According to scientific recommendations, paratransgenesis is one of the solutions for improving the effectiveness of the Global Malaria Eradication Programme. In paratransgenesis, symbiont microorganisms are used for distorting or blocking the parasite life-cycle, affecting the fitness and longevity of vectors or reducing the vectorial competence. It has been revealed recently that bacteria could be used as potent tools for double stranded RNA production and delivery to insects. Moreover, findings showed that RNase III mutant bacteria are more competent for this aim. Asaia spp. have been introduced as potent paratransgenesis candidates for combating malaria and, based on their specific features for this goal, could be considered as effective dsRNA production and delivery tools to Anopheles spp. Therefore, we decided to characterize the rnc gene and its related protein to provide the basic required information for creating an RNase III mutant Asaia bacterium. Asaia bacteria were isolated from field

Often the way to deliver a competitive price for water treatment projects is an exercise in cost cutting but sometimes you need to invest for success. Jarid Hugonin, CETCO Oilfield Services technology and research manager, said: CETCO has used the ViPA online analyser in many situations to determine both solids and oil size and concentrations. In one application in particular, the ViPA saved CETCO from losing a $300,000 project by determining the micron size of the solids in the influent of the water treating system. Once the micron size of the solids were determined, the proper pre-filters were put in place prior to the oil removing media used to polish the water before discharging overboard off the coast of Brazil. The fact that CETCO was using a sophisticated device to determine the amount and sizes of the solids present, which were far higher and smaller than was given in the job scope by the client, field adjustments were able to be made to successfully complete the project with no ...
Serine/threonine Akt kinase is a key regulator of a wide range of cellular pathways including growth, proliferation, and survival. Accordingly, deregulation of Akt plays a key role in the onset or propagation of cancer. We found that dynAP is a novel modulator of Akt activation, warranting dynAP as a potential target for developing anticancer drugs. In addition, the involvement of Akt in the metabolic control (lipid and glucose) has been widely accepted, and recently, the importance of Akt has been implicated in the neuronal function (17, 18). Expression of dynAP therefore may profoundly affect other disease conditions such as diabetes mellitus and neurodegenerative diseases. The cellular content of dynAP seemed to be correlated with its mRNA level, and SV40 transformation provoked dynAP expression in the normal fibroblasts that did not express dynAP. These results may suggest that the expression of the dynAP gene is under the control of a tumor suppressor (Rb or p53) at the transcriptional ...

zag-1 activity establishes several neuronal characteristics, such as cell position, axonal structure and gene-expression profile. Although zag-1 mutations confer various defects on sensory, motor and interneurons, common or related phenotypes are evident. These include the absence of stereotypic axon branches and upregulation of neurotransmitter biosynthetic and reuptake genes. zag-1 functions less to define neuron identity per se and more to generate features characteristic of a particular type of neuron. The specificity and selectivity of zag-1 phenotypes for each neuron type suggests that zag-1 acts in combination with other cell-type-specific factors to control differentiation.. SRA-6 is a candidate chemosensory receptor, based on its predicted seven transmembrane domain topology and expression in amphid sensory neurons ASH and ASI (Troemel et al., 1995). sra-6::gfp provides an ideal indicator of PVQ development and differentiation, although sra-6 function in interneuron PVQ is unclear. ...

According to a recent video from Health Ranger on NaturalNews.com, GMO labeling is still not enforced in the US, and lobbyists continue to make strides in their efforts to conceal GMOs from consumers. This is a legitimate health hazard to Americans and those abroad who consume our agricultural exports., , , , While it might be difficult for everyday buyers to read labels and determine whether or not foods contain GMOs and other harmful ingredients, self-informing remains the most effective...
Thanks to Ron Epstein. Three facts you need to know about GMOs before you read the explosive test results below. Before you view the Cornucopias test results below, there are three important things you need to know about GMOs:. #1) There is GE contamination in almost everything. Even non-GMO food products almost always contain trace levels of GMOs (often between .01% and 0.5%). A test for the mere presence of GMOs is not considered conclusive. Whats important is thelevelof GMOs in a particular food item. Some of the natural items tested by the Cornucopia Institute showed GMO contamination levels between 28 and 100 %, which means the key ingredients in those cereals are most definitely genetically engineered from the source (and its not just a chance contamination from some other nearby field).. #2) All GMO tests are merely a snapshot that can change over time. Foods that test free of GMOs today may contain higher levels tomorrow due to supply line errors, contamination, supply source ...
Hello USA!!!. Im writing an urgent appeal to all who care about labeling GMOs in our great country.. After years of feeling hopeless about the state of GMO labeling in this country, I had what Jeffrey calls an epiphany. On the morning of January 20, 2011, it came to me in a flash of inspiration that it was my job from that day until November 6, 2012 to do everything I could to get a proposition to label GMOS on the ballot in California. I had no money, no experience and no hope. I just started.. Since that day, we have grown beyond my wildest dreams. We have leaders all over the state working in their communities to educate and get out the vote. We have professionals on board to guide us. We have much in place to be successful AND we are entering the most difficult phase of this campaign.. What happens here will affect the whole country. Seven states that I know of are watching us and are poised to do initiatives or legislative efforts once we win. Our opposition is firing up its weapons- ...

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or as they are alternatively called, genetically engineered organisms (GEOs) have raised quite a bit of concern over the past decade. But just what are these creatures that have caused so much alarm? In order to understand GMOs and their penchant to trigger alarm, we must first look at the base…
2011, 23:10. Abstract. Purpose: We reviewed 19 studies of mammals fed with commercialized genetically modified soybean and maize which represent, per trait and plant, more than 80% of all environmental genetically modified organisms (GMOs) cultivated on a large scale, after they were modified to tolerate or produce a pesticide. We have also obtained the raw data of 90-day-long rat tests following court actions or official requests. The data obtained include biochemical blood and urine parameters of mammals eating GMOs with numerous organ weights and histopathology findings.. Methods: We have thoroughly reviewed these tests from a statistical and a biological point of view. Some of these tests used controversial protocols which are discussed and statistically significant results that were considered as not being biologically meaningful by regulatory authorities, thus raising the question of their interpretations.. Results: Several convergent data appear to indicate liver and kidney problems as ...
How GMOs May Affect You Personally--10 Practical Concerns by Fred Fletcher. Theres a hot debate brewing not just in the U.S. but all over the world about something called genetically modified organisms or GMOs. Unfortunately, some people have decided to either stay away from the issue altogether or take the much safer, less-controversial approach of defending it, in line with government and big corporation agendas--safer, that is, than questioning or opposing what some...
Genetically modified proteins from GMOs or GM food we eat go directly into our bloodstream & bypass digestion, a study shows. Are GMOs rewriting human DNA?
For some its not a matter of choice. Its GMOs or an empty stomach. Have you been to a food bank lately? For the most part, its canned GMOs or nothing ...
Youre right, GMOs have been in the news more often lately, probably because more people are starting to question what GMOs are and whether or not they are safe to eat.

Genetical Modification, although not a new technology anymore, is still a hot topic being discussed around the world. This phenomena is essentially caused by peoples ignorance on what GMOs really are. Since we can not tell what long term effects GMOs can bring to us, it is reasonable for people to debate its rationality to consume. In this article, I will state my opinion on the safety of GMOs, and give reasons why I have that idea. Keywords: GMOs, Safety, Food, Health. A research on Genetically Modified Organisms. People have tried to solve the problem of famine ever since our ancestors abandoned gathering and hunting lifes and embraced farming. There is also more food needed than we have. This situation still holds true even in 21st century. Human beings nowadays have a potential answer to this problem, which is raising Genetically Modified (GM) crops and animals. However, this approach have attracted so many opponents that many countries banned Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) ...
Another Dirty Secret of Monsanto In the EFSA report, which can be read online, you can find (within the scientific wording) that researchers discovered a previously unknown viral gene that is known as Gene VI. Whats concerning is that not only is the rogue gene found in the most prominent GMO crops and about 63% of GMO traits approved for use (54 out of 86 to be precise), but it can actually disrupt the very biological functions within living organisms. Popular GMO crops such as Roundup-Ready soybeans, NK603, and MON810 corn were found to contain the gene that induces physical mutations. NK603 maize, of course, was also recently linked to the development of mass tumors in rats. According to Independent Science News, Gene VI also inhibits RNA silencing. As you may know, RNA silencing has been pinpointed as vital for the proper functioning of gene expression when it comes to RNA. Perhaps more topically, it is a defense mechanism against viruses in plants and animals alike. On the contrary, many ...

Do you know what GMO means? Many people dont, and the answer might surprise you. GMO stands for genetically modified organisms and we are surrounded by it. You are likely to be shocked to find out the extent to which GMO penetrates most foods that we eat (primarily corn, soy, canola and sugar).I attended a…
You might ask, why all the fuss about agricultural genetically modified organisms (GMOs)? After all, regulatory agencies have approved these technologies for widespread application and consumption, so they must be safe, right? Well, the truth is that there is no agency and no industry that works to protect our health. At best, the EPA, USDA, and FDA attempt to respond to our disease after the cause is widespread. ...

by Mark Verdecia. The development of agriculture is arguably the most important milestone in our shared human history. Our ancestors transition from a nomadic life to an agrarian society was the first step, for better or for worse, towards the world we live in today. It is interesting to think that all the features of what we consider the modern world, everything from antibiotics to YouTube, were all made possible by the spontaneous and quite random appearance of a wild grass in the Levant region of the eastern Mediterranean. The current debate about whether to genetically manipulate our food is somewhat ironic given that it was a random series of genetic events that created cereal grain, today grown worldwide as wheat. In fact, it was this genetic accident that created the farmer and, indirectly us, in the first place, and not the other way around.[1]. How wheat became a plant capable of sustaining human settlements is a series of serendipitous events elegantly described by mathematician and ...

Studies show that more than 90% of Americans support mandatory labeling of genetically modified (GMO) foods. Yet for twenty years we have been denied that right. Join the Just Label It campaign to urge Congress and the FDA to implement national GMO labeling.
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Round Up and is sprayed on genetically modified (GMO) plants to reportedly increase crop yield. While most of the glyphosate washes off with rain, trace amounts are left in and on the plant. This is problematic, because the WHO labeled it a probable carcinogenic to humans

Researchers have designed two types of kill switches that keep genetically engineered organisms from escaping the lab and running amok in the environment.
The scientists already knew that Bt toxin was very toxic and potentially deadly at levels above 270 milligrams per kilogram (basically ppm), so they instead tested levels ranging from 27mg/kg, 136mg/kg, and 270mg/kg for one to seven days (each of the Cry toxins were separated out and tested individually to maximize accuracy and total info). It was quite clear right off the bat that these Cry toxins were quite hemotoxic even at the lowest level of 27mg/kg administered only one time and one day as they clearly had damaged the blood, particularly in reference to red blood cells. The quantity and size of the erythrocytes (RBCs) were both significantly reduced, as was the overall levels of hemoglobin for which oxygen to attach to. All major factors regarding RBCs demonstrated some level of damage present for all levels of toxin administered and across all Cry proteins, although there were some clear variances present between different proteins and levels for certain factors. The white blood cell ...

GM viljade kasvatamine mõjutab pinnase ökoloogilist tasakaalu ja viljakust, võimalik, et pöördumatult. GM organismidest pärit DNAd ei lagundata täielikult pinnases olevate mikroorganismide poolt ning see võõras DNA võib mikroorganismide DNAga seguneda ning tekitada veidraid tüvesid, mürke ja üldse sekkuda bioloogilisse süsteemi, millest sõltub pinnase viljakus. On nähtud ka seda, et muundunud bakterid okupeerivad taimejuuri ja muudavad sedasi taime toitainelist sisaldust. Igal juhul vähendab glüfosaadi taimele pritsimine nii taime kui pinnase toitainelisi omadusi.22. New Yorgi Ülikooli Bioloogiaosakonna teadlased on seda kõike kinnitanud, nagu ka mitmed teised. GM taimedel kasutatavad toksiinid nagu glüfosaat kumuleeruvad pinnases ning need ei lagune täielukult, mõjutades seejuures pinnases olevate mikroobide elu. Samas jääb alles mürgine mõju, mis tapab jätkuvalt pinnases olevaid loomi, luues võimaluse, et tekivad ökosüsteemi kahjustavad ja GM mürkidele ...
