Researchers team has tried to know the function of proteins and more specifically with enzymes. The DNA of every organism holds the blueprints for building all the proteins it needs for its metabolic processes. While researchers already know what the blueprints look like for most proteins, they do not understand what many of these proteins do in the body.

Researchers team from the University of Hyderabad in India has enhanced molecular detection at low concentration levels by arranging nanoparticles on nanowires to develop Raman spectroscopy. Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) uses electromagnetic fields to improve Raman scattering and boost sensitivity in standard dyes such as R6G by more than one billionfold. As medicine and pharmacology investigate nanoscale processes, it has become increasingly important to identify and characterize different molecules
The study found that both blacks and whites face the similar risk of evolving diabetes when all biological factors for the disease are considered over time. The finding flips long-held beliefs that there is an unexplained or genetic reason why blacks have double the rate of diabetes linked to whites by midlife, which is considered early onset. This study was published in the journal JAMA.
Biofilm formation plays a critical role in antimicrobial resistance in Staphylococcus aureus . In a new study, the researchers investigated the potential of crude extracts of 79 Micronesian marine microorganisms to inhibit S. aureus biofilm formation. The results showed that an extract of Streptomyces sp. MC025 inhibited Staphylococcus aureus biofilm formation.
Researchers established a link between inflammation and a common cellular process, autophagy , which could treat better or even prevent diseases of the gut (colon cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis). The results published in the journal Nature Communications.
You are what you eat when it comes to fat, report scientists from McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) in the journal Science Advances.
A new study published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry has shown that the enzyme that makes the El Tor family of Vibrio cholerae resistant to those antibiotics has a different mechanism of action from any comparable proteins observed in bacteria so far. Understanding that mechanism better equips researchers to overcome the challenge it presents in a world with increasing antibiotic resistance.
Exposure to the children's television series Peppa Pig may be contributing to unrealistic expectations of primary care and encouraging inappropriate use of services suggests a doctor in the Christmas issue of The BMJ.
Benzodiazepine and related drug use is associated to a 40% increase in mortality among persons with Alzheimer's disease , according to a study from the University of Eastern Finland. The study findings were published in the International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry .
Applying new math, Kristina Crona, an American University assistant professor who researches in the area of mathematical biology, and her colleagues show how ranking pathogen mutants can help scientists understand how mutants evolve to resist drug treatments. This line of research could have implications for the treatment of diseases that can resist drug treatments, such as HIV and malaria.
A ground-breaking new research hub has been set up to help halt future outbreaks of killer diseases like Ebola and Zika. The landmark project will help to increase vaccine coverage across the globe and improve the response to deadly outbreaks through the rapid deployment of life-saving vaccines.
