Scratch no more: Gene for itch sensation discovered

...y, scientists regarded itch as just a less intense version of the pain sensation. As a result, research on itching has been somewhat neglected. "Many genes have been identified in the pain pathway," says Chen, associate professor of anesthesiology, psychiatry and molecular biology and pharmacology. "But itch...

Studies to find better ways to preserve human eggs, ovarian tissue under way

...ed in human eggs, says Dr. Emmi, who believes some version of vitrification likely offers a better option for ovarian tissue and eggs. In fact, many in vitro fertilization programs, including the one she directs at MCG Health System, are moving toward vitrification, which also seems to work faster, better an...

Newly discovered antibody may be body's natural defense against Alzheimer's

...entists were able to measure and extract the human version of anti-oligomer antibodies from IVIG and then demonstrate that these antibodies are present in the blood of normal individuals. The basis for the selective recognition of oligomers by these antibodies appears to be their capacity to recognize t...

Survival of the rarest: Fruit flies shed light on the evolution of behavior

...were competing for food, those that did best had a version of the foraging gene that was rarest in a particular population. For example, rovers did better when there were lots of sitters, and sitters did better when there were more rovers. "If you're a rover surrounded by many sitters, then the sitters ar...

Researchers attach genes to minichromosomes in maize

...Science. A minichromosome is an extremely small version of a chromosome, the threadlike linear strand of DNA and associated proteins that carry genes and functions in the transmission of hereditary information. Whereas a chromosome is made of both centromeres and telomeres with much intervening DNA, a min...

As described in the current study, they obtained a single structural scan of hIAPP in less than a second - more than 500 times faster than previously possible. The speed is crucial for trying to understand a dynamic proce...
