Breakthrough method in nanoparticle synthesis paves the way for new pharmaceutical and biomedical applications

...t are tailored simultaneously with nanometer-scale particle size and nanometer-sized pores. This is a beautiful example of ‘bottom-up?nanotechnology made possible by supramolecular chemistry,?said Prof. Ying. Previous attempts at synthesizing such nanoparticles created particles that were limited in the type...

UCLA launches $20 million stem cell institute to investigate HIV, cancer and neurological disorders

Basis for DNA ejection from single phage particles

...e release of pressure accumulated within the viral particle itself. Almost all phages (also known as bacteriophages) are formed of a capsid structure, or head, in which the viral genome is packaged during morphogenesis, and a tail structure that ensures the attachment of the phage to the host bacteria. A com...

Breakthrough: Scientists create world's tiniest organic particles

...il now, DeSimone said, most current techniques for particle formation were incompatible with organic materials. That was because they involved baking, etching or processing robust metals and such with solvents that would have destroyed far more fragile organic matter such as genes or drugs. The new method av...

Secrets to antibody's success against West Nile Virus surprise scientists

...the viral envelope. The envelope of a single viral particle or virion is comprised of 180 copies of this protein. For the new study, scientists determined the detailed structure of a single antibody bound to its envelope protein target region using the technique of protein crystallography. Scientists were ...
