Researchers discover structure of Nature's 'circuit breaker'

... past work has revealed many new details about the architecture and inner workings of potassium channels -- the voltage-sensing mechanism remained a frustrating mystery. "The general principle was understood that the electric field on the membrane somehow moved 'gating charges' on the channel that would somehow o...

Pathogenic yeasts and fungi: A growing health concern

...oval of SSD1 changed the composition and cell wall architecture of the yeast cell surface. The mutant yeast also evoked a more powerful response from immune cells. As a result, the researchers suggest, the immune system's macrophage cells may have misrecognized the yeasts and overreacted, provoking an imbalance i...

Benefits of lung surgery reported for emphysema patients

...emphysema, breathing becomes difficult as the fine architecture of the lung is destroyed, leading to large holes in the lung, obstructed airways and trapping of air because of reduced elasticity of the lungs. According to the NIH, emphysema costs more than $2.5 billion in annual health care expenses and causes o...

Pevzner and Tesler also hope to drill down deeper into the genomic data, to analyze how their fragile breakage theory works when looking at smaller blocks of genetic letters. "It's not like looking at a magazine,...

Birth control for brain neurons

...leagues disrupted Arnt in keratinocytes. While the architecture of the stratum corneum in Arnt/ mice was found to be similar to that in control mice, the permeability barrier function and the composition of ceramides were significantly different. In particular, 4-desaturated and 4-hydroxylated ceramide species we...

Stop to smell the flowers - But do it before they're pollinated

..." Dudareva suggests that differences in the floral architecture of petunias and snapdragons may account for the different mechanisms these plants use to shut down scent production, but she has not yet investigated this topic experimentally. "The differences could have to do with floral arrangement on the differen...

Microscopes provide new view for tissue engineering

Researchers seek to clone 'mad cow disease' resistant cattle strain

...ested in creating an animal that lacks the genomic architecture to code for the production of normal prions. "In order to be susceptible to prion disease, the individual has to be able to express the prion," says Eyestone, who is using the same somatic cell transfer technology to clone a cow without normal prions...
