Research on carbohydrate metabolism receives historical recognition

..."Our collaboration began 30 years ago when we were still medical students at the University of Prague and has continued ever since. Our efforts have been largely complementary, and one without the other would not have gone as far as in combination." Gerty Cori died in 1957. In 1960 Carl married Anne...

The purple sea urchin has been the most closely studied of the urchins and for years has served as the reproduction model for all sea urchins. Like other species, purple sea urchins are free spawners females inject large clouds of...

The problem with that approach, she says, is that there are many uncertainties about releasing genetically modified organisms into the environment.

"And the key to understanding this mechanism is to see where in time and space each of these is turned on and how it's all coordinated," Hahn said. "So there's a really good reason to look at this in live cells. You ...

By applying a targeted heat source - like ultrasound - only to the tumor, doctors should be able to avoid killing healthy cells that happen to take in the nanoparticles. "The possibility for using these nanoparticles as vehi...

OutFoxed! New research may redefine late-stage cardiac development

.... They found that each region of pre-cardiac cells still developed into a single tube, and then further developed into a four-chamber heart. This resulted in the mouse embryos developing two, four-chambered hearts exhibiting most aspects of advanced heart development. Eventually these embryos succumbed du...

Bacteria use 'molecular lasso' to cop copper

... bacterial cells from it. One piece of the story still to be learned is how the methanobactin is retrieved by bacterial cells, Kim said. The cells apparently latch onto copper-bearing methanobactin molecules, but what happens next isn't known. Also, unlike a cowboy's lasso, methanobactin has no tether to...

As informatics grows, Indiana University helps set 'research agenda'

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- As an academic field, it's still very young. But informatics -- the study of information technology and its use -- has already had a palpable effect on people's lives. "In recent decades, technology has so enhanced our ability to gather data that the sheer volume of data now outstr...
