Student science contest participation influences study, career choices, alumni say

... both the lab skills from professionals and how to explain her project and the science behind it to people who didn't have a technical background are among two of the important lessons she received. Her ABC experience also ignited an interest in medical research that has taken Desbiens to graduate...

Researchers determine genetic cause of Timothy syndrome

...ow at the appropriate time. This abnormality could explain the lethal cardiac arrhythmias in Timothy syndrome patients, said Keating. Further genetic analyses of the particular mutation also showed why it occurred in the same place in all instances of the disease. That analysis revealed that the pa...

Molecular motor implicated in tissue remodeling

...revealed by Goldberg and his colleagues might help explain how the enzymes that digest collagen serve constructive purposes. "The enzymes aren't loose and disorganized where they would just end up destroying the matrix," Goldberg states. "By mechanisms that we are exploring further, they create a relation be...

Scientists sequence genome of kind of organism central to biosphere's carbon cycle

...l pathways they use to metabolize their fats helps explain the ability of diatoms to withstand long periods with little sunlight even to overwinter and then start growing really rapidly once they return to sunlight," she says. Three or four microns in width as many as 70 could fit in the width of a human...

Cancer vaccine based on pathogenic listeria bacteria shows promise targeting metastases

...nduce the production of beta-interferon, which may explain this effect. "The unique ability of listeria to get into the cytosol is the key to its effectiveness," Cook added. "Listeria not only stimulates this additional innate immune response, but it also puts the antigen into exactly the pathway we want and...

Study: Emission of smog ingredients from trees is increasing rapidly

... to go in there with the rest." The study may help explain why ozone levels have not improved in some parts of the country as much as was anticipated with the enactment of clean-air laws, Purves said. Environmental technologies such as catalytic converters and hoses that collect fumes at gas pumps have subst...

Veterans with Gulf War syndrome have damage in specific, primitive portion of nervous system

...at interacts with the enamel crystals. The results explain how 100 nanometer spheres of amelogenin cluster like bowling balls around developing enamel crystals, forcing the crystals to elongate into thin, weaved strands that endow enamel with the strength of steel. The discovery is a milestone for those who...

New fossil sheds light on old mystery

...d fossil of a newly discovered reptile species may explain the function of the extremely long neck for which some protorosaurs are known a feature that has puzzled scientists for decades. The Protorosauria is an order of diverse predatory reptiles that lived as far back as 280 million years ago. Scientist...

Amyloid fibers sprout one step at a time

...abs, however, revealed that this process could not explain amyloid formation. Amyloid formation was also associated with the transient accumulation of intermediate molecules that have been implicated in causing disease. "The process of forming amyloids seems to be implicated in disease perhaps as much as th...

Researchers from UC Berkeley, the University of Michigan, Princeton University, Cornell University and Montana ...

NSF announces six 'FIBR' awards to tackle some of biology's most challenging questions

...sms adapt to these newly acquired genes. To explain the complex signals and feedbacks among neurons, muscles, the skeleton and the whole body that make movement possible and prevent animals from falling over, another project will take a multidisciplinary approach to the study of live, simulated and ro...

Human chromosome 5 final sequence analysis released to public

...cated region on chromosome 5 could eventually help explain how spinal muscular dystrophy is inherited. Researchers had known that deletions in the gene for survival of motor neurons, (SMN) caused the disease, but people with the same deletion can have much more or less severe forms of the disease. It turns o...

Cell's gatekeeper for ammonia revealed in unprecedented detail

... the channel architecture is also expected to help explain how ammonia, carbon dioxide and other gases are taken in, transported between cells and excreted, the scientists said. The issue of Science also includes a "Perspective" article about the significance of determining the structure and its likely mode ...

Researchers discover why mutant gene causes colon cancer

...pt. 9 in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, they explain that APC controls the conversion of dietary vitamin A into retinoic acid. If this process is impaired, colon cancer can result. "For a long time, scientists believed they knew what the APC gene did that it regulated cell growth and division bu...
