New cellular pathway triggering allergic asthma response identified
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, with collaborators in Korea and Scotland, have identified a novel signaling pathway critical to the immune response of cells associated with the initiation of allergic asthma. The discovery, they say, could point the way to new therapies that suppress the inflammatory allergic response, offering potential relief to millions of Americans with the chronic lung condition and potentially other allergic diseases.

Coping behaviors linked to female chromosome
Coping behaviors appear to be linked to at least three genes on the X, or female, chromosome, Northwestern University researchers report. Therefore, males, who are XY, inherit coping behaviors from their mothers, while females, who are XX, can inherit coping behaviors from each of their parents. (2003-11-07)

Change your walking style, change your mood
Our mood can affect how we walk -- slump-shouldered if we're sad, bouncing along if we're happy. Now researchers have shown it works the other way too -- making people imitate a happy or sad way of walking actually affects their mood. (2014-10-15)

Desert bats reveal the secret of their survival
Desert bats reduce water loss by changing the make-up of their skin, allowing them to thrive in some of the world's most inhospitable environments. This is surprising given the anatomy of bats and the energy they expend in flight and may provide significant insight into how bats might respond to a future changing climate. This work is being presented at the Society for Experimental Biology Annual Conference in Prague on Wednesday, June 30, 2010. (2010-06-29)

But by taking a systemic look at the mechanism of bone loss, McLeod has found at least one approach to do just that. (2003-01-21)

A 'crystal ball' for predicting the effects of global climate change
In trying to predict how species will respond to climate change caused by global warming, researchers and scientists are turning to comparative physiology, a sub-discipline of physiology that studies how different organisms function and adapt to diverse and changing environments. Overall, the comparative approach gives researchers insights into the effects of global warming that they wouldn't otherwise have. (2010-08-05)
