Mannitol, a sugar alcohol common in sugar-free gum and candy, prevents clumps of protein from forming in the brain— a process that is characteristic of Parkinson's disease.
Researchers develop method to design synthetic materials and quickly turn the design into reality using computer optimization and 3D printing.
A new subduction zone forming off the coast of Portugal heralds the beginning of a cycle that will see the Atlantic Ocean close as continental Europe moves closer to America.
The lipidation states in certain proteins in the brain that are related to the development of Alzheimer disease appear to differ depending on genotype and cognitive diseases, and levels of these protein and peptides appear to be influenced by diet.
This is an image of a water droplet bouncing. It was caused by surface tension, a contractive tendency of the surface of a liquid that allows it to resist an external force.
People attribute minds to entities they perceive as being targets of harm, even when the entity in question is a robot or a corpse.
Europe has never been more active in space, with a crowded manifest of ESA launches across the rest of the year. But where are all these varied missions born? See for yourself this October.
Longer-lasting and better– the next-generation solar cells and optoelectronic devices will tout these properties and more when created from a combination of graphene and other one-atom thick materials.
pH measurement accuracy is vital on a wide range of applications across many industries. A theory guide and tips poster can help you obtain accurate pH measurements.
Mechanical forces normally accelerate chemical reactions. However, in the case of disulfide bonds, which are present in large numbers in proteins, force-induced structural changes result in a relative deceleration above a certain threshold.
In a remote part of northern Lake Michigan, divers have started looking at an underwater pit, hoping to find the resting place of the Griffin, a ship commanded by the 17th century French explorer La Salle.
Unagi, the sea-going Japanese freshwater eel, harbors a fluorescent protein that could serve as the basis for a revolutionary new clinical test for bilirubin, a critical indicator of human liver function, hemolysis and jaundice.
