Recently, a sugar ring that reversibly modifies proteins inside cell nucleus and cytoplasm in a process known as O-GlcNAcylation has been revealed to be a key regulator of cell signaling in the body.
Body odor is a deer hunter’s worst enemy, an alert to animals that an ominous presence is lurking, but the science behind suppressing it to give hunters an edge oddly enough could help researchers develop a life-saving device for diabetes patients.
Standing in a full-body scanner at an airport isn’t fun, and the process adds time and stress to a journey. Researchers are reporting a more precise and direct method for detecting explosives from greater distances. The advance could ultimately do away with the need for full-body scanners.
Scientists have discovered that the part of hops that isn’t used for making beer contains healthful antioxidants and could be used to battle cavities and gum disease.
Scientists have produced a synthetic air reference standard that can be used to accurately measure levels of carbon dioxide and methane in the atmosphere. This will help scientists learn more about climate change.
Researchers have used new tools to measure and track B-12 vitamins in the ocean. Once believed to be manufactured only by marine bacteria, the new results show that a whole different class of organism, archaea, can supply this essential vitamin.
Physicists have used carbon dating to confirm that an alleged Fernand Léger painting is definitely a fake.
Research has suggested that human earwax— an easily obtained bodily secretion— could be an overlooked source of personal information.
While the origin of life remains mysterious, scientists are finding more and more evidence that material created in space and delivered to Earth by comet and meteor impacts could have given a boost to the start of life.
Researchers are using a unique method of nanomaterial imaging to more effectively determine the highly variable acid leaching values of Western Australian nickel laterite ores.
Researchers have timed plasmon-generated electrons moving from nanorods to graphene.
Topological insulators are the key to future spintronics technologies. Scientists have unraveled how these strange materials work, overcoming one of the biggest obstacles on the way to next-generation applications.
Scientists have discovered the bonds in a buckyball can be “detuned” when exposed to an electric current in an optical antenna.
Scientists have created a way to fine tune a process critical to the pharmaceutical industry that could save a lot of time and money.
Researchers have developed a relatively low-temperature process to convert certain kinds of plastic waste into liquid fuel as a way to re-use discarded plastic bags and other products.
Winters in Scandinavia were long and cold in the Bronze and Iron Ages, then as now— but a blazing fire was not the only thing to keep people warm. From northwest Denmark, circa 1500-1300 BC, to the Swedish island of Gotland as late as the first century AD, Nordic peoples were imbibing an alcoholic grog.
Scientists have together developed a new, inexpensive material that has the potential to capture and convert solar energy— particularly from the bluer part of the spectrum— much more efficiently than ever before.
The February issue of Chromatography Techniques features articles on mutiple residue pesticides, ancient wines and beers, 2-D HPLC, design innovations, whisky drinks, and more.
Tosoh Bioscience’s TSKgel High Temperature (HT) and Ultra-High Temperature (HT2) GPC Columns are designed for gel permeation chromatography and size exclusion chromatography (GPC/SEC. The release of these columns is accompanied by the EcoSEC High Temperature GPC System for polymer analysis up to 220 C.
Designed to make it quick and easy to choose the right pH electrode for any laboratory application, the Thermo Scientific Orion pH Electrode Selection Guide is an interactive guide that helps the user select the most appropriate pH electrode to meet their indicated needs and budget.
