A gene's first 'kiss' sets off that affair known as puberty

...r? "Puberty is critical to human development. And while there is a fairly good understanding of how the endocrine system regulates the hormones involved, just how and when the brain activates this process has been a great mystery. An appreciation of puberty's deep-seated neurobiological mechanisms could, ...

Cytoplasm affects the number of vertebrae in carp-goldfish clones

...n carp have 33 to 36 vertebrae in their backbones, while goldfish have 26 to 28. Six of the seven cloned fish had between 26 and 28 vertebrae; one had 31. Although the initial rate of success in producing carp-goldfish clones is low--seven offspring in 501 attempts in this study--the authors believe that ...
