Nanoimaging the intracellular space to aid drug development

Chemotherapeutics are key players in the clinical setting to fight most types of cancer, and novel chemicals could facilitate new and unique intracellular interactions that modulate the cell machinery and destroy the tumor ...

Chemists create new artificial enzyme

Enzymes are nature's powerhouses. Found in the cells of all animals, plants, and every other living organism, they accelerate the chemical reactions that trigger thousands of biological functions—from forming neurons to ...

New test measures corn nitrogen needs with greater accuracy

The soil fertility tests farmers have used for decades to measure nitrogen levels don't account for the vast majority of the nitrogen in soils, so Iowa State University scientists helped develop a new test that yields more ...

Transparent human organs allow 3-D maps at the cellular level

For the first time, researchers have managed to make intact human organs transparent. Using microscopic imaging, they revealed complex underlying structures of the transparent organs at the cellular level. The resulting organ ...

New synthesis methods enhance 3-D chemical space for drug discovery

After helping develop a new approach for organic synthesis—carbon-hydrogen functionalization—scientists at Emory University are now showing how this approach may apply to drug discovery. Nature Catalysis published their ...
