Protein enables discovery of quantum effect in photosynthesis
...) time-scale showed these oscillations meeting and interfering
constructively, forming wavelike motions of energy (superposition states) that can explore all potential energy pathways simultaneously and reversibly, meaning they can retreat from wrong pathways with no penalty. This finding contradicts the classic...
Blood-brain barrier breached by new therapeutic strategy
...erve cells of the brain, the strip, called a small interfering
RNA (siRNA), was shown to protect mice from infection caused by the Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV). Manjunath N. Swamy, M.D., of the CBR Institute for Biomedical Research and Harvard Medical School in Boston, and his colleagues used JEV to infec...
Exploring the dark matter of the genome
...hopped up. Other researchers have shown that small interfering
RNAs are made in the heterochromatin, which seek out transposons and inactivate them. That's the kind of knowledge that comes from sequencing heterochromatin." Smith uses the metaphor of dark matter to suggest the significance of heterochromatin....
Scratch no more: Gene for itch sensation discovered
...me people, chronic itching can be very disruptive, interfering
with sleep or giving rise to scratching that leads to scarring. Effective treatment options for itchy patients are limited. Historically, scientists regarded itch as just a less intense version of the pain sensation. As a result, research on itching...
