Scientists Found a Turning Point at the Elevation of 4,500m for Polycythemia Incidence in Tibetans

  Tibetans are considered well adapted to high altitude, but whether there is a limit of elevation they can adapt to the low oxygen environment has not been tested. Recently, scientists found a turning point at the elevation of 4,500m for polycythemia incidence in Tibetans. This is the first evidence showing a sharp change of physiological conditions of Tibetans who were thought to have succ... more

  Foraging in termites, and in most ants, is a collective task during which the risk of predation is high. While basic chemical and primary behavioral analyses have shown that ants may detect termite trail and colony odors as well as termite alarm pheromones, the detection of termites by ants through eavesdropping remains less well understood.

Scientists Found Metformin Suppressed Triple-negative Breast Cancer Stem Cells

  Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer and a leading cause of cancer death in women. Breast cancer could be divided into four subtypes: Luminal A, Luminal B, HER2, and Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC). TNBC, accounts for around 15% of all breast cancer cases, is an aggressive and heterogeneous disease with poor prognosis and the shortest survival rate because of no targete... more
