To the researchers' knowledge, this study is the first to examine both plasma melatonin circadian rhythm and urinary 6-sulfatoxymelatonin concentration in subjects who have been e...

Gene helps regulate longevity in flies, and perhaps humans

... not simply favor longevity; instead, they promote variability in life span. The research was a collaboration among scientists at NC State University and the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow. It was funded in part by grants from the National Institutes of Health, the R...

Rising ozone levels pose challenge to U.S. soybean production, scientists say

Ozone enters plants through stomata (tiny pores in the epidermal layer of leaves) and reduces photosynthesis. Evaporation of moisture also occurs through these pores. Carbon dioxide, researchers ...

Research shows therapeutic cloning can cure Parkinson's-like disease in mice

While they did not yet develop a new cell line for each of the mice treated, their results prove in principle that the method can work for all cloned cell lines tested. Using th...

Using GPR to estimate tree root biomass

... dioxide on living trees. Although they can detect variability above the ground without harming the trees, it is almost impossible to know what is going on below ground. "We need a way to measure how the root system is responding that does not involve destroying it," said Johnsen. John Butnor, SRS plant physiolo...

Envisat observes resurgent ozone hole

...-IASB. "Superimposed on this is the meteorological variability which this year still allows sufficient chlorine activation over a large area and for a longer period than last year." MIPAS will continue to monitor the condition of the ozone layer for the life of the Envisat spacecraft, together with the spacecra...

Familiarity decides if wolf spider loves 'em or eats 'em

...ook alike. I studied this species because there is variability among the males," says Hebets. Previously, researchers had explored spider behavior with young males and females collected in the field, kept in isolation and then brought together in a laboratory. In the wild, male wolf spiders mature earlier than ...

Activity detailed for sirtuins, involved in metabolism, aging, gene expression

...o their jobs, their second binding site shows more variability and is likely responsible for the specificity of roles seen among the various sirtuins each different sirtuin binds to a different target and carries out a different biological task.
