Steps made toward overcoming biological obstacles to cell therapy for cancer

... T cells can recognize the tumor cells and largely ignore the normal cells, but these CD8+ T cells are also held in check inside the body by mechanisms that build up their tolerance to the presence of tumor antigens. They become deficient in sending the signals that lead to tumor-cell killing. "It is precis...

...e area. In either case, Essington says, "We can't ignore the policy implications of this common mechanism of sequentially adding species to what is being fished." In the other nine of the 30 ecosystems the researchers found that high-trophic-level fish were, indeed, disappearing and forcing fishermen to t...

Losing sleep undoes the rejuvenating effects new learning has on the brain

...ttention switching. This suggests that learning to ignore stimuli and rapid attention switching are competing processes, with healthy individuals ignoring familiar stimuli as their primary strategy. It would be interesting to assess whether sleep restriction causes people to lose the ability to screen out e...

Fertility genes discovered at Rugters

...ter an egg, the sperm has to recognize the egg and ignore other sperm or cells in the environment, Singson explained. Then there are interactions needed to get the surface membranes of both sperm and egg to fuse, a critical initial step in fertilization. The results described in the Dec. 20 issue of Curren...

Research shows Europeans prefer environmentally-friendly seafood

It is clear that consumers care greatly about the environmental impacts of the seafood they eat, and are willing to pay more to ensure the fish they consume isn't harming the oceans, " says Oliver Knowles, Greenpeace UK ...

ORNL-led study shows forests thrive with increased CO2 levels

...ioned against viewing these results as a reason to ignore the steadily increasing amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. "Although carbon dioxide fertilization of forests might slow the rate of increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide, a 23 percent increase in productivity is insufficient to stabilize th...

NSF funds probe of the quintessence of surprise

We ignore some sudden noises, while others make us take action. We turn our eyes to look at some moving things -- but not all. Why? A new theory and experimental evidence suggests a novel mathematical explanation of how brains measure "surprise" in a data stre...

Modification of program enables prediction of gene transcription

...nt gene finding systems except for N-SCAN either ignore the UTR splice sites or incorrectly incorporate them into some protein-coding segment, making gene prediction a none-too-sure industry.
