Creatine powers T cells’ fight against cancer

UCLA Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research

The study, conducted in mice, is the first to show that creatine uptake is critical to the anti-tumor activities of killer T cells, the foot soldiers of the immune system.

Newly Discovered Virus Infects Bald Eagles Across America

University of Wisconsin-Madison

Researchers have discovered a previously unknown virus infecting nearly a third of America’s bald eagle population. Scientists at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, USGS and the Wisconsin DNR found the virus while searching for the cause of Wisconsin River Eagle Syndrome, an enigmatic disease endemic to bald eagles near the Lower Wisconsin River. The newly identified bald eagle hepacivirus, or BeHV, may contribute to the fatal disease, which causes eagles to stumble and have seizures.

Newswise: Scientists Discover Skin Keeps Time Independent of the Brain

Scientists Discover Skin Keeps Time Independent of the Brain

University of Washington School of Medicine

A study published Oct. 10 in Current Biology has now found that a type of opsin known as neuropsin is expressed in the hair follicles of mice and synchronize the skin’s circadian clock to the light-dark cycle, independent of the eyes or brain. This means that skin can sense whether it is day or night even when it’s cultured by itself in a dish. Researchers now want to see if skin heals better if it’s exposed to certain types of light.

Scientists unwind mystery behind DNA replication

Cornell University

The molecules of life are twisted. But how those familiar strands in DNA’s double helix manage to replicate without being tangled up has been hard to decipher. A new perspective from Cornell physicists is helping unravel the mystery.

Newswise: DEET Gives Humans an ‘Invisibility Cloak’ to Fend Off Mosquito Bites

DEET Gives Humans an ‘Invisibility Cloak’ to Fend Off Mosquito Bites

Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics

Since its invention during the Second World War for soldiers stationed in countries where malaria transmission rates were high, researchers have worked to pinpoint precisely how DEET actually affects mosquitos. Past studies have analyzed the chemical structure of the repellent, studied the response in easier insects to work with, such as fruit flies, and experimented with genetically engineered mosquito scent receptors grown inside frog eggs. However, the Anopheles mosquito’s neurological response to DEET and other repellents remained largely unknown because directly studying the scent-responsive neurons in the mosquito itself was technically challenging and labor-intensive work.
