...molecular pathways." The new report "brings to the fore
a relatively new and unexpected target," a large protein complex called the 26S proteasome, which is found in high amounts in both the cytoplasm and nucleus of all eukaryotic cells, Mitchell said. Among the complex's several key jobs is to break down...
In a noisy world, how can the senses project and receive information at the same time?
...Cricket, are generated by rhythmically rubbing the fore
wings together resulting in a form of sound production called stridulation. As crickets ears are located on the forelegs, they are fully exposed to the self-generated sounds. Many animals reduce the responsiveness of their peripheral auditory system...
The jaws stiffness found to dictate speech production
... report on direct measures of jaw stiffness in the fore
and aft plane that were obtained by applying precise mechanical disturbances to the jaw at positions associated with the production of vowels. The level of jaw stiffness was found to be variable, with higher stiffness observed along the axis of jaw p...

mapping data for a 2000-mile geological structure--the Tongareva triple junction--in the southwestern Pacific basin. In the January issue of GSA TODAY, A. Hope Jahren and Leonel Silveira Lobo Sternberg use concepts of changing global weather patterns...
Waddling is a good way to make up for short legs - at least for penguins, say UC Berkeley researchers
...op at the opposite extreme. The penguins also rock fore
and aft as they move forward, employing the same inverted pendulum motion used by all animals, even four-legged animals. The percentage of energy retained during one stride - two step cycles - is called the recovery rate. "We were actually very surpr...
