Duke University biomedical engineers have harvested genes for ion channels from bacteria that, with a few tweaks, can create and enhance electrical signaling in human cells, making the cells more electrically excitable.
University of Queensland researchers have taken a big step toward understanding the movement of molecules in the human body.
An atomic level analysis has revealed how two classes of calcium channel blockers, widely prescribed for heart disease patients, produce separate therapeutic effects through their actions at different sites on the calcium ...
An international group of researchers has pinpointed the sensor plants use to sense electric fields. A beneficial side effect: Their work could contribute to the understanding of how the Ebola virus enters human cells.
Researchers from the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI are developing an emotion-based artificial intelligence.
Employees at the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IBCh RAS) have created Kalium, a database for peptide toxins from scorpion venom. It enables scientists to systematize information on ...
