Researchers discover chemical compounds that affect plant growth

...It is helping scientists better understand protein transportation and genetic signaling in a plant's cellular membrane system, which is essential to plant growth, yet is poorly understood. The researchers can now use the compounds they have discovered to identify target pathways and proteins within the endomembran...

The spiny water flea was first found in Lake Ontario in 1982 and by 2003 it had invaded at least 57 inla...

UC researchers discover gene that causes heavy metal poisoning

...that the Slc39a8 gene could be responsible for the transportation not only of cadmium, but also of other nonessential heavy metals such as lead, nickel and mercury," says Dr. Nebert. "Identification and characterization of this gene in mice is a significant breakthrough that will improve our understanding of how he...
