients due to an accumulation of these immature and incompetent white blood cells. Scientists have since discovered that CLL cells do indeed turn over, with the accumulation over time a result of the difference i...

Inexpensive, mass-produced genes core of synthetic biology advances at UH

...o. It'll open tons ofresearch avenue, speeding the slow (and tedious) process of genecloning, or gene modification (mutations, deletions, etc). Devices the size of a pager now have greater capabilities thancomputers that once occupied an entire room. Similar advances are beingmade in the emerging field of...

New Technique for Tracking Gene Regulators

...their original positions on the genome,but it is a slow and somewhat expensive process. Other methods, such asmatching the pieces to their compliments on microarrays, are limited bythe size of genome they can analyze.Dunn’s team has come up with a technique to determine the positions ofthese 500-to-1,500-...

Research on Worms Yields Clues on Aging

...ing for a "Fontaine de Jouvence" forever; a way to slow orstop aging. While its still nowhere to be found, we are makingprogress; in worms. Researchers found that an epilepsy drug used inhumans had the unexpected effect of prolonging the life span of C.Elegans: A class of anti-seizure medications slows th...

"There are very few vision rehabilitative options for patients with retinal degenerative diseases, so the opportunity to be part of evaluating an experiment...

Yale Scientists Find MicroRNA Regulates Ras Cancer Gene

...ne therapy with let-7 may be a way to alleviate or slow it down." This work arose from Slack's basic research in the department of molecular, cellular and developmental biology on the nematode round worms, C. elegans. He found that these worms require let-7 RNA for normal development to occur. Without it...

Circles Of DNA Might Help Predict Success Of Stem Cell Transplantation

Grosveld's group previously identified TEL2 and noted its similarity to TEL1, which prompted them to investigate whether TEL2 al...

Scientists discover that host cell lipids facilitate bacterial movement

The trees adjust to the resulting reduction in photosynthesis by diverting less of the sugar and other carbohydrates that they make to wood production. This finding ...

Protein offers way to stop microscopic parasites in their tracks
