Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...m cells could be successfully prodded to transform themselves into spinal motor neurons. In addition to the narrow time frame, it was also critical to expose the growing stem cells to an array of complex chemical cocktails. The cocktails constitute naturally secreted chemicals - a mix of growth factors and hor...

UAB scientists discover the origin of a mysterious physical force

...r molecules have a remarkable capacity to organise themselves into complex structures that are strongly orientated in such a way as to cancel out the electric field, and on some occasions, to reverse it. This abnormal behaviour was discovered by the same researchers and published in Physical Review Letters in A...

Study finds more than one-third of human genome regulated by RNA

...MicroRNAs inhibitprotein production by associating themselves with particular messengerRNAs, thereby reducing the amount of protein that's ultimatelyproduced. In this study, the researchers determined which portion ofthe microRNA is most important for this process, and identifiedadditional determinants in the m...

A bacterial genome reveals new targets to combat infectious disease

...e than 150 million people worldwide. The nematodes themselves play host to bacteria that live within their cells, but in this case, the relationship is classic mutualism, with each benefiting from the other. Indeed, the Wolbachia bacterium is so crucial to its host nematode that apparently eradicating it with a...

... on the study. "Otherwise, they can recombine with themselves or with other DNA segments. In the telomeres, such events may accelerate aging or trigger cancer in humans." "We have identified a molecular mechanism to explain how this enzyme helps keep telomeric DNA silenced and potentially protects the genome f...

Experiments provide proof of how traveling in groups protects insects

Now, a trio of insect experts has developed what they believe is strong new evidence that the latter theory is correct. By gluing radio transmitters -- each weighing less than half a gram -- to the backs of ...

UCSD researchers maintain stem cells without contaminated animal feeder layers

...e completely eliminated. However, the petri dishes themselves are coated with laminin (an animal-derived product), and the UCSD team is continuing studies to determine if contamination occurs from this source. For a proposed animal-free medium, the UCSD study takes advantage of a previously unidentified solubl...
