Scratch no more: Gene for itch sensation discovered

...ching for a better anti-itch remedy" Your wish may soon be granted now that scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have identified the first gene for the itch sensation in the central nervous system. The discovery could rapidly lead to new treatments directly targeting itchine...

Skimmed milk -- Straight from the cow

Herds of cows producing skimmed milk could soon be roaming our pastures, reports Cath O’Driscoll in Chemistry & Industry, the magazine of the SCI. Scientists in New Zealand have discovered that some cows have genes that give them a natural ability to produce skimmed milk and plan to use this ...

For many insects, winter survival is in the genes

...e heat-shock proteins that are turned on almost as soon as the temperature dips. Until this new study, researchers knew of only two such proteins that were activated in flesh flies during cooler weather. "Insects need heat-shock proteins in order to survive," said David Denlinger, the study's lead auth...

A cherry on top: Tart cherries may alter heart/diabetes factors

...e a similar impact in humans, but a U-M team will soon launch a small clinical trial to start to find out. Meanwhile, additional research is being carried out in animals prone to both obesity and diabetes. The study's lead author is E. Mitchell Seymour, M.S., a U-M research associate and supervisor o...

'Personality-gene' makes songbirds curious

...They tested the exploratory behaviour of each bird soon after it left the nest (Early Exploratory Behaviour, EEB), as follows. In one behavioural test, the biologists measured the time until a bird had visited four artificial "trees" (see figure 1) after being released in the observation room. In a second...

...ine ?it does the chemistry I want it to do ?but as soon as it gets away from the turned-on electrode the reaction that inactivates it needs to take over." With an overall strategy in place, Moeller and his collaborators are working to expand the scope of reactions that can be done. For example, they hav...

Peramivir protects mice from lethal H5N1 infection

...us to the brain. "Peramivir should be given as soon as H5N1 infection is suspected, since onset of symptoms in infected humans can be delayed," said David A. Boltz, Ph.D., a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Robert G. Webster in the Infectious Diseases department at St. Jude. "The drug could al...

An ancient bathtub ring of mammoth fossils

...etons found at lower elevations were likely buried soon after death-by-torrent, a hard to imagine wall of water a half-mile high spanning the doomed creature’s entire field of vision and approaching as fast as 60 miles an hour. Some fragments may have come from full skeletons churned up and redistributed ...

Genome sequencing reveals key to viable ethanol production

...nce thought too difficult to turn into ethanol—may soon be fodder for hungry, gene-tweaked bacteria. The findings in today’s Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences may empower scientists to engineer ethanol-producing super-organisms that can make clean-burning fuel from the nation’s one billion u...

Sandia researchers take new approach to studying how cells respond to pathogens

... new technologies and methods," Singh says. "We'll soon be working with other cell types, though, like white blood cells directly isolated from human patients. Our approach is designed to be flexible enough to handle many different cell types, and it also minimizes the number of cells needed for analysis,...
