USGS finds elevated levels of organochlorine pesticides in Aleutian bald eagles

...tive success because of eggshell thinning and embryo death, was associated with many of these declines. Since DDT was banned in the United States, populations of bald eagles, peregrine falcons and ospreys have increased. The researchers are continuing their studies into the so...

Researchers say hormones are key to evolution of insect metamorphosis

New mouse model could be key to understanding role of folic acid in preventing birth defects

...olved for 18 years.Having a tool to dissect how an embryo gets folic acid is going to be useful toanswering many clinical questions. There are practical applications to ourfindings.

A safer way of altering genes

...ks, every cell in theanimal that develops from the embryo will contain the added genes, including itssperm and eggs. This means that the genes will be inherited by the transgenicanimals' offspring. It's a haphazard process, however. Often the gene doesn't getincorporated into the embryo's genome. And...

...the egg white. "We put it in a one-day-old chicken embryo by microinjecting it into a cavity called the blastoderm," explains Sensoli. He and his colleagues hope that some virus reaches primordial cells in the blastoderm which develop into sperm and eggs, so the gene for the protein can be passed down to fu...

Human stem cell research leads Science's top ten list of the best scientific advances in 1999

...ve damage. But, for many, using cells from a human embryo to do so is a troubling prospect. Although the debate is sure to continue, new federal rules suggest that the climate for embryonic stem cell research may be beginning to thaw. And there are few ethical concerns regarding stem cells from adults, whi...

UCSF researcher reports on protein therapy to reverse facial birth defects

...niofacial deformities, and that dosing the chicken embryo with a regulatory protein can restore a near normal face. The results suggest that, someday, carefully timed protein treatments in human fetuses might repair cleft palate and milder forms of some birth defects. The research was presented here toda...

The exact reason for telomerase's continued activity in cancer cells isn'tclear, says Greider. Some have speculated, she says, that whatever sparkscancer'...

She wants to know how those segments form and how the cells they contain become grouped according to function, from controlling motor activity to patterning the development of the head.

"If the developing embryo is unable to repair endogenous types of DNA damage, normal damage that cells are always exposed to, the likelihood of going to full term is reduced," Leadon explained.

On the other hand, the worms with 82 residues were extremely sluggish, and their growth was slowed. It took them more than twice as long to reach adulthood.
