He writes about viruses at <a href=”http://www.virology.ws” target=”_blank”>virology blog</a>.
  • Expression of prolactin in endometrial stromal cells is activated by an interaction of the transcription proteins (CCAAT/ enhancer binding protein b) and FOXO1A. Both proteins are present in non-mammals, allowing determination of whether this function evolved with the origin of pregnancy. The results show that changing the response of transcription factors to signalling pathways can be an important mechanism of genetic regulatory evolution.
  • N-terminal portion of pro C-type natriuretic peptide could be a reliable indicator of sepsis. An assay for Nt-pCNP could be added to current serum chemistry analysis, or packaged as an ELISA for quick, in-house diagnostics for pertinent veterinary cases.
  • It has been estimated that 3.2% of the volume of Mars could be habitable. All of this prime real estate is underground, where the lethal radiation present on the surface cannot penetrate.

I’ll be back next Friday with more selections.
