Study begins to reveal clues to the cause and progression of sepsis
...ple components may yield better results. No one really
knows why some people develop sepsis following an infection, said Scott Somers, Ph.D., who oversees sepsis grants at the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, which partially funded the work. This large study gives us a much clearer picture...

...empirically to find out how well they predict what really
happens," Holland said. Traditional theory of such mutualistic interactions leads to predictions of unbounded population growth or instability and eventual doom due to one species overexploiting another. These predictions clearly don't square with ...

exciting. This new technology has allowed us to see where the seals go and understand their behaviour in the context of different characteristics of water in the Southern Ocean. The majority of animals from South Georgia fed within the Antarctic Circ...
Role of thyroid hormones in slumber under investigation at Rutgers
...ormones do so much more than regulate weight. Were really
just beginning to learn the true extent of how these hormones impact our overall health, Martin says. The research underway at Rutgers-Camden will build on earlier findings by providing specific measurements of the levels of thyroid hormones and t...
In a first, Einstein scientists discover the dynamics of transcription in living mammalian cells
...ding was how inefficient the transcription process really
is, particularly during its first two stages, says Dr. Singer. It turns out that only one percent of polymerases that bind to the gene actually remain on to help in synthesizing an RNA molecule. Transcription is probably inefficient for a reason. Wer...

approach things from a mechanistic point of view," she said. "We can trace signaling events in the brain and see how brain areas controlling sex-specific behaviors are connected to each other."...

need to look at the big picture of ecosystems and not just focus on trees when implementing regulations aimed at encouraging the growth of healthy forests." The study also has implications for large areas of the West ravaged by forest fires in rec...
Coelacanth fossil sheds light on fin-to-limb evolution
...ecord to the first members of that group, they are really
different and very diverse. Until now, many biologists have looked at lungfish as a primitive model of the evolution of tetrapods. Our fossil shows that what weve been using to define a primitive state is actually very specialized, Friedman said, w...
