Glow-in-the-dark zebrafish at UH hold keys to biological clocks

.... "Ultimately, this type of research can help with tracing why humans develop such things as sleep disorders or mental illnesses like depression." Per3 is the naturally occurring clock-regulated gene. The protein that it encodes is produced at highest levels near dawn, and when the luc gene is inserted into...

...nature. Rapid detection and isolation of patients, tracing and management of their close contacts, infection control in hospitals and protective clothing for staff work to interrupt chains of transmission and thus seal off opportunities for further spread. Such straightforward measures are complicated by th...

Survey finds silver contamination in North Pacific waters

...United States, and this may be a valuable tool for tracing those emissions, both in the atmosphere and in the water," she said. Prevailing westerly winds carry atmospheric pollution across the North Pacific ocean from China, where coal is the primary fuel and the use of emissions controls is limited. Major ...

Analysis of flower genes reveals the fate of an ancient gene duplication

...haped the evolution of today's living species, but tracing the evolution of a specific single gene over millions of years of evolution--and over potentially several gene-duplication events--can pose a significant challenge. One way in which this can be overcome is for researchers studying a particular modern...

'Underground' tunnels discovered as means for communication between immune system cells

...may be conceivable to follow the entire pathway by tracing the network of tunneling nanotubules," said Dr. Salter. The authors' discovery builds on their recent research showing how dendritic cells respond to stimuli, but, as they freely admit in this paper, it was due in large part to an accidental observa...

Olfactory system detects pheromones that control reproduction

...omonal cues on LHRH release. But because classical tracing techniques could not specifically identify the connection of neuronal subsets, they ended up tracing the routes of groups of undefined neuronal populations clustered around LHRH producing neurons, Dula...

UCSD biologists find new evidence for one-way evolution

By tracing the 30-million year history of variation in a gene found in plants such as tomatoes and tobacco, biologists at the University of California, San Diego have found new evidence to support an old idea -- that some evolutionary changes are irreversible....

Utah researchers confirm chromosome may harbor autism gene

...rs at the U School of Medicine made the finding by tracing variations in the DNA of an extended Utah family that has a high occurrence of the disorder and whose members are descended from one couple. As part of the study, the researchers also ruled out one gene that appeared to be a good candidate for being...

"We will be tracing the major underlying genetic component of disease-related genes while discovering the biological pathways involved in disease development," Dr. Hakonarson added. "For instance, a specific cholesterol receptor may be dysregulated because of genetics, ...

Viral marker of human migration suspect

A benign virus previously used as a marker in tracing human migration may be unreliable, according to researchers at Penn State. Results of this study also suggest that some viruses might be undergoing much higher rates of evolution than previously thought. "The most genetically divergent human populat...
