First steps towards new therapy for diseases caused by defective anion transport
Research by a team at the University of Bristol has taken the first steps towards new treatments for inherited diseases such as cystic fibrosis; one form of Bartter's syndrome (severe salt loss from the kidney); and two forms ...
Blood test for cancer biomarkers using an electrochemical clamp assay
Researchers provide evidence for a non-enzymatic pathway to produce paracaseolide A
Study of PEGylated model protein reveals porous structure based on PEG size
Toward solid-state molecular circuitry: Molecular shuttle within a metal-organic framework
Self-assembling material that grows and changes shape could lead to artificial arteries
Researchers at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) have developed a way of assembling organic molecules into complex tubular tissue-like structures without the use of moulds or techniques like 3D printing.
Catalyst combining reactivity and selectivity could speed drug development
Chemists have long believed that inserting nitrogen—a beneficial ingredient for making many pharmaceuticals and other biologically active molecules—into a carbon-hydrogen bond requires a trade-off between catalyst reactivity ...
Spintronics just got faster
In a tremendous boost for spintronic technologies, EPFL scientists have shown that electrons can jump through spins much faster than previously thought.
New synthesis method imitates the way molecules were formed at the dawn of life on Earth
Researchers from the Institute for Advanced Chemistry of Catalonia (IQAC-CSIC), with support from the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Service of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) have developed a method for synthesising ...
New technique offers a window into light-activated therapies
Researchers have observed how a light-activated compound alters the structure of DNA - which could be the first step in creating new, targeted cancer treatments.
