Diamond treasures in Russias north


, : Diamond treasures in Russias north. Science in Russia 2001(1): 82-88

Russia's North has long been famous for its proverbial wealth of fur and wood, salmon and river pearl, beast and fowl, berries and mushrooms. Only, as if on purpose, has Mother Nature hidden from people mineral deposits deep down there. Advancing and melting time and again, the glaciers after the last hundreds of thousands of years have left behind massive layers of sand and mud, which have locked the underground treasures as if for good. This is why the way to the discovery of diamond fields in the 1980s and 1990s of the 20th century was so long and thorny.

Numerous studies have focused on the transcriptional signatures that underlie the maintenance of embryonic stem cell (ESC) pluripotency. However, it remains unclear whether ESC retain transcriptional aberrations seen in in vitro cultured embryos....

Evidence was obtained which supports the hypothesis that the firm colonies of Nostoc verrucosum, but not the softer ones of N. commune, can accumulate phosphate from the environment by non-active means. This accumulation of phosphate was reduced b...

Following single intravenous doses of 65Zn, rate of excretion was studied in experiments designed to separate the physiological effects of a zinc deficiency per se from those of level of dietary zinc. Fecal excretion of 65Zn was higher in normals...
