Cracking the Code of Coenzyme Q Biosynthesis
Cracking the Code of Coenzyme Q Biosynthesis
News   Dec 15, 2017

Coenzyme Q is a vital cog in the body’s energy-producing machinery, a kind of chemical gateway in the conversion of food into cellular fuel. Researchers are developing new tools to shed light on CoQ function, primarily by finding and defining proteins that have a direct link to the chemical. This includes the development of a new multi-omic strategy to identify the global function of an RNA-binding protein that has long been associated with mitochondria and its role in CoQ biosynthesis.

Changes Identified in Body Cells During Type2 Diabetes Onset
Changes Identified in Body Cells During Type2 Diabetes Onset
News   Dec 14, 2017

Researchers have found fresh evidence to explain the processes that occur in the body’s cells leading to the onset of type2 diabetes. Utilising metabolomics, results showed that amino acids play a contributory role in the onset of type2 diabetes in some younger and older patients, as the metabolism of specific amino acids is adversely affected.

Nanotexturing Creates Bacteria-Killing Spikes on Stainless Steel Surfaces
News   Dec 14, 2017

By using an electrochemical etching process on a common stainless steel alloy, researchers have created a nanotextured surface that kills bacteria while not harming mammalian cells. If additional research supports early test results, the process might be used to attack microbial contamination on implantable medical devices and on food processing equipment made with the metal.
