Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...swered is why the diatoms showed signs of nutrient stress before the iron and other nutrients were used up. Wells and his colleagues think they may know. For clues, they have looked to a discipline that is far removed from the sea. Soil contains lots of iron, but most of it stays locked up in minerals, as ...

Researchers discover molecule that causes secondary stroke

...on between elevated BOXes, bilirubin and oxidative stress in this study, she says, was "striking." The researchers point out that although their findings are encouraging in terms of developing a diagnostic test and treatment, the number of patients in their study was small and more work is needed to confir...

Research Using Mouse Models Reveals A Novel Key Player In The Initiation Of Colon Cancer

...h Familial Adenomatous Polyposis, or environmental stress that generates a spontaneous mutation in the APC gene, mutations in the Foxl1 gene or its targets may dramatically increase the likelihood that the second normal copy of the APC gene is lost or mutated, leading to the initiation of tumor formation. ...

Special Imaging Study Shows Failing Hearts Are 'Energy Starved'

Researchers at the University of Colorado at Boulder have reported that rats who experienced a one-time infection as newborns didn't learn as well as adult rats who were not infected as pups, after their immunity was challenged....

Live fast, die young true for forests too

...ost attention so far has been given to things that stress forests, like increased drought," said USGS scientist Phil van Mantgem, the study's co-author. "Less attention has been given to the consequences of changes that can increase forest vigor or productivity, like increased rainfall." Environmental cha...

Multi-purpose protein regulates new protein synthesis and immune cell development

... "All these things disrupt protein folding and put stress on the cell. By doing so, they activate the UPR." Several years ago, Kaufman and his research colleagues discovered that IRE1 triggers the unfolded protein response by splicing a segment of messenger RNA called XBP1. This leads to production of a ne...

The genome-wide patented probe configuration described in the patent is the basis for the microarrays in ExonHit's SpliceArray product line launched earlier this year. The genome profiling marke...

Study reveals new technique for fingerprinting environmental samples

...gerprints can be used to reveal environments under stress as well as signal progress in remediating contaminated environments. This may well develop environmental ecology into a fully quantitative science." Dubbed Environmental Genomic Tags, or EGTs, these indicators capture a DNA profile of a particular n...

Shift of weather patterns necessitates rethinking of reforestation methods

Putting ecology back into river restoration

Palmer et al stress that restoration success should not be viewed as an all-or-nothing, single endpoint, but as an adaptive process where small improvements build up and lessons are learned from any failures. The third criteria for successful river restoration is to cr...

Signs of aging: Scientists evaluate genes associated with longevity
