Researchers have discovered a gene that may reveal whether people are likely to respond well to...
A simple blood test will soon be able to catch the vast majority of a group of chronic blood...
Researchers have determined the structure of the rubella virus capsid protein, which is central to the virus's ability to assemble into an infectious particle and to infect humans.
Researchers reported that a virulent new strain of influenza appears to retain its ability to cause serious disease in humans even after it develops resistance to antiviral medications.
Global efforts to curb malaria are stalling after a drop in funds to buy bed nets, according to the latest report Wednesday from the World Health Organization. For the second year in a row, WHO noted a dramatic decline in the number of bed nets given out to protect people from the mosquitoes that...
JEOL and Gatan announced a joint initiative that brings Serial Block Face imaging to the JEOL family of scanning electron microscopes. Researchers will be able to image 3D structures of biological and materials samples at ultrahigh resolution using the JEOL JSM-7100F Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope with an integrated Gatan 3View Serial Block Face Imaging System.
AVIA Biosystems’ Model 2304 automated protein denaturation system automates protein stability determinations using chemical denaturation. Developed to facilitate the formulation of biologics in a safe and stable form, the system uses intrinsic or extrinsic fluorescence to monitor the conformational changes associated with protein unfolding (denaturation).
Need a hand lifting something? A robotic device invented by University of Pennsylvania engineering students can help its wearer carry an additional 40 pounds.
A protein called Tet1 is partly responsible for giving primordial germ cells a clean epigenetic slate before developing into sperm and egg cells, according to a new study.
David Kwiatkowski's six-month stint at the Baltimore Veterans Affairs medical center was about to end in 2008 when a doctor proposed extending the traveling technician's contract. Don't do it, one nurse warned. "If you keep him, we're going to management, the police, and outside the VA, because...
Blood clots play an unexpected role in protecting the body from the deadly effects of bacteria by absorbing bacterial toxins, researchers have found.
A new computational model developed by MIT neuroscientists explains how the brain maintains the balance between plasticity and stability, and how it can learn very similar tasks without interference between them.
A new study show that in mice with a rodent form of multiple sclerosis (MS), vitamin D appears to block damage-causing immune cells from migrating to the central nervous system.
Scientists have devised the first method to measure the push and pull of cells as embryonic tissue develops. The cells’ tiny forces are measured in 3-D tissues and living embryos.
Researchers have uncovered a genetic deficiency in males that can trigger the development of one of the most common types of liver cancer and forms of diabetes.
The Biologics Analysis Workflow from Bio-Rad Laboratories is designed for more reproducible purity assessment of protein-based therapeutics in cGMP-regulated environments. The workflow combines the release of several new products—the GS-900 calibrated densitometer, Image Lab 5.0 software, and QC Colloidal Coomassie stain—with the company’s Criterion precast gels and Precision Plus Protein standards.
