soon place their trust in an unusual ally: the mouse Scientists have genetically engineered mice to be ultrasensitive to specific smells paving the way for animals that are “tuned” to sniff out land mines or chemical signatures of diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Trained rats and dogs have long been used to detect the telltale smell of TNT in land mines and research suggests that dogs can smell the trace chemical signals of low blood sugar or certain types of cancer Mice also have powerful sniffers: They sport about 1200 genes dedicated to odorant receptors cellular sensors that react to a scent’s chemical signature That’s a few hundred less than rats and about the same as dogs (Humans have a paltry 350) Paul Feinstein wants to upgrade the mouse’s already sensitive nose For the last decade the neurobiologist at Hunter College in New York City has been studying how odorant receptors form on the surface of neurons within the olfactory system During development each olfactory neuron specializes to express a single odorant receptor which binds to chemicals in the air to detect a specific odor In other words each olfactory neuron has a singular receptor that senses a particular smell Normally there is an even distribution of receptors throughout the system so each receptor can be found in about 01% of mouse neurons Feinstein wondered if he could make the mouse’s nose pay more attention to particular scents by making certain odorant receptors more numerous He and colleagues developed a string of DNA that when injected into the nucleus of a fertilized mouse egg appears to make olfactory neurons more likely to develop one particular odorant receptor than the others This receptor called M71 detects acetophenone a chemical that smells like jasmine When the team added four or more copies of the DNA sequence to a mouse egg a full 1% of neurons carried it—10 times more than normal In the same lab Hunter College postdoctoral researcher Charlotte D’Hulst was trying in vain to splice human olfactory genes into a mouse’s genome For some reason a tried-and-true gene swapping method just wasn’t working So she teamed up with Feinstein and used his technique to introduce a human odorant receptor OR1A1—modified with Feinstein’s DNA sequence—into mice OR1A1 detects a chemical with a peppermintlike smell It worked And this time they found the OR1A1 receptor in a whopping 13% of the olfactory neurons “We changed the probability of choice in our favor” D’Hulst says “even though we still don’t really know how this DNA sequence drives choice” To figure out how these changes affect a mouse’s sense of smell the researchers gave both the genetically engineered and ordinary mice a choice of two water bottles one of which was diluted with trace amounts of chemicals that triggered either M71 or OR1A1 If the mice drank from the pure water nothing happened but if they drank from the diluted water they would receive an uncomfortable injection that made them feel queasy The researchers kept lowering the concentration of the chemicals to see if the mice could detect and therefore avoid it Both types of super-sniffer mice were able to detect the odors at much lower concentrations preferentially seeking out the pure water The M71 mice were about twice as sensitive and the OR1A1 mice about 100 times as sensitive to their respective chemicals as were ordinary mice the researchers write today in Cell Reports Feinstein predicts that with more tweaking his introduced DNA sequence can achieve even greater sensitivity—to a limit “We’re not sure where the break point is the point of diminishing returns” he says “But I believe we can increase it further” The work looks “very encouraging” says Alexander Fleischmann a neuroscientist at the Collège de France in Paris who also studies odorant receptors in mice But he wants to know whether the technique holds up across a broader range of settings For example would mice exhibit different behaviors if they were tempted with rewards for scent detection rather than punished with an uncomfortable injection as they were in this study It’s more than an academic question Behavioral conditioning that relies upon punishment he says involves split-second reactions in the brain that differ from the situations mice would face in a real-world scenario There’s also a question of signal-to-noise More receptors also means more olfactory signal going to the brain and in his own work Fleischmann has seen that the brain’s olfactory bulb tends to flatten out spikes in odor signals That might potentially limit the effectiveness of boosting the proportion of a particular receptor Meanwhile Feinstein says the new technique could help answer bigger questions including decoding the “black box” of the human olfactory system—so called because so little is known about how the human brain processes smells If the researchers could make a mouse for each human odorant receptor—their stated goal—they could discover which chemicals trigger each receptor something only imperfectly understood today “We believe that by using this technique we finally have the tools to crack the olfactory code” he says There are practical applications as well The work could help engineers create a “nose-on-a-chip” for example that would allow say fragrance manufacturers to more precisely tailor their scents Feinstein also envisions translating the technique to rats to create supersniffing land mine detectors able to detect TNT at extremely low concentrations which would allow them to find well-hidden or disguised dangers In addition the biosensors could also be used to detect trace chemical signatures of diseases “It doesn’t have to be a smell” Feinstein explains “You can get biosignatures for diseases like Parkinson’s Alzheimer’s or tuberculosis—anything that causes a chemical change in our bodily fluid that can be detected” he said. ’cause nobody would be that way in

more than 15 outposts and an equal number of villages were affected by the shelling and firing The Jammu and Kashmir government was forced to close more than a dozen schools in the radius of five-kilometre from the border in view of shelling Many others along the five-kilometre radius from the border are likely to be shut for some days A man crying after his brother was injured in the firing in Arnia village Image courtesy Mir Imran Recently in more than a dozen villages in north Kashmir’s Uri which was relatively calm since 2012 Pakistan disturbingly used heavy artillery for the first time to target the civilian population according to officials Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti whose tenure has been marked by violence both inside and on borders expressed her frustration over the violence "Continued firing on the border in Jammu is a cause of painand worry Sad that while our country took the lead in starting peace initiatives with cessation of operations during Ramzan Pakistan has shown no respect whatsoever for this holy month"Mufti tweeted "Pakistan will have to reciprocateand contribute to efforts for lasting peace Everyone must realise that violence is a zero-sum game My deepest condolences to families of victims" she said "It is unfortunate that our every effort to bring peace in the region is met with violence by Pakistan" Sat Pal Sharma a senior BJP leader from the state told Firstpost on phone from Jammu Hitting the open road and driving into the sunset is a romantic notion but most of us need a little planning before road trip Do you go north Do you go south Do you take a week Do you take a month What are the best stops to make And there are a million more questions to be asked Randy Olson a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania mapped out a super-efficient and super-ambitious way to see the contiguous United States He devised his cross-country road trip combining algorithms and Google Maps so he could visit 48 capitol buildings "For this road trip there is one goal: to take a picture at as many US state capitols as possible" Olson wrote on his blog "We will travel only by car so that rules out Alaska (too far away) and Hawaii (requires a plane flight) and leaves us with the 48 contiguous states (excluding DC)" “Whenever possible we will avoid routes that require us to travel through foreign countries as entering/leaving the country requires a passport and border control tends to slow things down" To start he found the "true" distance between all of the capitols by car and then the shortest route by road between every capitol amounting to 2256 directions He did a lot more math you can read that here before determining his final itinerary Randy Olson The algorithm "reached an optimized solution that makes a complete trip to all of the US state capitols in only 13310 miles (21420 km) of driving" he wrote That came out to visiting those 48 US state capitols in 85 days "The best part is that this road trip is designed so that you can start anywhere on the route" he noted "As long as you follow the route from wherever you start youll hit every state capitol in the 48 contiguous US states" This article originally appeared on TravelandLeisurecom Contact us at [email protected] You know that once your in-laws dogs like you, suffers from chronic food shortages and
