Hot 'Lanta: NASA, School Kids Team To Study How Trees Help Cities Keep Their Cool

...orbs a large amount of heat before its temperature rises 1 degree, and takes a long time torelease it. That means that trees, which have a large water content and release water into the atmosphere to keep themselvescool, also absorb a lot of the incoming heat and release it over a longer period of time. ...

New Mechanism To Explain Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Identified

... "The amount of nitric oxide in the cell interior rises because carbonmonoxide usurps the spot of nitric oxide on the heme proteins," says Thom. Thisimbalance makes NO available for biochemical reactions that would not normallyoccur within the cell, namely ones that produce tissue-damaging oxidants andfre...

Divorce, Insect Style: Termites Swap Mates

...at the nest or on the prowl, the dissatisfied mate rises up on its legsand begins a bouncy, stilt-walking motion while wiggling a section of itsabdomen where a pheromone-producing gland is found. The airborne chemicalsex-attractant in the pheromone and the characteristic posture are whatadvertises the te...

Gene For Inherited Syndrome Is Possible New Tumor Suppressor

... role in causing cancer. But inthose cases, cancer rises because the genes produce too much of the enzyme. In PJS, on the other hand, cancer seems to occur because a protein kinase isn'tproduced. "As of now," said de la Chapelle, "we have no clue as to how the loss of this gene might lead to cancer. That w...

Antioxidants May Reduce Harmful Complications Of Diabetes

...Insulin issecreted when the level of blood glucose rises -- as after a meal. All diabetic patients in the study were taking only drugs referred to assulfonylureas, which increase the sensitivity of receptors to insulin throughoutthe body.

Relatives Of People with Colorectal Polyps Face Increased Risk For Colorectal Cancer

... If a person has a relative with adenoma, the risk rises to about 10percent to 12 percent.
