Life Sciences and Chemistry

Articles and reports from the Life Sciences and chemistry area deal with applied and basic research into modern biology, chemistry and human medicine.

Valuable information can be found on a range of life sciences fields including bacteriology, biochemistry, bionics, bioinformatics, biophysics, biotechnology, genetics, geobotany, human biology, marine biology, microbiology, molecular biology, cellular biology, zoology, bioinorganic chemistry, microchemistry and environmental chemistry.

How proteins change shape inside cells

This new method from UNC School of Medicine researvchers Klaus Hahn and Tim Elston, has the potential to super-charge the study of human proteins as they interact and change their…

The human immune system is an early riser

Swiss and German scientists show that activation of the immune system oscillates throughout the day, with a peak just before the start of the day. Circadian clocks, which regulate most…

How to program DNA robots to poke and prod cell membranes

A discovery of how to build little blocks out of DNA and get them to stick to lipids has implications for biosensing and mRNA vaccines. Scientists have worked out how…

Skin stem cells get moving for enhanced skin regeneration

Researchers from Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) have found that the movement of skin stem cells can help your skin regenerate.  Although sometimes hard to accept, with aging, many…

Molecules in an egg carton

How water surfaces can be used to produce functional materials. The production of high-quality monolayers – i.e. only one molecule high – is highly relevant for optoelectronic components such as…

Cellular environments shape molecular architecture

Researchers glean a more complete picture of a structure called the nuclear pore complex by studying it directly inside cells. Context matters. It’s true for many facets of life, including…

How bacteria create a piggy bank for the lean times

Basic science discovery could lead to improved biomaterial production. Bacteria can store extra resources for the lean times. It’s a bit like keeping a piggy bank or carrying a backup…

Nuclei on the move for muscle self-repair

Muscle is known to regenerate through a complex process that involves several steps and depends on stem cells. Now, a new study led by researchers at the Instituto de Medicina…

Delta and Delta Plus evade the antibody response

Cell culture studies show increased lung cell entry of the SARS-CoV-2 variants Delta and Delta Plus and reduced inhibition by antibodies. The emergence of new SARS-CoV-2 variants that can spread…

A rapid mechanism for muscle self-repair independent of stem cells

A new study led by Spanish researchers describes a new mechanism for muscle repair after physiological damage relying on the rearrangement of muscle fibre nuclei, and independently of muscle stem…
