Expert to provide update after 'worst tomato virus' hits California

...marily by the whitefly, Bemisia tabaci. It spreads quickly from plant to plant within minutes; especially if the whitefly population is high. "This is undeniably the worst tomato virus there is," said Gilbertson. In other areas where the virus is present, yield losses as great as 100 percent have been repo...

Purdue-IU researchers explore new method for early disease diagnosis

...dge of pediatric metabolic disorders allowed us to quickly advance this technology," he said. "We were able to evaluate the accuracy of the technique by testing it on samples known to contain certain concentrations of various markers." This method of analysis, called metabolomics, involves the simultaneou...

...ssor Pearson. "We can now examine the whole genome quickly to produce great results - something that couldnt have been done at all a few years ago. This study demonstrates just how important it is to invest in a healthy lifestyle to help protect your heart, especially if you think your family history might p...

Study explains how pathogens evolve to escape detection

...come susceptible because pathogens can evolve very quickly to overcome plant defenses," said Gregory Martin, Cornell professor of plant pathology, a scientist at the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research (BTI) on the Cornell campus and the senior author of the research paper, published in the July 19 i...

Jefferson scientist's patent dramatically improves

...ellylike gels, and smaller DNA molecules move more quickly than larger ones as the current passes through. The researchers found, after much experimentation, that lithium boric acid would be a better buffer solution for the process than current 30-year-old methods. A process that normally takes around one ...

...speed. Each athlete was asked to click in a box as quickly as possible only if the word red was displayed on the computer screen in a red color, not if the word appeared in the color green or blue. After the season started, a number of the tested athletes ended up sustaining noncontact ACL injuries. These ...

Clues to future evolution of HIV come from African green monkeys

...Some of the trends we see give new evidence on how quickly or slowly these changes take place." Citing some laboratory research that suggests HIVs from the late 1980s are more virulent than HIVs from the 2000s, Worobey added, "For HIV, the really cool thing is that these changes can take place on a more ra...

EPA foregoes opportunity to improve nanotechnology oversight

...with nanotechnology. It is essential that EPA move quickly to recognize the novel biological and ecological characteristics of nanoscale materials. It can do this only by using the new uses provisions of TSCA, a subject not mentioned in the EPAs inventory document. With the approach outlined by EPA and becau...

White blood cells are picky about sugar

... their response to the two sugars. The neutrophils quickly engulfed many of the beads coated with beta-1,6-glucan, but only a few of those covered in beta-1,3-glucan. Previous studies indicated that blood serum (basically blood minus cells) helps neutrophils recognize their enemies, so Rubin-Bejerano decid...

Researchers use new approach to predict protein function

...team performed computerized docking experiments to quickly evaluate whether the unknown proteins were likely to bind to any of a vast library of potential target molecules, or substrates. Determining which substrate binds to a given protein is vital to understanding the proteins function. This study descri...

MIT, BU team builds viruses to combat harmful 'biofilms'

...sible with new technologies for synthesizing genes quickly and cheaply. We hope in a few years, it will be easy to create libraries of phage that we know have a good chance of working a priori because we know so much about their inner-workings, says Lu. Synthetic biology also makes it possible to control ...

Neutral evolution has helped shape our genome

...y changes in the genome will either get eliminated quickly or spread to the whole population quickly. Katsanis proposes that numts, being neutral, were generally at low levels in ancient mammals, but during the primate emergence 54 million years ago, they accumulated and spread through the small early prim...

Penn researchers discover how microRNAs control protein synthesis

...oteins to begin. However, the assembly of proteins quickly comes to a standstill when the miRNA-Ago2 complex binds near the back end of a messenger RNA. By analyzing the amino acid sequence of Ago2, Kiriakidou and others uncovered a similarity with the cap-binding domain of the EIF4E protein that offered a c...

Rapid evolution of defense genes in plants may produce hybrid incompatibility

... bacteria. The cells invaded by the pathogens are quickly marked by the plant for death so that the microbe cannot use them to replicate and spread to the rest of the plant. These types of genes have been shown to evolve rapidly, giving plants the capability to adapt to changing conditions and pathogens. ...

Structural studies had suggested that in a process similar to threading a needle the channels flexible head feeds through a small portal and blocks the central pore of the channel. Wang and Slesinger used the new unnatural technology as a...

Nanoparticles hitchhike on red blood cells: a potential new method for drug delivery

...owever, suffer from one major limitation: they are quickly removed from the blood, sometimes in minutes, rendering them ineffective in delivering drugs. The research team, led by Samir Mitragotri, a professor of chemical engineering, and Elizabeth Chambers, a recent doctoral graduate, found that nanoparticl...
