A study from investigators in the Sloan Kettering Institute reveals how a protein called GRP94, which is normally a 'good guy' in the cell, turns bad when it has a sugar molecule added to it.
The term 'morning sickness' is misleading and should instead be described as nausea and sickness in pregnancy, argue researchers led by the University of Warwick who have demonstrated that these symptoms can occur at any time of the day -- not just the morning.
In a study published recently in Ecology and Evolution, an international team of researchers focused on what can happen to ocean ecosystems when fishing pressure increases or decreases, and how this differs between tropical to temperate marine ecosystems. The team, led by Elizabeth Madin, researcher at the Hawai'i Institute of Marine Biology in the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology, found ecosystems do not respond universally to fishing.
Australian researchers have shown for the first time that a new drug used to treat breast cancer patients damages the store of immature eggs in the ovaries of mice. Authors of the study published in Human Reproduction journal say fertility counselling should be considered for young women who may be about to be treated with olaparib.
Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine uncover how mutations in the human gene CLN6 can lead to a form of Batten disease.
The decline of the Western bumblebee is likely not limited to one culprit but, instead, due to several factors that interact such as pesticides, pathogens, climate change and habitat loss.
Scientists have devised deep-learning and other approaches that dramatically reduce image-analysis times by orders of magnitude-- in some cases, matching the speed of image data acquisition itself. The team was led by Hari Shroff of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering and the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole.
For more than 20 years, Virginia Tech biomedical engineering and mechanics professor Jake Socha has sought to measure and model the biomechanics of snake flight and answer questions about them, like that of aerial undulation's functional role.
A new study led by researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and College of Medicine finds even moderate exercise during pregnancy increases a compound in breast milk that reduces a baby's lifelong risks of serious health issues such as diabetes, obesity and heart disease.
Researchers develop an artificial cell that brings to light the dynamics that govern each cell's internal symmetry. Two coexisting actomyosin networks with opposing functions exists in cells: a ring-like centripetal actomyosin that pushes toward the center, and radially-formed bulk actomyosin bridges that pull to the edges.
