April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study from North Carolina State University (NCSU) and the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) reveals new evidence for the preservation of ancient dinosaur proteins. This new evidence includes reactivity to antibodies that target specific proteins that are normally found in bone cells of vertebrates. Further, the study findings rule out sample contamination, and solidify the case for the preservation of cells and possibly DNA in...

Study highlights roles of gene in load-sensing cells in bone growth; could guide research on treatments for bone diseases like osteoporosis A study by researchers at Children's Hospital Boston and collaborators at other institutions has provided new insights into the means by which bone cells produce new bone in response to mechanical stresses, such as exercise. Their findings lay a path for developing new strategies for treating diseases characterized by low bone density, such as...

A long-standing question in bone biology has been answered: It is the spindly extensions of bone cells that sense mechanical stimulation and signal the release of bone-growth factors, according to research from The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. The study, reported this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, offers an important clue for developing therapies to treat the bone-thinning disease osteoporosis and bone...
