Prof Fiona Stanley jumps on climate-pulpit, says skepticism ‘is like child abuse’ http://joannenova.com.au/2014/04/prof-fiona-stanley-jumps-on-climate-pulpit-says-skeptics-abuse-children/ It’s another pious scientist. Sigh. Why do good researchers sometimes throw their professional standards to the wind (or in this case, just blow them right up?) Fiona Stanley has done great work in the prevention of spina bifida with folic acid, and [...]

Stoichiometry and assembly of Best channels [Physiology]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Fri, 04/18/2014 - 13:45
Human Bestrophin 1 (hBest1) is a calcium-activated chloride channel that regulates neuronal excitability, synaptic activity, and retinal homeostasis. Mutations in hBest1 cause the autosomal-dominant Best macular dystrophy (BMD). Because hBest1 mutations cause BMD, but a knockout does not, we wondered if hBest1 mutants exert a dominant negative effect through interaction...

Long-range repulsion of colloids [Applied Physical Sciences]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Fri, 04/18/2014 - 13:45
Interactions between surfaces and particles in aqueous suspension are usually limited to distances smaller than 1 μm. However, in a range of studies from different disciplines, repulsion of particles has been observed over distances of up to hundreds of micrometers, in the absence of any additional external fields. Although a...

Cortical control of thalamic sensory processing [Neuroscience]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Fri, 04/18/2014 - 13:45
A major synaptic input to the thalamus originates from neurons in cortical layer 6 (L6); however, the function of this cortico–thalamic pathway during sensory processing is not well understood. In the mouse whisker system, we found that optogenetic stimulation of L6 in vivo results in a mixture of hyperpolarization and...

Cas3-DNA-Cascade complexes in CRISPR immunity [Biochemistry]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Fri, 04/18/2014 - 13:45
In bacteria, the clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)–associated (Cas) DNA-targeting complex Cascade (CRISPR-associated complex for antiviral defense) uses CRISPR RNA (crRNA) guides to bind complementary DNA targets at sites adjacent to a trinucleotide signature sequence called the protospacer adjacent motif (PAM). The Cascade complex then recruits Cas3, a...

Too loaded. George Brandis describes how the left have stopped arguing for free speech and instead do everything to silence different views. He was shocked, he said, at the deplorable attitudes [...]

Polar Vortex In 1976/77 & 1936: ‘USA had exactly the same pattern of weather in the winter of 1976/77′

Polar Vortex In 1936 http://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2014/04/17/polar-vortex-in-1936/ By Paul Homewood   Tabloid climatologists continue to try to blame the America’s cold winter this year on global warming, but as WUWT and Steve Goddard have pointed out, the USA had exactly the same pattern of weather in the winter of 1976/77.   http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1899&dat=19830325&id=cAUgAAAAIBAJ&sjid=9WQFAAAAIBAJ&pg=1417,3960641   And if you go [...]
