New Clues Add 40,000 Years to Age of Human Species

...team believes the Africa-Mediterranean correlation ties both regions to moister climates long ago, yielding another method to understand climate history in that part of the world. “The correlation between the Kibish deposits and the Mediterranean sapropels not only helps us resolve an anthropological mys...

Scientists collaborate to assess health of global environment

...ts totaling nearly 2,500 pages and focusing on the ties between ecosystems and human well-being. A set of 33 case studies, termed sub-global assessments, also will be released in late 2005 or early 2006. Each case study will focus on a particular area, Mooney said. "This is really important because the g...

Stem cell treatment improves mobility after spinal cord injury

...al stabilization at the acute phase, when rods and ties are placed in the spinal column to restabilize it after injury. Currently, drug treatments are given during the acute phase to help stabilize the injury site, but they provide only a very mild benefit, and they do not foster regeneration of insulatio...

Discovery of T-cell 'traffic control' boosts new drug promise

... trials of the new drugs and neither has financial ties to the companies that manufacture them. Controlling this process with drugs offers "enormous potential" against devastating immune reactions, Goetzl says.

UIC researchers show protein routes messages in nerve cells

...toskeleton," said Featherstone. "This work finally ties the receptors to the cell framework to provide a complete picture." Confirmation of these mechanisms in a mammal such as a mouse or a rat can help researchers understand how nerves need to be reconnected after spinal cord injury, or may open doors t...

War on terror meets war on cancer

...med the government's belief the counterfeiters had ties with terrorists who moved from Eastern Europe to the Middle East. In 2000, the Drug Enforcement Administration began using Ehleringer's method to test thousands of drug samples each year. Slight differences in the nitrogen-15-to-nitrogen-14 ratios h...

Basic work on E. coli identifies two new keys to regulation of bacterial gene expression

... well-studied species in biology and has important ties to the UW-Madison. In his most recent study, Gourse investigated the interaction between RNA polymerase and promoters from the E. coli chromosome. RNA polymerase reads the information in DNA and transcribes it into chains of RNA, which are later tr...

The findings appear in two related papers in the August 18 is...

Single molecule extends fat mice lives by reversing gene pathways associated with disease in obese

...Model The researchers also looked for metabolic ties to resveratrol's impact: pathway changes that mimicked those caused by calorie restriction. They examined AMP-activated kinase (AMPK), a metabolic regulator that promotes insulin sensitivity and fatty acid oxidation. It's been shown in previous work...
