Insect population growth likely accelerated by warmer climate

...servation. Many studies have shown that insects readily adapt to the temperature of their environment. For example, those living in deserts easily tolerate high temperatures but are much less tolerant of cold temperatures than insects living in mountains. Now UW biology researchers have found that insect ...

The power behind insect flight: Researchers reveal key kinetic component

...rentiate fast and slow muscle fiber types are more readily apparent." In general, myosin breaks down adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the chemical fuel consumed by muscles, and converts it into force and motion. To do this, myosin splits ATP into two compounds, adenine diphosphate (ADP) and phosphate. Each com...

UC Davis scientists' groundbreaking research: Mate-attracting chemicals

... said. Unlike fruit flies, silkworm moths are not readily amenable to genetic manipulation. Kimbrell said Drosophila is an excellent model for genetic manipulation, but the fruit fly does not smell pheromones as strongly as the silkworm moth. "We used the powerful Gal4-UAS system of Drosophila to produce...

New biochip helps study living cells, may speed drug development

...d and could be mass-produced in the future. Such a readily available chip could record reams more data than patch-clamping, he said. Ion channels and pumps establish a difference in electrical potential across a cell's membrane, which cells use to create energy and transfer electrical signals. By quickly a...

Structure of enzyme offers treatment clues for diabetes, Alzheimer's

...e larger molecules, the proteins IDE degrades most readily fit neatly within this chamber. Negative electrical charges on their outer surfaces help to align them with the positive charges on one inner surface of the chamber. Once they are in place, the enzyme slices them multiple times into tiny pieces, wh...

Software tool helps protect Nation's drinking water: Now available in all 50 states

...s PNW Research Station. Recognizing the need for a readily available, single source of information, Ryan led an interagency effort to develop ICWater (pronounced "icy water"), a tool designed to help incident commanders protect drinking water in an emergency. He serves as the effort's overall task manager an...

'Sewer gas' induces suspended animation without decreasing blood pressure

... and other naturally hibernating species much more readily than other species, including humans, Ichinose said. The researchers intend to extend the study to bigger animals, such as sheep and pigs to see if they have the same cardiac and hemodynamic reaction. "If the same thing happens in those species that ...

Rearing an army to save wheat

... help us have the ability to have parasitoids more readily available for future efforts," Weaver said. "Right now, we have to locate a large population of these beneficial insects before we can redistribute them. If we can reliably have them available at a known location, we could do our job much more effici...

Super chow, laced with semi-synthetic vitamin E derivative, inhibited spread of cancer in mice

...cancer that is similar to human breast cancer that readily metastasizes. They also looked at how well -TEA would affect tumor growth if incorporated into the food ("chow") that the mice ate. They found that injecting V-TOS or V-TEA into the peritoneal cavity of the mice reduced the average volume of tumors...

Researchers announce results of study on genetic variation in Parkinson's disease

Gene offers new lead in cleft lip and palate research

...aas. "But with the genomic resources that are now readily available, we can get answers in a matter of weeks or months and, just as importantly, we spend a greater proportion of our time thinking through the biology rather than worrying why an assay isn't working." With more tools and data to sift through...

How the brain keeps emotions at bay

This resolution represented an anticipation by the subjects' brains from the first image that they could resolve the conflict depicted in the second image As the researchers scanned...

Structure determined for key molecular complex involved in long-term gene storage

...ophisticated mechanisms for keeping selected genes readily available for use while other genes are kept securely stored away for long periods of time, sometimes forever. Candidate genes for such long-term storage include those required only for early development and proliferation, potentially dangerous genes...

New catalyst removes harmful perchlorate from groundwater

...ts of perchlorate exposure. Because perchlorate is readily soluble in water, it can be transported vast distances in groundwater or rivers. A plume of contaminated groundwater from a manufacturing plant near Las Vegas, for example, reached the Colorado River and spread throughout the Southwest. Cleanup could...

High-value chemicals produced from ethanol feedstocks could boost biorefinery economics

...ferent geographic locations, depending on what was readily available," Eckert noted. "In the Southeast, we have abundant forest resources. In the West, sources would include sawgrass, corn stovers and similar plant materials. In the United Kingdom, there is strong interest in producing fuels from municipal...

Empty nesters can't let go

...glings to an area that contained a large amount of readily divisible food. For example, the call was not given when an adult caught a scorpion, a large item that would be difficult to share, but was commonly made when an adult found a termite nest, as it contained many individual prey items. The fledglings...
