Kidney Stone Crystallization
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Students learn how crystallization and inhibition occur by examining calcium oxalate crystals with and without inhibitors that are capable of altering crystallization. Kidney stones are composed of calcium oxalate crystals, and engineers and doctors experiment with these crystals to determine how growth is affected when a potential drug is introduced. Students play the role of engineers by trying to determine which inhibitor would be the best for blocking crystallization.

"Positive organizational change doesn’t just happen It requires powerful strategy that can balance proven methodology with creative application Most enterprises want to sustain growth while also creating value, navigating complexity, and promoting innovation These aspirations have increased the demand for professional management consulting services A new article in Global Business and Organizational Excellence examines how strategic human resource development (HRD) consulting can transform performance metrics -- from productivity and quality to employee engagement and profitability Using a real-world example, the work highlights the concept of energizing, redesigning, and gelling (ERG) -- an alternative way to think about organizational development and change ERG helps leaders strategically align learning and development with other components of organizational design to execute an organization's overall goal Too many organizational change efforts fail....."

New mechanism for plant growth-promoting bacteria: modifying the plants’ DNA methylation pattern

It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Underground plant-associated microbiomes – soil, root, and rhizosphere – are critical to plant health and growth. Plant growth-promoting bacteria (PGPB) are being identified and tested to increase crop productivity and improve sustainability. However, the bacteria introduced as PGPB usually do not persist in soils, despite improving plant growth. If PGPB are promoting plant growth without establishing in the environment or plant microbiome, how are they continuing to influence plant growth? To answer this question, a recent study examined the influence of PGPB treatment on pokeweed. The PGPB inocula in this study had little influence on the rhizosphere microbiome assembly and did not colonize the plant roots. Instead, the PGPB induced DNA methylation in the roots. Methylation is an epigenetic mechanism that influences which genes are expressed and is sometimes passed on to offspring..."

The Once and Future City
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

What is a city? What shapes it? How does its history influence future development? How do physical form and institutions vary from city to city and how are these differences significant? How are cities changing and what is their future? This course will explore these and other questions, with emphasis upon twentieth-century American cities. A major focus will be on the physical form of cities—from downtown and inner-city to suburb and edge city—and the processes that shape them.

These questions and more are explored through lectures, readings, workshops, field trips, and analysis of particular places, with the city itself as a primary text. In light of the 2016 centennial of MIT’s move from Boston to Cambridge, the 2015 iteration of the course focused on MIT’s original campus in Boston’s Back Bay, and the university’s current neighborhood in Cambridge. Short field assignments, culminating in a final project, will provide students opportunities to use, develop, and refine new skills in “reading” the city.

Population Growth Curves

Rating
0.0 stars

Using Avida-ED freeware, students control a few factors in an environment populated with digital organisms, and then compare how changing these factors affects population growth. They experiment by altering the environment size (similar to what is called carrying capacity, the maximum population size that an environment can normally sustain), the initial organism gestation rate, and the availability of resources. How systems function often depends on many different factors. By altering these factors one at a time, and observing the results, students are able to clearly see the effect of each one.

"More than 1 million men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year Although effective therapies exist, resistance to androgen receptor-targeted therapy is a major challenge in managing the disease Unfortunately, the mechanisms behind therapy resistance are not yet fully understood In a recent study, researchers aimed to identify new targets for treatment against therapy-resistant prostate cancer Using gene expression analysis and 3-dimensional spheroid culture, they examined the interaction of prostate cancer (PCa) cells with cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) The results showed that CAFs in the tumor environment stimulate cholesterol and steroid production in PCa cells This was mediated by pro-inflammatory, pro-migratory, and pro-angiogenic factors secreted by the CAFs, which upregulated genes involved in cholesterol synthesis Blocking cholesterol and steroid production using gene targeting or medication inhibited PCa cell growth Future studies will evaluate the mechanisms underlying the.."

Rock Candy Your Body
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Students see and learn how crystallization and inhibition occur by making sugar crystals with and without additives in a supersaturation solution, testing to see how the additives may alter crystallization, such as by improving crystal growth by more or larger crystals. After three days, students analyze the differences between the control crystals and those grown with additives, researching and attempting to deduce why certain additives blocked crystallization, showed no change or improved growth. Students relate what they learn from the rock candy experimentation to engineering drug researchers who design medicines for targeted purposes in the human body. Conduct the first half of this activity one day before presenting the associated lesson, Body Full of Crystals. Then conduct the second half of the activity.

"While best known for its role in the brain, serotonin does more in our body than influence mood. There is even growing evidence that it is involved in tumor development. However, little is known about its role in colorectal cancer. In a recent study, researchers found that serotonin promotes colon cancer cell growth in cell culture and animal models. Further tests revealed that serotonin is moved into colorectal cancer cells via its transporter SERT and that once the serotonin is inside the cancer cells, the enzyme TG2 links serotonin to the protein RhoA, activating it. Through down-stream signaling mediators, activated RhoA increases expression of the known cancer-promoting protein YAP. Blocking SERT from transporting serotonin with citalopram reversed the serotonin-induced YAP expression and cell proliferation increases and blocked serotonin’s effects on tumor formation in mice..."

The intestinal microbiota in young chickens impacts intestinal inflammation and growth performance

The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Farmed chickens often suffer from intestinal inflammation which negatively affects their feed intake, digestion, and growth performance. The gut microbial community has a known close relationship with growth performance, but how, or if, this microbiota influences intestinal inflammation is not yet known. To test this, researchers examined the microbiota in young chickens, focusing on the jejunum section of the gut. They found that 7-week-old chickens with high body weight tended to have a microbiota dominated by gram-positive bacteria, like Lactobacilli. But lower-body-weight chickens had a microbiota dominated by gram-negative bacteria, like Escherichia-Shigella. Gram-negative bacteria carry endotoxin (lipopolysaccharide), and consequently, these lower body weight chickens had more of it in their bloodstream. These elevated lipopolysaccharide levels activated inflammatory cytokines in the jejunum, causing damage to the gut barrier..."
