Green Process to Reduce Molecular Switching Waste Opens Way for Industrial Nanotech Applications

Dartmouth researchers have found a solution using visible light to reduce waste produced in chemically activated molecular switches, opening the way for industrial applications of nanotechnology ranging from anti-cancer drug delivery to LCD displays and molecular motors. [More]
New Method for Preprogramming Timing to Initiate Molecular Self-Organization

New Method for Preprogramming Timing to Initiate Molecular Self-Organization

At the National Institute for Materials Science, Senior Researcher Kazunori Sugiyasu and co-workers developed a method for preprogramming the timing of molecules to initiate self-organization by mixing molecules with modified side chains. The results of this research will be published in the German Chemical Society’s journal “Angewandte Chemie International Edition” in the near future. [More]
Nanomimics of Host Cell Membranes can Trick Malaria Parasites

Nanomimics of Host Cell Membranes can Trick Malaria Parasites

Malaria parasites invade human red blood cells, they then disrupt them and infect others. Researchers at the University of Basel and the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute have now developed so-called nanomimics of host cell membranes that trick the parasites. This could lead to novel treatment and vaccination strategies in the fight against malaria and other infectious diseases. Their research results have been published in the scientific journal ACS Nano. [More]
XFEL Imaging Technique Reveals Atomic Structure of Proteins in Action

XFEL Imaging Technique Reveals Atomic Structure of Proteins in Action

A research team led by physicists at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) has proven a method that makes it possible to find the atomic structure of proteins in action by producing “snapshots” of them with unprecedented spatial and temporal resolution. [More]
Researchers Visualize Protein Interactions at Nanometer Spatial Resolution in Live Cells

Researchers Visualize Protein Interactions at Nanometer Spatial Resolution in Live Cells

Cells are restless. They move during embryogenesis, tissue repair, regeneration, chemotaxis. Even in disease, tumor metastasis, cells get around. To do this, they have to keep reorganizing their cytoskeleton, removing pieces from one end of a microtubule and adding them to the front, like a railroad with a limited supply of tracks. The EB family of proteins helps regulate this process and can act as a scaffold for other proteins involved in pushing the microtubule chain forward. [More]
