Safety for Sharks On Florida's Gulf of Mexico coast, researchers are using acoustic tags to track several shark species, uncovering trends in the movements of these over-fished populations. "M...

Structure solved by Scripps scientists shows one way that body controls gene expression

...he nucleus of a cell, they are usually transported outside the nucleus, where the mRNAs can be "translated" into proteins. At this point, certain regulatory proteins stabilize the mRNA, allowing it to be translated by the cell's machinery into proteins. Other regulatory proteins destabilize the mRNAs, markin...

Data shows FUZEON does not increase lipodystrophy in pre-treated HIV patients

...ON works before the other classes of drugs, acting outside the immune cell and blocking the virus before it can enter. Based on the results presented at CROI, Roche is exploring clinical research to assess the benefits of adding FUZEON to nucleoside sparing regimens designed to decrease toxicities associated...

European researchers launch 10 million euro collaborative technology project
