Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...te that iron. It's beginning to look like the same thing may be happening in the ocean," Wells explains. In July, by the time Wells and his colleagues arrived at their appointed location in the northwestern Pacific, the Japanese team had already injected iron into the water and were monitoring the growing ...

Purdue proves concept of using nano-materials for drug discovery

...eloping synthetic cell membranes to mimic the real thing and then plan to use those membranes to create chips containing up to 1 million test chambers. Each chamber would be covered with a membrane containing the proteins, and the chambers could then be used to search for drugs that deactivate the pumps, L...

Ice core 'dipstick' indicates West Antarctic ice has thinned less than believed

...overed with floating glacier ice. "Then the whole thing spreads out like oil on water," Waddington said. The West Antarctic Ice Sheet once rested on the bottom of the bay all the way to its "grounding line" at the continental margin in the Ross Sea. However, that ice has retreated substantially in the la...

Asthma gene clusters identified

The amazing thing was that the gene expression profiles were consistent across patients, despite the likely differences with respect to the cause of asthma," she said.

Much work remains to be done, "but the concept of using immobilized copper ions is what we're putting a lot of thought into these days," said Meyerhoff.

Nanoscale Diagnostic Sets Sights on Alzheimer's

Transgenic plants remove more selenium from polluted soil than wild plants, new tests show

...emediation can help clean up the selenium, but the thing that's holding people up from using plants more widely is that, by and large, they work slowly," said Terry. "So what we want to do is take a plant like Indian mustard, because it can grow quickly -- up to six to seven feet tall -- and it is tolerant...

Scientists journey to southern Africa to unravel the secret world of elephant communication

...back a female call, and the male would do the same thing the elephants were doing: He would freeze, then press down on his legs, go forward a little bit, then freeze again. It was just so fascinating to me, and it's what got me to think maybe there's something else going on other than acoustic communicatio...

Cooperation is key—a new way of looking at MicroRNA and how it controls gene expression

...within the nuclei of cells we call our genes. One thing that has become clear in the last several decades, however, is that while our genes contribute to human health and disease, it is not always the genes themselves that matter, but rather how the genes are controlled that makes a difference. The regula...

The researcher would also like to sample the soil where the runoff eventually leaves the wetland to see if salt is building up there. ...

At the dawn of the 20th century, bacterial infections accounted for several of the leading causes of death in the United States. But then came the antibioti...

Pair of cancer genes found to drive both cell migration and division

...nd his team learned that PTEN and PI3K do the same thing to PIP3 in dividing cells. When a normal cell prepares to divide, it first doubles its genetic material, and then creates a "furrow" down the middle, cutting the cell in half. The research team noticed that the two halves of a normal dividing cell lo...

One thing they learned is that with low environmental levels of organic compounds, as is likely to be the case on Mars, the microfluidic channels in the capillary disks don't get clogged as readily as they do when used to test samples in Berkeley with its high...
