Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...y at sea. Its subsurface pontoon hull give it more stability in choppy seas, a benefit to Wells who normally gets seasick on these voyages. For nine days, she steamed northwest to rendezvous with a research vessel from the University of Tokyo, the Hakuho Maru, carrying a large group of Japanese scientists. Th...

How an AIDS-Related Cancer Unleashes Inflammation

...he cell. Activated MK2 does this by prolonging the stability of cytokine messenger RNA ?the genetic blueprint for cytokine proteins. The longer these messenger RNAs remain in the cell, the more cytokine proteins the cell's protein-making machinery is able to synthesize, said Ganem. The activation of MK2 also ...

Key mechanism in genetic inheritance during cell division identified

...gs that reduced microtubule binding. "Because the stability of a microtubule is thought to be largely governed by the lateral interactions between adjacent protofilaments," the authors note, "rings that bind orthogonally to the microtubule axis are not only expected to strengthen interprotofilament interactio...

NYU, Rockefeller researchers find complexity of regulation by microRNA genes

...ry sites in target messenger RNA to regulate their stability and translation. However, little has been known about the biological function of microRNAs--a process the current study sought to explore. The paper, published in the latest issue of the journal Nature Genetics, found that a microRNA gene regulates,...

The making and breaking of microtubules

...uble-layered, a property that contributes to their stability -- but it also put the brakes on the project for a long time. "The key was to get the tubulin assemblies locked at the correct states suitable for structural analysis, but even more challenging was finding an algorithm to reconstruct the double-laye...

Ships take in water for stability before a voyage and despite preventative measures such as mid-ocean exchange/flushing this 'foreign' water and its contents can find their way into bays and harbours at the destination. The computer model used to track jellyfish movements could answ...

A bug's life: Exceptional genomic stability yet rapid protein evolution in a carpenter ant mutualist

... genome stability," says Wernegreen. "This genomic stability may prevent the reacquisition of those lost functions or the evolution of new ones. In addition, rapid protein evolution seems to degrade the genes that remain." In the future, major areas of research will include understanding the forces driving th...

Chernobyl: The true scale of the accident

... and did not permit gathering complete data on the stability of the damaged unit. Also, some structural parts of the shelter have corroded in the past two decades. The main potential hazard posed by the shelter is the possible collapse of its top structures and the release of radioactive dust. Strengthening t...

Seeing the forest and the trees

...her service a healthy forest provides such as soil stability or fruit production that might arise from a single extinction scenario. "In general, we found that when you have more species, things are more predictable," said Bunker, who was lead author on the study. "It's like having a diversified investment po...

Oyster larvae move in groups and water-borne chemicals stimulate the oysters' settlement; reefs are therefore able to maintain themselves as new recruits settle and grow. "Sustainability is an important component to note as maintenance...

...region, called DR-DQ, where we find this island of stability is one of the most variable in our genome, yet in some people it has been 'fixed'. We suggest that ancestral DR-DQ blocks have been shuffled into different MHC backgrounds and subsequently expanded in frequency across European populations. "These '...
