Nitrogen limitation of CO2 fertilization: relief from fungal partners

New research shows that the stimulatory effect of atmospheric CO2 on plants depends on soil nitrogen and on the microbes that can help plants get it. More »

Using genome-scale models to predict biological capabilities

Rapid advances in DNA sequencing and synthesis technologies have revolutionized the study of life sciences. More »

Do plants have brains?

Many organisms have circadian clocks. These internal clocks play essential roles for predicting day-length or seasons, and they regulate behavior and hormonal secretion in animals More »

Zika virus infection during pregnancy and small heads: What is the connection and what can be seen by imaging

Within the last year, the outbreak of Zika virus infection in Brazil became a “public health emergency of international magnitude and concern”. More »

 

Innovative method for oriented and closed-packed immobilization of immunoglobulins

For enhancing the sensitivity of immunosensing techniques, both clustering and oriented immobilization of immunoglobulin G (IgG) on solid phase are crucial. Conventionally, IgGs have been immobilized onto solid phases (e.g., gold, silica) with variety of scaffold chemistries

L-arginine and B vitamins improve endothelial function in subjects with mild to moderate blood pressure elevation

Mediated by nitric oxide (NO), intact endothelial cells control vascular homoeostasis by regulating vascular tone and preventing smooth muscle cell proliferation, monocyte adhesion to the endothelium and platelet aggregation, thereby protecting blood vessels from the formation of

A quick, simple, effective screening test for concussion

Concussion is a real prospect in many physical contact sports and physically demanding sports. Immediately after a concussion the brain doesn’t act normally. Typical issues for a person with concussion are confusion, difficulty responding to emotional situations

Interrogating the genome: approaches and tools for accessing genomic databases

Reference genome DNA sequences for thousands of species have now been determined, and deposited in freely – accessible public databases. The availability of these genomic data has revolutionized biology, enabling insights into the evolution of life on

Distinct expression profiles of acyl-CoA-binding proteins AtACBP4 and AtACBP5 during pollen development

Flower development is a process during which plants must progress from sexual immaturity to maturity. Throughout these phases, the differential expression of many genes and proteins is evident. In angiosperms, the pollen generates male sperms to facilitate

Similar but ectopic factor in chloroplast biogenesis between dicotyledonous and monocotyledonous plants

Seed is one of the successful form of reproduction in evolutionary history of land plants. Compared to primitive plants (ferns, mosses and liverworts) which do not have seeds and require water to propagate themselves, seed plants now

15th Asia-Pacific Pharma Congress. Melbourne, Australia. July 16-18, 2018

Asia Pharma 2018 cordially invites you all to be a part of this conference which is mainly focusing on latest advancements emerging in the field of pharmaceutical sciences. ConferenceSeries Ltd is providing a great platform for thousands of

Nanosensor for diabetes management

Diabetes is a major health concern for millions around the world. In addition to the analysis of free glucose level in blood, glucose bound to haemoglobin (HbA1c) is considered to be a very useful diagnostic marker for

Is schizophrenia disappearing?

Psychosis is a mental state with grossly impaired reality testing, manifesting as different mixtures of delusions, hallucinations, deviant thinking and abnormal motor behaviour – so-called positive symptoms. Negative symptoms – reduced emotions, interests, will and social participation

Marine metagenomic large insert libraries as rich source for biofilm inhibiting molecules

Marine microbial consortia are highly diverse and have evolved during extended evolutionary processes of physiological adaptations affected by a variety of ecological conditions and selection pressures. They harbor an enormous diversity of metabolically complex microbes with still

Blood vessels regulate fetal brain growth

Millions of neurons are generated during fetal development from progenitor cells that reside inside the embryonic brain. These neural progenitor cell (NPC)s divide many times to generate new neurons in a process termed ‘neurogenesis’. At each cell

How birds breathe: Did evolution finally get it right?

Flight and the efficiency of the respiratory system Powered (active) flight is a defining lifestyle trait of birds. Showing the exacting evolutionary requirements for flight, powered flight has only ever developed in insects, the extinct pterodactyls, birds

Tissue Science and Regenerative Medicine. Las Vegas, USA. April 23-24, 2018

Allied Academies Publication is an blend of several esteemed academic and scientific associations known for endorsing scientific temperament. The non-profit firm plans for organizing an average of 1000 international conferences in the upcoming years with its renowned journals and Editorial Board

Old drugs learn new tricks: drug repurposing saves the world!

New way of drug discovery, “drug repurposing” has come into the spotlight. Drug repurposing—also known as drug reprofiling or drug repositioning—is essentially using “old” drugs to treat “new” diseases. With increases in knowledge about the molecular mechanisms

Cells must communicate to maintain normal uterine and placental functions

Cell-cell communication through specialized channels known as gap junctions (Fig. 1) regulate cellular metabolism and coordinate cellular functions during growth and differentiation of organs and tissues. Gap junctions are composed of six proteins known as connexins (Cx)

Rain, rain go away, little amoebas want to race

Soil living amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum has been used as a leading model organism for studying eukaryotic cell differentiation and directional cell migration. These functions are interconnected: starved Dictyostelium cells form multicellular aggregates by directional cell migration, and
