Hannah Shafaat talks about the clever tricks that some strains of tuberculosis may be trying to pull off to resist drugs.
Findings clarify the role of sodium increase early in migraines and point to the region where symptoms may start.
What happens when a kid with ADHD sustains a concussion? Using high-field magnets, researchers are working to find out.
A scientist is developing an MRI technique to detect kidney disease that lights up the organs' metabolism.
If engineers build stronger magnets, scientists promise they will come … and that discoveries will follow.
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.
The causes of migraines are not well understood, with treatment limited to addressing pain rather than its origin. Research conducted with hydrogen MRI is attempting to identify the "migraine generator."
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.
