Beware cancer, insomnia and liver disease UH students are taking aim
... "The alpha-1 protease inhibitor 5 gene displayed continuous
expression, allowing us to propose that it is involved in embryonic liver development. By understanding how Prox1 is involved in this, we can better understand how the liver develops normally, and by knowing that, we can pinpoint where developmental...

... network of observing stations. "These would allow continuous
monitoring of the albedo during much of each lunar month," she said. "They would also compensate for local weather conditions that sometimes prevent observations from a given site." BBSO observations are being supplemented with others from the Crim...
Study examines future of species extinction, conservation

extinction of organisms from a community ultimately dampens the ability of surviving species to compensate, or increase in population size, and, consequently, makes the community less resistant to changes in the environment. "The loss of species tend...

...t as on-off switches inside cells, controlling the continuous
flow of chemical signals that tell the cell what to do. A kinase sends a "go" message by adding a chemical unit called a phosphate to another protein, changing its shape or altering its function. The Kinase Project now under way at Dana-Farber is foc...
What it Takes: Design principles to broaden participation in SET
