This session will discuss what is needed to ensure that the years of research conducted in your labs is not completely compromised after a disaster. The presentation will be oriented to those steps you can take to reduce the impact of a disaster and steps you should be prepared to initiate after a disaster to get back to your operational status as quickly as possible. Think about this goal now, after the disaster it is too late.
An inflammatory protein that triggers a pregnant mouse’s immune response to an infection or...
Scientists report that dogs have an area of their retina that strongly resembles the human fovea...
An enzyme that helps maintain immune system function by “throwing away” a specific protein has a vital role in controlling symptoms of allergic asthma, research in mice suggests.
Brain research has focused on the pleasurable effects of cocaine largely by studying the dopamine pathway. But this approach has left many questions unanswered. So researchers decided to take a different approach by examining the motivational systems that induce an animal to seek cocaine in the first place.
The Gen II SteriDry system is programmable up to 400°F and features two ventilated cage racks or two standard 3 sided facility load carts and 504 nested cages or four purpose built load carts and 680 nested cages. The system provides a sterilized cage for usage with dry bedding, as well as low thermal impact to surrounding room and low noise levels.
The chamber geometry offered by the SwirlPort requires a small clearance flushing volume to prevent ‘sludge’ buildup, which means few incidences of withdrawal occlusion, sluggish flow, and complete occlusion. An additional benefit is the small dead space or chamber volume. The ports are available in three sizes, with or without the gridlock feature.
In a study that began in a pair of infant siblings with a rare heart defect, researchers say they have identified a key molecular switch that regulates heart cell division and normally turns the process off around the time of birth.
Researchers have shown that a small region within the amygdala, an almond-shaped structure in the brains of all mammals, is responsible for producing emotional calls and sounds.
The CBW1026 is a large capacity, heavy-duty batch-type spray cabinet washer. It combines robust industrial components with heavy stainless steel cabinetry. Machines are available in several configurations, and with a variety of optional features which will allow use in any conceivable laboratory environment.
When Alessandra Piersigilli enrolled in her first UC Davis Extension course in July 2012, she never thought she'd actually find herself in Davis.
Using pure silk protein derived from silkworm cocoons, a team of investigators has developed surgical plates and screws that may not only offer improved bone remodeling following injury, but importantly, can also be absorbed by the body over time, eliminating the need for surgical removal of the devices.
Exciting research suggests that a shot every one to three months may someday give an alternative to the daily pills that some people take now to cut their risk of getting HIV.
Even though medical research has improved over the past decades, a new study is reporting that women's health continues to be underrepresented in government-funded research studies.
In the past year or so, researchers have discovered that the bacterial system can be harnessed to make precise changes to the DNA of humans, as well as other animals and plants.
Blocking Key Signaling Chemical in the Immune System Stalls Chronic Inflammation and Insulin Resistance Tied to Obesity in MiceMarch 4, 2014 1:48 pm | by NYU Langone Medical Center | News | Comments
Researchers have found that blocking the action of a key signaling molecule in the immune system known as Netrin-1 stalls chronic inflammation and insulin resistance tied to obesity and often derived from fatty diets.
Two strains of rats, cans of vanilla frosting and a theory have helped a professor of psychology take one step closer to finding the genetic causes, and eventually a treatment, for binge eating.
Using a microscopy technique that allowed the researchers to directly visualize the chemical signaling occurring between the climbing fibers and Purkinje cells of live, active mice, a research team has for the first time shown that there is a measurable difference between “true” and “false” signals.
