Brain Protein "Rescues" Neurons From Atrophy

...her different parts of the visual cortex responded particularly to specific neurotrophins. Such a differential response would help confirm that neurotrophins are not simply a general growth enhancer for neurons, but represent a sort of chemical "language" that specifically regulates how different kinds of neurons...

Tumor Suppressor Gene Located In Liver Cancer Cells

Rosemary May Have Anti-Cancer Properties

...who eat more fat than they should, rosemary may be particularly important." However, the type of fat consumed was important: Diets high in saturatedfats seemed to block the protection that rosemary offered, while diets highin unsaturated fats were more beneficial.

Heat-loving Microbe Repairs Its DNA With Light

...gical that the S. acidocaldarius cell should have particularly effective ways of repairing damageto its DNA," said Grogan. Grogan tested the microbe's repair capabilities by artificiallydamaging the DNA of live S. acidocaldarius cells with UVradiation, whose effects on DNA are precisely known. As expected,the...

Automobiles Gain High Technology Noses To Sniff Out Breaches In Air Pollution Laws In Europe Wide Research Project

However these measures have been undermined by the limitations in current sensor technology. Drivers have found that their sophisticated air management systems are n...

Bee Sting Treatment Should Emphasize Speed, Not Method Of Removal

... to bee stings, removingthe sting rapidly could be particularly important, Visscher said. Systemicallergic reactions are dose dependent, so the faster a sting is removed,the less venom is injected, and the less likely a person is to have dangerouswhole-body responses like constriction of breathing or a drop in bl...

Component In Soy Products May Be Substitute For Estrogen Treatment

...for soybean isoflavonesin maintaining bone health, particularly in the lumbar spine," saidSusan Potter, a professor of nutrition. "Soy isoflavones act like weakestrogens in respect to bone metabolism. Maybe postmenopausal women canuse soy products instead of estrogen replacement. Maybe women at-risk forbreast can...

New Software Provides Quick Analysis of ion-Channel Activity

...could make a tremendous difference in drug design, particularly for conditions where ion channels are implicated. For example, in people who have some kinds of inherited neuromuscular diseases, an amino acid in the receptors for the neurotransmitter has been altered, he said. These alterations cause the ion cha...

They sighted only a single bamboo lemur andheard the calls of black-and-white ruffed lemurs. "There should have been many more, b...

NCAR Scientists Trek To Africa For Biosphere-Atmosphere Chemistry Study

Most people with NIDDM develop symptoms only after age 40, which has made it difficult to gather the large multi-generational families needed for ge...

New Nonviral Gene Therapy System Could Help Fight Cancer
