Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...the [embryonic stem cells] to change step by step, where each step has different conditions and a strict window of time," says Zhang. "Otherwise, it just won't work." To differentiate into a functional spinal motor neuron, the stem cells advanced through a series of mini-stages, each requiring a unique gr...

...atterns along equivalent chromosomal regions, even where the underlying DNA sequences are different. Bernstein and Schreiber began to develop the analytical techniques several years earlier, working with the smaller yeast genome. To investigate the much larger human genome, they collaborated with Affymetr...

Adding Radiation Therapy To Chemotherapy Improves Survival In Patients With High-risk Breast Cancer

...hose from other groups, confirm that in situations where residual disease remains, adjuvant chemotherapy alone in high-risk breast cancer patients is suboptimal and that the addition of locoregional radiation therapy is important to achieve the highest cure rate," the authors write. In an editorial, Timot...

Molecular biology fills gaps in knowledge of bat evolution

.... "The present work advances our understanding of where bats originated, when they diversified and how different bat families are related to each other," Springer said. "It also quantifies the fraction of the fossil record that is missing for bats." The team, using DNA sequencing, analyzed data from port...

UAB scientists discover the origin of a mysterious physical force

...his mysterious force in detail and have discovered where its origins lie. In the same way that a flag flutters in the direction the wind is blowing, at a microscopic level water molecules are gently attracted towards the direction in which an electric field is pointing. However, when the water is in conta...

Researchers discover way to make cells in the eye sensitive to light

...initis pigmentosa is a form ofhereditary blindness where the rods and cones are destroyed, but therest of the eye and retina remains intact. By switching on themelanopsin it could be possible to restore the eyes ability to respondto light.Although making cells in the eye responsive to light is not a cure f...

Quantum Dots Research Leads to New Knowledge about Protein Binding in Plants

"A better understanding of the interactionof SCA...

"Bacteria are just like us. They like to betogether, they like to be attached to a surface and they li...

New, automated tool successfully classifies and relates proteins in unprecedented way

Neuronal 'traffic jam' marks early Alzheimer's disease

...s disease -- or in disorders such as Down syndrome where beta-APP is overexpressed -- those defects cause early failure in cellular transport," he said. "And those failures then stimulate further production of A-beta peptide, which may further poison the machinery." Goldstein theorized that Alzheimer's di...

Antarctic ice shelf retreats happened before

The gradual removal of this ice shelf may be causing the glaciers inland to flow faster, wh...

Newly-discovered class of genes determines ?and restricts ?stem cell fate

...jority of differentiated cells that make up organs where cancers are found. If this theory is correct, resident stem cells in the skin could be the cells that turn into skin cancers like melanoma. Understanding stem cell biology may therefore be important for developing new therapies for cancer. Adult res...

Plants respond similarly to signals from friends, enemies

A similar relationship appeared when Weerasinghe studied the signals between plants and nematodes, even though the nematode ...

The secret to longevity in tubeworms

These chemoautotrophs use energy from hydrocarbons to reduce sulfate to sulfide, which L. luymesi absorbs through its unique "roots," extensions of its body that it tunnels into the sediments. However, current measurements of sulfide ...
