Proteaceae spread by continental drift and transoceanic dispersal

...rica, for example, the spectacular genus Protea is truly Gondwanan, but 250 species from other genera that occur in the fynbos vegetation (literally, fine leaved shrubs) of the highly diverse south-western Cape biodiversity hotspot are much younger, and have Australian relatives says Nigel Barker of Rhodes...

How cells change the pace of their steps

...ater than the weight of the cell. These forces are truly amazing, said Lasheras. Its comparable to a 200-pound athlete repeatedly lifting a 200,000-pound barbell. These Dictyostelium cells constantly maintain their cytoskeleton under this strong tension, although they periodically increase and decrease the...

'Preconditioning' helps protect brain's blood vessels from stroke

...ity. And yet scientists have still not developed a truly effective means of treating these attacks. "We knew that preconditioning -- giving the brain a slight noxious stimulus beforehand -- can strengthen brain cells against damage from a larger insult later on. This phenomenon occurs naturally in the hu...

Genomic analysis uncovers new targets for HIV vaccine

A decade ago, Arabidopsis was widely adopted by plant scientists as an easily manipulated model for other plants because it is simpl...

UCLA researchers show that culture influences brain cells

...res, as long as such cross-cultural encounters are truly possible. All in all, our research suggests that with mirror neurons our brain mirrors people, not simply actions. Thus, it appears that neural systems supporting memory, empathy and general cognition encodes information differently depending on wh...
