A gene's first 'kiss' sets off that affair known as puberty

... to be triggered by the brain's own version of "It takes two to tango," whereby a signal literally gets turned on by a molecule that is produced by a gene aptly named KiSS-1. The couple ?a biochemical equivalent to Adam and Eve ?makes its sudden appearance in a region of the brain called the hypothalamus ...

Sea skate experiment sheds light on human cell transport

...ne and a chemical process known as phosphorylation takes place. This activates the gates, which open to release excess water along with salts and other organic material. The researchers made their discovery by using a plant-based substance to block an enzyme that causes phosphorylation. The result: The ga...

...s going to the roots, but not the chemical form it takes there," Ferrieri said. "We will have to do more tests to see what compounds are formed." Ferrieri believes there may be an increase in compounds that resist microbial attack after plants have soaked up atmospheric carbon dioxide, therefore counterin...

UCSD researchers maintain stem cells without contaminated animal feeder layers

... For a proposed animal-free medium, the UCSD study takes advantage of a previously unidentified soluble factor this is secreted from mouse feeder layers to maintain stem cells' undifferentiated state and pluripotency, the ability to become all tissue types in the body. The scientists knew that a cocktail o...

Scientists reveal molecular secrets of the malaria parasite

...he Science paper is important because: * The study takes an"evolutionary approach" to exploring how the Plasmodium genome hasevolved. By comparing four sequenced genomes (the human malaria P.falciparum and the rodent malarias P. yoelii, P. chabaudi and P.berghei), the scientists found that the major differ...

DNA Recombination and Repair—A New Twist to RecA Function

...ssociate from a fiber in the time—three seconds—it takes for an individual RecA molecule to burn one ATP. This implies a filament organization in which every RecA molecule hydrolyzes ATP in synchrony with the sixth RecA molecule to its left and the sixth RecA molecule to its right. The authors note that t...

The Shapes Of Life: NIGMS Project Yields More Than 1,000 Protein Structures

... many proteins simultaneously, cutting the time it takes to determine a single protein structure from months to days. For example, a robotic arm drops protein solution into thousands of tiny wells for crystallization trials, and an imaging system quickly scans the wells looking for signs of crystal formati...

Bird Brains Show How Trial and Error May Contribute to Learning

...n bird song by manipulating this region. Learning takes some time, so Kao expected to wait for her results. But stimulating the LMAN had an immediate impact. The tune and rhythm of the basic song did not change, but a tiny burst of electricity would show up a few notes later as a change in volume or pitch...

Scientists discover that host cell lipids facilitate bacterial movement

...ell and begin the cycle anew. Essentially Listeria takes over or hijacks the host cell's actin cytoskeleton to move within cells, and to spread from cell to cell." In most cells, two membrane lipids, PIP2 and PIP3, are associated with the formation of new actin filaments. PIP3 is synthesized from PIP2 by ...

Polymersomes, which were developed by Penn professors Daniel A. Hammer and Dennis Discher in the mid-1990s, function much like the bilayered...

Potential treatments for neurofibromatosis

...ot enough neurofibromin is produced, cell division takes off and tumors develop. "It's like an engine being driven at full speed," said Dr. Clapp. To encourage development of the blood vessels they need, the tumors emit chemical signals that cause the mast cells to congregate in tissues surrounding the t...
