European League Against Rheumatism Slower dose tapering and absence of positive serology reduce risk of flare A new study presented today at the European League Against Rheumatism Annual Congress (EULAR 2014) showed that, for the majority of lupus patients who are in remission, it is possible to successfully stop immunosuppressant therapy without triggering a flare of their disease. Within two years, it was possible to stop the immunosuppressant in about 70% of clinically stable...

UC San Diego Biologists at UC San Diego have solved a long-standing mystery concerning the way plants reduce the numbers of their breathing pores in response to rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. In a paper published in this week’s early online edition of Nature, they report the discovery of a new genetic pathway in plants, made up of four genes from three different gene families that control the density of breathing pores—or “stomata”—in plant leaves in response...

Hollow-fiber MOF Membranes Developed That Could Cut Separation Costs, Energy Use
2014-07-07 03:38:07

By John Toon, Georgia Institute of Technology Researchers have developed a microfluidic technique for fabricating a new class of metal-organic framework (MOF) membranes inside hollow polymer fibers that are just a few hundred microns in diameter. The new fabrication process, believed to be the first to grow MOF membranes inside hollow fibers, could potentially change the way large-scale energy-intensive chemical separations are done. The researchers believe the process can be scaled up...

Caribbean Pine, Pinus caribaea
2014-04-18 08:11:48

Caribbean pine (Pinus caribaea) is native to Central America, Cuba, the Bahamas as well as the Turks and Caicos Islands. The Caribbean pine also grows in Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Jamaica, Colombia, South Africa and China where they were introduced by foresters. This pine often forms pure stands but can be found growing mixed in with oaks and other pines as long as the soil is well drained and acidic. The Caribbean pine grows in forest of the lowlands up to about 2,297 feet but can...

Golden Rice
2013-10-02 14:11:48

Golden Rice is a variety of Oryza sativa rice produced  through genetic engineering to biosynthesize beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A, in the edible parts of the rice. The research was conducted with the goal of producing a fortified food to be grown and consumed in areas with a shortage of dietary vitamin A, a deficiency which is estimated to kill 670,000 children under five years old each year. Golden rice is different from its parental strain by the addition of three...

Vistive Gold

Vistive Gold, MON 87705, is a genetically engineered variety of glyphosate-resistant low-linolenic, high-oleic soybeans created by Monsanto. Vistive Gold was designed to be a replacement for hydrogenated oils and fats, which are high in trans-fatty acids. The decreased linolenic content enables Vistive Gold to have favorable traits for deep frying and increasing the shelf life of foods. The Federal Register declared on June 28, 2011 that Monsanto was petitioning the Animal and Plant...
