Ocean scientists assess impact of seismic pulses in effort to protect whales

...n Act in 1972, ships operating in U.S. waters must adhere to increasingly strict guidelines, in order to minimize impacts on whales and other animals. This includes the gradual ramping up of a seismic array over 30 to 60 minutes, to warn whales and give them time to leave the area. The National Marine Fishe...

New model explains why costly insect 'outbreaks' hard to predict

...ists have sought models that explain why outbreaks adhere to such consistent timetables. But, while the populations of 18 of the insect species that produce outbreaks do seem to follow a cycle, Dwyer's team found some surprising data when they looked more closely. "Earlier models assume that outbre...

Why some diabetics are at greater risk for UTIs

... E. coli's ability to cause UTIs is its ability to adhere in the bladder. The researchers found that insulin along with glucose in concentrations similar to what are found in the urine of type-2 and gestational diabetics increases E. coli's adherence. This enhanced binding may begin to explain why these t...

Fox Chase Cancer Center research reveals how COX-2 causes ovarian cancer

These growing masses are then thought to divide with the help of "chaperones," cellular proteins that aid in protein folding and transport, resulting in smaller prion particles called propagons. The propagons are then ...

New approach limits damage after heart attack and improves survival, say Scripps Research scientists

Purdue research suggests 'nanotubes' could make better brain probes

... astrocytes can't make scar tissue unless they can adhere to the probe," Webster said. "Fewer astrocytes adhering to the nanotubes means less scar tissue will be produced." The Purdue researchers pressed numerous nanofibers together to form discs and placed them in petri plates. Then the petri plates were...
