ATP-binding cassette transporter expression

Scientists have discovered that drug-efflux pumps, belonging to the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter family, are constitutively expressed on vascular endothelial cells.

Sustainable fisheries cheated

Small scale fisheries are as productive and more efficient than their industrial counterparts, but are hurt by eco-labelling initiatives and fuel subsidies.

Memory trick shows brain organisation

A simple memory trick has helped show UC Davis researchers how an area of the brain called the perirhinal cortex can contribute to forming memories.

Armoured fish helps evolution understanding

Shedding some genetically induced excess baggage may have helped a tiny fish thrive in freshwater and outsize its marine ancestors, according to a UBC study.

Breaking harmful CFC bonds

Brandeis scientists report they have identified a catalyst that efficiently breaks the C-F bond and converts it to a carbon-hydrogen bond, rendering it harmless to the environment.

Face recognition a question of culture

Researchers have discovered that cultural differences cause us to look at faces differently. Scientist Live spoke with Roberto Caldara about his findings.

Treating endometrial cancer

Researchers announced a new approach to treating endometrial cancer patients that not only stops the growth of tumours, but kills the cancer cells.

Liver disease diagnosis without biopsy

Non-invasively measuring liver stiffness with transient elastography accurately diagnoses patients with late-stage liver disease.

Chronic insomnia linked to cognitive deficits

Cognitive processes related to verbal fluency are compromised in people with insomnia despite the absence of a behavioural deficit.

Sex hormones link to heart risk

Men are more prone to - and likely to die of - heart disease compared with women of a similar age - and sex hormones are to blame, according to a recent study.

Regulating appetite and reproduction

A master switch has been found in the brain of mice that controls body weight and fertility and believe it may work the same in humans.

New genes found for inflammatory bowel disease

Researchers have discovered two new genes that increase the risk of developing inflammatory bowel disease in childhood.

New cancer, ageing treatments

Researchers have deciphered the structure of the active region of telomerase, an enzyme that plays a major role in the development of nearly all human cancers.

Creating blood from stem cells

Johns Hopkins researchers have discovered the earliest form of human blood stem cells and deciphered the mechanism by which these embryonic stem cells replicate and grow.

DNA tubes with programmable sizes

Scientists at Caltech have developed a simple process for mass producing molecular tubes of identical - and precisely programmable - circumferences.

Cold tolerance in corn

If corn's intolerance of low temperatures could be overcome, then the length of the growing season, and yield, could be increased at present sites of cultivation.

vCJD transmitted by blood

A 9-year study in sheep has added to the evidence that vCJD can be transmitted through blood transfusion in humans.

Epitaxy facility of the PTB

In order to realise the electrical units of voltage, resistance and current with highest accuracy quantum effects in nano-circuits are nowadays used.

Rotary evaporation technology

Designed with advanced technology, Laborata rotary evaporators are very easy to use and highly reliable, enabling them to deliver the fastest, most economical results for your applications.

Versatile microcentrifuge technology

Eppendorf's new 30-place Centrifuge 5430 spins at up to 30,130 x g and accommodates virtually any tube or plate in eight different rotors, yet its footprint is highly compact.
