UT Southwestern researchers create molecule that nudges nerve stem cells to mature

DALLAS June 15, 2008 Inspired by a chance discovery during another experiment, researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have created a small molecule that stimulates nerve stem cells to begin maturing into nerve cells in culture. This finding might someday allow a person's own nerve stem...

Novel laboratory technique nudges genes into activity

A new technique that employs RNA, a tiny chemical cousin of DNA, to turn on genes could lead to therapeutics for conditions in which nudging a gene awake would help alleviate disease, researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center say.

Music is the engine of new U-M lab-on-a-chip device

...The resonance cavities amplify those notes and the sound waves push air through a hole in the resonance cavity to their assigned channel. The air then nudges the droplets in the microfluidic device along. "Each resonance cavity on the device is designed to amplify a specific tone and turn it into a usef...

Leptin's long-distance call to the pancreas

... curtail insulin release directly. But there's also a back-door route that researchers are still trying to piece together. Scientists knew that leptin nudges osteoblasts, cells known for building bone but that also manufacture osteocalcin, a protein that stimulates insulin release. Hinoi et al. tested wheth...

Genetic surprise confirms neglected 70-year-old evolutionary hypothesis

...ochester biologist H. Allen Orr. Crossbreeding the flies proved tricky because a few million years of evolution separated the species, but after a few nudges the flies produced what Masly was looking for--a sterile male. This is when Dobzhansky's 70-year-old hypothesis nearly died for good. The reigni...
