Homogeneous hydrogenolysis with molecular palladium

Tritium 3H, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen, is commonly used in medicinal chemistry as a label to follow the course of a drug in the human body. Chemists like to use the technique to evaluate drug candidates and their ...

Team achieves breakthrough using CRISPR-Cas9 to target fat cells

Fat—it is tvital for life but too much can lead to a host of health problems. Studying how fat—or adipose—tissue functions in the body is critical for understanding obesity and other issues, yet structural differences ...

Simulating matter on the nanoscale with AI

In a paper published today in the scientific journal Science, DeepMind demonstrates how neural networks can be used to describe electron interactions in chemical systems more accurately than existing methods.

Using state-of-the-art technology and techniques, EMBL's Müller group has provided the most detailed structure to date of human RNA polymerase I (Pol I), offering fundamental information about cellular function for those ...

Astronomers detect a black hole in NGC 1850

An international team of astronomers reports the detection of a black hole in a globular cluster known as NGC 1850. The newly found black hole is about 11 times more massive than the sun and turns out to be a part of a binary ...

It's official: Science says grannies are good for you

Scientists say they have proven what many people fortunate enough to grow up with theirs have known all along: Grandmothers have strong nurturing instincts and are hard-wired to care deeply about their grandchildren.

Understanding how pathogenic fungi build their carbohydrate armor
