Study shows new way for simple production of vicinal diamines

Among the most common structures relevant to the function of biologically active molecules, natural products and drugs are so-called vicinal diamines—in particular, unsymmetrically constructed diamines. Vicinal diamines ...

New biomarkers for coffee consumption

In search of new biomarkers for nutrition and health studies, a research team from the Leibniz Institute for Food Systems Biology at the Technical University of Munich (LSB) has identified and structurally characterized three ...

Could new cancer drugs come from potatoes and tomatoes?

Everyone knows someone who has had cancer. In 2020, around 19 million new cases—and around 10 million deaths—were registered worldwide. Treatments are improving all the time, but can damage healthy cells or have severe ...

Researchers compile ethnopharmacology of genus Veronicastrum

The genus Veronicastrum (Plantaginaceae) has about 20 species in the world with a distribution in eastern Asia and North America. Species in the genus Veronicastrum are beautiful perennial herbs with mostly alternate leaves, ...

Why synonymous mutations are not always silent

New modeling shows how synonymous mutations—those that change the DNA sequence of a gene but not the sequence of the encoded protein—can still impact protein production and function. A team of researchers led by Penn ...

Novel complex may help to modulate lipid metabolism

A research team led by Prof. Wang Guangce from the Institute of Oceanology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has discovered that the complex of phycobiliproteins, fucoxanthin, and krill oil (PFK) can modulate lipid metabolism ...
