Duck Power: Measuring How Much Waterfowl Feel the Burn

University of Delaware

Researchers at the University of Delaware are studying how much energy ducks burn during a given day to study a habitat's carrying capacity. The data can be used to help with conservation efforts, determining if landscapes provide enough habitat to support waterfowl populations at ideal levels.

NUS researchers uncover a bidirectional regulator and shed light on A-to-I RNA editing in cancer cells

National University of Singapore

An in-depth study on the regulation of adenosine-to-inosine (A-to-I) RNA editing by researchers from the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore at the National University of Singapore found that a protein, known as DHX9, acts as a bidirectional regulator of the molecular process which is linked to various types of cancer such as esophageal cancer.

Transgenic rice plants could help to neutralize HIV transmission

Iowa State University

An international research group, which included an ISU scientist, has proven that three proteins that can help prevent the spread of HIV can be expressed in transgenic rice plants. Using plants as a production platform could provide a cost-effective means of producing prophylactics, particularly in the developing world.

Byproducts of ‘Junk DNA’ Implicated in Cancer Spread

University of California San Diego

Biologists have revealed that enhancer RNAs play a significant role in cancer dissemination. The researchers found that eRNAs have a direct role in the activation of genes that are important for tumor development. This role is facilitated by the ability of eRNAs to directly interact with BRD4, a protein known as a cancer disseminator.

Magnetic Gene in Fish May Someday Help Those with Epilepsy, Parkinson’s

Michigan State University

An aquarium fish that senses the Earth’s magnetic field as it swims could help unlock how diseases such as Parkinson’s and other neurological disorders function. Michigan State University scientists are the first to discover a navigational gene in glass catfish called the electromagnetic-perceptive gene, or EPG, that responds to certain magnetic waves. They’ve already developed a way to use it to control movement in mice.
