How roots control plant shoots

...dy shows we shouldn't." Manipulating the process someday might allow scientists to genetically engineer crops and other plants to be more productive in dry conditions for example, so that crops could keep producing abundant leaves in a drought by irrigating them while overriding the genetic signal that no...

Emory chemists develop bacteria that may help decaffeinate coffee

...make on their own, resulting in molecules that may someday benefit humans. The Emory team reasoned that if a bacterium needs a particular molecule to survive, it has a strong incentive to help make it, so the goal was to make bacteria depend on a molecule that they wouldn't normally need. In their first majo...

A new culprit in depression?

... differences. Akil also says it might be possible someday to study FGF differences in living people, if scientists can develop tools to measure levels of the FGF receptors using brain imaging such as positron emission tomography, or PET. In addition to Evans and Akil, the study's authors are: from the Unive...

Normal cells in tumors may aid cancer growth

...and spread. If that proves to be true, someone may someday develop a drug that targets stroma cells and prevents the cancer from spreading." Eng and her colleagues analyzed 134 tissue samples from invasive breast tumors. They examined stromal cells known as fibroblasts, the major component of the tumor...

Globetrotting pollutants turn up on Toronto street

... in the Sahara in Toronto air, findings that could someday give regulatory agencies an idea of who is contributing to the pollutants found in urban air. "It's a bit of detective work," says Greg Evans, a professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry. "We happened to know when that...

OHSU study: Bacterial switching mechanism key to survival

...ngs, published recently in the journal Cell, could someday lead to the development of a new class of drugs that disrupt a crucial mechanism that bacteria use to adapt to available energy sources, and essentially starve these pathogens to death. Using X-ray crystallography to examine the three-dimensional str...

UF scientist: 'Brain' in a dish acts as autopilot, living computer

As living computers, they may someday be used to fly small unmanned airplanes or handle tasks that are dangerous for humans, such as search-and-rescue missions or bomb damage assessments. "We're interested in studying how brains compute," said Thomas DeMarse, the UF professor of biomed...

Diabetic damage to eyes, heart, nerves, kidneys may be explained by controversial theory

Gene expression profiling aids in ovarian cancer prognosis

...of a powerful prognostic tool such as the OCPP may someday enable clinicians to identify those patients most appropriate for clinical trials [of investigative therapies]," writes Cannistra. "It may also provide insights into why tumors frequently develop resistance to chemotherapy, and may eventually permit ...

Chicken genome analysis will benefit human health and agriculture

...ment Station at MSU, said the sequenced genome may someday allow poultry producers to know why certain chickens lay more eggs than others or why certain broiler chickens may have less fat. They then can identify commercial chickens with the same genetic predisposition to these desirable traits. "If we know ...

Purdue scientists hunt for 'secret X' to treat liver cancer

...i's team has shown that work with the X gene could someday lead to liver cancer treatments, and managing the gene's effects with drugs could be a viable approach." This approach could mean that liver cancer could be treated at least in part without chemotherapy, Andrisani said, making for far less o...

Desires for fatty foods and alcohol share a chemical trigger

...l consumption and also suggests the possibility of someday creating a drug that blocks galanin in order to fight alcoholism. However, Hoebel noted that such an achievement would be a long way off, because it is hard to make drugs that cross from the blood into the brain and interact with neuropeptide recepto...

Shots fired at Bayonne range prove smart gun technology works

...s and computerized parts. Recce sees his invention someday also being used in other applications--perhaps the yoke of a plane or a car's steering wheel. Also in 2003, NJIT signed an agreement with Metal Storm, which owns a patent for its Electronic Firing System that can be used in a handgun. Metal Stor...

NJIT professor discovers new mixing method for microchip-sized labs

...nd speedier way to mix liquids, which in turn will someday produce better and safer medications. "Everybody looks at creating turbulence in three dimensions to mix liquids," said team leader Nadine Aubry, PhD, Jacobus distinguished professor and chair of the mechanical engineering department at NJIT. "We tr...

$6.7 million for bionic war on disabilities

...on to further develop technology that we hope will someday help blind individuals see, allow paraplegics to stand and eventually walk, and let people with vocal cord problems speak," says Richard Normann, a professor of bioengineering and ophthalmology who is helping spearhead the project. The money is in ...

Researchers tease out one critical role of tumor-suppressor gene

...wing how Rb works in normal cells could help us to someday understand how tumor-suppressor genes function in tumor development and growth." Leone was part of a team of researchers led by Antonio Iavarone, a professor with the Institute for Cancer Genetics at Columbia University. The researchers studied red b...

Powerful X-ray beams at Argonne, new electronic flight simulator

...ot only helps explain how insects fly but also may someday aid in understanding human heart function. The researchers, from the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), Caltech, and the University of Vermont, merged two distinct technologies, intense x-ray beams and electronic flight simulators, to study how ...

Intelligence in men and women is a gray and white matter

...an men. Studies such as these, Haier and Jung add, someday may help lead to earlier diagnoses of brain disorders in males and females, as well as more effective and precise treatment protocols to address damage to particular regions in the brain. For this study, UCI and UNM combined their respective neuroima...
