Human chromosome 5 final sequence analysis released to public

...omosome 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 out that the region c...

...od; and so-called "ballistic" tongues that have no muscular attachment at the tip and can be hurled out nearly the length of the salamander's body. Wake has shown in previous studies that these tongues are not a good way to classify salamanders, because the various types of tongues have evolved several times ...

UCSD biologists develop 'super-endurance' strain of mice

...ke full use of oxygen. But when the demands of our muscular system exceed its available supply of oxygen, as in sprinting for a bus or lifting a heavy object, a protein known as hypoxia inducible transcription factor-1, or HIF-1, is activated. This protein enables the muscle to switch to the more energeticall...

Heartless worms hold clues to cardiac arrhythmias, sudden death

... doesn't have a heart, it does have a pharynx -- a muscular tube that "pumps" food inside. The pharynx, Petersen said, is similar in many ways to a heart. It has an intrinsic beating -- like a heartbeat -- that responds to neuronal input by speeding up or slowing down. The investigators were able to take adv...

At the other end of the trunk, hidden inside the whale bone, the body widens to form a large egg sac. The greenish roots, branching off from the egg sac, are filled w...
