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.
New research questions the ongoing hypothesis that the blunt force behind a traumatic brain injury (TBI) causes nerve damage, or axonal injury. The findings could influence the treatment of and development of new drugs for TBI.READ MORE
