Detecting cold, feeling pain: Study reveals why menthol feels fresh

...opiate receptors act, he says. The finding is a milestone in an investigation the team began several years ago. In 2002, the researchers discovered that the receptor was activated by chemical cooling agents such as menthol, a natural product of mint, and cool air. They reported their discovery, or "cloning,...

Magnetic computer sensors may help study biomolecules

... this electronically, which would be a significant milestone for applications. Parallel processing of single biomolecules would be a significant advance over existing techniques limited to studying one molecule at a time. Optical tweezers, which use lasers to trap and manipulate biomolecules, tend to be sl...

Plant-derived vaccines safeguard against deadly plague

...in guinea pigs. The results are considered to be a milestone in the future development of a new vaccine for human use. Plague, caused by a rod-shaped bacterium called Yersinia pestis, no longer invokes the "black death" feared throughout history, having been widely tamed since the advent of antibiotics. But ...

Cracking the genetic code for control of gene expression

... are published in Cell, in January 2006. A genome milestone was reached in 2001 when sequencing of the human genome was completed. This has been followed by complete chemical read-outs of DNA sequence for several species, for example mouse, dog, cow and chicken, in the recent years. But without a code or 'gra...

World first research to speed up cure for ear infections

...esearch into the wound healing process was a major milestone towards LEHI's major tissue engineering project of growing a replacement human ear drum.
