North & South American researchers find architectural abnormalities in T. cruzi ribosome
...edical CAT scan. First, the researchers freeze an ultrathin
layer of buffer with purified ribosomes so quickly that the water has no chance to crystallize and damage the ribosomes. Then, the frozen sample is imaged with an electron beam in the transmission electron microscope. A CAT scan takes readings of a ...
MIT researchers build tiny batteries with viruses
...en align themselves on the polymer surface to form ultrathin
wires. Each virus, and thus the wire, is only 6 nanometers (6 billionths of a meter) in diameter, and 880 nanometers in length. "We can make them in larger diameters," Belcher said, "but they are all 880 nanometers in length," which matches the leng...
