The death of 100 birds in the San Francisco Bay Area has baffled wildlife officials who say the feathers of the birds were coated with a mysterious substance that looks and feels like rubber cement.
Haemoplasmas are a group of blood borne bacteria found in a wide range of mammals, including domestic and wild cats, and can cause severe anaemia. The findings of a new study have significantly advanced researchers’ knowledge of immunity for these pathogens.
A new study has revealed important details of a molecular signaling system in the brain that is involved in the control of body weight and metabolism.
The human brain’s complexity makes it extremely challenging to study.
EPA registered Hype-Wipe and Mini Hype-Wipe bleach towelettes are the perfect one-step disinfectant wipes for most centrifuges and glucometers.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has been studied for many years, but there are still many more questions than answers. For example, some research into the brain functions of individuals with autism spectrum have found a lack of synchronization ('connectivity') between different parts of the brain that normally work in tandem.
The ability of proteins to function and interact with other molecules properly often depends on their three-dimensional configuration, which can be changed through the addition or subtraction of sugar chains.
Wildlife biologists tracking a tumor-causing virus first diagnosed in eastern wild turkeys five years ago have found the virus is far more widespread - but less deadly - than expected.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, with collaborators in Korea and Scotland, have identified a novel signaling pathway critical to the immune response of cells associated with the initiation of allergic asthma.
These factors may not be enough to finally end the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.
By uncovering the action of two naturally occurring hormones, scientists may have discovered a way to assist in the shedding of excess fat.
Patients with sickle cell disease often suffer from painful attacks known as vaso-occlusive crises, during which their sickle-shaped blood cells get stuck in tiny capillaries, depriving tissues of needed oxygen. Blood transfusions can sometimes prevent such attacks, but there are currently no good ways to predict when a vaso-occlusive crisis, which can last for several days, is imminent.
A mystery kidney disease is killing Sri Lankan farmers. The first cases surfaced some two decades ago in the country's North Central province, the main rice-producing area. Since then, the disease has killed up to an estimated 20,000 people on the Indian Ocean island nation.
The Thermo Scientific small benchtop centrifuge delivers, in a compact footprint, the flexibility to adapt to evolving clinical and research needs alike, including clinical chemistry, cell culture, microbiology and hematology.
The antibody response from an HIV vaccine trial in Thailand was made possible by a genetic trait carried over in humans from an ancient ancestry with monkeys and apes.
