Humble Pocket Gophers Shed Light On The Genetic Fortitude Of Cheetahs

...etic variation--a degree of sameness close to that seen in inbred laboratory mice. Key evidence came from a surprising 1985 experiment in which unrelated captive cheetahs accepted skin grafts from each other, a sign that their immune systems were genetically almost identical. However, in recent years some...

Protein Glitch May Be Early Problem In Inherited Alzheimer's

...ectly causing the widespread damage to nerve cells seen in FAD, but it may interfere with other proteins that could. Like dominoes falling, a change in presenilin sets off a chain reaction.

Changing Continental Runoff Patterns Could Change Ocean Circulation

...models of the ancient oceans. "We have already seen some of the consequences of changing surface waterways," says Karen L. Bice, graduate student in geosciences. "The Colorado River barely flows to the ocean and the Aral Sea is drying up. We do have the capacity to alter the amounts of freshwater t...

Scientists Identify Retrovirus-Like Components In Corn Genome

...iral diseases. Active retroviruses have never been seen in plants. "Despite the fact that more than half its genome consists of this retrovirus-like DNA, corn is not known to have any retroviral diseases," Bennetzen says. "If these retrovirus agents are there, but don't succeed in making the plants sick, ...

Plants Have Future As Environmental Clean-Up Agents

...ygen is present. "In some cases, we have actually seen 10 pounds per acre a dayremoved," Davis said. "It really depends on what's present there." In either case, using plant-based bioremediation is cheaper thenmore traditional methods of clean-up such as pumping and treating orexcavation, according to L...

Methane Deep In Ocean Crust Could Feed Chemical-Hungry Microorganisms

...rapped in rock as bubbles so tiny that they can be seen clearly only with a microscope. It is more likely that the methane may be used by deep-sea microorganisms. As the rock ages it continues to fracture and admit seawater. It could be that the seawater carries microorganisms down into the rock where...
