UAB scientists discover the origin of a mysterious physical force

...hat create small electric fields, such as chemical compounds like those found in many detergents, this is no longer the case: the water molecules have a remarkable capacity to organise themselves into complex structures that are strongly orientated in such a way as to cancel out the electric field, and on some...

W.M. Keck Foundation funds study of friendly microbes

...oal is to characterize previously unknown chemical compounds that play important roles in regulating the properties of the microbial community and human physiology. To do so, the researchers will use a new type of mass spectrometer with an unprecedented capacity to accurately and rapidly identify these metabol...

Inflammatory molecules released by pollen trigger allergies

...pollutants produce more of these allergy-provoking compounds than do pollen from unpolluted areas, possibly explaining why allergies are more prevalent in places with high levels of car exhaust emissions. Traidl-Hoffmann and colleagues showed that extracts from birch pollen and other common allergens block th...

...expected to make the development of new antibiotic compounds easier and more productive. But in most cases the microbes continue to hold the upper hand ?and if three billion years of bacterial history is any kind of track record, we're in for an endless running battle, says Dr. Julian Davies, a microbiologist ...

Spider Venom Could Yield Eco-Friendly Insecticides

...sent an untapped reservoir of diverse insecticidal compounds that could do more than control agricultural pests. As researchers inventory more kinds of venom and uncover insecticide leads, they may be able to target insects that transmit new and emerging human diseases, such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain ...

Poplar trees redirect resources in response to simulated attack

Deficiency of growth hormone and IGF-1 reduces cancer and kidney disease, but creates other problems

Deficiencies of growth hormone and similar compounds may reduce cancer and kidney disease late in life, but also may lead to cartilage degeneration and impaired memory and learning ability, according to research at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and four other institutions. The research...
