Protein offers way to stop microscopic parasites in their tracks

...ists 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 invasion by malaria and other...

Hydrogen and methane provide raw energy for life at 'Lost City'

...bs across the nation will have access to satellite transmissions during the journey. Although nobody has yet found another field like Lost City, Kelley says she's 100 percent sure others exist because there are so many other places mantle rock has been thrust up through the seafloor, exposing it to seawater and s...

FSU biologists describe key role of signal-transcribing gene during cell cycle

... said Deng. The researchers traced the journey of transmissions originating from Notch ?? which carries information gleaned from other cells ?? following the signals down the Notch pathway as Cut linked them to the control of cell proliferation in the egg chambers, which they observed at different stages. When C...

Carnegie Mellon U. transforms DNA microarrays with standard Internet communications tool

...rnet protocol that checks errors made during email transmissions has now inspired a revolutionary method to transform DNA microarray analysis, a common technology used to understand gene activation. The new method, which blends experiment and computation, strengthens DNA microarray analysis, according to its Carne...

Ritalin packs punch by elevating norepinephrine, suppressing nerve signal transmissions

...elp focus attention while suppressing nerve signal transmissions in the sensory pathways to make it easier to block out extraneous stimuli, a Philadelphia research team has found. Their report in the Journal of Neurophysiology helps explain how a stimulant aids people with attention deficit and hyperactivity diso...

Control measures fail to stop spread of new H5N1 virus

...wide epidemic). Moreover, the increasing number of transmissions from birds to humans in the past year supports this opinion, said Robert G. Webster, Ph.D., a co-author of the PNAS paper. Webster is a member of the Infectious Diseases department and holder of the Rose Marie Thomas Chair at St. Jude. Based on th...

Household transmission of SARS: Lessons learned

...ues studied the characteristics of these household transmissions and report on risk factors that contributed to the spread of infection. Primary risk factors for transmission fall into 3 areas: the duration of time spent in the home by the index case (first case) after becoming ill, poor hand hygiene and poor use ...

Role of noise in neurons

...t and reliably to synapses, but the reliability of transmissions down fibers of less than 0.5 ìm in diameter was unknown until this paper. Using detailed models of rodent and squid axons and stochastic simulations, the authors performed experiments, now published in PLoS Computational Biology, which took severa...
