California agency votes to ban SeaWorld orca breeding

Animal rights activist Kirby Kotler, with his daughter Kirra, 12, from Malibu, Calif., holds up signs as opponents and supporters fill the room during a California Coastal Commission meeting, Thursday, Oct. 8, 2015, in Long Beach, Calif. The commission is considering a vast expansion to the tanks that SeaWorld uses to hold killer whales in […]

Лондонский стартап планирует отапливать дома пеллетами из использованной кофейной гущи

Лондонский стартап планирует отапливать дома пеллетами из использованной кофейной гущи

Пьете много кофе? Значит, вы создаете много отходов. Согласно агентству Sustainable America (Устойчивая Америка), почти половина кофейных зерен, так называемая в народе кофейная гуща, просто выбрасывается после приготовления кофе. Но оказывается, эта кофейная гуща является большим и весьма ценным источником биомассы, ведь мировое производство кофе составляет 4 – 5 миллионов тонн в год. Молодая лондонская […]

Encapsulated bacteriophages for enhanced oral phage therapy

Encapsulated bacteriophages for enhanced oral phage therapy

  Credit: Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Encapsulated bacteriophages are more resistant to low stomach pH and live longer in the intestinal tract of broilers. The research, published in Applied and Environmental Microbiology, was conducted jointly by the UAB Group of Molecular Microbiology, led by Dr Montserrat Llagostera, and the ICN2 Supramolecular NanoChemistry and […]

Multilaminar chromatin model explains the structure of chromosomal aberrations in cancer cells

Multilaminar chromatin model explains the structure of chromosomal aberrations in cancer cells

Figure: Direct relationship between the shape of translocations in cancer cells and the multilayer structure of chromosomes. The SKY images of different translocations involving chromosomes 1, 3, 5, 10, 16, and 20 in breast cancer cell line T47D were obtained from NCI-60 Drug Discovery Panel. The organization of DNA packaged in chromosomes during cell division […]

Новая Зеландия создает самый большой морской заповедник

Новая Зеландия создает самый большой морской заповедник

На днях Новая Зеландия представила планы по созданию в южной части Тихого океана морского заповедника размером с Францию. Как заявляют власти страны, этот заповедник будет защищать одну из самых больших в мире океанских экосистем с нетронутой природой подводного мира. Согласно заявлению премьер-министра Джона Кея на очередном заседании в Организации Объединенных Наций, заповедник, который получил название […]

Diet supplement keeps circadian clock from slowing down in aging mice

Diet supplement keeps circadian clock from slowing down in aging mice

  This graphic depicts how aging associated decline in polyamine levels lead to a correspondingly longer circadian period, which can be reversed by dietary polyamine supplementation. Credit: Zwighaft et al./Cell Metabolism 2015 Falling levels of polyamines, compounds present in all living cells, cause circadian rhythms to slow down in older mice, reports a study published […]

Researchers create inside-out plants to watch how cellulose forms

Researchers create inside-out plants to watch how cellulose forms

  Artificially-produced cellulose in cells on the surface of a modified Arabidopsis thaliana plant. Credit: University of British Columbia Researchers have been able to watch the interior cells of a plant synthesize cellulose for the first time by tricking the cells into growing on the plant’s surface. «The bulk of the world’s cellulose is produced […]

ZomBee Watch helps scientists track honeybee killer

ZomBee Watch helps scientists track honeybee killer

  In this Sept. 1, 2015, file photo, a honeybee works atop gift zinnia in Accord, N.Y. While scientists have documented cases of tiny flies infesting honeybees, causing the bees to lurch and stagger around like zombies before they die, researchers don’t know the scope of the problem. Now they are getting help in tracking […]

Team made new discoveries at the cellular and molecular levels about how the eye processes light

Team made new discoveries at the cellular and molecular levels about how the eye processes light

The image shows a Drosophila compound eye stained with antibodies that recognize TRP (magenta) and anti-XPORT-B (green). An animal’s ability to perceive light incorporates many complex processes. Now, researchers in Craig Montell’s lab at UC Santa Barbara have used fruit flies and mice to make novel discoveries about sensory physiology at both cellular and molecular […]

Evolution of kangaroo-like jerboas sheds light on limb development

Evolution of kangaroo-like jerboas sheds light on limb development

  Jerboa. Credit: Public Domain With their tiny forelimbs and long hindlimbs and feet, jerboas are oddly proportioned creatures that look something like a pint-size cross between a kangaroo and the common mouse. How these 33 species of desert-dwelling rodents from Northern Africa and Asia evolved their remarkable limbs over the past 50 million years […]
