Secrets of the whale riders

...ring the callosities create distinct markings that stand out against the whales' dark skin, making it possible for scientists to distinguish individual whales. "Their lifestyle is analogous to that of lice in that they live on the skin of the host and they eat sloughed skin," Seger says. Each whale louse...

"However, depending on one's perspective, this particular slope can incline in either direction. Thus, this is exactly where we wish to be on this difficult ethical issue."

New lab research may help those deafened by immune system attack

...SNHL. The University, Carey and several colleagues stand to profit if tests or treatments based on these patents are developed. The development of a clinical test for patient antibody to IESCA will take time, Carey says. In previous papers, Carey and his colleagues have shown that IESCA has about the same ...

More proof of woodpecker revealed in audio recordings

...lve about this bird," said Fitzpatrick. "But we do stand by our evidence that at least one was alive in 2004 and early 2005." Fitzpatrick added that the research team knew of a few of the recordings when they released video evidence of the ivory-billed woodpecker in April 2005, but they had not conducted ...

Happy and passive means more productive animals

...said. "They have often seen it when they thinned a stand of trees, it had much better yields. The key to making this system work for increased productivity is tracking the pedigree of plants and animals to know which ones are most likely to be passive." Muir also is director of the Molecular Evolutionary G...

Prevalence of infection in a population can shape parasite virulence

...titors and for an infected mosquito, at least, you stand a better chance of getting your wings and leaving the natal lagoon if more of your larval neighbors are infected too. To study the interplay between parasitism and intraspecific competition, Bedhomme et al. worked with the yellow fever mosquito ...

Women feel more pain than men, research shows

Other research by the Pain Management Unit has looked at the relationship between gender differences in anxiety sensitivity and pain. Anxiety sensitivity is the tendency...

New study finds how cells with damaged DNA alert the immune system

... a long-term memory of prior invaders. These cells stand ready to find and destroy cells infected by viruses before the virus can spread. "We don't have direct information about the role of the DNA damage pathway in regulating immune responses to infectious diseases, but given what we have shown here, it i...

Size doesn't matter

...aul's new research shows that it is microRNAs that stand between a cell's survival and its death at the hands of Hid, Grim and Reaper. The microRNAs bind to the messenger RNA of the death genes and prevent their proteins from being made. But when the microRNAs are blocked, Hid, Grim and Reaper proteins are...

World Ocean Day: How satellites safeguard our waters

Additional, operational applications include marine routin...

Shift of weather patterns necessitates rethinking of reforestation methods

...d landowners can plant fewer trees to get the same stand density. On wet years, when a high percentage of bare root seedlings do survive, landowners find themselves paying for costly thinnings, Taylor said. Taylor's research is being conducted near the Texas A&M University Research and Extension Center a...

Cure for common cold will need to wiggle to work, scientists say

"But seeing these molecules in motion may help improve our approach to drug development and has revealed some fundamental details about the workings of viruses as...

Double triumph in stem cell quest

...ean member of the team. But if Verlinsky's claims stand up, there might be a much easier way to create matching ESCs. His method starts with an existing human ESC line. The nuclei containing the DNA of the ESCs are removed by spinning them in a centrifuge. Verlinsky would not reveal the details of his tec...

Joslin hosts conference on diabetes in American Indian/Alaska Natives, May 16-19 in Denver
