New insights challenge current understanding of how ion transport through some cell membranes works.
Using advanced MRI, a mechanical engineer tackles the question: "Why do you have these big fluid spaces in your head?"
Using high-field MRI, researchers are working to improve recovery in stroke victims.
Florida scientists are helping coral protect itself against nitrogen overload.
In the hands of Peter Gor'kov, scientific tools become works of fine art.
Precise determination of hemoglobin sequence and subunit quantitation from human blood for diagnosis of hemoglobin-based diseases.
Hannah Shafaat talks about the clever tricks that some strains of tuberculosis may be trying to pull off to resist drugs.
Three variants of the coral species A cervicornis were found to have unique metabolic signatures that can be distinguished by NMR spectroscopy. Differing levels of the metabolite trimethylamine-N-oxide, an important compound that protects against nitrogen overload, can distinguish the three variants studied. Understanding how species vary metabolically, and how that translates to species survival in stressed environments, may help us to establish desirable traits that could help with restoration and other interventions.
With advanced techniques and world-record magnetic fields, researchers have detected new MRI signals from brain tumors.
Scientists will be able to apply the technique to characterize similar molecules, helping develop vaccines and drugs to treat bacterial infection.
