Chemists create 'Superbowl' molecule; May lead to better health

...and out. This is ideal if you're trying to capture certain molecules and hold them until they're ready for release, the researcher says. Superbowl molecules are similar in function to buckyballs, the experimental soccer-ball shaped molecules also known as fullerenes (C60), which also show promise for drug d...

Scientists ID molecular 'switch' in liver that triggers harmful effects of saturated and trans fats

...ides and increases one's risk of heart disease and certain cancers. In the Jan. 28 issue of Cell, scientists led by Bruce Spiegelman, PhD, report that the harmful effects of saturated and trans fats are set in motion by a biochemical switch, or co-activator, in liver cells called PGC-1beta. Until now, scie...

UAB scientists discover the origin of a mysterious physical force
