“Nano-scissors?laser shows precise surgical capability

...erstudies that require nanosurgery, so it’s a very versatile tool.?The beauty of this laser, she says, is its ability to cut organelles(parts of cells—they are what organs are to organisms) precisely,without damaging surrounding tissue. Usually, conventional lasers usedin surgery heat the area to be cut, then ...

Highly adaptable genome in gut bacterium key to intestinal health

...nse. "B. theta is an incredibly sophisticated and versatile diner," says Justin Sonnenburg, Ph.D., W.M. Keck Foundation postdoctoral research scholar in the Center for Genome Sciences. "Instead of dying off when its usual source of food is gone, B. theta has evolved an elaborate mechanism for sensing changes ...

New methods of gene delivery using lasers

...ied the technique by using an extremely simple and versatile miniature violet laser which is compatible with standard microscopes. The method is very powerful, and in contrast to other methods the team can select individual cells to be treated at will under the microscope. The new technique involves the viole...

Multi-purpose protein regulates new protein synthesis and immune cell development

Scientists journey to southern Africa to unravel the secret world of elephant communication

...ow-frequency vibrations. The trunk may be the most versatile appendage in nature. Its many uses include drinking, bathing, smelling, feeding and scratching. It turns out that the tip of the trunk contains two kinds pressure-sensitive nerve endings--Meissner's corpuscles that detect infrasonic vibrations, and P...

Could microbes solve Russia's chemical weapons conundrum?

One of nature's most versatile microorganisms ?a bacterium called Pseudomonas putida ?could help mop up the toxic by-products caused by the destruction of the chemical weapon mustard, write Russian researchers in Journal of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology (http://www.intersc...

Innovative coating could give medical implants a longer life

...archers at Northwestern University have designed a versatile new two-sided coating that could breathe life into medical implants. Currently the longevity of certain medical implants suffers because bacteria, cells and proteins in the body gradually accumulate on the devices (known as fouling), compromising th...

Researchers grow stem cells from human skin

...ve that stem cells from human embryos are the most versatile type of stem cell because they have the potential to form any cell or tissue in the body. But they are also exploring the potential of stem cells from adults. In addition to skin, the cells have been identified in bone marrow, the brain and blood fro...

Breakthrough: Scientists create world's tiniest organic particles

Researchers Create DNA-Based Sensors for Nano-Tongues and Nano-Noses

..."Put the two together and they become an extremely versatile type of sensor, capable of finding tiny amounts of a specific molecule." Given the size of such sensors each carbon nanotube is about a billionth of a meter wide, Johnson and his colleagues believe arrays of these sensors could serve as passive dete...

New technique could alter field of mouse genetics

...result, scientists have been searching for stable, versatile transposons that can insert randomly in many different mammalian chromosomes and also carry genes into mice and other organisms that are more closely related to people. PiggyBac was originally identified in the cabbage looper moth. Unlike many mobil...

Stem cells' electric abilities might help their safe clinical use

...hannels act like electrical wires and permit ESCs, versatile cells that possess the unique ability to become all cell types of the body, to conduct and pass along electric currents. If researchers could selectively block some of these channels in implanted cells, derived from stem cells, they may be able to p...

Breath of the dragon: ERS-2 and Envisat reveal impact of economic growth on China's air quality

...e equator and more often at high latitudes. This versatile instrument represents a national contribution to ESA's Envisat mission. It was funded by the German government through the German Aerospace Center (DLR), the Dutch government through the Netherlands Agency for Aerospace Programmes (NIVR) and also the...

Researchers offer proof-of-concept for Altered Nuclear Transfer

...rom this procedure proved to be just as robust and versatile as stem cells procured in the more traditional fashion. "The success of this procedure in no way precludes the need to pursue all forms of human embryonic stem cell research," says Jaenisch, who is also a professor of biology at MIT. "Human embryon...

Do the Europeans turn ill sitting up so late?

The main objective of the training is that the trainees acquire a wide international knowledge as well in basic research as in experimental and clinical research, and also in epidemiology and sociology. Simultaneously the trainees learn...

Swiss researchers develop all-in-one remote control gene expression tool

... express the protein encoded by the new gene. This versatile package can also carry bits of RNA that stop the cell from expressing one of its own genes, by way of RNA interference. But the cargo that makes this tool really novel and exciting is a fusion protein that acts as a kind of remote control. By adminis...
