Acrobatic geckos, highly maneuverable on land and in the air, can also race on water

Added: 14.12.2018 18:44 | 5 views | 0 comments

Asian geckos were observed running over water at nearly a meter per second, as fast as on land. Lab experiments show how. They get support from surface tension but also slap the water rapidly with their feet. They also semi-plane over the surface and use their tail for stabilization and propulsion. They thus sit between insects, which use only surface tension, and larger animals, which run upright via foot slapping alone.

Genome editing reduces cholesterol in large animal model, laying human trial groundwork

Added: 14.12.2018 17:39 | 4 views | 0 comments

Using genome editing to inactivate a protein called PCSK9 effectively reduced cholesterol levels in rhesus macaques. This is the first demonstration of a clinically relevant reduction of gene expression in a large animal model using genome editing. The study describes a possible new approach for treating heart disease patients who do not tolerate PCSK9 inhibitors -- drugs that are commonly used to combat high cholesterol.

Protein involved in nematode stress response identified

Added: 14.12.2018 0:06 | 4 views | 0 comments

When humans experience stress, their inner turmoil may not be apparent to an outside observer. But many animals deal with stressful circumstances -- overcrowded conditions, not enough food -- by completely remodeling their bodies. These stress-induced forms, whether they offer a protective covering or more camouflaged coloration, can better withstand the challenge and help the animal survive until conditions improve.
