Will carbon dioxyde shorten our lifespan? Not entirely far-fetched. A remarkable study published in PLoS Biology shows that the destruction of a carbon dioxyde receptor in Drosophila flies shortens their lifespan considerably. A link between longevity and the nervous system of animals has been firmly established for some time, raising questions about the role of gazeous compounds in triggering responses for survival. Yet another effect of carbon dioxyde, far from greenhouse effects, but that may have had an important role in the past on the way the Earth has been populated by plants and animals.
Sulfur metabolism in plants. The 8th International Plant Sulfur Workshop entitled "Sulfur Metabolism in Plants: Mechanisms and Application to Food Security and Responses to Climate Change" will jointly be organized by the University of Melbourne, Australia and the University of Groningen, The Netherlands and will be held in the Department of Forest and Ecosystem Science, University of Melbourne, Water Street, Creswick, Victoria 3363, Australia, November 22 - 27, 2010.
Dimethylsulfone, an anticancer drug? A group of scientists from the University of Connecticut have studied this common compound, often found in plants, and have found a very strong antimetastatic effect of the compound.
pointer A marine bacterium at the rind of soft cheese. The exploration of the bacterial flora of the rind of soft cheese Livarot has uncovered the presence of a completely unexpected bacterium, Pseudoalteromonas haloplanktis, the model of which is found in Antarctica! this is understandable if one remembers that this bacterium grows extremely rapidly at low temperature (appropriate for cheese ripening), and that it stands high salt concentrations: Livarot is a rind salt-washed cheese.
