Stuck on you: Scientists lay bare secrets of bacterial attachment proteins

...o nanometre-wide Dr Adhesins. Their work helps to resolve a long-standing debate amongst microbiologists; it leads to the reclassifying of the Dr Adhesins into a group of bacterial protein appendages known as 'fimbriae'. These appendages are very difficult to see using the available electron microscopy tec...

...early progenitor cell populations. The only way to resolve the exact cell type was to correctly identify progenitors present in the blood, which is a tall order. "It's known that they must be there, but at very low frequencies," explains Bhandoola. "Our lab has previously shown that the early T-cel...

Researchers review evolutionary history of modern algae

...se a lot of carbon-dioxide, then we may be able to resolve the problem of green house effect," Quigg says. "But if you have an ocean full of algae that do not like to use carbon-dioxide, then you are in big trouble. Carbon-dioxide will keep increasing." ...

Gage, Ph.D., and colleagues at the Salk Institute in La Jolla, CA, and Kumamoto University in Japan, appears in the July 15, 2004, issue of Nature. Adult ste...

Stem-cell research and reproductive cloning laws should be separate

...last year two international bodies were unable to resolve disagreements that involved bioethical issues. First, the United Nations General Assembly failed to pass a treaty on reproductive cloning because of insistence by some countries that the treaty include a ban on cloning for research. She argues that i...

UNC research accelerates discovery of novel gene function

...of the UNC Gene Therapy Center. The study helps to resolve two bottlenecks in determining gene functions, he said. "It offers a quick and efficient way to transfer cDNA into a viral vector library, and it also helps isolate altered cells, ensuring that the changes in them are due to the introduced gene. The ...

Origin of West Indian insect eater much older than previously thought

...Africa. Recent genetic testing does not completely resolve this issue, but rules out the possibility that the solenodons are related to African insectivores and makes a North American origin more likely. The latest discoveries about solenodons suggest that scientists rethink their interpretations of ...

Newly grown kidneys can sustain life in rats

To help resolve uncertainty about which kidney functions are critical to sustaining life, scientists cut the connections between the bladder and the new kidneys in a subset of the experimental rats. Rats with no new kidneys lived for two to three days, and rats whos...

Vision: how perceptions survive in the face of ambiguity

...plex world, one of the major tasks of vision is to resolve ambiguous information into a stable image of our surroundings. By presenting subjects with differing versions of visually ambiguous images, researchers have identified the factors that are important for perceptual stabilization, a process that allows...

Whales, seals or men? Who stole all the fish?

...sults suggest that international policies will not resolve the conflicts over who is taking all the fish. "If there are going to be problems, they are not at a global level. They are at a local level, of local fisheries affecting local populations of marine mammals," says Phil Hammond, a marine mammal biolog...

Safety is a non-issue while considering ethanol in fuel cells. The challenge will be to reduce the cost of producing ethanol from corn and increase tax advantages in ...

NIST-led research de-mystifies origins of 'junk' DNA

...ranscript. Research from the CARB group appears to resolve a debate over the "early versus late" timing of the appearance of introns. Since introns were discovered in 1978, scientists have debated whether genes were born split (the "introns-early" view), or whether they became split after eukaryotic cells (t...
