Curiously, the retinas of the three other studied genera Rousettus (rousette fruit bat), Eidolon (straw coloured fruit bat), and Epomophorus (epauleted fruit bat) completely lack blue cones, they possess only green cones. "With j...

Marine phytoplankton changes form to protect itself from different predators

Bacteria ferry nanoparticles into cells for early diagnosis, treatment

...- Researchers at Purdue University have shown that common bacteria can deliver a valuable cargo of "smart nanoparticles" into a cell to precisely position sensors, drugs or DNA for the early diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. The approach represents a potential way to overcome hurdles in deliver...

Plants recognize their siblings, biologists discover

...ters. The ability to recognize and favour kin is common in animals, but this is the first time it has been shown in plants said Susan Dudley, associate professor of biology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. When plants share their pots, they get competitive and start growing more roots, which al...

Study suggests other causes for childhood brain aneurysms

It is unlikely, however, that alternative splicing adds substantially to the variety of functions and structures among proteins. Over the next couple of years the ENCODE project will be scaled up to the entire genome. The Ensembl project...

Researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz, have found that female side-blotched lizards are able to induce different color patterns in their offspring in response to social cues, "dressing" their pr...

OSA symptoms more common among African-American women than Caucasians

OSA affects an estimated 15 million to 20 million Americans, as well as millions more who remain undiagnosed and untreated. Scientific ev...

Breakthrough developments in rheumatoid arthritis reported

...c enzyme comes in contact with arginine, one of 20 common amino acids in proteins. When one of the enzymes is present, nitrogen is removed from the chemical structure of arginine and it converts into citrulline. Laboratories have developed a test to measure for anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide antibod...

Researchers examine carbon capture and storage to combat global warming

...e is extracted from a mix of waste gases. The most common method sends the exhaust through a chimney containing a three-dimensional mesh. As the gas goes up, a chemical solvent drizzles down, soaking up the gas where the two substances meet. The carbon dioxide is then extracted from the liquid and compresse...
