Honey, I shrunk the cell culture

Added: 17.11.2018 17:54 | 6 views | 0 comments

A new 'shrink ray' can change the size and shape of a block of gel-like material while human or bacterial cells grow on it. This tool holds promise for biomedical researchers, including those seeking to shed light on how to grow replacement tissues and organs for implants.

Insect antibiotic provides new way to eliminate bacteria

Added: 17.11.2018 0:22 | 18 views | 0 comments

An antibiotic called thanatin attacks the way the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria is built. Researchers have now found out that this happens through a previously unknown mechanism. Thanatin, produced naturally by the spined soldier bug, can therefore be used to develop new classes of antibiotics.

Resistant bacteria: Can raw vegetables and salad pose a health risk?

Added: 17.11.2018 0:22 | 16 views | 0 comments

Salad is popular with people who want to maintain a balanced and healthy diet. Salad varieties are often offered for sale ready-cut and film-packaged. It is known that these types of fresh produce may be contaminated with bacteria that are relevant from the point of view of hygiene. Researchers have now shown that these bacteria may also harbor bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics.

'Bionic mushrooms' fuse nanotech, bacteria and fungi

Researchers have taken an ordinary white button mushroom from a grocery store and made it bionic, supercharging it with 3D-printed clusters of cyanobacteria that generate electricity and swirls of graphene nanoribbons that can collect the current.


Dodging antibiotic resistance by curbing bacterial evolution

Added: 16.11.2018 21:45 | 12 views | 0 comments

Lowering mutation rates in harmful bacteria might be an as yet untried way to hinder the emergence of antimicrobial pathogens. One target for drug development might be a protein factor, DNA translocase Mfd, that enables bacteria to evolve rapidly by promoting mutations in many different bacterial species. This action speeds antibiotic resistance, including multi-drug resistance. Working on drugs to block Mfd and similar factors could be a revolutionary strategy to address the worldwide crisis of treatment-resistant infectious diseases.
