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

... yet when this experimental molecule will actually enter the consumer market, but any useful application is likely to take five to ten years, the researcher estimates. Administration of the molecule for drug delivery could be by mouth or by injection, he adds. There are hurdles to overcome. The current ve...

DNA Molecules Used To Assemble Nanoparticles

...y targeted to cancer cells and are small enough to enter a diseased cell, either killing it from within or sending out a signal to identify it. But making the particles is notoriously difficult and time-consuming. The nanoparticle system used by Baker's lab is based on dendrimers, star-like synthetic poly...

UAB scientists discover the origin of a mysterious physical force

...tanding how substances penetrate cell membranes to enter cells. These drugs are often proteins designed to prevent or strengthen the action of other substances. In these cases, accurately identifying the protein folding is essential, since the form these proteins take on when they fold influences how effec...

Fox Chase Cancer Center scientists identify immune-system mutation

...w) generate antibodies against foreign agents that enter the body. Other T cells are known as killer cells because they attack foreign invaders more directly. "The maturation of T cells involves key branch points at which cells choose one of two different pathways, going on to become helper cells or kille...

In a new finding published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers at North Carolina State Universi...

Computers to be used to find blueprint for new influenza drug

... acid, from the throat cell, allowing the virus to enter the cell and reproduce. The new drug would be chemically similar to the sialic acid, but would act to inhibit the sialidase. This would hinder the virus from entering the cells, and from leaving them should they gain entry, thereby controlling the s...

The secret lives of whales

...w whales move away or go quiet as human activities enter an area. Every decade the amount of noise is doubling. “Whales have very traditional feeding grounds and their migratory routes along coastlines have become incredibly noisy, urbanized habitats,?Clark explains. “Acoustic smog is shrinking their world...

Taking Aim With Nanoparticle PEBBLEs

...ncer cells and disrupting their DNA, PEBBLEs never enter the cells they target. Instead, they attach to the outside of the targeted cell and shoot reactive oxygen species into it, setting off "an avalanche of damage," said Kopelman. By staying outside the cell, PEBBLEs avoid a problem that thwarts many che...

Open microfluidic and nanofluidic systems

...uid, one observes that the liquid often refuses to enter the channels. In fact, as shown in the new PNAS study, liquids at surface channels can attain a large variety of different wetting morphologies including localized droplets, extended filaments, and thin wedges at the lower channel corners. Examples f...

Agilent Technologies releases automated literature search tool for biology researchers

The plug-in searches accessible databases and generates a computational representation of gene/protein associations grouped into a netw...

Scientists discover that host cell lipids facilitate bacterial movement

... cells and are ingested by them. The bacteria then enter the new cell and begin the cycle anew. Essentially Listeria takes over or hijacks the host cell's actin cytoskeleton to move within cells, and to spread from cell to cell." In most cells, two membrane lipids, PIP2 and PIP3, are associated with the f...

Antibiotic might fight HIV-induced neurological problems
