Major European cosmetics, food, medicine and plastic producers are breaking the EU's key chemical safety regulation, REACH, by using millions of tonnes of chemicals without completing important safety checks, according to an analysis of government files by Germany's largest environmental charity BUND, a member of the . Two-thirds of 700 chemicals investigated were breaking the rules, it said. It also identified 654 companies in breach of rules.

Fire ant venom compounds may lead to skin treatments

Added: 21.05.2019 17:51 | 7 views | 0 comments

Solenopsins, the main toxic components of fire ant venom, chemically resemble ceramides, which are lipid-like molecules essential for maintaining for the barrier function of the skin. Solenopsin analogs can reduce skin thickening and inflammation in a mouse model of psoriasis, scientists have shown.

Scientists use molecular tethers, chemical 'light sabers' for tissue engineering

Added: 21.05.2019 13:49 | 11 views | 0 comments

Researchers have unveiled a new strategy to keep proteins intact and functional in synthetic biomaterials for tissue engineering. Their approach modifies proteins at a specific point so that they can be chemically tethered to the scaffold using light. Since the tether can also be cut by laser light, this method can create evolving patterns of signal proteins throughout a biomaterial scaffold to grow tissues made up of different types of cells.
