Technique monitors thousands of molecules simultaneously

...s. Working with his students, Moeller started by running a well-known electrochemical Wacker oxidation reaction, which converts an olefin into a ketone using palladium(II) on selected electrodes on the chip. In order to do this, the palladium(II) reagent needed at a selected electrode was actually made at ...

Master regulatory gene of epithelial stem cells identified

...fferentiation," says McKeon. "The defect is simply running out of stem cells. When you run out of stem cells, you run out of those tissues as we have seen with the mice lacking the p63 gene." Having established that p63 was only important to the maintenance of stem cells, McKeon and his research team then...

Newborn neurons like to hang with the 'in' crowd

Fat screen delivers plant-derived chemical with antidiabetic effects

...ld be candidates for novel insulin sensitizers. By running a technologically advanced screen of more than 500 bioactive compounds, the researchers found that harmine has such a positive effect on fat. The fat cells under examination were manipulated such that they literally lit up when fat-boosting PPARã bec...

Racing neurons control whether we stop or go

...een light," winners are able to stop, and take off running again, more quickly than their comrades. New research reveals that a similar race goes on in our brains, with impulse control being the big winner. "The research provides new insights into how the brain controls movements, which helps explain the im...

HIV protein enlisted to help kill cancer cells

...grow very fast. So they are always on the verge of running out of natural ingredients like sugars, and mistakes are accumulating in their DNA," Hawkins says. "This results in signals telling cancer cells to die, but the cells don't quite have the permission they need to do it. Proteins like TAT-Bim can tip t...

The origin of the brain lies in a worm

...rtebrates have a CNS in the shape of a spinal cord running along their backs, insects and annelid worms like the earthworm have a rope-ladder-like chain of nerve cell clusters on their belly side. Other invertebrates on the other hand have their nerve cells distributed diffusely over their body. Yet, all the...
