Wildfires and climate change beneficial to some desert birds

Posted on 13. September, 2011.

Some bird species in the US desert southwest are less affected, and even positively influenced, by widespread fire through their habitat. Baylor University researchers say that fire actually helps some bird species because of the habitat that is formed after a fire is positive for the birds' prey needs. The study is published in the June 2011 issue of Conservation Biology.

The Promiscuous T-cell

Posted on 8. September, 2011.

T-cells are a vital type of white blood cell that scan for cellular abnormalities and infections. They recognise disease-associated antigens via a surface receptor called the T-cell antigen receptor (TCR). If there were a specific TCR for every single antigen, no mammal could possibly contain all the T-cells it needs. This suggests that T-cell recognition must be highly degenerate. Yet highly promiscuous TCRs would appear to be equally impossible: they are bound to recognise self as well as non-self antigens.  In the next issue of Science Progress, mathematical analysis helps to resolve the paradox of the promiscuous TCR.
