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.
A new study has found that a marked proportion of psoriasis patients remain untreated.READ MORE
Scientists have succeeded in synthesizing two complex products from a group which could be used in the development of new drugs.READ MORE
A novel technique would allow organizations to non-destructively scan computer chips to ensure that they haven’t been altered and that they are manufactured to design specifications without error.READ MORE
The ramifications of bacteria's ability to become resistant to antibiotics can be seen in hospitals, public places, our food supply, and our water. Now, researchers have demonstrated how we could improve upon the ability of nature's exquisitely selective collection of antimicrobial enzymes to attack bacteria in a way that's much less likely to cause bacterial resistance.READ MORE
Researchers have come up with a long-sought after algorithm, called the inverse chirp z-transform (ICZT).READ MORE
Scientists want to re-engineer stump skin to become resistant to rubbing and think that skin from the sole of the foot could be a viable alternative.READ MORE
The discovery in the 1990s that a mutation in a single gene of an experimental worm could double its lifespan set off a stampede of research on the molecular biology of aging and triggered hopes that drug therapies or other interventions could be developed to extend healthy human lifespan. But as is often the case in science, the genetic regulation of aging is more complicated than it first appeared.READ MORE
Pain is an incredibly complex condition. To better understand what pain-related changes may occur in the brain, a new study has identified receptors in the amygdala that could trigger an inhibitory, pain-relieving response.READ MORE
