Acute itching in eczema patients linked to environmental allergens

Newly identified pathway explains why antihistamine drugs often don’t work to control severe itch. In addition to a skin rash, many eczema sufferers also experience chronic itching, but sometimes that…

Simulating evolution to understand a hidden switch

Computer simulations of cells evolving over tens of thousands of generations reveal why some organisms retain a disused switch mechanism that turns on under severe stress, changing some of their…

How cells move and don’t get stuck

Cell velocity, or how fast a cell moves, is known to depend on how sticky the surface is beneath it, but the precise mechanisms of this relationship have remained elusive…

NIH scientists identify nutrient that helps prevent bacterial infection

Taurine, which helps the body digest fats and oils, could offer treatment benefit Scientists studying the body’s natural defenses against bacterial infection have identified a nutrient–taurine–that helps the gut recall…

Synthesis of potent antibiotic follows unusual chemical pathway

Images of a protein involved in creating a potent antibiotic reveal the unusual first steps of the antibiotic’s synthesis. The improved understanding of the chemistry behind this process, detailed in…

5G sensor technology for collision control protects machine tools and components

Complex production processes in highly flexible and networked manufacturing systems require all processes and distributed systems to be able to exchange their data extremely reliably and with only short delay…

Blood group co-determines composition of the intestinal microbiome

In a large genome study, a Kiel University research team demonstrates correlations between certain gene variants and the composition of bacterial colonization in the human body For several years, scientists…

Novel Organoid Models: Illuminating Path to Cervical Cancers

How do tumours develop in the cervix? Many new details are now known about this question. This is also thanks to Dr. Cindrilla Chumduri from the Biocentre at the University…

Record-breaking lungfish genome reveals how vertebrates conquered land

380 million years ago, fish started to crawl out of the water to colonise land. The Australian lungfish – an endangered, air-breathing fish – is one of the few living…
