In repeated experiments, both groups started after hearing the tone, as she freeze anticipated a shock. But the normal mice also reacted to the context – cage cage – while the mice that to the to the Kv4.2 channel, only the sound.

They found that the average waiting times rose initially and then fell steadily over time. Until 2007, there was far less variation in waiting times in the population.In 1997, the areas of social disadvantage were waiting longer for treatment than those from more affluent areas. But by 2007 the phenomenon had disappeared. In fact, in some cases, patients were from more deprived areas less wait time than patients from more affluent areas. (more…)

The team found that the stem cells for the for the robust responding to amputation by significantly increasing their proliferation as well as at home to undergo tissue homeostasis. But the researchers also found, when the daughter cells reach their target tissues, correctly distinguish distinguish right. The smedwi – 2 molecule is a bit early in the specification of stem cell progeny their ability their ability to differentiate into the appropriate cell type, S nchez Alvarado said. How this molecule modulates stem cells is one of the next steps that he and Reddien trying to solve.
