A new study revealed that the regulatory proteins that control the inflammatory immune signaling pathways in cells responsible lung-constricting asthma attacks can be turned off.
A man participating in a trial of new experimental treatment has allegedly been cured of prostate cancer after being subjected to 22 cycles of the treatment.
Researchers from Pennsylvania State University have made a surprising discovery: elkhorn corals may have been on earth for over 5,000 years. Along with experts from the National Marine Fisheries Service and Dial Cordy & Associates, it was determined that the Acropora palmate in the Caribbean and Florida has an extraordinary level of resiliency.
Government officials and nature conservationists have expressed their concern over the rampant poaching and trafficking of the state’s “most famous natural legacy,” the Venus flytrap.
Scientists have broken the stereotype that winter is an off-season for lake plants, animals, and algae. Freshwater systems around the planet are incredibly active and much more complex, especially in recent times since climate change is warming lakes around the planet.
The road to making three-parent IVF is bumpy but shows progress. Recently, a new study shows the amount of risk couples face when embarking on this controversial process of conception.
A safe, inexpensive, and highly efficient way to speed up and improve the search of new germicides – this is what a team of scientists from the Lomonosov Moscow State University, in collaboration with their colleagues from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology and Gause Institute of New Antibiotics, have developed.
A team of researchers from the University of Cincinnati has discovered proof that early life forms that lived on Earth thrived even without oxygen billions of years ago.
Today may be a big day for scientists working on energy extraction from sewage. A team of biochemists and microbiologists from Ghent University in Belgium, in collaboration with DC Water in Washington DC, is working on a pilot project that can double the extraction of heat, biogas, and electrical energy from bacteria.
Most people would associate carrots with the color orange and would never dream of seeing this root vegetable in another color. What most people don't know is that the first cultivated carrots were purple or yellow. Around one thousand years ago, carrots spread to the eastern Mediterranean after being grown and domesticated in Afghanistan. Purple carrots, along with yellow, red, and white ones, were prevalent in the Middle East and other parts of Asia. Around the 1500s, orange carrots were recorded in Italy, Spain, and Germany.
Researchers have found evidence of the oldest red pigment in the feathers of a 130-million-year-old bird.
These new compound is more capable in reducing or stopping the growth of cancer cells compared to other treatments available today.
Researchers from the Rockefeller University have discovered genetic traces of bacteria capable of making compounds that can be used in making medicine in soil samples dug up in the parks of New York City.
A new research discovered that acorn worms, arguably human's closest invertebrate relative, are able to regenerate every major part of their body.
The Philodoria species is well known in Hawaii as micromoths that are roughly the size of a human eyelash. Chris Johns, a biology Ph.D. student of the University of Florida and a National Geographic explorer, has been striving to promote awareness of the plight of this threatened species due to their highly specific diet.
