Cloned a mouse from a single drop of blood - Gazeta Wyborcza

Fig. Riken Center for developmental biology

Scientists in Japan have cloned mice, using the just one drop of blood taken before the tail rodent donor. According to the researchers, the findings could in the future contribute significantly to the work of even the testing of new treatments

Mouse is powered by Atsuo Ogury Riken Center in Tsukuba lived exactly the same as live normal mice were also able to without any problems to get pregnant and give birth to offspring.

been cloned mice, using cells derived from various sources. These included white blood cells found in the lymph nodes, bone marrow and liver. The authors present findings, described in “Biology of Reproduction”, they decided to see if we can also clone a mouse from the blood circulating in the body slowly. It was not, of course, only of “art for art’s sake”, but the acquisition of a new, simple and rich source of cells, which can use to create new generations of laboratory mice.

Atsuo Ogura first retrieved from the tail of a mouse donor blood drop . Isolated from the white blood cell and downloaded from the nucleus containing the complete genetic information rodent. Then, the kernel has been implanted into the egg of another mouse, previously with the cells of its own nucleus removed.

This is a classic technique based on the so-called cloning. Somatic cell nuclear transfer (the same method was used to clone the famous Dolly the shee p).

– For the first time we have proved that it is possible to clone mammals using peripheral blood – Atsuo Ogura says.

– The cells obtained from the blood can almost immediately be used for cloning. Of course, donor animal died during the procedure. We will use this technique very valuable for breeding strains of laboratory mice – he added.

– This is definitely a step forward in terms of cloning mammals using many different types of cells – says the BBC prof. Robin Lovell Badge of the UK’s National Institute for Medical Research in London. – All indications are that the technique developed in Japan is very effective and efficient. And it is sufficient to just one drop of blood. This will help us to maintain and even expand the individual lines of the most valuable individuals, not just one species – said Lovell Badge.

Japanese intensively engaged in research on cloning and belong to the precursors of different methods of cloning mice. Recently one of the Japanese institute announced that he had already obtained 600 genetically identical copy of a mouse.

Google is preparing a console, a watch and a new Nexus Q? -

As reported by the Wall Street Journal, Google is currently working on several devices, among which we find such game console with the operating system Android . As for the other equipment, then we are talking about “smart” watch and resurrected the project Nexus Q – at least one of these products is the market debut later this year.

Interestingly, if these leaks are confirmed, it may be a fierce battle with Apple, which according to unofficial reports also preparing similar devices. WSJ also says that the next big version of Android (probably a long-awaited for some time Key Lime Pie ) will be prepared for use in more different devices, as well as adapted to the budget smartphone or tablet in developing countries a.

This may mean that soon we will get more watches, laptops and gaming consoles with OS from Google.

Recon Instruments is a small company based in Vancouver, which specializes in the production of high-tech gadgets for skiing. Spirit of previous projects can be felt also in the Jet Recon glasses that are more equipment for athletes than Google Glass “for all”.

The Google Glass and Recon Jet operate on a modified Android. Compared with glasses Google’s Android Recon Jet is not as open – because the manufacturer made sure that most of you need to use the gadget features preinstalled. In the near future we will be releasing SKD (Software Developer Kit) – a set of programming tools – but they will not allow the free creation of reality so that the system Google Glass.

Recon Jet stylistically reminiscent of some of Oakley sunglasses. The information is displayed on the bottom of the glass member. Among them are parameters such as heart rate, movement speed, distance traveled and calories burned. The final product will al so include the ability to view the basic information of the paired smartphone with glasses. The device allows you to connect to Facebook and Twitter.

Glasses Recon Jet is a very equipment for athletes, especially cyclists. By investing in a product of the Canadian company, they will be able to read a text message or check your heart rate without taking your hands off the steering wheel.

The glasses Recon Jet can now submit Pre-order. The price was set at $ 500. This is three times less than the minimum amount you have to spend for Google Glass.

The new zone of life in our galaxy - Republic

22 years from Earth, the light circulating , desired planet potentially habitable. could look like the surface of one of them

class=”author”> Christopher Smith 26-06-2013

Three planets that may harbor life, scientists have discovered working at the European Southern Observatory in Chile.

Globes orbit around the star Gliese 667C in the constellation Scorpius, the distance of 22 light years from Earth. Gliese 667C is called. red dwarf star three times less massive and a hundred times less bright than our Sun.

discovery was made in 2011 by Harps telescope installed at La Silla in Chile. Team led by Guillem Anglada-Escude from Germany’s University of Göttingen and Mikko Tuomi of the UK’s University of Hertfordshire. After the tests carried out in the Laboratory of Astrophysics in Grenoble, France, has been officially confirmed by the ESO.

around Gliese 667 planets circling seven, but only three recently discovered there are at such a distance from the star, the temperature on the surface helps keep water in a liquid state.

– The discovery is remarkable, observed for the first time three potential habitat life around a single star. In our solar system there are only two such planets – Earth and Mars, the Mars water is gone – he said, commenting on this achievement prof. Rory Bames the University of Washington.

According to Prof.

. Vincent Coude, astronomer of the Observatory of Paris-Meudon, such a discovery was inevitable, astrophysicists have long suspected that red dwarfs should have this kind of planetary systems, but there was no evidence. Now, researchers have it.

– Do not present the findings in a sensational tone, discovered planets are located in the zone of potential life, but that does not mean that their life develops. Can there be like on Mars. To life, in addition to water, spreading an atmosphere of warmth on the planet’s surface, which gives it a star – explains Professor. Rory Bames the University of Washington.

According to researchers at the University of Auckland in New Zealand in the field of view telescope is 100 billion rocky like Earth globes. Many of them can be life habitats. Try to be observed by telescopes scholars such as Very Large Telescope (VLT) of the European Southern Observatory, ALMA – the Atacama Large Millimeter Array – the world’s largest radio telescope in the Chilean Andes. In 2022, Europe will search EELT – the world’s largest optical telescope with a mirror 39 meters in diameter

They are part of a system in which a total of seven planets. They orbit the parent star called Gliese 667C. They are very close to us, just 22 light-years.
For now, it is not certain whether these so-called super-Earths are rocky and to what extent resemble the planet.

It takes "Superpe?nia". Moon approached the Earth to the smallest ... - Gazeta Wyborcza

little sin now I am committed to using the phrase “Superksi??yc”. Astronomers do not like him. It was formed for the purpose of astrology and referred to the situation in which the full-moon is in perigee of its orbit – that is, at the point closest to the Earth on its elliptical orbit.

Class=”txt_srodtytul”> How close The moon will be?

average distance is 384 400 km. On Sunday, during the full moon will be about 27.3 thousand. km closer than usual. What does it mean?

Unless will be bigger and brighter?

“bald” as it was familiarly called astronomy enthusiasts, will be slightly higher (by 14 per cent.) and lighter (by 30 per cent.) than in the opposite situation, when it is farthest from the Earth, ie, at the height of the orbit.

Discussion remains that, if a man is able to detect such a difference. Some argue that it is obvious, but there are also those who consider it autosuggestion. Typically, he lacks overhead benchmarks by which such differences can be assessed.

However, this weekend our senses will be somewhat easier task. On Friday came out for the summer solstice. A summer our natural satellite marches during a full exceptionally low on the horizon.

This is due to an overlap of the effects from the tilt axis of the Earth with an inclination of the Moon’s orbit relative to the equator of the planet. As a result, when the Moon moves just above the trees and buildings. With this reference point, the easier it is noted that it is actually larger.

But in the case of lunar which is very low on the horizon you need to take into account the additional effect of enlargement – moon illusion. Because of the not fully understood by psychologists and astronomers reasons moon low in the sky always seems to us more, but paradoxically we have in him then further than the moon that shines over your head. We fall into a trap set by our brain.

Is “Superksi??yc” something we are in danger?

Moon this weekend will look really special. But there are some who will not go for a walk. Out of fear. For a long time functioned a lot of superstitions about “Superksi??yca”. He was to cause distress to the animals, strange behavior in humans, an increased number of suicides or just higher tides.

The fact remains, only the higher tides, but only about 3-4 cm. Other myths refute hard police statistics.

How best to watch?

Take a place from which we will have a good view of the southern horizon. May be a good choice meadow north shore of the lake and a balcony with views to the south.

On Sunday, the moon rises at Warsaw approx. 20.50 – almost flush with the sunset.

Moon was at the point nearest the Earth’s orbit, perigee, around 14 Polish time. Therefore, both Saturday night June 22 and Sunday June 23 is good for his observation – says NASA.

Another opportunity to see Superksi??yc, it happens only in August 2014.

Superksi??yc will seem about 14 per cent larger and up to 30 percent brighter than normal full-time.
