Potential for enhanced sequestration of carbon in soils supports evaluations

...romising" techniques for mitigating global warming caused by the greenhouse effect. According to Post's team, agriculturally based options for reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by increasing sequestration of carbon in soils "should be evaluated to see how competitive they are in comparison with a variet...

Genetic mutations linked to the practice of burning coal in homes in China

... to both p53 and K-ras are thought to be primarily caused by chemicals called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons that are emitted during the burning of smoky coal. The study found that 15 individuals, or 16.3 percent, tested positive for genetic mutations 13 individuals tested positive for p53 mutations, one...

Climate change plus human pressure caused large mammal extinctions in late Pleistocene

...war that shows slow or no progress, is that humans caused extinction through long-term habitat alteration. Barnosky and his colleagues found sparse evidence outside Australia that humans were the sole cause of extinction. Data are sketchy for the Australian continent, Barnosky cautioned, but little climate ...

"Just a few weeks before we went on our research cruise, other teams in the area reported seeing few if any fishing boats in the...

Chemical derived from vitamin-E shows early promise as cancer drug

...ng the cancer cells' ability to divide, alpha-TEA caused the cancer cells to shrink and die through a process called apoptosis compared to untreated breast cancer cells. "One reason that alpha-TEA is such a potent anti-cancer agent is that it impacts on numerous anti-growth and pro-death cellular pr...

Tracing genes, biologists show lizard migration is traced to Florida

...on tens of years versus up to millions. That has caused speculation that a new species or two is evolving from the genetic card shuffling occurring in Florida. "These lizards have become a grand experiment,' Kolbe said, referring to a long series of studies that Losos and Larson have performed on...

New sequence involved in DNA replication timing may aid in cancer detection

...copies produced a partial effect, and three copies caused replication to occur in late S phase. The researchers confirmed this finding by removing the LCSs from a late-replicating origin to convert it to an early-replicating origin. "Interestingly," noted Huberman, "in many cancer cells, the normal order of...

Pollutant causes delayed flowering in plants

Such biochemical pathways are networks of protein enzymes that make up the signaling machinery that controls the flowering process. "While our work is very much at a very detailed molecular level, I would bet that these findings ha...

"Kids are often misdiagnosed with cerebral palsy but what distinguishes A-T is it gets worse," said Campbell. "Sadly, many of the people with A-T end up in wheelchairs and most die young (I t...

Study explores gene transfer to modify underlying course of Alzheimer's disease

... or the use of skin cells. Alzheimer's disease is caused by brain degeneration and is marked by the death of cells, particularly the cells (cholinergic neurons) in the basal forebrain. These cells are the primary source of the brain chemical messenger (neurotransmitter) called acetylcholine. Alzheimer's di...

During polymerization reactions, the authors observed a pronounced pause, followed by an abrupt increase in polymerization rate. Since the length of the pause showed...

Genes expose secrets of sex on the side
