Loss of fruit fly retina protein delays blinding light damage

...eyes reached a point of no return and vision never fully recovered. This point should be longer for other animals, since fruitflies' lifespan is only about 50 days. The researchers are now searching for other proteins that reduce or prevent vision loss after exposure to constant light. They're also studyi...

Scientist discover the cellular roots of graying hair

... They also progressively make errors, turning into fully committed pigment cells in the wrong place within the hair follicle, where they are useless for coloring hair. The new findings won't lead to a scientific alternative to hair dyes any time soon, if ever, even if they do solve a longstanding puzzle ab...

Drilled shells show extinction's lasting effects

...n the Western Atlantic and the ecosystem has yetto fully recover, according to research published this week in thejournal Science . In the seagrass meadows of the Gulf of Mexico, Chicoreus andPhyllonotus marine snails feed on Chione clams by slowly drilling ahole through the shell wall. That process can ...

Mouse brain tumors mimic those in human genetic disorder

...ation or if they appeared only after the tumor was fully developed. The researchers found that by three weeks of age, the mutant mice had about four times the number of small blood vessels in the optic nerves and chiasm as control mice. Similarly, microglia were also found in the nerve and chiasm of mutant...

National Academy news: Water quality improvement in southwestern Pennsylvania

... adequate data hampered the committee's ability to fully evaluate and prioritize the region's water quality problems and their adverse effects, the report says. For example, there is no evidence that southwestern Pennsylvania has experienced any recent disease outbreaks as a result of poor water quality, ...

Weill Cornell team develops fast-acting anthrax vaccine

According to the research, the new vaccine will probably work best when used in combination with an active vaccine. While gene transfer has been used to deliver antibodies in other clinical settings, "to our knowledge this ...

The simple truth: Animal development not as complicated as it seems

...at these organisms took fewer "different steps" to fully mature than predicted by chance. In other words, the development of these animals is simpler than it looks. "It's particularly noteworthy that all four organisms showed the same pattern," Azevedo said. "The sea squirt, a chordate, has a general b...

Dr. Forman's presentation will summarize previous successes in ligand discovery. He will also discuss new technology to aid in the ...

Priming embryonic stem cells to fulfill their promise

... stem cell differentiation is complex and far from fully understood. Scientists are focusing on four types of external inputs known to be involved in triggering the differentiation of stem cells: soluble growth factors, adjacent cells, mechanical forces, and extracellular matrix proteins that form the supp...

Scientists find missing link between whale and its closest relative, the hippo

And while many anthracotheres appear to have been adapted to life in water, all of the youngest fossils of anthracotheres, hippos and cetaceans are aquatic or semi-aquatic. "Our study is the most comple...

The robber crab's transition from sea to land has been accomplished through numerous, and in many cases far-reaching, adaptations. A question not previously addressed is how the...

"Over the last few years it has become increasingly accepted that we have a third system that uses melanopsin and has lain undetected during years of vigorous scientific investigation," said Dr Lucas. "For this latest research,...

Reviewing scientists say proposed conservation measures unlikely to help whales

Ocean sanctuaries are unlikely to fully protect whales, say three independent scientists charged by the International Whaling Commission (IWC) with reviewing their sanctuary program to manage whale populations. In a Policy Forum article forthcoming in the January 28 issue of the journal Sc...
