Metabolomic Profiling Identifies Taurine as New MS Therapeutic

News

New research suggests that administering taurine, a molecule naturally produced by human cells, could boost the effectiveness of current multiple sclerosis (MS) therapies. The discovery also highlights the potential for a technique called “metabolomic profiling,” which can identify useful endogenous metabolites the body already makes in small quantities, such as taurine, for new applications in drug therapies.

Data Storage at the Single Molecule Level

News

A research team from Kiel University has now not only managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface, but they have also used interactions which were previously regarded as obstructive to improve the molecule's storage capacity.

The Microbiological Art of Making a Better Sausage

News

Fermented sausages can vary in taste quality depending on whether the fermentations begin “spontaneously”, or using a commercial starter culture. Scientists found that commercial starter culture produced sausages with higher acidity, and inferior taste, as compared with spontaneous fermentation. Using Next Generation Sequencing techniques, the investigators identified the relevant microbes and mapped the metabolic pathways, and used gas chromatography with mass spectrometry (GC-MS), to determine and quantify the metabolites produced during fermentation.
