Technology already exists to stabilize global warming

... A strong case for action comes from three lines of evidence, said Pacala. First, investigations of the Earth's climate over the last million years show that various factors, such as changing carbon dioxide levels, tend to reinforce each other and cause the temperature "to switch all at once" as it...

Duke study disputes idea that trees can 'relocate' quickly in response to climate change

...hen you put the molecular data together with other lines of evidence, it suggests that maybe they didn't move as fast as we previously thought," said James Clark, H.L. Blomquist Professor of Biology at Duke's Nicholas School of the Environment and Earth Sciences. "Maybe the species that are growing far to ...

Two-pronged attack targeting EGF receptor hinders cancer cell growth

Tandem application of either Erbitux and Iressa, or Erbitux and Tarceva, proved synergistically more effective than single drug treaent at several levels. "The combination of Erbitux ...

Altered expression of key developmental genes underlies evolution of butterfly wing patterns

... in question, so-called "intervein" patterns, have lines of symmetry halfway between the insect's wing veins and occur in a range of shapes, including eyespots, ellipses, and midlines. How these dramatic markings have evolved is not completely understood. Previous work had implicated several genes in the f...

Structure solved at Scripps shows how one human protein reduces potency of chemotherapy

...ls, this protection can cut both ways. "Tumor cell lines hijack [AGT's] function and overexpress the protein to escape therapies," he says. Cells in some tissues, such as the brain, naturally have high levels of AGT. This enables cancers that arise in the brain to resist chemotherapy. Cancer cells in other...

New compound 'highly efficacious' at reducing human tumour growth

...hibition of the proliferation of human tumour cell lines in vivo. ZK-CDK blocked cell cycle progression in G1 and induced apoptosis, blocked VEGF-induced vascular permeability in vivo and reduced the blood supply of human tumour xenografts. "These animal data are very promising in terms of anti-tumour effi...

The first domesticated donkey was born in Africa

...t all domesticated donkeys come from two different lines from northeast Africa. Donkeys were the last species of domestic livestock (cows, sheep, goats, horses, pigs, etc.) to be domesticated. Archeological evidence suggests that they were domesticated some 5,000 to 6,000 years ago. However, there was no s...

Scientist honored for studies of genetic influence on chemotherapy, tumor development

His research in the genetic understanding of cellular life and death is exactly what will allow us to continue to make gains in how cancer is treated, diagnosed and eventually defeated." Lowe's early research focused on the ...

Scientists discover genetic marker responsible for two-fold increase in risk of rheumatoid arthritis

...lecule, which in turn interrupts the communication lines and keeps immune cells from becoming overactive. In cases where the SNP is present in one or both copies of an individual's genes for this enzyme, the team found that the negative regulation by this enzyme appears to be inefficient, so that T cells a...

For many pagans, prehistoric sites are not ruins but living temples or sacred sites. They feel drawn to these places to perform seasonal rituals or to observe astronomical events. M...

Cells with the artificial chromosome carrying the gene were selected and injected into mice. As expected, the animals showed signi...
