Natural 'breakdown' of chemicals predicts lung damage in 9/11 firefighters

Added: 19.08.2019 19:20 | 2 views | 0 comments

Abnormal levels of more than two dozen metabolites -- chemicals produced in the body as it breaks down fats, proteins and carbohydrates -- can reliably predict which Sept. 11 firefighters developed lung disease and which did not, a new analysis shows.

Structure of the molecular machine that links carbohydrate and lipid metabolism

Added: 19.08.2019 18:39 | 4 views | 0 comments

A research team has unraveled the three-dimensional structure and molecular mechanism of ATP citrate lyase (ACLY). This is a central metabolic enzyme -- a protein that accelerates chemical reactions -- important for the production of fatty acids and cholesterol in the human liver. The reported findings could help targeting ACLY in cancer and metabolic diseases such as atherosclerosis.

Compound speeds sexual development and decline

Added: 19.08.2019 18:21 | 53 views | 0 comments

Every day, people are exposed to myriad chemicals both natural and synthetic, some of which may affect human physical development. Researchers have discovered nacq#1, a natural compound produced by a soil roundworm that dramatically influences time to sexual maturity and lifespan in tiny amounts. Because nacq#1 and its related nuclear receptors are so similar between the worm and humans, miniscule amounts of small molecules could similarly impact human development and lifespan.

Highly uniform and low hysteresis pressure sensor to increase practical applicability

Added: 19.08.2019 18:18 | 11 views | 0 comments

Researchers have designed a flexible pressure sensor that is expected to have a much wider applicability. A research team fabricated a piezoresistive pressure sensor of high uniformity with low hysteresis by chemically grafting a conductive polymer onto a porous elastomer template.
