Heart responds to fasting by remodeling vital energy-producing components

...tabolism. The response by heart mitochondria might lend a partial explanation to a pattern discerned in studies of ischemic heart patients, who have restricted blood flow to the heart. "While we have to be careful in drawing definitive parallels between mouse lipid dynamics and human lipid dynamics, it is...

'Grubby' research promises environmental/economic benefits

STEPHENVILLE Jeff Tomberlin's research could lend a whole new meaning to the phrase "grub for a living." Tomberlin, a Texas A&M entomologist, is looking into the possibility that black soldier fly larvae "grubs" to the uninitiated could be used to turn livestock manure into high-protein feed. The ...

New insight into people who 'see' colors in letters and numbers

...ception areas. The researchers said their findings lend support to the hypothesis that the condition is due to cross-activation between adjacent brain areas involved in perceiving shapes and colors. Some synesthetes report seeing colors when listening to music, or feeling tactile shapes while tasting food...

Neuroscientists locate 'imaginary' colors

...ego and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, lend support to the hypothesis that cross-activation of adjacent brain regions is the mechanism underlying synesthesia. "We specifically designed our experiment to test the cross-activation hypothesis we initially advanced in 2001," said V.S. Ramachandr...

Autism linked to mirror neuron dysfunction

...hology. The current findings, the researchers say, lend substantial support to the hypothesis. The UC San Diego team collected EEG data in 10 males with autism spectrum disorders who were considered "high-functioning" (defined as having age-appropriate verbal comprehension and production and IQs above 8...

Cancer exploits the body's wound-healing process

...larger angiogenesis picture," says Weinberg. "They lend precision and specificity to that overall scheme." Orimo now plans to further investigate this process by disturbing the interactions between the stromal cells and the cancer cells, work that may yield new therapeutic insights....

Cancer drug target Chk1 may also be source of drug resistance

...the activity of the Chk1 protein. "These findings lend strong support to the idea that inactivation of Chk1 contributes to the antitumor activity of CPT by allowing cells bearing damaged DNA to progress through the cell cycle, leading to an unsuccessful and often lethal attempt to undergo cell division,...

Zebrafish may hold key to improved cancer research

...aboratory almost anywhere, they reproduce quickly, lend themselves well to genetic manipulation, can efficiently test high numbers of possible drug therapies, and might tell you in three months what it would take two years to find out with other animal models." "This low cost, efficient research should sp...

Postmortem data support link between gene and schizophrenia

...reviously linked to schizophrenia. These results lend more support to the idea that CAPON is involved in schizophrenia. Given the cumulative evidence, it seems clear that further study of CAPON is justified. The findings by Brzustowicz and colleagues suggest that we need to learn more about the short ve...

Researchers: Deep sleep short-circuits brain's grid of connectivity

...nsin team are the first of their kind. The results lend support to the idea that consciousness depends on the ability of the brain to integrate information. In other words, consciousness rests on the ability of the various regions of the brain to talk to one another. In the brain, messages are relayed alo...

Double-trouble: Cells with duplicate genomes can trigger tumors

... produce tetraploid cells. Together, these papers lend experimental support to Boveri's ideas that errors in cell division contribute to the development of cancer....

Not so different

...s. Nikolay Kolev and Joan Steitz (Yale University) lend new insight into the histone pre-mRNA processing machinery, and reveal the surprising involvement of common factors between 3'-end processing of poly(A)-lacking (ie. histone) and poly(A)-containing mRNAs. This paper identifies the long sought-after f...

UCSD study shows 'junk' DNA has evolutionary importance

NC State researchers redesign life for Mars and beyond

... furiosus and other extremophiles might be able to lend their beneficial traits to plants sometime in the future. "This is very fundamental research," Boss said. "If we could add new genes to plants, wecould potentially make the plants more resistant to extreme conditions such as drought andextreme temper...

Flipped genetic sequences illuminate human evolution and disease

...een the human and chimp genomes. These differences lend insight into how primates evolved, including traits specific to humans. The researchers published their findings in the October 28, 2005, issue of the journal Public Library of Science Genetics (PLoS Genetics). The paper was published early online. ...

Missing fossil link 'Dallasaurus' found

...roups through flooding or drought, situations that lend themselves fairly well to more complete preservation and conservation of their bones, and much slower deterioration. Mosasaur fossils, in contrast, are rarely found in large groupings, and are only found in areas once covered by seas. Remains were qu...

Gene loops

Drs. Athar Ansari and Michael Hampsey (UMDNJ) lend new insight into the mechanism of gene transcription by the RNA polymerase II in the yeast. The researchers report a physical juxtaposition of the promoter and terminator regions of the BUD3 and SEN1 genes of S. cerevisiae. This transcription-depende...

Oncogenic role for Bcl-3

...rt Baldwin and colleagues (UNC School of Medicine) lend new insight into an alternate mechanism of p53 inactivation in tumor cells. The researchers found that the putativeoncoprotein Bcl-3, which is expressed in some leukemias and solidtumors, potently suppresses p53 activation through a mechanism thatinv...
