A new generation of high yield plants could be created following a fundamental change in our understanding of how plants develop. The research, led by the University of Warwick and published in the journal Science, provides the first evidence that plants have evolved ways to control embryo growth and development by emitting information from surrounding cells. The international study, headed by Dr Jose Gutierrez-Marcos from Warwick's School of Life Sciences, revealed that female sex...

[ Watch the Video: Cells Organize Into Rosette-Like Arrangement ] April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists have uncovered much about how embryos develop, but implantation — a key step in the process — has remained a mystery. A new study from Cambridge University, published in the journal Cell, has discovered a way to study this "black box" of development. Mammalian embryos develop in two phases: pre-implantation — where the embryo is a small, free...

Genetic testing of embryos for a fatal inherited neurodegenerative disorder allowed a woman to selectively implant two mutation-free embryos and conceive healthy twins, what researchers call the first case of in vitro fertilization (IVF) with preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) to prevent genetic prion disease in children, according to a case report by Alice Uflacker, M.D., of Duke University, Durham, N.C., and colleagues. The 27-year-old woman is a carrier of the F198S mutation for...

A new method allows for large-scale generation of human embryonic stem cells of high clinical quality. It also allows for production of such cells without destroying any human embryos. The discovery is a big step forward for stem cell research and for the high hopes for replacing damaged cells and thereby curing serious illnesses such as diabetes and Parkinson's disease. Currently human embryonic stem cells are made from surplus in vitro fertilized (IVF) embryos that are not used for the...

New Model For Evolution Of Paired Appendages
2014-01-27 11:28:06

University of Vienna This news release is available in German. All of us backboned animals – at least the ones who also have jaws – have four fins or limbs, one pair in front and one pair behind. These have been modified dramatically in the course of evolution, into a marvelous variety of fins, legs, arms, flippers, and wings. But how did our earliest ancestors settle into such a consistent arrangement of two pairs of appendages? – Because we have a belly. Researchers in the...
