Messenger RNAs bearing the genetic information for the synthesis of proteins are delivered to defined sites in the cell cytoplasm by molecular motors. Researchers have elucidated how the motors recognize their mRNA freight.
Based on a study of the optical properties of novel ultrathin semiconductors, researchers have developed a method for rapid and efficient characterization of these materials.
European professional soccer has a growing fan base also in the USA. Among the most popular clubs in the USA are the two English clubs Manchester United and Chelsea FC as well as the two Spanish clubs FC Barcelona and Real Madrid.
A protein known as Arf1 plays a role in podosome formation by regulating the assembly of myosin-II within the cytoskeleton, a new study has revealed.
A focus on policies to conserve tropical forests for their carbon storage value may imperil some of the world’s most biologically rich tropical forests, says new research.
A new study offers a recipe for parents who want smarter kids: maternal micronutrient supplements during pregnancy, early life nurturing, happy moms, and educated parents.
The antiretroviral drugs used to treat HIV infection might inadvertently be boosting gay/bisexual men's susceptibility to the bacteria responsible for syphilis, Treponema pallidum, conclude researchers.
Smoking related imagery is conspicuous by its absence from only one Bond movie since 007 first graced cinema screens in 1962, finds a new analysis.
Acupuncture may be an effective treatment option for babies with infantile colic -- those who cry for more than three hours a day on three or more days of the week, new research suggests.
Does conference size impact conference rankings in NCAA men's basketball? According to research and analysis, it does.
New findings uncover an ancient mechanism that makes cancer cells invasive, explains melanoma’s resistance to therapy and opens the door to development of novel cancer therapies
Thanks to a new discovery, scientists have pioneered a new class of materials with advanced functionalities that moves the idea of flexible ferroelectrics from the realm of oxymoron into reality.
A team astrophysicists has observed the unexplained fading of an interacting binary star, one of the first discoveries using the Sarah L. Krizmanich Telescope.
New research has focused on an aspect of the ACA/health care debate that hasn’t really been discussed—the social impact on communities. The author of a new report was able to control for income level and other factors and still finds issues with trust, support and other issues in communities where members are uninsured.
A new approach has been uncovered to detail the formation of material defects at the atomic scale and in near-real time, an important step that could assist in engineering better and stronger new materials.
It’s the big astrophysical whodunnit. Across the Universe, galaxies are being killed and the question scientists want answered is, what’s killing them?
Of patients over age 65 who received an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) after surviving sudden cardiac arrest or a near-fatal arrhythmia, almost 80 percent survived two years—a higher rate than found in past trials performed to demonstrate the efficacy of the devices in this situation, according to a study.
A synthesized steroid mirroring one naturally made by the dogfish shark prevents the buildup of a lethal protein implicated in some neurodegenerative diseases, reports an international research team studying an animal model of Parkinson's disease. The clustering of this protein, alpha-synuclein, is the hallmark of Parkinson's and dementia with Lewy bodies, suggesting a new potential compound for therapeutic research.
Scientists have successfully described a crucial structure involved in DNA replication, placing another piece in the puzzle of how life propagates.
China has introduced an unprecedented policy platform for stewarding its fisheries and other marine resources. In order to achieve a true paradigm shift a team of international scientists from within and outside of China recommend major institutional reform.
