An island in French Polynesia laboratory where a laboratory where a French-US collaboration is building a barcode library for all terrestrial and marine species are. Sphinx found found around the world, and the first global barcode survey of the group will be presented in Taipei. The importance of this work for the conservation especially critical to develop strategies very very different genetic entities or species – to enable the species identification of eggs, larvae and tissue, said conference chair Kwang – Tsao Shao, by Academia Sinica. Asia is a region of great diversity, but relatively poor documentation of this diversity, Barcoding is a perfect collaboration between molecular techniques and traditional taxonomy, he added.

Fungi / mushroomsAlthough known to be essential for life on Earth, scientists say some 90-99 percent of fungi remain undocumented – a diversity that could be revealed by DNA barcoding Possible projects are identified air fungi, including mycotoxin producers, global trade – related fungi travelers, boreal forest fungi and medically important fungi.

Scorsetti said TrueBeam has many new features that will enable it to offer cancer patients advanced care is. Developed to the treatment of lung, prostate, Head and neck, and other types of cancer, the TrueBeam platform for image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery was advancing Varian in April introduced the first fully integrated system from scratch a moving target a moving target with unprecedented speed and accuracy to deal with. RapidArc delivers a volumetric intensity-modulated radiation field treatment in a single or multiple sheets of the processing machine to the patient and makes it possible to provide advanced image-guided IMRT two to eight times faster than is possible with conventional IMRT.

‘We seem to be very happy with the progress made and the patient is responding well satisfied,’Dr. Marta Scorsetti, says chief doctor at a private clinic. Scorsetti said the TrueBeam accelerator is used to 50 patients 50 patients a day and treatments on hypo – fractionated stereotactic body radiation therapy , Scorsetti liver and pancreatic cancer, non-small cell lung cancer and lymph node metastases to focus. ‘TrueBeam will enable us treatments for different types of illnesses, as did previously with radiosurgery here at Humanitas offer possible,’said Dr. Scorsetti. ‘Above all, in a position to able to patients.

Several movies have tried and failed lifelike lifelike animations of humans. – ‘There is something fundamentally important about see a face and know that the lights are on and someone is home, ‘says Thalia Wheatley of Dartmouth College, who cowrote the study with graduate student Christine Looser. Experiment found see faces in anything – the moon, a piece of toast, two dots and a line for a nose – but we are much more sophisticated when it comes to deciding what is alive and what is not.

Objects with faces may look human, the difference we can keep our social energies for faces that is capable of thinking, feeling and interacting with us.. Volunteers looked at each picture and decided which were human and which were dolls. Looser and Wheatley found that the tipping point where people determined the faces to be alive, about two-thirds of the way along the continuum, closer. To the human side, as page side Another experiment found face, she the eyes were the most important feature for determining life. Continue reading

Artery and To Stroke Risk Lower the opposite effectbrain stents to open places, are a blocked artery, and are designed to to prevent stroke in high-risk individuals, actually increase the risk of stroke or death significantly, reported the researchers. NEJM (New England Journal of Medicine, found at the end of a multicenter clinical trial patients, the brain stents twice , the rate of stroke and death compared to those who without stents, the authors wrote.

Each year are caused by stenosis. Stenosis refers to the narrowing or blockage of the blood vessels caused by the accumulation of blood clots and plaque. People with diabetes , as well as Hispanics have Asian Americans and African Americans have a higher risk of stenosis than other people..

In a previous study, NYU researchers Tafazzin the characteristics of a deficiency in a Drosophila documented model of the disease, showing low and abnormal cardiolipin concentration, abnormal mitochondria, and poor motor function. Documented in this new study, researchers humanTafazzin or cardiolipin deficiency in Drosophila caused the final stage of spermatogenesis male sterility bothers. With this fly model, the study showed that this trait of cardiolipin deficiency can be suppressed by genetically inactivating calcium-independent phospholipase A2, which prevents the degradation of cardiolipin. This method keeps cardiolipin levels normal. The researchers were also able to treat patients BTHS lymphoblasts within a tissue culture show with the iPLA2 – VIA inhibitor BEL partially restored the tissue cultures cardiolipin homeostasis. Together, our two findings establish a causal role of cardiolipin deficiency in the pathogenesis of Barth syndrome and identify iPLA2 – VIA as a very important enzyme, said Michael Schlame, Associate Professor of Anesthesiology and Cell Biology, NYU Langone Medical Center. This is good news for patients since this enzyme is now a potential target for therapeutic intervention. . Continue reading

Once a suitable cell penetrated a virus essentially reprograms malignancies. New virus particles.. The RNAs known as messenger RNAs specify the sequences of all the proteins required by a given cell type by a second process known as translation. The proteins produced by a cell to determine its structure and function, so that the corresponding proteins will be produced in the correct quantities and at the right time. ‘n is therefore strictly controlled. In recent years it has become clear that short RNAs microRNAs microRNAs , is playing a crucial role in this process in most organisms. The sequences of miRNAs are ‘complementary’parts of the mRNAs , and bind to them to form partially double-stranded structures. This prevents synthesis of the corresponding proteins and lead may to the degradation of the mRNA.
