When off-target is right on

... Tokyo subway station during rush hour. In the classical view of molecular recognition, the binding molecules fit each other like a lock and key. Half a century of research has shown, however, that in numerous cases, the molecules need to deform in order to bind, as the key is not an exact fit for the mole...

Fruit fly research may 'clean up' conventional impressions of biology

... out in the early stages of embryonic development, classical biological experiments have provided only isolated "snapshots" of the development process, denying scientists a complete "movie" of it unfolding. Now, by combining experimental methods from physics and molecular biology, the team has replaced thes...

Pavlov's cockroach: Classical conditioning of salivation in an insect

...eagues at Tohoku University in Japan, demonstrates classical conditioning of salivation in cockroaches, for the first time in species other than dogs and humans, thereby providing the first evidence of sophisticated neural control of autonomic function in insects. Its underlying neural mechanisms remain elusiv...

University of Pittsburgh discovers genetic 'shut down' trigger in healthy immune cells

...because it predicts loss-of-function, it targets a classical tumor-suppressor gene, and it occurs in (peripheral blood mononuclear cells)," Dr. Baysal wrote, adding that the mutation is present at much higher levels in messenger RNA compared to DNA. "This may give us a tool to modify the immune cells surviva...

The sound of proteins

Biologists have converted protein sequences into classical music in an attempt to help vision-impaired scientists and boost the popularity of genomic biology. New research published today in the open access journal Genome Biology describes how researchers have found a way to present human proteins as musical...

Blood's clotting cells harbor 'ticking time bombs,' finding may help extend blood supply

...poptosis. We found that platelets undergo really classical apoptosis, said David Huang of The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research in Australia. Its surprising in many ways because platelets are an unusual cell type that lacks a nucleus. We didnt know what was controlling their life span. Cell...

...uced spectral shifts in areas corresponding to the classical homunculus. The authors used the data from 22 subjects to create maps of cortical activity in different frequency ranges. In the low-frequency band (LFB) (832 Hz), movements reduced the signal amplitudes at 2030 Hz, whereas in the high-frequency band...

Virtual duck bills demonstrate species coexistence

...l be more efficient and out-compete the other. The classical explanation is that each species has evolved morphological or physiological traits that allow it to exploit some resources more efficiently than all other species. Such partitioning of resources essentially provides each species with exclusive access...
