Research in The FASEB Journal suggests that cannabis exposure may affect DNA-bound proteins, sperm chromatin and have an impact on fertility, embryo development and offspring health.
Several studies have recognized a link between obesity and cancer. New research investigates how tumor cells grow through scavenging very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL) and low-density lipoproteins (LDL), commonly known as the "bad cholesterol," and what mechanisms can be used to reduce the malignant cells' growth.
It's been known for more than a century that acetaminophen is an effective painkiller, but according to a new study, it could also be impeding error-detection in the brain. The research is the first neurological study to look at how acetaminophen could be inhibiting the brain response associated with making errors.
The Zika virus may be associated with an autoimmune disorder that attacks the brain's myelin similar to multiple sclerosis, according to a small study that is being released today.
Some cells are meant to live, and some are meant to die. The linker cell of Caenorhabditis elegans, a tiny worm that is a favored model organism for biologists, is among those destined for termination.
Michael S. Tift, a Ph.D. candidate at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography spoke to Bioscience Technology about how studying the elephant seal may provide insights into the underlying biology behind the protective effects of carbon monoxide, and help guide methods for CO-based therapies in humans.
AMSBIO has released a new 16-page practical guide that provides a detailed overview on how blockers can be used to reduce non-specific binding in immunoassays.
Excessive weight, obesity, aging and population growth drove a nearly four-fold increase in worldwide cases of diabetes over the last quarter-century, affecting 422 million people in 2014, the World Health Organization reported Wednesday.
As white-nose syndrome kills millions of bats across North America, there's a glimmer of hope at hibernation spots where it first struck a decade ago: Some bats in some caves are hanging on.
A tiny juvenile fish. That’s what’s at the center of a big effort to image the brain of a vertebrate organism like never before. An international team hopes to create a new imaging system to study individual neurons in high resolution throughout the entire brain of a freely moving vertebrate.
Researchers have designed a new type of pill that, once swallowed, can attach to the lining of the gastrointestinal tract and slowly release its contents.
Lycopene – the red color in tomatoes – has been shown in a new study to protect cells against the damaging effects of radiation at low oxygen concentrations, and the findings could one day help improve radiation therapy.
Rats fed a diet rich in blueberries saw changes in levels of a gene associated with an increased risk of suicide, suggesting patients who suffer from problems associated with post-traumatic stress disorder could benefit from the fruit.
KROHNE, Inc.'s new OPTIMASS 6400, is an all-new twin bent tube Coriolis mass flowmeter, ideal for standard liquid and gas applications in the chemical and petrochemical, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and energy and power industries.
Pediatric researchers, using high-speed DNA sequencing tools, have identified a new syndrome that causes intellectual disability (ID).
