Amphibians in losing race with environmental change

...the journal BioScience. "We know that there are various causes for amphibian population declines, including UV-B light exposure, habitat loss, pesticide pollution, infections and other issues," said Andrew Blaustein, a professor of zoology at OSU and one of the world's leading experts on amphibian decline...

Students invent protective pouch to enhance cell therapy

... a pending patent, to track the microcapsules with various imaging technologies. They and researchers elsewhere have struggled, however, to keep these encapsulated cells alive within the body, mainly because the cells often situate themselves where they do not have access to a plentiful blood supply. To a...

Latent memory of cells comes to life

...ed nucleosomes. Importantly, nucleosomes can carry various chemical modifications that either allow, or prevent, the expression of the DNA wrapped around them. Every time a cell divides into new cells, its double-stranded DNA splits into two single strands, which then each produce a new double-strand. Nu...

Newly identified mechanism for silencing genes points to possible anti-cancer strategies

This randomness, however, isn't problematic, but a necessary function for survival. Until now, the role of randomness in sustaining life has been a great and unsolv...

Jefferson scientists find rabies-based vaccine could be effective against HIV

... then challenged the animals with SIV and measured various parameters of infection, such as immune system CD4 cell count, amount of virus in the bloodstream and immune system antibody response. They found that those animals that were given the test vaccine could control the infection. The control animals wit...

Scientists identify molecular cause for one form of deafness
