It has been demonstrated that geometry can affect cell behaviors. Though curvature-sensitive proteins at the nanoscale are studied, it is unclear how cells sense curvature at the cellular and multicellular levels. To characterize and determine the mechanisms of curvature-dependent cell behaviors, we grow cells on open channels of the 60-µm radius.
In this section, you will learn about the various methods of gene regulation and the mechanisms used to control gene expression, such as: epigenetic, transcriptional, post-transcriptional, translational, and post-translational controls in eukaryotic gene expression, and transcriptional control in prokaryotic gene expression.
roles in controlling cellular behaviors. Natural RNAs can regulate multiple stages of gene expression, including transcription, splicing, mRNA stability, and translation, through varied mechanisms. RNA molecules are com-posed of four bases that form extensive intramolecular and intermolecular bonds through well-characterized

PROJECT INFORMATION A decade of EU-funded GMO research (2001 - 2010) KI NA This publication summarises the results of 50 selected research projects on genetically modified organisms (GMO), co-funded by the European Commission under the Framework Programmes for Research and Innovation, and conducted in the period 2001 - 2010,
Are invasive species a major cause of extinctions? Jessica Gurevitch and Dianna K. Padilla Department of Ecology and Evolution, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY 11794-5245, USA The linkbetweenspecies invasionsand theextinction of natives is widely accepted by scientists as well as conservationists, but available data supporting invasion
While the disease is uncommon in temperate climates, malaria is still common in tropical and subtropical countries. World health officials are trying to reduce the incidence of malaria by distributing bed nets to help protect people from mosquito bites as they sleep.
Environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) has developed fast over the last three decades. Whereas LCA developed from merely energy analysis to a comprehensive environmental burden analysis in the 1970s, full-fledged life cycle impact assessment and life cycle costing models were introduced in the 1980s and 1990s, and social-LCA and particularly consequential LCA gained ground in the first ...

Relatedly, studies have shown that low-income women, especially those who live in black and ...
Open Access journals are the major source of knowledge for young and aspiring generations who are keen in pursuing a career in sciences. This system provides easy access to networks of scientific journals.Authors that contribute their scholarly works to Open Access journals gain remarkable reputation as the research scholarly explore these works extensively.
This integrated EPSS framework is an improvement on previous approaches for assessing cumulative impacts as it takes into account legislative drivers, management tools and other mechanisms for controlling plans/projects specific to the estuary.
The American Physiological Society publishes journals and books in many disciplines within physiology. The Society’s 15 distinguished scientific journals are dedicated to the advancement of physiological research, which has formed the basis for many biomedical advances
It is now well established that rising temperatures are increasing precipitation extremes. This has led many to believe that flood magnitude and hence risk are also increasing, while observational evidence suggests otherwise. This commentary outlines the reasons for this dichotomy and presents mechanisms that may be contributing to it.
So, brain damage in bacterial meningitis is caused in part by the direct action of bacteria and in part by the antibacterial inflammatory response. The brain has elaborate mechanisms for controlling inflammation but, in some cases, unbalanced defense reactions can cause severe injury.
Considering the effects of the bulking of caved materials in numerical modelling is an extremely challenging problem. Perhaps the available empirical relations are among the best approaches for assessing the effects of the bulking of caved materials on the mechanisms of subsidence (Bell and De Bruyn, 1999, Piggott and Ground, 1978). The caving ...

Because of this it may be considered to be an excellent model for assessing the influence of various environmental substances on normal sexual maturation. One extremely valuable feature of rodent puberty is that the first ovulation is usually accompanied by opening of the ...
