Herpes virus hijacks DNA repair process

...other molecules to activate different processes or transmit signals. Genetic comparisons with several human herpes viruses revealed kinases similar to orf36 in the human viruses. Scientists then took a similar kinase from human Epstein-Barr virus and showed that introducing it into cells also activated the DN...

Revealed -- Mosquito genes that could be controlling the spread of killer viruses

...and why, for example, some types of mosquitoes can transmit a particular human pathogen while others cannot. If those that cannot have evolved an effective immune system that fights off the pathogen, we may be able to use this knowledge to enhance specific reactions of the immune systems in other mosquitoes t...

Role of noise in neurons

...d ion channels. Axons use action potential (AP) to transmit information fast 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 perfo...

Newborn neurons like to hang with the 'in' crowd

...tamate, a chemical released by neurons in order to transmit information to neighboring cells. Whenever the receptor picks up a glutamate signal it is stimulated and relays the signal. For young neurons that signal means survival. As a matter of fact, only about half of all newly born neurons manage to succ...

Signal-processing algorithms provide automated detection, tracking, and classification of moving objects such as swimmers. The SDSN is already available commercially for wide-scale deployment (2pEA1). Two papers presented by ...

Penn study on olfactory nerve cells shows why we smell better when we sniff

... olfactory neurons respond to odor molecules, they transmit chemical energy into electrical signals, which then trigger a secondary molecular messenger cascade that generates electrical impulses to the brain, signaling that it is smelling something. The group discovered that chemical and mechanical stimuli bo...

Scientists sequence genome of parasite responsible for common sexually transmitted infection

Pregnant women with trichomoniasis may deliver a low birthweight (less than five pounds) or premature infant. Although the prescription drugs metronidazole and tinidazole usually cure trichomoniasis, drug resistance has ...

Conceptualizing a cyborg

Scripps Research study reveals new activation mechanism for pain sensing channel

...researchers found that TRPA1, a protein that helps transmit pain signals, is a direct sensor of reactive chemicals. "While many noxious and pungent compounds were known to activate this pain receptor, we discovered that they do so by directly and irreversibly binding to the cysteine amino acids of this prote...
