High blood pressure, low energy -- a recipe for heart failure

... the heart by using a drug that enhances ERR, for example you might enable the heart to better keep pace with its energy requirements." Although preventions and treatments are now available for heart failure due to high blood pressure, almost all of those drugs act outside the heart by dilating blood vess...

Antioxidant overload may underlie a heritable human disease

...reductants. Our study provides the first bona fide example of the role that reductive stress can play in disease. Reductants, sometimes referred to as antioxidants, are elements or compounds that easily give up an electron to become oxidized, while oxidizing agents readily accept electrons. In the body, su...

Computer graphics spills from milk to medicine

...the material is made of, the authors used the milk example to show that the new model can work backwards and determine how much fat and protein a sample of milk contains, based on just a digital picture of the milk. Putting the model in reverse, grocery stores could identify spoiled meats, contaminants or...

New survey documents the headaches of computerized medicine

...eir management can knowingly involve tradeoffs. An example of a CPOE-related tradeoff is the degree to which the extra time physicians must exert to use CPOE (an undesirable consequence) is offset by the increased information physicians find available at the point of care via CPOE making patient visits more...

Parents seeking sex abandon 1 in 3 offspring

...gs are abandoned in this way, making it a puzzling example of childrearing where both parents improve their reproductive success by abandoning the nest. Males and females can mate with up to seven different partners in any one breeding season and frequently vary their attitude to childcare between differen...

Innovative research technique reveals another natural wonder in Yellowstone Park

...mes before this discovery. "This is an excellent example of how metagenic information reveals how little we know about life on Earth," said Weiner. Members of the phylum Acidobacteria have proven very hard to grow in laboratory cultures, which means their ecology and physiology are very poorly understood...

The inside dope

...e improved by a little 'contamination.' Steel, for example is iron with a bit of carbon mixed in. To produce materials for modern electronics, small amounts of impurities are introduced into silicon a process called doping. It is these impurities that enable electricity to flow through the semiconductor and...

Categories of papers will include original papers, reviews, and rapid communications. Editor-in-Chief is Alan Hastings, winner of the 2006 Robert H. MacArthur Award for his outst...

Is nutrient loading a smaller problem than we think?

...ts are greater or equal to those of nutrients. One example they cite takes on the classic model of loss of estuarine seagrass. While common understanding holds that nutrient enrichment leads to epiphytic growth on seagrass, killing the plants by blocking sunlight, cascading trophic effects are likely have ju...

Killing only a few animals won't do any harm -- or will it?

...may happen. Van Kooten and co-workers predict for example that in harvested cannibalistic fish populations, individuals may reach giant sizes, more than double the size of those in unharvested population. Indeed, such giant cannibals seem to occur frequently in heavily fished lakes. Our results are directly...

Study explains how pathogens evolve to escape detection

...the innovative strategies of pathogens. The latest example of this war is a bacterium ( Pseudomonas syringae ) that infects tomatoes by injecting a special protein into the plant's cells and undermines the plant's defense system. "Plant breeders often find that five or six years after their release, resistan...
