Cancer cells have long been known to have higher rates of the energy-generating metabolic pathway known as glycolysis. This enhanced glycolysis, a phenomenon known as the Warburg effect, is thought to allow cancer cells to survive the oxygen-deficient conditions they experience in the center of solid tumors. A study in The Journal of Cell Biology reveals how damaged cells normally switch off glycolysis as they shut down and shows that defects in this process may contribute to the early stages...

Ups And Downs Of Early Atmospheric Oxygen

Iqbal Pittalwala - University of California - Riverside UC Riverside research team challenges conventional view of a simple two-step rise in early oxygen on Earth; study suggests instead dynamic oxygen concentrations that rose and fell over billions of years A team of biogeochemists at the University of California, Riverside, give us a nontraditional way of thinking about the earliest accumulation of oxygen in the atmosphere, arguably the most important biological event in Earth...

A Glowing Plant Is A Sign Of Health

ESA Radiant skin is considered a sign of good health in humans, but plants also glow when they are well. A potential new ESA satellite could use this fluorescence to track the health and productivity of vegetation worldwide. The Florescence Explorer, or FLEX for short, is a candidate for ESA’s eighth Earth Explorer. It aims to provide global maps of vegetation fluorescence, which can be used to work out actual photosynthetic activity. This information would improve our...

Photosynthesis-Activating Protein Likely Predates Oxygen On Earth

[ Watch the Video: Photosynthesis Older Than Oxygen ] redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports – Your Universe Online Thioredoxin, a protein essential to the process of photosynthesis in plants, likely developed on Earth long before oxygen ever became available, according to a study published in last week’s early online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. In the study, an international team of researchers analyzing methane-producing microbes found that...

The tropical carbon cycle has become twice as sensitive to temperature variations over the past 50 years, new research has revealed. The research shows that a one degree rise in tropical temperature leads to around two billion extra tonnes of carbon being released per year into the atmosphere from tropical ecosystems, compared with the same tropical warming in the 1960s and 1970s. Professor Pierre Friedlingstein and Professor Peter Cox, from the University of Exeter, collaborated with...

KIND LED’s L600 grow light sales are so brisk that its distributor, SuperCloset, cannot currently meet demand from retailers and individual customers. The L600 is the most advanced LED grow light on the market today and hence has sold out for the near term. San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2014 The KIND K3 L600 has sold out because of a couple of key features. The main feature of the K3 KIND L600led grow light is the 12 band perfect spectrum that encompasses the most...

Photos And Lab Analysis Needed For Leaf Study
2014-01-23 15:27:34

Brown University Automated remote photography is a convenient, labor-saving research tool for tracking leaf function and doing forest research. But does photography mirror what's actually happening on the ground? A new study finds photography accurately tracks the timing of red pigments in the fall, but the timing of green in the spring and summer — not so much. Every picture tells a story, but the story digital photos tell about how forests respond to climate change could be...

Do Faster-Growing Old Trees Translate To More Carbon Storage?
2014-01-16 07:03:46

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Contrary to the commonly held belief that trees become unproductive as they grow older, new research appearing in the journal Nature demonstrates that most of them experience increases in their growth rates and store more carbon as they age. As part of their research, the study authors reviewed records from studies on six continents, including measurements from over 650,000 trees belonging to 403 tropical and temperate species....
