Mouse study shows NPAS3 and NPAS1 genes may be linked to psychosis

... do not have a normal startle response, and have a distinct reduction of a protein called reelin in their brains. Other researchers have shown in postmortem examinations of the brain tissue of schizophrenics that these patients have a reduction in reelin, said Dr. McKnight. Schizophrenics also have problems s...

"This tells us that VENT cells are remarkable cells. They are important. If you take them away you have heart defects, cran...

Critically endangered monkey species plummets more than 50 percent since 1994

... between 281 and 317 individuals still exist in 19 distinct populations. Rampant development separates the remaining populations of this langur species, preventing the groups from interacting with one another. Fourteen of the groups are likely to disappear within the next decade, since they either lack a bree...

PCB breakdown in rivers depends on sediment-specific bacteria, find Carnegie Mellon U. scientists

...ingerprinting, the Carnegie Mellon team discovered distinct bacterial populations in the first-ever side-by-side comparison of PCB-laden sediments taken from separate, contaminated rivers. The results are being reported by graduate student Christine Wang on Sunday, Aug. 22, at the 228th annual meeting of the ...

Asian elephant sex pheromone transporter revealed

.... Use of albumin in urinary pheromone transport is distinct from other mammalian pheromone transport systems studied so far. Furthermore, the exploitation of albumin in pheromone transport complements the particular lifestyle of Asian elephants by reflecting the uniqueness of elephant anatomy, physiology, and...

Women took over the craft in the 1920s, when many of the men left the area to serve in the military or look for jobs. Though new forms have evolved in the work of individual artists, the...

Researchers report new gene test for isolated cleft lip and palate

In this case, they found that distinct combinations of sequence variations in and around the gene IRF6 correlated with an increased chance that a child would be born with a cleft. IRF6, which encodes a gene-activating protein called a transcription factor, plays a role during development...
