Princeton scientists describe genetics of blood stem cells

... from a sample of mature blood cells that had been depleted of stem cells. They then "subtracted" the two libraries, removing the majority of commonly expressed "housekeeping" genes while enriching for those that are preferentially expressed in the immature stem cells. By analyzing the DNA sequences in the "s...

Treatment protects mouse ovaries from radiation therapy

...n with a huge supply of immature egg cells that is depleted throughout their lives by a process called programmed cell death or apoptosis. Only a tiny fraction of the oocytes a female is born with actually mature and are released from the ovaries as eggs. It has long been known that treatment with chemother...

November GEOLOGY and GSA TODAY highlights

...osphorus, and many trace elements, and is the most depleted in some other trace elements such as chromium. The mineralogical characteristics of pyroxene in this meteorite imply that the parent rock cooled more slowly than other basaltic shergottites and thus may have been more deeply buried. Like other martia...

Household exposure to passive smoke depletes some vitamins in non-smokers

Too much of a good thing

...n specific areas of the developing embryo in an RA depleted state. Dr. Hamada, Dr. Petkovich and colleagues have demonstrated that CPY26 acts to protect the developing mammalian embryo from the deleterious effects of excessive RA activity. The discovery that CPY26 functions to restrict the field of RA signal...

Excess iron stores more common than anemia in study of U.S. elderly

...96. In contrast to the relatively low incidence of depleted iron stores in the study population (3%), the prevalence of high iron stores was much greater (12.9%). To determine the effects of chronic disease conditions on the results, the researchers identified a subset of 182 subjects with indications of chro...

LSU researcher finds new petroleum method, receives patent

...wn and projected global petroleum deposits will be depleted within 100 years given current use rates. Although new sources of energy will be developed, there always will be a major need for petroleum hydrocarbons, including high-energy fuels and petrochemicals such as plastics, coatings and solvents.

Scientist uses 19th century fishwheel' device to study fish populations

...ts indicate that striped bass which were severely depleted 20 years ago are at their highest numbers since scientists first started keeping records, thanks possibly to catch limits and other fishing regulations. "If we do this research over the next five to 10 years, we can tell how well those efforts are p...

Statins' beneficial effects on HDL

...consequence of apoA-I promoter activation in cells depleted of mevalonate. In the course of this work they have uncovered an unsuspected link between the transcription factor PPARa, which activates apoA-I expression, and the transcriptional response to statins. As the authors note, mevalonate is not only requ...

Gene therapy technique reduces alcohol consumption in rats

.... Volkow and others showed that DRD2 receptors are depleted in human alcoholics. Whereas behavioral effects of this depletion are unclear, Drs. Thanos and Volkow hypothesize that DRD2 depletion produces a blunted pleasure response that leads alcoholics to increase their intake. The research team performed two...
