Newswise: For some corals, meals can come with a side of microplastics

For some corals, meals can come with a side of microplastics

University of Washington

A new experiment by the University of Washington has found that some corals are more likely to eat microplastics when they are consuming other food, yet microplastics alone are undesirable.

Scientists First to Develop Rapid Cell Division in Marine Sponges

Florida Atlantic University

Despite efforts over multiple decades, there are still no cell lines for marine invertebrates. For the first time, scientists have developed a breakthrough in marine invertebrate (sponge) cell culture, demonstrating exceptionally fast cell division and the ability to subculture the cells. This groundbreaking discovery forms the basis for developing marine invertebrate cell models to better understand early animal evolution, determine the role of secondary metabolites, predict the impact of climate change to coral reef community ecology and develop novel medicines.

The cause of chewy chicken meat

University of Delaware

Wooden breast syndrome hurts the poultry industry by making chicken meat chewy. Researchers found gene expression irregularities suggesting it’s a metabolic disorder and could lead to short-term solutions. The findings may also inform human health research on metabolic syndromes such as diabetes.

Mapping disease outbreaks in urban settings using mobile phone data

École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)

Researchers from EPFL and MIT have shown that human mobility is a major factor in the spread of vector-borne diseases such as malaria and dengue even over short intra-city distances.

Researchers Find New Role for Dopamine in Gene Transcription and Cell Proliferation

George Washington University

A joint group of researchers at the George Washington University and the University of Pittsburgh have found that dopamine and the dopamine D2 receptor modulate expression via the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway. This pathway is responsible for control of cell proliferation and organ identity and is implicated in cancer, thus having broad implications for health and development of new therapeutics

Newswise: Early Spinal Patterns May Predict Scoliosis in Teen Years

Early Spinal Patterns May Predict Scoliosis in Teen Years

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

A pediatric researcher has identified patterns of spinal curvature in younger children that may be likely to develop into scoliosis by adolescence. Accurately predicting scoliosis, a common, abnormal curvature of the spine, may set the stage for the first-ever methods to prevent the potentially disabling condition.
