Crawling the Web: Open Access

Everyday, Scientist Live turns its eyes to the Web around it and highlights news and research across the Internet. Today we look take an extended look at the Open Access debate as well as establishing order in a bacterial cell culture.



Active, sedentary behaviour genetic

Recent mouse model studies indicate that genetics may play a role in influencing whether an animal exhibits active or sedentary behaviour.



Lending a hand

Scientists have compiled guidelines to help other researchers design, develop, and manage next-generation databases of biological parts.



HIV trial hits snag

The National Institute of Allergy and infections Diseases announced that it will not conduct the HIV vaccine study known as PAVE 100.



Schizophrenia, bipolar disorder linked

A new study sought to analyse the patterns of gene expression in the brains of individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia or bipolar disorders.



Protein protects against eye disease

Scientists have identified the protein responsible for transporting nutrients to the eye that are believed to protect against the development of age-related macular degeneration.



Allergies, asthma tied to cell

NYU research shows that Foxp3-directed regulatory T cells (Treg) are produced in the mucosal tissue and remain there to prevent allergic reactions.



HIV destroys immune system quickly

New research into the earliest events occurring immediately upon infection with HIV-I shows that the virus deals a stunning blow to the immune system earlier than was previously understood.



Crawling the Web: Protein interactions

Everyday, Scientist Live turns its eyes to the Web around it and highlights news and research across the Internet. Today we look take an extended look at protein-protein interaction networks.



Antibiotic aided RNAi

Researchers have learned than fluoroquinolones enhances RNA interference in the laboratory and reduces potential side effects.



Regulating cell movement

The mechanism by which a cell controls its movement within tissue by way of cell adhesion has been revealed in the laboratory.



Video of Alzheimer's improvement

New research into the treatment of Alzheimer's disease reports improvement in language abilities using a novel immune-based approach.



Mouse protein linked to human disease

A protein found in dark-skinned mice has been shown to possibly play a role in tumour suppression and may help treat bone marrow failure in humans.



Crawling the Web: HIV/SIV infection

Everyday, Scientist Live turns its eyes to the Web around it and highlights news and research across the Internet. Today we look take an extended look at genome rearrangement and HIV/SIV infection.



Compact automated workstation

The all new BenchCel R Platform from Velocity11 is the heart of a fast and compact automation workstation that can handle a range of applications.



CD4 monitoring package

Guava Technologies announced a complete turnkey package for CD4 monitoring that requires minimum technical expertise to operate and obtain high quality results.



Improving male fertility

A newly developed, minimally invasive treatment for a common cause of male infertility can significantly improve a couple's chances of pregnancy.



Rare mutant cells seen

MIT biological engineers have developed a new imaging system that allows them to see cells that have undergone a specific mutation.



Once a suspect, now a friend

HMGB1, a chromosomal protein that binds to damaged DNA, prevents cancer development by enhancing DNA repair, recent reports suggest.



Another HIV trick

Genetic recombination during HIV replication often results in two viral strains exchanging genetic information and creating a third, recombinant strain for the virus.
