Temperature Inside Cells Using A Fluorescent Nano Thermometer

Temperature Inside Cells Using A Fluorescent Nano Thermometer

The study explaining sensing temperature inside cells using a fluorescent nano thermometer. The molecule is ideally suited to the task. Its fluorescence lasts only a little while inside the cell, and the duration depends heavily on changes in both temperature and the viscosity of its environment. As everybody knows old thermometers based on the expansion of…

Complex Branching Structures From PER Generating Concatemers

Complex Branching Structures From PER Generating Concatemers

Study that assembling more complex branching structures from PER-generating concatemers that contain higher numbers of binding sites for fluorescent imagers; Finding that lighting up proteins with Immuno-SABER. To better understand how tissues and organs develop, fail to function, and regenerate over time, researchers would like to visualize their constituent cells repertoires of molecules within 3-D…

Researchers Reveal New Insights Into Retina’s Genetic Code

Australian scientists have led the development of the world’s most detailed genetic code the human retina; providing new insights which will help future research to prevent and treat blindness. The retina is the latest part of the human body and the first part of the eye to be mapped as part of the Human Cell…

Outbreak Hints That Zika Virus Can Spread Silently

Outbreak Hints That Zika Virus Can Spread Silently

The study discoverying of the hidding outbreak hints; that Zika virus can spread silently. Infectious diseases such as Zika are global problems, not local problems, and greater international collaboration and coordination is critical if we are to stay ahead of looming threat. Through this study, we developing a framework for a more global; more proactive…

Genetic Features Of Plasmodium Falciparum Parasites

Genetic Features Of Plasmodium Falciparum Parasites

As continent wide genomic study of malaria parasites in Africa, scientists have uncovered the genetic features of Plasmodium falciparum parasites that inhabit different regions of the continent; including the genetic factors that confer resistance to anti-malarial drugs. This sheds new light on the way that drug resistance is emerging in different locations and moving by…

Half Of The Suicides Happens With Firearms

Suicides; Today, faculty members at the Colorado School of Public Health and the University of Colorado School of Medicine at the Anschutz Medical Campus announced the Colorado Gun Storage Map, the first online out-of-home firearm storage map in the country. Until now, there’s been no web-based resource to link community members and clinicians to off-site…

Bronchodilator Reversibility Was Associate With Wheezing

Bronchodilator Reversibility Was Higher In COPD Patient

Measures of reversibility are of limited value for distinguishing smoke related chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) from asthma; but bronchodilator response (BDR) testing may be a phenotypic marker for asthma; so according to study results published in European Respiratory Journal. Researchers examine findings from 3 large population studies to compare different methods for measuring BDR…
