Scientists Pinpoint Crucial Steps in DNA Replication

Scientists Pinpoint Crucial Steps in DNA Replication

The proteins that drive DNA replication—the force behind cellular growth and reproduction—are some of the most complex machines on Earth. The multistep replication process involves hundreds of atomic-scale moving parts that rapidly interact and transform. Mapping that dense molecular machinery is one of the most promising and challenging frontiers in medicine and biology. [More]
Microscopy Becomes Nanoscopy

Microscopy Becomes Nanoscopy

The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) would like to congratulate Eric Betzig, Stefan W Hell and William E Moerner for their award of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2014. NPL scientists are building upon their pioneering work, which has resulted in 'microscopy becoming nanoscopy'. [More]

X-rays and Neutron Beams Reveal Inner Workings of Switch that Regulates Basic Cellular Functions

Using X-rays and neutron beams, a team of researchers from the University of Utah, University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Oak Ridge National Laboratory have revealed the inner workings of a master switch that regulates basic cellular functions, but that also, when mutated, contributes to cancer, cardiovascular disease and other deadly disorders.

Exosomes Play an Important Role in Functioning of Neurons

Exosomes Play an Important Role in Functioning of Neurons

Tiny vesicles containing protective substances which they transmit to nerve cells apparently play an important role in the functioning of neurons. As cell biologists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) have discovered, nerve cells can enlist the aid of mini-vesicles of neighboring glial cells to defend themselves against stress and other potentially detrimental factors.

Study Sheds New Light on Mechanism of Platelet Formation

Platelets are an expensive biomedical commodity. These microscopic cells that come to the rescue when our blood vessels need to be repaired cannot be frozen and are stable for only three to five days at room temperature. [More]
Electron Microscopy Helps Image Atoms Gliding on Surface of 2D Crystals

Electron Microscopy Helps Image Atoms Gliding on Surface of 2D Crystals

Understanding how atoms "glide" and "climb" on the surface of 2D crystals like tungsten disulphide may pave the way for researchers to develop materials with unusual or unique characteristics, according to an international team of researchers. [More]
