An important model in studying human disease, the non-coding RNA of the canine genome is an essential starting point for evolutionary and biomedical studies, according to a new study.
A team of researchers have gained knowledge about a key protein that enables greater control and regeneration of blood stem cells, leading to new strategies to control the growth of these cells and making enhanced numbers for transplantation possible.
Prior Scientific's HZP series of adjustable rigid post mounts provide an affordable, simple, flexible and stable solution for electrophysiology applications.
Why does one person who tries cocaine get addicted, while another might use it and then leave it alone? Why do some people who kick a drug habit manage to stay clean, while others relapse? And why do some families seem more prone to addiction than others? The road to answering these questions may have a lot to do with specific genetic factors that vary from individual to individual, a new study in rats suggests.
With one drug to shut down its progression and another to undo its damage, plus a worldwide effort stalking the origins of multiple sclerosis, MS doesn’t stand a chance.
Scientists showed how an FDA-approved drug boosts the health of brain cells by limiting their energy use. Like removing unnecessary lighting from a financially strapped household to save on electricity bills, the drug--called rapamycin--prolongs the survival of diseased neurons by forcing them to reduce protein production to conserve cellular energy.
The next generation of vaccines may soon see the light of day, because researchers have discovered a completely new and simple method which sets new standards for the development of vaccines.
Fragile X syndrome (FXS) is the most common genetically inherited cause of intellectual disability in humans. New research shows how the hormone insulin -- usually associated with diabetes -- is involved in the daily activity patterns and cognitive deficits in the fruitfly model of FXS, according to a new study.
A five-year study by an international team has found a way of 'reversing' symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's - using fruit flies as test subjects.
Toronto-based biotech startup, Ranomics, has launched a database that for the first time, provides functional studies on the impact of 2,000 variants of BRCA1, which is a gene associated with hereditary breast and ovarian cancers.
Steute Industrial Controls offers a comprehensive line of wireless, batteryless limit switches. These wireless limit switches feature an internal electrodynamic energy generator, that require no battery. Displacement of the actuator generates power to send a uniquely coded signal to one or more compatible, easily-programmed receivers.
Could bacteria in your gut be used to cure or prevent neurological conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety or even depression? Researchers think that's a strong possibility.
Researchers have found that dopamine - a brain chemical involved in learning, motivation and many other functions - also has a direct role in representing or encoding movement. The finding could help researchers better understand dopamine's role in movement-related disorders such as Parkinson's disease.
Researchers have devised a new set of proteins that can be customized to bind arbitrary RNA sequences, making it possible to image RNA inside living cells, monitor what a particular RNA strand is doing, and even control RNA activity.
