Agent slows aging in mice

.... Miller says prior studies typically have been too small and their results hard to confirm in subsequent studies. “The National Institute on Aging decided to fund grants at three institutions to do studies of this sort in the right way,” he says. In six to 10 months, once all the mice in the cont...

ASU research shows connection between testosterone, dietary antioxidants and bird coloration

Bacteria ferry nanoparticles into cells for early diagnosis, treatment

...orescent molecules into tumors that are ordinarily too small to be detected, said Demir Akin, a research assistant professor of biomedical engineering who specializes in nanomedicine. "These bacteria can potentially deliver specific molecules into a variety of cells," said Akin, the first author of a ...

Exploring the dark matter of the genome

...ure of genomes affects cellular processes. We hear too much about the 'post-genomic era' -- it's underappreciated that we don't understand the genome yet." Celniker agrees. "What we would like to see is a complete sequence of the fruit fly from telomere to telomere" -- that is, from one end of the ch...

In nature, proteins sweep up nanoparticles

...then amass metal nanoparticles into piles that are too large to be swept away by underground currents. Precisely how and why the bacteria undertake this bit of housecleaning remains a mystery, but it suggests that proteins could play a key role in bioremediation strategies designed to trap harmful metals...

Marine phytoplankton changes form to protect itself from different predators

...ng, the best strategy is to form colonies that are too large for those predators to consume. Lead author Jeremy D. Long, along with collaborators Gabriella W. Smalley, Todd Barsby, Jon T. Anderson and Mark Hay found that’s just what Phaeocystis does. Chemicals that signaled attacks from copepods supp...

CU study reveals why starling females cheat

... outside their group if they sense their mates are too genetically similar to themselves. Mating with strangers increases their brood's genetic diversity, even though it does not reap additional help. As yet, it is unknown how females detect the genetic similarities between themselves and their mates, th...

The mouflons of the Kerguelen archipelago

In small isolated populations, related individuals are likely to reproduce amongst themselves, resu...

Male circumcision overstated as prevention tool against AIDS

A program of testing and treatment for prostitutes must be mandatory and those that refuse treatment must be held liable. Many international ...

Scientists close in on missing carbon sink

...cally in the atmosphere. The models tended to move too much carbon dioxide toward ground level in the summer, when growing trees and other plants take in the gas, and not enough carbon dioxide up in the winter. As a result, scientists believed that there was relatively less carbon in the air above mid-la...

St. Jude study shows genes play an unexpected role in their own activation

... model scientists use to explain how CREB works is too simple, said Paul Brindle, Ph.D., associate member of the Department of Biochemistry at St. Jude. Brindle is senior author of a report on this work that appears in the June 20 issue of “The EMBO Journal.” “CREB is like a plumber who turns on the w...

How brain pacemakers erase diseased messages

...action also revealed that stimulation delivered at too slow a pace fails to keep bad information at bay. Indeed, slower pulses can actually add to problematic bursts, they showed. The model's findings closely parallel the clinical responses of patients, who typically experience the greatest relief fro...

An 'elegant' idea proves its worth 25 years later

'Personality-gene' makes songbirds curious

Birds are an easier target for research and indeed, they also have different personalities. An international team of researchers have now found eviden...

But Wallula Gap was too narrow to handle all the massive flow; the water would back up, creating temporary Lake Lewis, then slowly drain through to the Columbia River Gorge—all in a matter of days. Preliminary results place most mammoth finds in the Lake Lewis area at el...

Students invent protective pouch to enhance cell therapy

In lab tests using latex tubing to represent a vein, the students used ultrasound imaging to confirm that fluid can flow smoothly through the mesh and can spread the microcapsules throughout pouch. They...

Molecule that destroys bone also protects it, new research shows

"Developing knowledge about the molecules that contribute to host defense versus pathology is very important fo...
