Imaging Lymph Nodes with Nanoparticles

...cles contain a centralsuperparamagnetic iron oxide core and are covered by dextran, impartinglong circulation times and biocompatibility. When injectedintravenously, the nanoparticles localize to lymphoid tissue, and areinternalized into macrophages. There is then a decrease in signalintensity on T2- and ...

An HIV Protein Plays a Surprising Role in Gene Activation

...iption factors were “virtually undetectable?at the core promoter in the absence of Tat. Adding Tat recruited all the usual transcription factors to the promoter and increased transcription. But none of the TAFs that normally associate with TFIID were found. When the authors used the activator Gal4-VP16 to...

Study shows nanoshells ideal as chemical nanosensors

... of a virus. They are ball-shaped and consist of a core ofnon-conducting glass that is covered by a metallic shell, typicallyeither gold or silver. The metal shell "captures" passing light andfocuses it, a property that directly leads to the enormous Ramanenhancements observed. Furthermore, nanoshells can...

Ice core 'dipstick' indicates West Antarctic ice has thinned less than believed

Wisconsin researchers identify sleep gene

Zeroing in on the core cellular mechanisms of sleep, researchers at University of Wisconsin Medical School have identified for the first time a single gene mutation that has a powerful effect on the amount of time fruit flies sleep. In its normal state, the Drosophila (fr...
