New Type of Nanocrystalline Cellulose Helps Prevent Spread of Virus into Cells

New Type of Nanocrystalline Cellulose Helps Prevent Spread of Virus into Cells

There are many viral diseases in the world for which no pharmaceutical treatment exists. These include, among others, dengue fever, which is spread by mosquitoes in the tropics, as well as a type of diarrhea, which is more familiar in Finland and is easily spread by the hands and can be dangerous especially for small children and the elderly.

Novel Nanosensors Help Track ABA Stress Hormones in Plants

Novel Nanosensors Help Track ABA Stress Hormones in Plants

Biologists at UC San Diego have succeeded in visualizing the movement within plants of a key hormone responsible for growth and resistance to drought. The achievement will allow researchers to conduct further studies to determine how the hormone helps plants respond to drought and other environmental stresses driven by the continuing increase in the atmosphere’s carbon dioxide, or CO2, concentration.

Fluid Dynamics Plays a Crucial Role in Self-Assembled Structures Made by Attaching DNA to Nanoscale Building Blocks

Fluid Dynamics Plays a Crucial Role in Self-Assembled Structures Made by Attaching DNA to Nanoscale Building Blocks

By attaching short sequences of single-stranded DNA to nanoscale building blocks, researchers can design structures that can effectively build themselves. The building blocks that are meant to connect have complementary DNA sequences on their surfaces, ensuring only the correct pieces bind together as they jostle into one another while suspended in a test tube.

Some Nanoparticles Can Harm DNA

Thousands of consumer products — including cosmetics, sunscreens, and clothing — contain nanoparticles added by manufacturers to improve texture, kill microbes, or enhance shelf life, among other purposes. However, several studies have shown that some of these engineered nanoparticles can be toxic to cells. [More]
