Unravelling new complexity in the genome

...anner than previously appreciated and much of this additional regulation occurs in the nervous system. The alternative splicing step allows a single gene to specify multiple protein products by processing the RNA transcripts made from genes (which are translated to make protein). We are finding that a sign...

Bursts of waves drive immune system 'soldiers' toward invaders

...e each Hem-1 protein is eliminated, it recruits an additional Hem-1 right "next door." As each Hem-1 succumbs, a new one appears - but only on one side. Weiner thinks the structure of actin physically blocks Hem-1 from recruiting its daughter Hem-1 on one side, so Hem-1 is sequentially added only in one direct...

...uplicating existing facilities. Before significant additional investment is made, there is a need for an audit of the resources currently available and the needs of customers. NPL is uniquely qualified to play a part in this research. It holds world-leading independent expertise in the evaluation and calibra...

Tropical insects 'go the distance' to inform rainforest conservation

...about the whole thing. Hulcr agrees. This and additional research will allow conservation managers and policy makers to base decisions on data rather than on theory so that we can preserve as much diversity as possible, Hulcr said. We are excited to be part of the ongoing, international effort to add to th...

Brain blood flow gives clues to treating depression

...le electroconvulsive treatment was associated with additional decreases in blood flow, he reported. Currently, clinical psychiatry is based almost solely on subjective observer-based judgment. Our findings suggest that objective imaging evaluations could support subjective clinical decisions, he said. Using ...

The net result is a significant reduction in water permeability, that can be expected to increase the service life of the conc...
