"We study these nematodes -- which are actually insect killers -- not only to understand how diverse they are, but also to use them as biological control alternatives," says Patricia Stock, a nematomologist in the University of Arizona Coll...

New protein vital for immune response is found in surprise location

...n a host organism's cells, eventually developing a symbiotic relationship with host cells. Now that mitochondria are an integral part of our cells, Dr. Chen speculated that mitochondria may have acquired new functions by serving as a sentinel to detect invading pathogens and other stressful signals, ensuring t...

Deep sea buffet for bone-devouring worms

...ext by considering that the Osedax worms and their symbiotic bacteria can turn-over a large amount of organic carbon (one whale carcass may weigh up to 50 tons), approximately 2000 years faster than the usual mechanism of carbon deposition to the deep seafloor. The results of this study will aid understanding...

Researchers find how some antibiotics kill bacteria

...; and even some parasitic worms by eliminating the symbiotic bacteria parasites depend on. "It's the kind of drug the pharmaceutical business wants to produce," Artsimovitch said. "They're looking for the broadest range of antibiotics possible. Rifamycins would be ideal drugs if we could figure out how to get...

The whitening coral may die with subsequent impacts on the reef ecosystem, and thus fisheries, regional tourism and coastal protection. Co...

Plants, too, have ways to manage freeloaders

...that are not. The finding illustrates the complex symbiotic relationships that have evolved between organisms, ranging from one-sided parasitism to mutualism, a situation in which both parties benefit. It also suggests that agricultural practices, including heavy use of nitrogen fertilizer, could disrupt the...

Understanding the oceans microbes is key to the Earth's future

Hot-spring bacteria flip a metabolic switch

...tions to this dilemma. For example, plants rely on symbiotic N2-fixing bacteria that live in their roots, far away from the photosynthetic leaves. A different type of cyanobacteria grows in multicellular strands and makes specialized N2-fixing cells called heterocysts that are walled off from the photosyntheti...

Minimal genome should be twice the size, study shows

...chnera and Wigglesworthia live inside insects in a symbiotic relationship where they provide essential molecules for their hosts in return for essential basic foods. Since evolving from E.coli, the Buchnera and Wigglesworthia genomes have lost some of the genes that they would otherwise need for survival. Us...

Tiny polyps gorge themselves to survive coral bleaching

...triggers a bleaching event. Once that happens, the symbiotic algae and the brown or green photosynthetic pigments inside are lost. The result is a "bleached" white coral. "In most cases, corals get 100 percent of their daily metabolic energy needs from the algae. Once they are gone, the coral polyp is left w...

Invasive species harms native hardwoods by killing soil fungus
