Researchers from Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah have developed a new drug that can potentially be used as a standalone or combination treatment against a common blood cancer.
New study showed that it is still possible for the aging process to be reversed.
A new study revealed that the regulatory proteins that control the inflammatory immune signaling pathways in cells responsible lung-constricting asthma attacks can be turned off.
A group of scientists from the California Institute of Technology has managed to bring silicon to life for the first time by successfully persuading proteins to breed silicon-carbon bonds that have the ability to make human-made bonds.
Scientists sucessfully synthesized a RNA enzyme capable ot storing information and replicating itself, taking a step closer to the recreation of RNA World.
A new study found a strong link between red meat consumption and increased risk of kidney failure.
A new study of a fossil of giant beaver collected in 1845 provides new insight in the study of ancient proteins
A new study suggests the overwight adults and people with increased protein intake may tend to spend more time in the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) stage of sleep.
Mussels secrete proteins from their feet that allow them to cling to rocks in the face of powerful waves. By mimicking this technique, researchers have created a simple synthetic material that can prime and fuse two surfaces underwater.
"We know that many people have difficulty distinguishing between healthy and unhealthy food. By adding seaweed to processed foods we can make food healthier. In many cases we also get tastier food, and it may also help reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases," said the author of a University of Southern Denmark study.
The ability of spiders to adapt to their local environment and humidity levels by altering the viscosity of their "web glue" may help scientists develop stronger adhesives.
Male crickets often use edible gifts to attract females during mating. However, unique proteins contained in this gift may alter female's behavior to ensure reproductive success.
People are advised to eat increased amounts of seafood, bur almost half of it is wasted each year. Since overfishing, pollution and climate change are already impacting fish populations, scientists are examining ways to reduce waste in order to sustain future demands.
In order to create a more stable source of cancer drugs, Stanford University researchers turned to extracting cancer-fighting proteins from an endangered plant. They were able to transfer this into a common lab plant successfully, and hope to apply the same technique to yeast.
