The ribosome makes the proteins that carry out key business for all forms of life. Messenger RNA carries DNA's genetic instructions to a cell's ribosome, which then cooks up the desired protein. Every living organism from bacteria to humans uses a ribosome, and they are all strikingly similar.

Obama's move overturns an order signed by President Bush in 2001 that barred the National Institutes of Health from funding research on embryonic stem cells beyond using 60 cell lines that existed at that time. Obama also signed a presidential memorandum establishing greater independence for federal science policies and programs.

The research is very early and would still require years of clinical trials in human patients before it could even be submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for possible approval.

Although results of trials with other microbicides in preventing HIV transmission have proved disappointing, the investigators in this study are hopeful that similar compounds might in the future be used to reduce HIV transmission in humans.

Researchers at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in Massachusetts removed a stumbling block in using so-called induced pluripotent stem cells, or iPS cells, by taking out potentially cancer-causing genes.

The finding suggests that giving vitamin D supplements to pregnant women and young children could reduce the risk of getting the disease. It also bolsters previous evidence implicating the so-called "sunshine" vitamin in the autoimmune disease, which affects 2.5 million people worldwide.

The state Health Department reports 521 cases, or 185 more than last week. The total compares with 2,099 cases at the same time last year. Health officials say 40 counties report flu activity this week and three people have been hospitalized.

Researchers said that previous studies have addressed the issue of clopidogrel responsiveness and stent thrombosis, but this is the largest one and the first one to use the newly developed multiple electrode platelet aggregometry (MEA) point-of-care assay.

Del Rey Tortilleria, which also makes tostadas and corn flour, failed to correct sanitary violations uncovered by federal officials in six inspections since 2003, a government lawsuit said. The plant, which used paint buckets to store raw ingredients, failed to take adequate measures to keep pests out and used "unhygienic practices," the suit said.
