Bacteria from an Indian landfill could help eliminate contaminated chemicals. The focus is on pesticides such as lindane or brominated flame retardants, which accumulate in nature and in food chains. Researchers at Empa and Eawag used these bacteria to generate enzymes that can break down these dangerous chemicals.
Russian scientists have developed a simple and easily reproducible cell labeling system that allows tracking the behavior and movement of individual cells when solving problems that require maximum accuracy.
Researchers at the University of Gothenburg have observed the absorption of a single electron by a levitated droplet with such a magnification that it is visible with the naked eye and can even be measured with a normal millimeter scaled ruler.
Researchers at the Cluster of Excellence CIBSS - Centre for Integrative Biological Signalling Studies develop technology to introduce genes into single cells in a targeted manner.
In our study, we constructed a detecting platform based on TpTta-COF nanosheets and fluorescent probe. The TpTta-COF nanosheets can adsorb single-stranded DNA (ss-DNA) probes and quench the fluorescence of ss-DNA. The method enables to capture miR-205 sensitively in aqueous solution with a detection limit of 4.78 nM in the range 0-500 nM and R2 = 0.989, and the method offers great specificity in that it can distinguish the target miRNA from mismatch non-target miRNAs.
Cryo-electron microscopy and computer simulations uncover how a cellular protein helps transport omega-3 fatty acids to the brain and eye, with implications for drug development.
Osaka University researchers create an intelligent nanopore system sensitive enough to detect single SARS-CoV-2 virus particles. By training a machine-learning algorithm, the platform was able to identify between various coronaviruses in just five minutes. This work may lead to fast and accurate point-of-care testing for COVID and other communicable diseases.
Forsight to present clinical data of their blood-based MRD detection platform for DLBCL that detects relapse 200 days earlier than other methods.
Chemical engineers at the University of Illinois Chicago and UCLA have answered longstanding questions about the underlying processes that determine the life cycle of liquid foams. The breakthrough could help improve the commercial production and application of foams in a broad range of industries.
The most accurate distance measurement yet of ultra-diffuse galaxy (UDG) NGC1052-DF2 (DF2) confirms beyond any shadow of a doubt that it is lacking in dark matter. The newly measured distance of 22.1 +/-1.2 megaparsecs was published in Astrophysical Journal Letters on June 9, 2021, are based on 40 orbits of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, with imaging by the Advanced Camera for Surveys and a "tip of the red giant branch" (TRGB) analysis.
