Gene engineering lowers cholesterol in mice
Biomedical researchers have used a genetic engineering technique to turn off a gene that regulates cholesterol levels in adult mice.
Skin patch to shrink unwanted fat works on mice
Imagine using a medicated skin patch to burn off areas of unwanted fat, including those ‘love handles.’
Mice born to stressed mothers are more likely to binge eat
New research suggested binge eating behavior is partially inherited. In lab tests, scientists found mice born to stressed mothers were more likely to display binge eating behaviors later in life.
Transplanted stem cells become eggs in sterile mice
With an assist, an old mouse might be able to make new eggs.
Scratching is catching in mice
Catch sight of someone scratching and out of nowhere comes an itch, too. Now, it turns out mice suffer the same strange phenomenon.
Researchers switch on predatory kill instinct in mice
Researchers at Yale University, in the US, have isolated the brain circuitry that coordinates predatory hunting, according to a study in the January 12 issue of Cell. One set of neurons in the amygdala, the brain's center of emotion and motivation, cues the animal to pursue prey.
Mice may be key to kids' asthma attacks at school
Research investigating schoolchildren's asthma attacks has pointed to a tiny foe: Mice.
Why are we ticklish?
Of all physical sensations, ticklishness is perhaps the most mysterious. Why do we laugh in response to tickling? Why are certain body parts more ticklish? Why can we not tickle ourselves?
Healthy mice from lab-grown eggs
Japanese scientists say they have created healthy baby mice from eggs they made entirely in the lab using a sample of mouse skin cells.
Spinal cord injuries in mice treated with neuron transplants
Mice with spinal cord injuries had increased bladder control and reduced neuropathic pain after receiving injections of human stem cells, according to researchers.
MICE teaches how humans can survive on Mars
A project to send humans to colonize another planet in Earth's solar system is using MICE to test what scientists know about living in space.
Mutant mice become 'super sniffers'
US scientists have mutated mice to turn them into ‘super sniffers’.
Sunscreen delays melanoma in mice
Applying 30 SPF sunscreen to mice before they were exposed to ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation delayed the development of melanoma, researchers report.
New clues in mice link cholesterol to fertility
Whether made by the body or ingested through diet, cholesterol plays a vital role in cells. Cholesterol is a building block of steroids and hormones, including those that trigger puberty and support pregnancy. A new study implicates a surprising regulator of cholesterol in cells' ability to make these hormones, especially in tissues associated with fertility, such as the ovaries.
High salt prevents weight gain in mice
In a study that seems to defy conventional dietary wisdom, University of Iowa scientists have found that adding high salt to a high-fat diet actually prevents weight gain in mice.
