Cells’ Mitochondria Work Much Like Tesla Battery PacksNews
UCLA researchers have shown that mitochondria are made up of many individual bioelectric units that generate energy in an array, similar to a Tesla electric car battery that packs thousands of battery cells to manage energy safely and provide fast access to very high current.
Personalized Immunotherapy Refined by Mass Spec-Machine Learning PairingNews
A combination of mass spectrometry and a novel computational tool is more accurately identifying the molecular signs of cancer likely to be presented to helper T cells, which stimulate and orchestrate the immune response to tumors and infectious agents.READ MORE
How Do Empty Spaces Make a Protein Unstable?News
Partial unfolding of proteins may affect their stability and is a challenge in the industry. So how does a cavity destabilize a protein? Would such a cavity be empty? These are questions that researchers from Aarhus University answer in a new study.READ MORE
Device Identifies Airborne Hazards RapidlyNews
Scientists have developed a portable device that can identify a wide range of airborne gases and chemicals instantly. The device is suitable for rapid deployment to identify airborne hazards from tiny gas molecules like sulfur dioxide to large molecules like benzene.
Researchers have discovered a unique type of immune cell in human breast tissue – breast cancer patients with more of these cells are more likely to survive.READ MORE
New brain imaging research debunks a controversial theory about dyslexia that can impact how it is sometimes treated, and addresses the role of the cerebellum in the disorder.READ MORE
Researchers have offered a new hypothesis about how ovarian cancer forms and suggest how it might be prevented.READ MORE
A home-cooked meal has many benefits, including healthier ingredients and fewer processed foods. But there’s another reason to avoid eating out all the time. Preparing meals at home can reduce your exposure to harmful PFAS chemicals that are commonly found in take-out and fast food packaging.READ MORE
Scientists present a new addition to the promising CRISPR toolkit called CRISPR-BEST. This tool operates with an efficient method to create mutations in actinomycetes without requiring a DNA double-stranded break.READ MORE
