Atomic Force Microscopy Reveals One Molecule At A Time

According to a new study, researchers have found a new way to see and measure protein assembly in real time and with unprecedented detail. This is revealed by using a new mode of atomic force microscopy, Proteins and molecules assemble and disassemble naturally as part of many essential biological processes. It is very difficult to observe these mechanisms, which are often complex and take place at the nanometer scale, far smaller than the normal visible range. The study was published in Nature Nanotechnology.

Common Mental Illness Is Occured From Job Strain

According to a study, researchers examine that workplaces that reduce job strain could prevent up to 14% of new cases of common mental illness from occurring. They confirm that high job strain is associated with an increased risk of developing common mental disorders such as depression and anxiety amongst middle-aged workers. The study was published in the Lancet Psychiatry.

An Unusual Forms Of Proteins That Affect Gene Expression

Researchers examined that by turning genes on and off is an intricate process involving communication between many different types of proteins that interact with DNA. These communications can go awry, resulting in conditions like cancer. Researchers have uncovered an unusual form of cross-talk between proteins that affect gene expression, suggesting new ways of inhibiting metastasis in cancer.  The study was published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry.

Age-Related Racial Disparities In Suicide Rates Among U.S. Youth

A new study suggests the suicide rate is roughly two times higher for black children ages 5-12 compared with white children of the same age group. Suicide is a major public health problem and a leading cause of death in the United States. While suicide among young children is quite rare, it can be devastating to families, friends, and communities. Past patterns of national youth suicide rates revealed higher rates for white compared to black youth.

Study Shines A Light On Biology of Malaria Parasite

A team of researchers led by a University of California, Riverside, a scientist have found that various stages of the development of human malaria parasites, including stages involved in malaria transmission, are linked to epigenetic features and how chromatin — the complex of DNA and proteins within the nucleus — is organized and structured in these parasites
