OHSU researchers capture cell transmissions on tape for first time
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Billions of tiny transmissions
take place between the cells of our brains every day. This happens whenever nerve cells reach out toward each other and connect by forming structures called synapses. At these synapses, packets of information sent by one cell are received by other ce...

of SIVs have already occurred, virus type- and/or lineage-specific immuno and PCR assays will have to be developed. Such work should receive high priority given the extent of human exposure to different SIV lineages as a result of the expanding bushm...

between neurons. The COX proteins are encoded by separate genes on separate chromosomes and, likewise, have two separate but interdependent functions. COX-1 is responsible for the "day-to-day" production of prostaglandins, while COX-2 is highly regu...

were unknown before 1997. The outbreaks caused by avian flu viruses that jumped to humans this year, designated H5N1 and H7N7, occurred in Hong Kong and the Netherlands, respectively. The H5N1 virus killed a man in Asia, while the H7N7 virus infected...
