Powered by Firework Although the outbreak of coronavirus has disrupted several major sporting events around the globe, cricket in India has still remain unaffected, despite the recent positive cases of COVID-19 infections across the country. Although questions were raised about the upcoming 2020 IPL season, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly last week officially confirmed that the blockbuster annual cricket league of the country is ‘very much on’, in addition to some necessary precautions. However, The recent sanctions imposed by the Government of India may deal a huge blow to the league!Advertisement Image Courtesy: IPLIPL is the most followed cricket league in the world. A number of foreign players arrive in India to join up with their respective franchises, along with several ICC officials and media from abroad, and last but not the least, an enormous crowd of supporters from other nations that gather up in the venues.Although BCCI recently spoke about several precautionary measures they will be conducting during the matches, the government’s latest decision might prove detrimental to IPL this year.Advertisement There has been over 60 confirmed  cases of coronavirus infection in India. Recently, WHO declared the COVID-19 outbreak as pandemic, and yesterday, the Indian govt officially imposed a visa ban on foreigners coming to India, and has also suspended the existing visas of all foreigners that are currently staying in India, except diplomats, until 15th April.On the other hand, starting this 29th March, IPL will run till 24th May. A visa restriction can effectively cancel out the foreign players’ participation in the league, along with a blow to the huge foreign crowd presence that flies to the country every year during IPL.Advertisement “The present scenario is a huge challenge for the BCCI-IPL and it is one where the circumstances are changing every few hours, and the BCCI has no control over these circumstances,” a BCCI official spoke to IANS.However, BCCI themselves are hopeful on tackling an emergency condition, ensuring the 13th edition of the blockbuster league conducts peacefully.“As is usually the case in such situations, the BCCI would be in regular touch with the concerned departments to take the best possible course of action in the interest of the game, the players, the fans and the league,” the official added.Also read-Corona finds the net: Bundesliga defender Timo Hubers first high profile player to test positive for CoronavirusSourav Ganguly gives massive update on IPL 2020 amid Coronavirus fears Advertisementlast_img read more

Cellular Cowboys: How the Cell Rounds Up Chromosomes Before Dividing

first_imgTwo cancer researchers from UC San Diego describe mitosis (cell division) in the Mar. 4 issue of Nature.1  Pulling together the latest findings about this elaborate and important process, they begin by describing the puzzle that the cell needs to solve:At the beginning of mitosis, the process of cell division, chromosomes are organized randomly – like jigsaw puzzle pieces spread out on the floor.  Their constituent two ‘sister chromatids’, each of which contains one of the two identical DNA molecules produced by replication, must be oriented such that they will be pulled in opposite directions into the two newly forming cells.  Like a jigsaw, the solution for correctly orienting all chromosomes comes partly through trial and error.  Mechanisms must exist to eliminate wrong configurations while selecting the right ones.In the article, they describe how cables (microtubules) connect to handles (kinetochores) on the chromosomes and start pulling them in opposite directions.  Another enzyme dissolves the molecular “glue” in the centrosomes that hold the sister chromatids together, so that the opposite poles of the spindle can pull them apart into the daughter cells.    A newly-described “highly-conserved enzyme” (i.e., identical in yeast and vertebrates), named Aurora B kinase, somehow finds chromosomes that lack an attachment to the other pole of the spindle, and fixes them.  Apparently this enzyme is able to identify chromosomes that are incorrectly lassoed to the same pole (syntelic attachment) and therefore are not under tension.  Only when there is tension on each chromosome, pulling the sister chromatids toward opposite poles, will the process continue.  “Finding out how Aurora B identifies and corrects them is an obvious next step,” the authors say.Ian M. Cheeseman and Arshad Desai, “Cell division: Feeling tense enough?”, Nature 428, 32 – 33 (04 March 2004); doi:10.1038/428032b.First of all, think of how many parts are involved in this process.  Then realize that without high fidelity duplication and segregation during cell division, an organism would be subject to cancer, genetic disease or death.  Furthermore, any alleged evolution would quickly come to a grinding halt, because natural selection is highly dependent on accurate replication for selected traits to be preserved.    To visualize what goes on in mitosis, think of the following analogy.  (Analogies, though never precise, and inadequate as proofs, can help make complex processes approachable.)  Let’s head out West and picture a team of cowboys who need to split a herd of cattle for market.  The cattle in our hypothetical herd all have identical twins that are yoked together.  They are wandering aimlessly in a corral, and two teams of cowboys are standing at opposite ends of the corral with lassos in hand.  On cue, the corral fence (the nuclear membrane) drops.  The cowboys immediately go into action, lassoing every cow in sight.    Their goal is to split the herd into identical halves.  To accomplish this, each team has to catch one of each pair: Bob, on the north team, lassos one of the twins, and Joe, on the south team, lassos the other.  As soon as a cow is caught, the cowboy starts pulling.  Sometimes, however, two guys on the same team catch both twins.  That’s when wrangler Chuck (Aurora B kinase) rides through the herd, looking at ropes that aren’t taut, indicating pairs hitched to the same team.  Chuck removes one of the ropes and lets the other team lasso the twin.  As the ropers keep applying tension, the boss makes sure all the pairs are lined up, each with one rope pulling a cow north and another rope pulling its twin south.  Then another wrangler breaks the yokes, and the cowboys wind in their ropes, pulling their half of the herd into the new north and south corrals.    The difference in cells is that they don’t have sentient cowboys with eyes and ears doing the work by using their brains and roping skills.  Instead, cables called microtubules extend outward blindly at random from the spindle poles, looking for attachment points on the kinetochores at the middle of the chromosomes.  Tension is applied by molecular motors (see 02/25/2003 headline), like winches, that pull the chromatids into the daughter cells.  How can a cell make sure one and only one cable gets attached to each chromatid?  This is awesome.  Consider also that all the machinery, all the ropes, all the winches, all the corrals, all the procedures and everything else is produced by the DNA in the chromosomes, as if the cattle were the master controller and supplier for the cowboys!  For photomicrographs of mitosis, see the illustrations at the Florida State University and the University of Maryland websites.    Mitosis is a coordinated team project that is done exactly right by the cell every time it divides.  Mistakes by cowboys might mean a lawsuit or the loss of business, but in the cell, a mistake can mean death.  The process is amazing enough as described, but then the authors throw in “the rest of the story” to boggle Darwinian minds beyond all hope of recovery.  What they described was for yeast – a “primitive” form of life.  What happens in vertebrates, like us humans?  Get ready:In contrast to budding yeast, kinetochores of other eukaryotes bind multiple microtubules (about 20 in humans).  These larger kinetochores must coordinate all these microtubules and also deal with incorrect attachments in which microtubules from opposite spindle poles connect to a single kinetochore (termed ‘merotely’).  Another study, in this month’s Nature Cell Biology, found that Aurora B does not merely detach syntelic kinetochores from microtubules in vertebrates – it orchestrates the coordinated disassembly of all the microtubules that are bound to each kinetochore, so that the syntelically oriented chromosomes move towards the spindle poles before they are bi-oriented.    Although sister kinetochore geometry seems to be dispensable in budding yeasts with their single-microtubule-connected kinetochores, it could contribute to reducing merotely, as implied by the conservation of this aspect of chromosome architecture throughout eukaryotic evolution.  Tackling the extra dimension that the multiplicity of microtubule-binding sites at kinetochores introduces will undoubtedly be another brain-teaser – and a particularly important one, too, because the loss of a single chromosome can be lethal, and aberrant numbers of chromosomes can contribute to birth defects and cancer.Isn’t evolution wonderful.  It blindly found a way to solve multi-dimensional jigsaw puzzles correctly every time, and hung onto its invention for millions of years.  It started a successful cattle ranching business, employing blind cowboys.  Its advertisement boasts, “Satisfying customers since 2 billion years B.C.”  Would you trust such hype?    One last thought.  Remember the 02/13/2003 headline last year?  It reported that meiosis (cell division for sexual reproduction) is even “much more complex” than mitosis, but there was no evidence it had evolved from the “simpler” process of mitosis.  These are bad days to work for Charlie on the Lazy E Ranch.  Better quit the outfit while you can and join up with the Boss who knows the business.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits

Animals Overcome Limitations of Physics

first_imgThe limits of human engineering have been overcome by animals in surprising ways worth imitating.Cochlea secrets improve sound reception:  Why does the cochlea in the mammalian inner ear have two fluid-filled chambers?  Prof. Marcel van der Heijden at Erasmus Medical Center, University Medical Center, Rotterdam, wanted to know.  He found that the leading “resonance theory” is wrong; experiments have shown that lab imitations can either get frequency tuning or amplification, but not both.  Van der Heijden’s new model based on the cochlea’s two-chamber design can carry waves and do spectral analysis simultaneously, because it “displays strong structural and behavioral similarities to the cochlea.”  The living cochlea, though, still excels in its ability to perform “multiband dynamic range compression” and “automatic gain control,” among other advanced features.  The new work relies on the theory of “optical coherence tomography.”  The article goes into some detail about how the cochlea works.Shrimp sees cancer:  The mantis shrimp has been a frequent focus of engineering interest for its amazing eyes (1/29/14, 3/31/08 #5) and claws (7/06/14).  Now, an interdisciplinary team at the University of Queensland believes that sensors modeled on the mantis shrimp eye could detect cancer.  PhysOrg says, “Mantis shrimp eyes are inspiring the design of new cameras that can detect a variety of cancers and visualise brain activity.”  That’s because “the shrimp’s compound eyes are superbly tuned to detect polarised light, providing a streamlined framework for technology to mimic.”Butterfly photonics:  One of the early biomimetic stories concerned “photonic crystals” found on insect wings and bird feathers – structures that manipulate light without pigment (1/29/03).  PNAS just published a paper by Harvard scientists who made “Bioinspired micrograting arrays mimicking the reverse color diffraction elements evolved by the butterfly Pierella luna.”  Although evolution was on the lips of the UK team (“In the course of evolution, many organisms have developed unique light manipulation strategies…”), it was not in their techniques.  Those involved intelligent design: “Exploiting and improving the butterfly’s strategy, we create photonic materials that increase our basic understanding of the optical interplay of hierarchical structures and provide a platform for the development of novel photonic devices.”  Among them, Live Science reported, could be “counterfeit-proof tech” because the material is “difficult to create”.Beetle paint:  A related article on PhysOrg discusses a more “natural route” to photonics being investigated across the pond by Oxford scientists: “Researchers take cells from chrysalis and use them to grow butterfly wings in the lab.”  Judging from the durability of these photonic crystals in fossils, it should be possible to create long-lasting colored surfaces that could be painted on.  “They point out that such materials would never fade, noting that similar beetles from millions of years ago that have been unearthed, still have the same colors that had when alive,” the article concludes. “They also note that they believe what they’ve discovered is only the beginning—they envision a host of products grown from a wide variety of cells from fish, peacocks, and many types of insects.”Membrane tech:  A researcher at the University of Leeds sees “endless possibilities for bio-nanotechnology,” says PhysOrg, thanks to the imitation of lipid membranes that cells use to enclose their systems.  That “thin skin” that surrounds biological cells “can be applied to synthetic surfaces,” also mimicking the active transport cells use to control what goes in and out.  The university is using nano-lithography and atomic force microscopy in its attempts, “with high precision, to create novel hybrid bio-electronic devices.”Dolphin sonar:  A physical limitation that challenged man-made sonar systems has been overcome by imitating dolphins.  PhysOrg headlined its story, “Dolphin-inspired sonar overcomes size-wavelength limitation.”  That limitation arises when the size of the sonar arrays is much larger than the wavelength.  The article attributes mastery of sonar to evolution, winning an “Amazing” award as well as “Stupid Evolution Quote of the Week” –While this problem plagues man-made sonar, Yangtze finless porpoises don’t seem to have the same limitation. Through millions of years of evolution and natural selection, the animal has developed a relatively small head (compared to man-made sonar) that can manipulate acoustic waves into a beam with high directivity. Porpoises and dolphins use these highly efficient biosonars for foraging, avoiding predators, and group coordination. Studies have shown that, despite serious vision degradation in water, dolphins can locate centimeter-sized objects 100 meters away using echolocation.Don’t forget us plants:  A clumsy-looking electric “plant” named PLANTOID begins an article on Science Daily about “Robotic solutions inspired by plants.”  The prototype in the picture has “a 3D-printed ‘trunk‘, ‘leaves‘ that sense the environment and ‘roots‘ that grow and change direction.”  Why would a robot designer make like a leaf?  “Humans naturally understand problems and solutions from an animal’s perspective, tending to see plants as passive organisms that don’t ‘do’ much of anything, but plants do move, and they sense, and they do so in extremely efficient ways.”  Because “plants are very efficient in terms of their energy consumption during motion,” using no muscles, your future surgery could benefit from this research.The shrilk joy of it all:  New Scientist has an updated account of Shrilk, a new bio-friendly replacement for plastic made from spider silk and shrimp exoskeleton.  This might be a far better replacement than the current material that Salee Adee says is still inhabiting a landfill somewhere with your baby diapers.  That old polyethylene plastic may last a few centuries more.  A photo shows what shrilk looks like: “a tough, biodegradable replacement for world-choking plastics.”Nano-mold:  Harvard’s Wyss Center for Biologically Inspired Engineering achieved a “significant breakthrough” in nano-technology.  PhysOrg says they have constructed tiny structures made from a familiar biological molecule: DNA.  This ability allows them to “form tiny 3D metal nanoparticles in prescribed shapes and dimensions using DNA, Nature’s building block, as a construction mold.”  A sheet of paper is 100,000 nanometers thick; these DNA molds are as small as 25 nanometers.  “The properties of DNA that allow it to self assemble and encode the building blocks of life have been harnessed, re-purposed and re-imagined for the nano-manufacturing of inorganic materials,” one of the team members said. “This capability should open up entirely new strategies for fields ranging from computer miniaturization to energy and pathogen detection.”Pitcher this:  The Wyss Center also came up with a bio-inspired material for coating medical devices, PhysOrg said.  The material, called SLIPS, repels blood, prevents clotting, and resists bacterial biofilms.  Where’d they get the idea?  “Inspired by the slippery surface of the carnivorous pitcher plant, which enables the plant to capture insects, SLIPS repels nearly any material it contacts.”Design is everywhere from Atlanta to Zoo:  Georgia Tech’s Center for Biologically Inspired Design has created an iPhone app called ZooScape to raise public awareness about biomimetics and to encourage conservation of the animals that have inspired new technologies.  Though usable anywhere, the app becomes interactive at the Atlanta Zoo, where visitors can interact with the lessons in physics coming from animal inspiration.  PhysOrg has a short video clip where Marc Weissburg, professor of Biology at Georgia Tech, says, with feeling, “Animals are really amazing in the things that they do, and we learn so much from them, that there’s actually not one that I don’t look at and say, ‘Wow, that’s really cool!’”  The clip gives an example: flamingoes have a water filter in their beaks that we don’t fully understand, but it might help us improve water faucets some day.  Joe Mendelson, adjunct professor and herpetologist at the zoo, echoed Weissburg’s sentiments. “There’s so much we have learned and still have to learn about animals,” he said. “They’re experts at navigating their environments successfully, and it turns out that sometimes all we have to do to improve our own systems and efficiency is to sit back and watch them do what they already do so well.”Read how Evolution News & Views responded to the Darwinians’ efforts to insert themselves into biomimetics where they don’t belong, trying to make themselves look relevant to the Design Revolution.
