Researchers Create DNA Repair Map of Entire Human Genome
Bioscience Technology    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When the common chemotherapy drugs cisplatin or oxaliplatin hit cancer cells, they damage DNA so that the cells can't replicate. But the cells have ways to repair the DNA. The cancer drugs aren't as effective as patients need. Researchers at the UNC School of Medicine and UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center have developed a method for finding where this DNA repair happens throughout all of human DNA. More

Human Gene Editing Has Arrived — Here's Why It Matters
New Scientist    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Gene editing is here. The first work attempting to edit human embryos grabbed headlines last week. And another study showed how gene editing might prevent children inheriting disease. It could be decades before it is safe to snip out and replace stretches of DNA to genetically engineer babies — even if it is deemed ethically acceptable. But the approach is already being tested for treating disease in adults and could soon be used to treat a wide range of disorders. More


New Study Data Could Lead to Reversal of Aging Process
Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There are many among us who believe that time is a predator, patiently waiting for our bodies to age and yield toward its inevitable fate. However, there are few within the sciences that look at the ageing process through a different lens — viewing it as a disease, one that can be treated, slowed, and possibly even reversed. Scientists from the Salk Institute and the Chinese Academy of Science have published new data that they believe identifies a key driver in the aging process. More

DNA Conjugates Deliver Transcription Factors Into Cells
Chemical & Engineering News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Transcription factors control how cells work because they activate specific genes to produce proteins. If used as drugs, the factors could be equally powerful by boosting underperforming cellular activities or turning on genes to treat medical conditions or diseases. But delivering transcription factors to specific cells or tissues without toxic side effects has proven difficult. More


Transforming All Donated Blood into a Universal Type
Lab Manager    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Every day, thousands of people need donated blood. But only blood without A- or B-type antigens, such as type O, can be given to all of those in need, and it's usually in short supply. Now scientists are making strides toward fixing the situation. In the American Chemical Society's Journal of the American Chemical Society, they report an efficient way to transform A and B blood into a neutral type that can be given to any patient. More

Chemists Strike Nano-Gold: Four New Atomic Structures for Gold Nanoparticle Clusters
Science Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Led by University of Nebraska-Lincoln chemistry professor Xiao Cheng Zeng, and former UNL visiting professor Yi Gao, new research has revealed four atomic arrangements of a gold nanoparticle cluster. The arrangements exhibit much lower potential energy and greater stability than a standard-setting configuration reported last year by a Nobel Prize-winning team from Stanford University. More

Bibliometric Mapping: Eight Decades of Analytical Chemistry, With Special Focus on the Use of Mass Spectrometry
Analytical Chemistry    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In this feature, we use automatic bibliometric mapping tools to visualize the history of analytical chemistry from the 1920s until the present. In particular, we have focused on the application of mass spectrometry in different fields. The analysis shows major shifts in research focus and use of mass spectrometry. We conclude by discussing the application of bibliometric mapping and visualization tools in analytical chemists' research. More

Metal-Organic Framework With a Fixed Composition Despite Initial Concentration of Components    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Metal-organic framework (MOF) chemistry is a multi-disciplinary field that connects organic and inorganic chemistry with materials science and nanotechnology. A key feature of MOFs is the self-assembly of organic molecules around metal ions or metal clusters. The composition of the MOFs is often dependent on the initial conditions in which the components are combined. More
