Adiponectin Hormone May Affect A Tooth In The Mouth

In this research, they showed that the protein, adiponectin can perhaps affect how a tooth shifts in the mouth. Fellow Sigrid Haugen and co-workers have, investigated this phenomenon. A frequent problem in orthodontic practice is that the teeth do not remain in their new positions. In the body, some proteins works as small keys that unlock cells and tell them to perform a specific task.

Scientists Succeed to Trace 6,000 Year-old History of Tobacco Use

A research team from Washington State University has shown for the first time that nicotine residue can be extracted from plaque, also known as "dental calculus," on the teeth of ancient tobacco users. The research provides a new method that could help trace the ancient use of tobacco and other intoxicating plants further back into prehistory. The study findings were published in Journal of Archaeological Science Reports.

New Method Allows Imaging Of Many Biological Molecules

New research will improve how scientists "see inside" molecular structures in solution, allowing for much more precise ways to image data in various fields, from astronomy to drug discovery. The new method will allow for the visualization of many more biological molecules, providing critical information about what is inside molecules to scientists who currently can only access their outer shape or envelope. This study was published in Nature Methods.
