Chemists create 'Superbowl' molecule; May lead to better health

... these bowl-shaped molecules have been extensively studied and refined by chemists for their wide range of potential uses, including drug delivery, chemical synthesis and as models for cell and viral behavior. Until now, these molecules have had a very limited carrying capacity. "The compounds we made are b...

Association of herpesvirus with lung disorder questioned

...were Japanese. For a control group, the scientists studied Kaposi's sarcoma tissue samples obtained from unrelated patients. Like the authors of the earlier study, Katano and colleagues performed two types of tests in the tissue samples, one to detect an antigen associated with HHV-8, the other to detect HH...

Jump-starting T Cells In Skin Cancer

...ne-specific killer T cells. Pierre Coulie's group studied anti-tumor T cells in patients vaccinated with a tumor antigen called MAGE-3. In one patient whose tumor regressed after vaccination, the authors found significantly more T cells specific for non-vaccine tumor proteins than were detected before vacci...

UCSB scientists probe sea floor venting to gain understanding of early life on Earth

...F. For this study, Haymon and her UCSB colleagues studied the "flanks" of the mid-ocean ridge, which –?at 40,000 miles long–?is the largest geological feature of Earth, and possibly the solar system. At the mid-ocean ridge the plates comprising the Earth's lithosphere move apart, lava wells up and freezes t...

UAB scientists discover the origin of a mysterious physical force

...tment of Chemistry at Imperial College London have studied this mysterious force in detail and have discovered where its origins lie. In the same way that a flag flutters in the direction the wind is blowing, at a microscopic level water molecules are gently attracted towards the direction in which an elect...

Enzyme, lost in most mammals, is shown to protect against UV-induced skin cancer

...he new work, Dr. Bert van der Horst and colleagues studied theeffects of CPD and 6-4PP lesions by providing mice with transgenesencoding CPD and 6-4PP photolyase enzymes.Although mice do not ordinarily produce these enzymes, which removeeither CPD or 6-4PP lesions by using visible light as an energy source,e...

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...ming together in multi-cellular aggregations. They studied the sinking rate, the slow process through which aggregations of diatoms sink into the deep sea, taking their carbon with them. The Kilo Moana returned to Hawaii after spending 42 days at sea. Early results suggest that the struggle for iron may ind...

Lack of enzyme turns fat cells into fat burners

...ty, and related problems."Wakil and his colleagues studied the oxidation of fatty acid andglucose in cultures of fat cells isolated from both normal and mutantmice that lacked ACC2. When the mice were fed a normal diet, fatty acidoxidation was 80 percent higher in the fat cells of the mice lackingACC2 when c...

Controversial drug shown to act on brain protein to cut alcohol use

...as apotent anti-addiction drug has been rigorously studied for the firsttime, confirming its ability to block alcohol craving in rodents, andclarifying how it works in the brain. The new research findings aboutthe drug Ibogaine open the way for development of other drugs toreverse addiction without Ibogaine'...
