Pesticides choke pathway for nature to produce nitrogen for crops

... According to years of research both in the test tube and, now, with real plants, a team of scientists reports that artificial chemicals in pesticides – through application or exposure to crops through runoff – disrupt natural nitrogen-fixing communications between crops and soil bacteria. The disruptio...

Studies force new view on biology of flavonoids

...h flavonoids in particular, what goes on in a test tube is not what’s happening in the human body." Research has now proven that flavonoids are poorly absorbed by the body, usually less than five percent, and most of what does get absorbed into the blood stream is rapidly metabolized in the intestines ...

Two years after the suicide attempt, she was given zolpidem for a bout of insomnia; 20 minutes later, she was able to communicate to her family, eat by herself, and move. These effect...

New molecular pathway could reveal how cells stick together

...w she plans to find how ninjurin affects breathing tube development, as well as the role it plays in immunity. "The immune system is all about immune cells circulating around and being able to attach to tissues that need their attention," she said. A new signaling pathway holds promise of new therapeut...

Stem cell transplants explored at Stanford as a possible treatment for hearing loss

...s possible to coax embryonic stem cells in a test tube to differentiate into hair cells - and then also to have the stem cells differentiate after transplantation in the ears of chicken embryos. The two different approaches - new drugs and stem cell transplants - are important because drug treatmen...

Mechanical 'artificial hearts' can remove need for heart transplant by returning heart to normal

...pump then pumps the oxygen rich blood into another tube which is connected to the aorta. Once blood is in the aorta, it can be transported to the rest of the body. Patients were treated with drugs which encourage reverse remodelling of the heart, prevent atrophy and prevent the heart from shrinking bey...

U of M researchers invent 'flashy' new process to turn soy oil, glucose into hydrogen

...roplets from an automotive fuel injector through a tube onto a ceramic disk made of a catalyst material--the elements rhodium and cerium--that guides the breakup of the feedstock molecules toward the production of syngas and away from water and carbon "gunk."

Ocean seep mollusks may share evolutionary history with other deep-sea creatures

...onous brew for most species, animals such as giant tube worms and the mollusks studied by Kiel and Little thrive with the help of the symbiotic bacteria. "If you can become adapted to living at these sites, you can make a very good living indeed," Little said. The origins and age of seep citizens such as...

Motorola researchers develop selective sensors based on carbon nanotubes

But without the peptides, it would not recognize specific compounds." "The potential for the carbon nanotubes is extraordinary," Forzani ad...

New research to cut animal testing

Enzyme shreds Alzheimer's protein

...ay a role in late-onset sporadic AD. Their test tube studies showed that CatB biochemically degrades Aß by snipping one end of the protein, called the C-terminal end. What's more, the enzyme also degrades the long strings of Aß that form amyloid plaque, they found. Finally, they found that increasing...

... this is the colonscope, a long, thin and flexible tube that causes patients great discomfort and pain. For this reason, researchers have been trying to develop alternative medical devices, such as, for example, a small robot that moves independently through the intestinal tract. There is a layer of slime...

Researchers find protein that silences genes

...n specificities they observed for HDA6 in the test tube fit with the changes in acetylation that occur on ribosomal RNA genes in living cells. They also found that the mechanism behind the silencing involves both modifications of histones and changes in DNA methylation, and that HDA6 affects both. Cir...
