Important mechanism involved in production of mosquito eggs identified

Diseases transmitted by mosquitoes have contributed to the death and suffering of millions throughout human history, earning the mosquito the title as the world's most dangerous animal. Even today, several devastating mosquito-borne diseases (such as malaria, dengue fever and West Nile virus) continue to rage. The urgent need to better control mosquito numbers and interfere with disease transmission has guided much mosquito research in laboratories worldwide

Blocking hormone could eliminate stress-induced infertility

Releasing brake on fertility restores normal reproductive behavior in rats despite stress University of California, Berkeley, scientists have discovered that chronic stress activates a hormone that reduces fertility long after the stress has ended, and that blocking this hormone returns female reproductive behavior to normal. While the experiments were conducted in rats, the researchers are optimistic that blocking the gene for the hormone - called gonadotropin inhibitory hormone (GnIH) - could help women overcome the negative reproductive consequences of stress. Stress is thought to be a major contributor to today's high levels of infertility: Approximately three-quarters of healthy couples under 30 have trouble conceiving within three months of first trying, while 15 percent are unable to conceive after a year

Study: fructose more harmful than table sugar in female mice

Study: fructose more harmful than table sugar in female mice By Megan Marsden Christensen January 7th, 2015 @ 8:31pm Douglas Cornwall, University of Utah SALT LAKE CITY High-fructose corn syrup may be more toxic than table sugar in female mice, a new study shows. University of Utah biologists came to this conclusion when they fed mice sugar in doses proportional to what humans consume and found it reduced the females' reproduction rates by 26.4 percent and increased their chance of death by 1.87 percent, according to a press release. The male mice, however, showed no difference between the sugars in terms of survival, reproduction or territoriality, which may mean both sugars are equally toxic for males, researchers said

Corn syrup more toxic than table sugar in female mice, study says

Published January 06, 2015 Corn syrup was found to be more toxic to female mice than table sugar, shortening their lives and cutting their rate of reproduction, according to a study by University of Utah researchers published online in a scientific journal on Monday. The research, funded by the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, is among the first to differentiate between the effects of the fructose-glucose mixture found in corn syrup and sucrose, or table sugar, said University of Utah biology professor Wayne Potts, senior author of the paper.

Newly discovered frog gives birth to live tadpoles, a first

Most frogs lay unfertilized eggs to reproduce, but some species have weird variations on the model. There are frogs that fertilize their eggs inside their bodies before laying them, and even ones that allow those eggs to hatch inside them and emerge as fully-formed froglets(fair warning, that link goes to a video of baby frogs squeezing out of holes in their mom's back). Now, for the first time, scientists have found a frog that gives birth to something in between: live, wriggling tadpoles.

Newly discovered fanged frog shocks science: Births live tadpoles

A recently discovered species of Indonesian frogs not only sports fangs in its jaws uniquely on the planet, it gives birth to live tadpoles. Most frogs lay eggs, from which tadpoles hatch and you know the rest. Limnonectes larvaepartus, a little amphibian from the rain forests of Sulawesi Island, is the only one of the world's 6,455 frog species to give direct birth to tadpoles, scientists said on Wednesday.
