|NMR-based Metabolomics of Coral with Resistance to Bleaching||
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.
|Scientists identify potential biomarker for brain diseases||
With advanced techniques and world-record magnetic fields, researchers have detected new MRI signals from brain tumors.
|Researchers demonstrate method for analyzing molecules from bacteria cell walls||
Scientists will be able to apply the technique to characterize similar molecules, helping develop vaccines and drugs to treat bacterial infection.
|Scientists observe molecular movements in T cells||
Insights into the structure and movement of T cell surface proteins could lead to new ways to fight cancers, infections and other diseases.
|Uncovering the secrets of fungal cell walls||
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.
|Making a non-heme oxoiron(IV) complex a better oxidant||
This work investigates a series of oxoiron complexes that serve as models towards understanding the mechanism of catalysis for certain iron-containing enzymes.
|Ancient porphyrins indicate far earlier date for photosynthesis||
Molecular fossils of chlorophyll (called porphyrins) more than 1.1 billion years old find suggest that photosynthesis began 600 million years earlier than previously established.
|Imaging pH levels with a Cobalt MRI Probe||
A new pH sensitive contrast agent for MR imaging has been developed that produces image contrast based on the local pH and that has great potential for use in living animals and medical diagnostics.
|Metabolic assessment of migraines using ultra-high magnetic fields||
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."
|Imaging current flow in the brain during transcranial electrical stimulation||
Scientists measured the first in vivo images of stimulated current within the brain using an imaging method that may improve reproducibility and safety, and help understand the mechanisms of action of electrical stimulation.
