Carnegie Mellon scientists find key HIV protein makes cell membranes bend more easily

... change in the shape of gp41, which in turn drives uptake of HIV RNA and proteins by the T cell. But the Carnegie Mellon work suggests that FP-23 plays another, equally important function — reducing the free energy of curved fusion intermediates. These fleeting shapes arise and disappear as HIV enters a T c...

Biodiesel won't drive down global warming

EU legislation to promote the uptake of biodiesel will not make any difference to global warming, and could potentially result in greater emissions of greenhouse gases than from conventional petroleum derived diesel. This is the conclusion of a new study reported today in Chemistry &...

'Terror bird' arrived in North America before land bridge, study finds

..." MacFadden said. "This is the first time that the uptake of rare earth elements during the early stage of fossilization has been used to determine the age of fossils in North America." Geologists have used the technique to study igneous and metamorphic rocks, but only one other researcher worldwide has ...

Cells selectively absorb short nanotubes

The biggest bug in gut discomfort

... bug had evolved a special mechanism to induce its uptake into these nonphagocytic cells and establish its own intracellular niche. Watson and Galan set out to follow C. jejuni down the host cell’s endocytic pathway. Much of the cell’s incoming traffic is usually routed to compartments called lysosomes, whe...

Bitter taste identifies poisons in foods
