Audience pick: Older violin, sweeter music?

...olins apart," Nagyvary said. The whole even is a bit of a scientific experiment that the public will take part in, he said. Violin dealers surely disagree with Nagyvary's well-published assessment that Stradivariwas hardly different from other violin makers of his day. "Stradivary was a good ...

Purdue biologists' spotlight solves mysteries of photosynthesis, metabolism

...rons and protons in the membrane have not. "It's a bit like watching electrons move through a computer chip," Smith said. "A microprocessor has far more complex and numerous routes for its electricity to follow than, say, a flashlight, which only has one. But while a chip uses electrons to flip tiny digi...

Building a better atlas of yeast proteins

... eighty percent expression level we detected was a bit of a surprise. Also, although we had hints that proteins existed at a wide range of abundances, until these measurements were made, there was no way to quantify that range." In addition to identifying many thousands of functional genes, the researche...

Bad Mileage: 98 tons of plants per gallon

...a gallon of gas. In U.S. units, that is equal to a bit more than 196,000 pounds or 98 tons. Dukes made similar calculations for oil, natural gas and coal to determine that it took 44 million billion kilograms (97 million billion pounds) of carbon in ancient plant matter to produce all the fossil fuel u...

Protein-hungry cells 'go fishing,' report Purdue biologists

...or for its own use. "Its method, at first, seems a bit unorthodox," Cramer said. "Colicin essentially has two parts connected to one another by a long rod, and it cannot fit through a single hole in the membrane. So once it finds its first hole, it has to go fishing for another." One of the colicin's hal...

Squirrel invasion sows seeds of change for future forests

...acorns and walnuts, in numerous locations. Being a bit squirrely, gray squirrels seldom remember where they bury every nut. This ensures that some nuts remain in the ground to germinate the following spring. "Scatter hoarding by gray squirrels is important to the germination success of these nuts," Swiha...

Yeast helps researchers better understand Parkinson's mystery

...ee what happens in the cell when we produce just a bit more of this protein than the quality-control system can handle," Outeiro says. "Does the biology of the protein change? Does it simply sit there? Does it cause problems to the cell?" When aSyn was produced at low levels, it made its way to the cell...

Scientists solve puzzle of how kinesin motor molecules walk or limp across cells

...eck is getting over-wound and under-wound a little bit every time it takes a step." Symmetry vs. asymmetry The discovery of the hand-over-hand movement led the researchers to try and tackle another unanswered question: Is there symmetry in the way kinesin walks? "It turns out that there are actually...

'Mad cow' mechanism may be integral to storing memory

"For a while we've known quite a bit about how memory works, but we've had no clear concept of what the key storage device is," says Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research Director Susan Lindquist, who coauthored the study with neurobiologist Eric Kandel at Columbia University. "Th...

Progress in probing the mosquito's sense of smell

Today, we know a little bit more about one of mankind's deadliest enemies, the mosquito. Scientists have taken an important step toward understanding the mosquito's sense of smell, an avenue of research that may lead to better ways to repel the deadly insect. In a joint effort ...

MBL scientists confirm evolutionary exception

These results, consistent with asexual reproduction, eliminate the possibility that bdelloids reproduce sexually and thus confirm that the organism has evolved without sexual reproduction or genetic exchange for tens of mil...

A subspecies of mouse found in Kansas has also been named for Cockrum. The N. cockrumi shrew is among the smallest mammals in Arizona. It weighs only as much ...
