Unlocking the genetics and evolution of the dog could prove beneficial for humans

...is one extreme and the dog is another. By working closely with their owners, Lark and his team also realized that it was possible to research the genetics of pet dogs, which was not only less expensive than mice, but also created an ideal model for performing genetic testing in humans. The process follows ...

Department of Energy's Office of Science unveils 20-year vision for the future of basic research

Study demonstrates altered angiogenic proteins in preeclampsia patients

...mptoms. "Our new findings might allow doctors to closely monitor these high-risk patients and identify preeclampsia at an earlier stage," explains co-senior author S. Ananth Karumanchi, MD, of the Renal Division at BIDMC and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School (HMS). Also known as t...

Scientists at Scripps Research Institute describe structure of receptor on surface of 1918 flu virus

The structure that Stevens, Wilson, and their colleagues solved has features primarily found in avian viruses. "It looks more like an avian virus-- with some human characteristics," says Wilson...

More broadly, Gentry's work "has relevance for how we interact with machines and computers," Murray-Smith said. "In a few years, we might not view interacting with computers as a 'command and co...

Portable kidney dialysis machine developed

Researchers say the technology, known as multiscale materials and devices, or MMD, could eventually enable development of a wea...

Scientists report first sequencing of environmental genome

...e the dominant microbes were represented mostly by closely related strains. In more complex environments with more organisms, it may not be so easy. "However, even in more complex environments it should be possible to extend the random shotgun sequencing approach to recover genomes of uncultivated strains an...

Scientists discover where snakes lived when they evolved into limbless creatures

Genomic changes reveal evolution of SARS virus

...g Kong on February 21. The researchers also looked closely at the history of mutations in one gene, the spike protein, thought to be involved in the process the virus uses to enter cells. This gene underwent rapid mutation in the earliest stages of the epidemic, but that rate slowed in the later stages afte...

Rare ant may help solve some mysteries of social evolution

...m a real scientific find. Studying these behaviors closely may give researchers insight into some of the riddles of social evolution. While L. minutissimus is a parasite, it doesn't appear to stage the bloodthirsty coups common to its slave-maker ant relatives. Rather, it behaves much like the unwelcome in-l...

Reward mechanism involved in addiction likely regulates pair bonds between monogamous animals

...e CBN researchers determined that OTR and V1aR are closely located near the nerve fibers that release oxytocin and vasopressin. Lim speculated that their proximity likely facilitates pair bond formation during mating. CBN studies currently underway continue to examine other components of the neural circuit...

Rutgers scientists discover protein in brain affects learning and memory

...etween cypin and dendrite growth. When she looked closely at neurons in the lab, she found cypin only in certain neurons "neurons that tended to be more fuzzy," as she described those with increased dendrites. Stimulating neurons in a dish also produced an increase in the protein overall. This has been ...

Study finds huge variability in vitamin E absorption

...in clearly is absorbed better if it is part of, or closely associated with the digestion of a food that has some fat in it. Vitamin E has been explored in recent years for its potential value in prevention of heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's disease and other health concerns. The results of this study ...

New study finds evolutionary diversification in Hawaiian spiders

Gene may be key to evolution of larger human brain

...these species because they were progressively more closely related to humans," said Lahn. "For example, the closest relatives to humans are chimpanzees, the next closest are gorillas, and the rest go down the ladder to the most primitive." For each species, the researchers identified changes in the ASPM ge...

California pistachio industry threatened by potentially devastating disease

In addition, Michailides also recommends growers remain proactive in their efforts to keep their orchards free from infection of the pathogen by conducting regular ...

Scientist challenges interpretation of new find, the oldest primate fossil ever discovered

...iddle of Eurasia at the time. Now, the presence of closely related Teilhardina species in China and Belgium adds to mounting evidence that primates and other mammals were able to migrate directly between Europe and Asia 55 million years ago. In any event, Dr. Martin hails the new fossil as a very significa...

Can the mode of training affect the hormone response to different modes of exercise?

...: The changes in free testosterone across sessions closely matched the changes in total testosterone. When all subjects were analyzed together, free testosterone was significantly greater during the resting session than during the run or resistance exercise session. As seen with total testosterone, there was...
