Bovine genome completed

...chers can now begin analyzing the bovine genome to uncover more information about individual genes and their effect on important traits in cattle. The first draft was based on DNA taken from a Hereford, a breed of cattle used in beef production and was produced by sequencing the genome 3.3 times. The final t...

Muscle-building hand-grips aid systolic blood pressure, carotid AD, endothelial function

...rs for cardiovascular disease (CVD), as well as to uncover some of the underlying mechanisms. Both studies used similar methodology and isometric handgrip (IHG) exercise three times a week for eight weeks at 30% of maximal voluntary contraction. IHG's effect on carotid distensibility Adrienne Visocchi led...

After flu exposure, mild exercise protects mature mice from dying

...sing regularly, as well as studies that to try and uncover the overall protective effect and its mechanisms. Areas that they'll be studying include: lung histopathology, cytokine gene and protein expression in the lung, and possible development of flu-specific immune cells. At the moment, the laboratory also...

...importance for this. The technology enables one to uncover all the differences between the proteome of a sick person and that of a healthy person, and between the proteome of a patient who reacts positively to a drug and of a patient who is not helped by it. Proteomics can also provide insigh...

ENCODE consortium publishes scientific strategy

...s. The ENCODE researchers also anticipate they may uncover additional functional elements that have yet to be recognized. "Creating this monumental reference work will help us mine and fully utilize the human genome sequence. Such knowledge will lead to a far deeper understanding of human biology and stimula...

New genomic method can identify disease-causing genes

...rait data. The technique also has the potential to uncover currently unknown genetic factors contributing to a host of different diseases. Roche scientists first published a computational method for mouse genome analysis in the June 8, 2001 issue of Science. That method predicted regions of a mouse chr...

Potential new oncogene may be missing link in cancer-causing chain

...e activity of this signaling pathway," Bu says. To uncover LRP6's role in cancer, Bu's team took slow-growing cancer cells and altered the LRP6 gene so that it made more of the protein. They found that the cancer cells began proliferating more rapidly as a result. When the researchers introduced these aggres...

UO study is first to link histamine receptors to heat stress

EUGENE, Ore. -- Brett Wong is on a mission to help uncover the mechanism that regulates our ability to withstand heat stress. The goal is to help improve survival rates among those who suffer the most during heat waves: the elderly and people with conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. The award-winn...

Declining fish supply linked to wildlife consumption in West Africa, Science study reports

...nked to bad fishing years. "I wondered if I could uncover a signal linking fish supply to wildlife declines and the bushmeat trade," said Brashares. While scientists had previously considered this possibility, there were no clear data linking fish supply to terrestrial conservation issues at large scales. ...

Ancient fossil offers new clues to brown bears past

...by Matheus and the Oxford lab using ancient DNA to uncover the population structure of ancient brown bears in Beringia. "One thing that earlier study could not explain was the ancestry of modern brown bears in the southern part of their range, in places like southern Alberta, British Columbia, Montana, and...

Chicken genome analysis will benefit human health and agriculture

...The chicken genome sequence is expected to help us uncover genes that enhance natural disease resistance in birds. Then we can see if those same genes are in humans." Widely used in biomedical research, the chicken is an important model for vaccine production and the study of embryology and developmen...

Children's Hospital Boston launches major genetic study of autism

...l activity triggers them. These investigations may uncover other genes and biochemical pathways that underlie autism. Children and families enrolled in the Children's study also will be invited to take part in research at MIT's Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences. Study participants will be tested f...

Solving the mechanism of Rett Syndrome

...oprecipitation-combined loop assay, and used it to uncover a remarkable arrangement of chromatin loops in the Dlx5/Dlx6 neighborhood. In wild-type mice, they found that MeCP2 is required for the formation of a loop of silent chromatin between the Dlx5 and Dlx6 genes, by bringing together two seque...

Vollum Institute discovery may unlock human genome

...allenge to exploiting the human genome has been to uncover the relationships between identified genes and to understand how complex patterns of gene expression take place. But the Goodman lab's discovery, Ginty said, will help scientists understand how transcription factors coordinate complex genetic pattern...

Researchers tease out one critical role of tumor-suppressor gene

...f the gene in a cancer cell. This may also help us uncover the mechanisms that cause mutations in other tumor-suppressing genes." Leone and Iavarone conducted the study with Emerson King and Anna Lasorella, both with Columbia University, and Xu-Ming Dai and E. Richard Stanley, both with the Albert Einstein C...

Anti-seizure drugs slow aging in worms

...rms' lives by 47 percent. The group then sought to uncover the underlying mechanism for the effect of the anticonvulsants. It was apparent that the drugs did not mimic the anti-aging effects of caloric restriction, because the worms had abundant food and looked well-fed. The researchers also demonstrated tha...

Chimpanzees show quality of relationship drives sense of fairness
