Chemists Create Modular System for Placing Proteins on Membranes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
With a tag, an anchor and a cage that can be unlocked with light, chemists have devised a simple, modular system that can locate proteins at the membrane of a cell. "If you're trying to emulate the way nature does this, you need a lot of complex machinery," said Andrew Rudd, a graduate student in chemistry and biochemistry at the University of California, San Diego.

Top Five Industries for Chemical-Related Incidents
Chemical & Engineering News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A Centers for Disease Control & Prevention review of chemical accidents in nine states lays out the top five industries for evacuations and injuries between 1999 and 2008. The top five chemicals involved in those accidents were carbon monoxide, ammonia, chlorine, hydrochloric acid, and sulfuric acid, the report says. More


Newly Found Stem Cell State Closer to Transitional Precipice
Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Among the mysteries of embryonic developing are the cellular events that cause some cells to realize an embryonic fate, and others to give rise to placental tissue. At some point, cell lineages diverge, but where, exactly? Embryonic lineages may emerge from embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells, which are generally considered pluripotent, not totipotent, because they have not been thought capable of giving rise to extraembryonic cell types, specifically, placental trophoblasts.

Understanding Thermo-Mechanical Properties of a New Class of Materials
Science Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A new paper by a team of researchers led by Karel Matous, College of Engineering Associate Professor of Computational Mechanics in the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, describes how an accurate statistical description of heterogeneous particulate materials, which is used within statistical micromechanics theories, governs the overall thermo-mechanical properties.

Discovery Changes How Scientists Examine Rarest Elements of Periodic Table
Lab Manager    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
According to new research by a Florida State University professor, californium is what's known to be a transitional element, meaning it links one part of the Periodic Table of Elements to the next. Why's that important? Despite the fact that you may have memorized the periodic table in high school chemistry, there is actually very little known about the elements at the very end of the table.

Virus Hiding in Our Genome Protects Early Human Embryos
New Scientist    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
We may owe our survival and complexity to a stowaway virus that springs to life in the very first cells of human embryos. Not only does the virus seem to protect embryos from other viruses, but it also assists genes when the groundwork is under way for the body plan of a new human. The finding backs the controversial idea that viruses which took up residence in our DNA millions of years ago may be playing the role of puppet master, quietly influencing our existence and evolution.

Cell Type Responsible for Scarring, Skin-cancer Growth Identified
Bioscience Technolgoy    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A skin cell responsible for scarring, and a molecule that inhibits the cell’s activity, have been identified by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The molecule slowed wound healing in mice but alleviated scarring, the researchers said. The researchers also found that the cell may play a role in the growth of melanoma and in skin damage caused by radiation. A drug that acts in the same way as the inhibitory molecule is already approved for use in humans as a treatment for type-2 diabetes. More
