With unprecedented sensitivity and resolution from state-of-the-art magnets, scientists have identified for the first time the cell wall structure of one of the most prevalent and deadly fungi.
If engineers build stronger magnets, scientists promise they will come … and that discoveries will follow.
Water samples collected from the heart of Africa contain clues about carbon cycling worldwide.
A technique called dynamic nuclear polarization is hitting its stride, using electrons to shine a light on complex molecules.
This work investigates a series of oxoiron complexes that serve as models towards understanding the mechanism of catalysis for certain iron-containing enzymes.
Protein oxidative damage is a common occurrence in a number of diseases, including cancer, neurodegenerative, and cardiovascular disease. Yet, little is known about its contribution to these illnesses. We developed a new technique, utilizing an infrared laser in combination with a mass spectrometer, to selectively identify sites of oxidation in complex protein mixtures. This sensitive and rapid platform may outperform current techniques and thus shed light on the involvement of oxidative damage in each of these diseases.
This high-field EPR study of the H-Mn2+ content in the bacterium Deinococcus Radiodurans provides the strongest known biological indicator of cellular ionizing radiation resistance between and within the three domains of the tree of life, with potential applications including optimization of radiotherapy.
Dylan Murray wants to sabotage processes that can lead to neurodegenerative disease.
High-field data comes in a boggling array of shapes, squiggles and colors. Play along as we try to figure out what it all means.
From nanorockets to nanocages, good science can come in tiny packages — all with the aim of solving really big problems.
