Reporting in a paper appearing online ahead of regular publication by the Journal of Physiology, two UO researchers concluded that when NK-1 receptor activity was diminished, so went the dilation of blood flow necessary for bringing warm blood from the body's core to the skin where the heat is...

Computing catches up with theory

...patience. In many fields, ideas and theories surge ahead while the tools to test them can take decades to catch up. When Pe-ter Richardson began talking with colleagues who were modeling blood flow through the vessels on the heart's surface, he hardly suspected that the collaboration would lead to a test o...

Scientists discover two-component lantibiotic with therapeutic potential

...or of a paper that will be posted online this week ahead of regular publication by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.In previous work, van der Donk first identified the molecular activity of an enzyme (LctM) responsible for naturally turning a small protein into a lantibiotic.

Researchers find docking sites for glucocorticoid receptor and Hsp90

...cer drugs. The study, published online this week ahead of regular publication in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, also uncorks an almost 15-year bottleneck in research caused by difficulties in deciphering the actions of a heat-shock protein known as Hsp90. Hsp90 belongs to a family...

Intensified research effort yields climate-resilient agriculture to blunt impact of global warming

...ion, and soil and water management." "The task ahead may well prove bigger and more complex than what we faced at the outset of the Green Revolution," Dr. Zeigler added. "To feed a growing population, food production must be doubled over the next 25 years, but now poor countries must do so in harsh en...

Don't move a muscle: Evolutionary insight into myogenesis

In a paper released online ahead of its scheduled December 15th publication date, Dr. Michael Krause (NIH) and colleagues detail the transcription network that drives muscle development in the roundworm C. elegans, and make a strong argument for an evolutionarily conserved program o...

The current lack of a vaccination program is not due to a lack of vaccine options, as several different vaccines have now protected laboratory monkeys from Ebola and major vaccine labs are anxious to help. Rather, "Uncertaint...

Self-assembling nano-ice discovered at UNL -- Structure resembles DNA

Squirrels place winning bet in unpredictable world

...t suggests the clever animals are staying one step ahead of its food source. A team of scientists, led by Dr. Stan Boutin from the U of As Faculty of Science, has discovered that red squirrels are able to counter the trees "swamp and starve" strategy of boom and bust seed production by producing an extra...

Squirrels winning at outwitting trees' survival strategy

Prior to masting seasons, the squirrels are producing second litters an act that would be, well, squirrelly in seasons of low food supply.But a popula...

Screening for complex genetic interactions

In a report published online ahead of the January 15th print edition, Dr. David Amberg (SUNY Upstate Medical University) and colleagues have developed a large-scale reverse genetic screen to identify complex haploinsufficient interactions in S. cerevisiae. A complex haploinsufficiency...
