...ion in each city. Just over 6000 kilograms of meat moves through these seven markets each month, Brashares told the Society forConservation Biology when it met in San Jose, California, on 28 June. This probably underestimates the international trade, itself only a tiny fraction of the wild meat hunted in A...

Discovery of agile molecular motors could aid in treating motor neuron diseases

...nd that a "local delivery" motor, termed myosin V, moves cargo with a variable path short distances along another type of cellular track called actin. This flexibility could help myosin V navigate crowded regions of the cell where the actin filaments criss-cross and where other cellular components would ot...

Computer card game detects cognitive changes

...ughout a game and calculates the minimal number of moves to complete it. The solver is a "dynamic algorithm that is solving the game at every moment in time, and it knows the minimal number of steps you would need to complete it," Jimison said. "We compare this 'optimal slope' to how the individual users a...

Whether in mice or men, all cells age the same, Stanford study finds

... time, when the owner picks up the welcome mat and moves out. Once that process kicks off, the decay happens as a matter of course. The homeowners in tortoise cells stick around for hundreds of years delaying the decay, while those in fly cells move out within weeks. Although Kim's work doesn't identify ...

Super blackcurrants with boosted vitamin C

...in C is produced in blackcurrant bushes and how it moves throughout the plant. Using different strains of blackcurrant plant the team can compare and analyse how the vitamin accumulates in the blackcurrant fruit as well as the limiting factors. To date the research has discovered that starch that accumu...

...ver cells. After it leaves the liver, the parasite moves back into the bloodstream to infect and kill red blood cells. The rupturing of blood cells causes the worst symptoms of the infection, which can be deadly to children, pregnant women, and others with weak immune systems. After leaving this trail of...

In both headwater and larger Vermont streams, USGS found that there is a common source of mercury and methylmercury--most likely from forest litter and ...

Uranium 'pearls' before slime

... The pearl is uranium dioxide, or uraninite, which moves much less freely in soil than its soluble counterpart, a groundwater-contamination threat at nuclear waste sites. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that uranium contaminates more than 2,500 billion liters of groundwater nationwide; over the p...

The researchers then measure the brightness of the two dyes simultaneously. The changing ratio of the two intensities indicates the relative movement of the two dyes, and th...

The fish is a broadcast spawner, meaning its eggs are fertilized in the water. After fertilization, the embryos develop on the river bottom and, once...

UC Davis researchers move biotechnology closer to replacing electronic pacemakers

...um," Li said. According to Li, the current study moves research beyond using animal models such as mice and rats, whose hearts can beat up to 600 times per minute. Large animals such as pigs make for far more realistic models because their anatomy and physiology, including average heart rates of about 70...
