Hybrid molecule causes cancer cells to self-destruct

...gned to avoid toxic side effects, researchers used innocuous sugar molecules such as glucose to carry butyrate into the cells. The Johns Hopkins team tried a different tack. "We didn't think they chose the right partner molecule," said Kevin J. Yarema, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering who super...

A new target for painkillers

...pathic pain often are hypersensitive to previously innocuous stimuli ?for example, feeling pain from a foot rubbing against the inside of a shoe ?and feel an exaggerated response to things that are painful. Common pain medicines like aspirin, ibuprofen and acetaminophen often fail to relieve neuropathic pai...

Mosquito spray increases toxicity of pyrethroids in creek, study finds

...in and PBO exposed to sunlight degrade easily into innocuous substances after a day or two," he said. However, based upon these study results, Weston said regulators should not only consider the toxicity of individual active ingredients in a product, but also how ingredients may interact with other chemicals...

Sea slug mixes chemical defense before firing at predators

...ple dye in the secretion. "Aplysia packages these innocuous precursors separately and then releases them simultaneously into its mantle cavity at the precise time when they are needed," explained Derby. "This mechanism insures the secretion's potency against attacking predators to enable sea slugs to escape."...

Scientists develop fungus-fighting vaccine

... to the vaccine, the group attached the relatively innocuous beta-glucan to a protein called diptheria toxin that is known to stimulate the immune system and has been used in other human vaccines. The vaccine protected rodents from fatal fungal infections by triggering the production of anti-beta-glucan antib...

Venom doc tracks down snake bioweapons

...various prey-immobilizing toxins have evolved from innocuous proteins that were normally produced in other body tissues. Scientists believe that snakes, rather than simply tweaking proteins already expressed in their saliva, recruited and altered proteins for their chemical arsenal from other body tissues. Th...

Symbiotic bacteria protect hunting wasps from fungal infestation

...ungi is to establish a symbiotic relationship with innocuous antibiotic-producing bacteria that provide protection against the most dangerous pathogens. As yet, only a few cases of defensive symbioses between higher organisms and bacteria have been reported. In their new paper, Martin Kaltenpoth and his colle...

Could microbes solve Russia's chemical weapons conundrum?
