Electron-delivering protein manipulates natural catalyst, changing ideas about fertilizer production
Results: In industry, synthesizing ammonia for fertilizers uses massive amounts of hydrogen, typically generated from fossil fuels, but in nature, the nitrogenase enzyme produces ammonia without added hydrogen. In studying ...
Plant cell structure discovery could lead to improved renewable materials
The step forward follows research by the Universities of Warwick and Cambridge and the unexpected discovery of a previously unknown arrangement of molecules in plant cell walls.
New research discovers 4-stranded DNA-binding protein conserved in plants and animals
When it comes to plants and animals, sometimes the two are more alike than you'd think.
New insight into a fragile protein linked to cancer and autism
In recent years, scientists have found a surprising a connection between some people with autism and certain cancer patients: They have mutations in the same gene, one that codes for a protein critical for normal cellular ...
Breakthrough understanding of biomolecules could lead to new and better drugs
(Phys.org) —There's a certain type of biomolecule built like a nano-Christmas tree. Called a glycoconjugate, it's many branches are bedecked with sugary ornaments.
Scientists discover channel used by catalyst to produce ammonia, vital for food and fuel crops
(Phys.org) —Mother Nature's helper in turning nitrogen from the air into ammonia is an enzyme called nitrogenase that uses molybdenum and iron; scientists want to learn natural catalyst's secrets and apply them to synthetic ...
Research may unlock enzyme's role in disease
A UT Arlington chemist doing National Science Foundation-funded research on enzymes that regulate human biology has uncovered characteristics that could be used to identify predisposition to conditions such as heart disease, ...
New study sheds light on molecular machinery of nervous system
A University of Arkansas research team shed new light on the molecular properties that drive the nervous system. Their work was recently published in Biochemistry, one of the top journals in the field. Kelsey Sparks, an alumna ...
Discovery of the missing link in evolution of bioluminescence
With bioluminescence—the process that makes fireflies glow—now a mainstay in medical research, scientists are reporting discovery of a "missing link" of its evolution, which represents one of the deepest mysteries about ...
Researchers discover key link in a deadly staph bacteria
(Phys.org)—A new study from Stanford's Department of Chemistry reveals that the cell wall structure of Staphylococcus aureus, a bacterium responsible for a broad range of diseases, depends on growth stage and nutrient availability.
