Learning to fight an adversary that won't stay down

...these pathogens are at adapting to anything we can throw at them. Innovations such as highly efficient polymerase chain reaction (PCR) have made it possible to identify and study the many genes responsible for antibiotic resistance in hospitals and the environment. "What has been found is that there are m...

Protein offers way to stop microscopic parasites in their tracks

Scientists may have found a way to throw a wrench in the transmissions of several speed demons of the parasite world. Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and Harvard University have identified a protein that could help them develop drugs to stop or slow cell...

Malaria mechanism revealed

...es researchers to design very specific wrenches to throw into the works. The EBA-175 protein and others related to it appear to be unique to Plasmodium, so they are excellent drug and vaccine targets," says Joshua-Tor. Joshua-Tor, Tolia, and Sim were joined in the study by Eric Enemark of Cold Spring Harb...

Plankton can run, but can't hide from basking sharks

...er times reversing this behaviour in an attempt to throw some of their predators (eg fish larvae and predatory invertebrates such as arrow worms) off their trail.

'Sinkers' provide missing piece in deep-sea puzzle

...m of the sediment trap, which they would typically throw out, assuming it was contamination." To estimate how much carbon these sinkers might be delivering to the seafloor, Robison first needed to find out how common they were. For ten years (from 1994-2003), he and his research team had been conducting m...

World-first technology enables study of ancient bacteria

...eepest organisms on Earth this research might also throw light on the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle by finding out more about the behaviour of the mysterious hydrates. One theory now suggests that when the covering of "methane ice" which exists over much of the seabed of the Bermuda Triangle becomes uns...

Newly recognized gene mutation may reduce seeds, resurrect plants

...t Environmental Stress Physiology. "When I went to throw it away, I noticed it had small shoots coming up as if it had returned to life." The surprising finding in studying the mutant was that a single gene could affect so many diverse traits, Jenks said. Another somewhat similar mutant Arabidopsis showed...

Plant gene related to cancer treatment may foster new oncology drugs

...e proteins that determine whether cells take up or throw off different molecules, such as cancer drugs," Murphy said. In the Plant Journal study, Murphy and his collaborators at the University of Zurich showed for first time that PGP1, a P-glycoprotein from the commonly used experimental plant Arabidopsis...

Ancient DNA provides clues to the evolution of social behavior

...t for dealing with whatever the environment has to throw at you. If you have only a couple of tools, you don't have a lot of resilience for dealing with an unexpected event.'' According to Chan, the evolution of the colonial tuco-tuco's social behavior may be linked to the population bottleneck. Because a...

Researchers test new way to quit smoking

... conventional wisdom is that people trying to quit throw away their cigarettes and immediately replace them with a nicotine substitute, such as nicotine patches or chewing gum. But some recent small-scale studies have suggested that the earlier use of a nicotine substitute might improve the chances of a p...

Creating a window on 'oceans in motion'

...ntists and technical experts at the meeting aim to throw open a large, vivid new global window on marine life by expanding worldwide the work of two pioneering North America-based programs that follow the movements of important species using electronic tags. Convening at Dalhousie University, Halifax, the...

Brain region linked to fly slumber

...erved. So studying the mushroom bodies may help to throw light on the mechanisms governing vertebrate and invertebrate sleep. In addition to Allada, other authors on the Nature paper are Jena L. Pitman (co-first author), Jermaine J. McGill and Kevin P. Keegan, all from Northwestern University. ...

Ghost protein leaves fresh tracks in the cell

...Dubreuil reworked his hypothesis. "We decided to throw out our assumptions and start fresh," he said. A laboratory fly was genetically engineered so that spectrin could no longer bind to ankyrin -- which, Dubreuil assumed, meant that spectrin should no longer attach to the membrane. "We thought that ...

On the golf tee or pitcher's mound, brain dooms motion to inconsistency

A potential application of the research, Shenoy says, could come in future efforts to achieve new kinds of computing by building artificial circuits modeled on the brain. But Shenoy says the research simply set out to explain variabilit...

New dyslexia theory blames 'noise'

...uggles to read because even small distractions can throw it off, according to a new model of dyslexia emerging from a group of recent studies. The studies contradict an influential, 30-year-old theory that blamed dyslexia on a neural deficit in processing the fast sounds of language. Instead, the studi...
