Cells Say The Darndest Things

...ts of individual vesicles in the journal Science earlier this year. Cells use vesicles to signal each other in a variety of ways. Such messages include mail to the brain that says "ouch!" from a bumped funny bone. Other messages regulate the female reproductive cycle. By analyzing large numbers of vesicles...

Malaysian State Of Sarawak Bans Commercial Hunting Of Wildlife

...Sarawak voted unanimously to bancommercial hunting earlier this month to prevent further depletion of itswildlife and protect the food source of local communities. The new law ends all commercial sales of animals or animal productstaken in the wild. Up to this point, the wild meat trade was considered one ...

First TableTop Source Of Concentrated X-Rays Built

... at the samespeed as the laser. A major hurdle for earlier attempts at such a setup was that the X-rays tendedto cancel each other out, much like overlapping water waves neutralize eachother if their peaks and troughs coincide. The canceled waves produce very dim,diffuse X-ray patterns on the detector. But...

Researchers Demonstrate That COX-2 Inhibits Angiogenisis In Tumor Cells

The research builds on earlier work by DuBois and his colleagues thatsuggested aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) helpprevent colon cancer by inhibiting COX-2, which they found to be elevated incolon cancer cells. However, this new research su...

Mr. Ples Throws Scientists Into A Tizzy

...served on one side butpartly open on the other. It earlier was thought to have a brain capacity ofmore than 600 cc -- about two and a half cups of water. "Such a large brain wouldbe quite extraordinary because all of the other Australopithecus africanusbrains are in the mid-400 cc range," Conroy says. ...

Jefferson Researchers Provide Leads To Potential Parkinson's Treatment

...ence of the drug's beneficial effects." In earlier animal studies, Dr. Schneider and his coworkers found thatinjecting GM1 ganglioside improved Parkinsonian symptoms, increased levels ofdopamine in the brain and stimulated nerve terminal sprouting. "It possiblysaved damaged dopamine cells from dying,...

'Auditory Scene Analysis' Helps Find Mates

...structure and function of midshipman brains. From earlier studies with Robert Baker at the New York University Medical School, Bass knew that a part of the midshipman male brain, called the hindbrain, contains neurons that constitute a kind of vocal pacemaker. Like a rhythm generator, the pacemaker tells t...

Who Needs Flowers? Transgenic Plants Sprout Embryos On Leaves

...ineeredplants that would put the gene to work much earlier thanusual in the plant's life cycle. One result of the gene's rescheduled activity wasparticularly striking: Some leaf surfaces sprouted tinyclusters of glove-shaped, embryonic tissue. And some ofthose embryos, while still attached to the leaf surfa...

Genetic Screening May Be Tool For Selecting Cancer Treatment, Research Suggests

Several cancer treatments,including some chemotherapy agents and radiation, work by initiatingdouble-strand breaks in DNA. Other researchers had suggested that the effect of BRCA2 ondouble-strand break repair migh...

Scientists Learn How Cells Limit Their Stress

...death." The cell's need for relief accounts for an earlier finding: that the cellproduces high levels of chaperones only briefly, even if stressful conditionspersist. This self-limiting response suggested a feedback loop in whichchaperones cause the shutdown of their own production. Morimoto and his coworker...

Grassland Birds Are Not Nesting In Non-Native Grasses

.... Also, Haas says, cool seasongrasses can be mowed earlier than warm season grasses, "before the first nestshave fledged." The researchers are also looking at whether insect populations differamong grass varieties. "A community of native plants support native insects. Theexotic grasses may not suppo...

Antisense Therapy Prevents Burkitt's Lymphoma In Mice
