  • thought
  • Telomeres can be thought of as "protective caps" on chromosomes. (eurekalert.org)
  • Ms Franklin said the team was keen to understand the impact of such an extensive mating ritual because although traditionally thought to be trivial, the energetic costs of mating could reduce an animal's survival if it decreased the ability to avoid predators and forage for food.

  • cells
  • In contrast, hybridoma cells which have been maintained in tissue culture for long periods of time (old cells) are not protective. (aacrjournals.org)
  • Publications] Moritake T, Tsuboi K, Anzai K, Ozawa T, Nose T: 'Reduction of nitroxides and radioprotective ability in glioblastoma cells. (nii.ac.jp)
  • To enhance its protective abilities without the harmful side effects, SuperFAK was primed for activation-ready to rush to the scene at the slightest provocation from stressed heart cells-but remained under the control of the mice's natural feedback systems that would shut it off when the crisis passed.

  • study
  • Most research involving protective capabilities of estrogen have focused instead on estradiol, one of the other two types of estrogen hormones, Dr. Gatson noted, so this finding indicates a fresh avenue for future study. (innovations-report.com)
  • affect
  • The research provides new insight into the evolution of reproductive strategies and behaviours and is the first time that the energetic costs of mating have been shown to affect physical abilities after mating. (bio-medicine.org)
  • found
  • In order to pass on their genes, southern dumpling squid engage in up to three hours of mating with each partner, but University of Melbourne researchers have found that this results in a reduced ability to swim for up to 30 minutes afterwards. (bio-medicine.org)
  • We found that after mating, both male and female dumpling squid took up to thirty minutes to recover to their previous swimming ability," Ms Franklin said. (bio-medicine.org)
