Insecticide resistance: A constraint on evolutionary change

...- a far less likely event. The researchers went on to sequence the 119 position in 26 natural populations of Ae. aegypti in 12 countries and found that in all cases the three-letter codon at this position was the same, fitting with the lack of AchE1-based resistance in this species observed worl...

The blind really do hear better

In the present study, researchers at McGill and at Universit de Montral tested people from 3 categories: those who were fully sighted, "early blind" (blind at birth or lost their sight during the first two years of life), and "late blind" (tho...

Kluwer saw the course on the Virginia Tech website and approached Heflin in September 2001 about writing a textbook. "When I said, 'No way do I have the time to write a co...

90 million year old dino tracks found on resort island

Fossils of these animals were firstfound more than hundred years ago on the island of Hvar and were studiedby D. Gorjanovi-Kramberger of the Croatian National Museum and Kornhub...

Secret behind hard exoskeletons, spreading wings revealed

...process. In the first phase of the work, the team went to work to determine the genetic sequence of bursicon. Using cockroaches, Honegger's students were able to collect and purify a small sample of the hormone. They sent this sample to a laboratory at Harvard University that chemically sequenced it and ...

LSU researcher discovers new bird

Then, last month, Lane and some cohorts were in Peru conducting other field work when they made spur-of-the-moment plans to give it one more try. After obtaining permission from the proper authorities, Lane and his grou...

XsalF comes to the fore in brain regionalization

...on of more posterior markers. Onai et al. next went on to test the effects of the loss of XsalF function. Disabling the gene by the deletion of functional domains resulted in embryos with significant reductions in anterior neural structures. Conditional loss-of-function experiments showed that the gen...

Researchers discover how worms' noses sense oxygen

...cyclase is put together, Marletta and his students went in search of similar enzymes in the genomes of other organisms. Patricia Pellicena, a UC Berkeley postdoctoral fellow with collaborator John Kuriyan, a UC Berkeley professor of chemistry, found homologues not only in the nematode, but also in more pr...

Study finds plant enzyme function changes with location in cell

In that location, the enzyme desaturated fatty acids the same way it did in yeast. Conversely, when the scientists added the chloroplast addr...

A fly's taste experience is much like our own

As Scott continues her genetic studies of the remainder of the 68 gustatory neurons, she and her lab colleagues also a...

Japanese researchers develop novel method of introducing transgenes into animals

...ovirus was taken up by the sperm stem cells, which went on to produce sperm with the transgene. According to Dr. Shinohara and his colleagues Mito Kanatsu-Shinohara and Shinya Toyokuni, 86 percent of the males injected with the retrovirus became fertile. Eight of 31 of these males (26 percent) later mate...

Improved nutrition could prevent more than half of the world's child deaths annually

...e due to undernutrition. However, the new analysis went further. It examined whether the risk of dying due to being underweight varies by cause of death. Using data from 10 large cohort studies from sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia with information on weight-for-age z score and survival or death by c...

Conflicting views on embryonic and adult stem cells complicate research in stem cell therapeutics

... for animal and human stem cells, only $10 million went to research involving human ESCs. The ESCs are also expensive at $5,000 per vial, forcing NIH to subsidize cell culturing or offer supplements to its grants in order to cover the extra cost. Quality control is another critical issue in stem cell ther...

Medical implants work better when you rough them up, study finds

"The interface went beyond a layer of connective tissue cells these old implants essentially became embedded in the body as connective tissue and bone grew into them. Their removal was nearly impossible, as it usually resulted in major bone loss in some types of implan...

Existing drug may prevent brain injury and seizures in newborns

"The finding that treatment with a drug prevents injury when given after the insult is tremendously significant," says Jensen, of the Department of Neurology...

Damaged genes in aging human brain provide clues to cognitive decline

...ated to gene damage. The researchers then went on to show that many of the genes with altered expression in the brain were badly damaged and could not function properly. They showed that these genes also could be selectively damaged in brain cells grown in the laboratory, thereby mimicking some o...

LARGE protein can overcome defects in some types of muscular dystrophy

"However, patients with muscular dystrophy undergo this process much more quickly, and they eventually lose the ability to repa...
