Agent slows aging in mice

...r did two other potential anti-aging agents. But a synthetic derivative of a pungent desert shrub is now a front- runner in ongoing animal experiments to find out if certain chemicals, known to inhibit inflammation, cancer and other destructive processes, can boost the odds of living longer. Today at the annu...

...t of the cell. However, if they were replaced with synthetic membrane anchors and clumping domains Gag regained its ability to get out of cells in exosomes. Gould speculates that cells may have initially developed exosomes as a quality control mechanism to get rid of clumped proteins, which are generally b...

DOE JGI sets 'gold standard' for metagenomic data analysis

...could identify the correct answer by comparing the synthetic datasets to the corresponding isolate genomes." "This paper provides an extremely useful survey of tools and existing approaches for metagenome analysis and points out their weaknesses," said Natalia Maltsev, of the Bioinformatics Group, Mathemati...

Natural antibiotics yield secrets to atom-level imaging technique

... providing clues for modifications that might make synthetic AMPs even more effective in overcoming ever-increasing bacterial resistance. For instance, rearranging parts of the molecule might make it fit into the membrane better, resulting in greater effectiveness with smaller amounts of AMP. "Our overall m...

Scientists genetically engineer tomatoes with enhanced folate content

...uch as rice, flour and cornmeal be enriched with a synthetic form of folate known as folic acid. Folate deficiencies remain a problem in many underdeveloped countries, however, where adding folic acid is impractical or simply too expensive. "There are even folate deficiency issues in Europe, where additi...

Fascinating spider silk

...ic level. No phase separation was observed for the synthetic spider protein when the pH was maintained at an alkaline level. At high pH, the normally uncharged tyrosine groups in the protein are deprotonated, which gives them a negative charge. This charge weakens the interactions between the hydrophobic, lipo...

Navigable nanotransport

Korean researchers led by Kimoon Kim have now developed a very simple novel approach for the direct production of polymeric nanocapsules. As described in the journal Angewandte Chemie, this method is generally applicable to...

Penn researchers show how nanocylinders deliver medicine better than nanospheres

... used skinny cylindrical nanoparticles composed of synthetic polymers to deliver the anticancer drug paclitaxel to a human lung tumor tissue implanted in mice. The cylinders have diameters as small as 20 nm and lengths approaching the size of blood cells. The paclitaxel shrunk the tumors and, because the cylin...

New compound prevents alcoholic behavior, relapse in animals by blocking stress response

...xcessive drinking and prevents relapse. The new, synthetic compound, known as MTIP, also muted the anxiety that typically develops in rats experiencing the equivalent of a hangover. Such stress is linked with higher levels of a brain chemical called corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF), which is also thought...

...e procedure, the researchers said. "By taking a synthetic material that already has the properties of cartilage and combining it with living cells, we can build a human tissue that can be integrated rapidly into the body, representing a new approach in the field of tissue engineering," Moutos said. "Once...

Natural gut hormone offers hope for new obesity drug

... and colleague Dr Caroline Small hope to develop a synthetic form of PP which can be administered to patients. "The trouble with PP is that it would need to be injected daily and cannot be taken as a pill," says Dr Small. "Naturally, this is not very convenient, so we need to develop an injectable form that ...
