News article of interest found on Sciencedaily.com

I read an article on sciencdaily.com regarding 11 species of frogs found in Central Africa that, when threatened, puncture their skin via sharp bones in their toes and use them as claws to wound predators. The article’s journal reference was Blackburn et al. Concealed weapons: erectile claws in African frogs. Biology Letters, 2008; 1 (-1): -1 DOI: 10.1098/rsbl.2008.0219
Adapted from materials provided by Harvard University, via EurekAlert!, a service of AAAS.

I found this article pretty interesting – it’s about microbes damaging historical buildings and artwork made out of stone and marble and efforts to control it.

I found this interesting article on sciencedaily.com this morning and it relates to the topics we were discussing last night about cells, cell differentiation, and outside factors affecting a cell. This particular article discusses the study of a protein that may play a role in helping make more bone and less fat in our bodies. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/07/080701155725.htm

An interesting article that talks about a combination of DHA (a type of omega-3 fatty acid), uridine and choline that has shown to promote growth of new brain connections in rodents. A possible treatment for brain disorders such as alzheimer’s, parkinson’s or brain injuries.

This video of a mouse developing is pretty cool. It is a very short clip but I thought it was interesting to watch.
