Designer enzyme protection

Designer enzymes will have applications for defence against biological warfare, by deactivating pathogenic biological agents.

Brain imaging study

Researchers have conducted the first-ever brain imaging study that directly contrasts two different techniques for emotion regulation.

Buckyballs squeeze hydrogen

Material scientists have discovered that buckyballs are so strong they can hold volumes of hydrogen nearly as dense as those at the centre of Jupiter.

Fighting cervical cancer

The virus responsible for most cases of cervical cancer has a serious weakness which may provide hope for new treatments for the disease.

Multiple sclerosis symptoms

A bodysuit that heats or cools a patient, combined with painless measurements of eye movements, helps to study the link between body temperature and MS symptoms.

Microbial evolution

A mathematical approach for analysing a protein simultaneously in a set of ecologically distinct species to identify occurrences of natural selection has been developed.

Watching bleomycin

Researchers have created the first three-dimensional image of how a well-established chemotherapy agent targets and binds to DNA.

Scans spot hidden tumours

Full-body PET/CT scanning can detect unsuspected, treatable tumours in 3 of 15 patients with Li-Fraumeni syndrome, a rare genetic cancer disease.

Advantages of metafilms

Thin films made of meta-materials - man-made composites engineered to offer strange combinations of electromagnetic properties - can reduce microwaves.

Conventional to molecular

Researchers have set the stage for building the evolutionary link between the microelectronics of today and future generations of organic...

Loopy photons

Researchers have developed a new method for creating pairs of entangled photons and used them to test fundamental concepts in quantum theory.

Norwalk virus' weakness

An international team has determined the detailed structure of the enzyme the Norwalk virus uses to make copies of its genetic code in order to replicate itself.

Cortisol in fibromyalgia fight

Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia are two serious and debilitating diseases with no confirmed cause and limited treatment options.

Cellular transport insight

Scientists have now discovered how molecular motors transport cargoes in cells. Two competing teams of motors pull in opposite directions, like in a tug-of-war contest.

MALDI LTQ XL mass spectrometer

The addition of MALDI to the LTQ XL linear ion trap provides information-rich spectra that are essential for the analysis of digested proteins and PTMs.

epMotion 5070 CB automated liquid handling system

Designed to fit inside a laminar flow hood, the epMotion 5070 CB automated liquid handling system from Eppendorf AG offers important advantages for cell biologists.

Corona CAD universal detector

The new Corona CAD universal detector is a simple and reliable HPLC method for simultaneous measurement of cations and anions.

H pylori adhesion

The Gram negative bacterium H pylori is involved in the pathogenesis of several gastrointestinal diseases, ultimately leading to gastric carcinoma.

Stress and the brain

Individuals who experience military combat obviously endure extreme stress, and this exposure leaves many diagnosed with PTSD.

Negative emotions and the brain

Reappraisal reduced negative emotion experience and suppression reduced disgust facial expressions, they markedly differed in their impact on brain activity.
