National Radio Astronomy Observatory [ Watch the Video Answering Questions Of Where Prebiotic Molecules Form ] Using new technology at the telescope and in laboratories, researchers have discovered an important pair of prebiotic molecules in interstellar space. The discoveries indicate that some basic chemicals that are key steps on the way to life may have formed on dusty ice grains floating between the stars. The scientists used the National Science Foundation's Green Bank...

The circadian clocks that control and influence dozens of basic biological processes have an unexpected "snooze button" that helps cells adapt to changes in their environment. A study by Vanderbilt University researchers published online Feb. 17 by the journal Nature provides compelling new evidence that at least some species can alter the way that their biological clocks function by using different "synonyms" that exist in the genetic code. "This provides organisms with a novel and...

UCLA researchers discover new point of attack for drug therapy Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of late-life dementia. The disorder is thought to be caused by a protein known as amyloid-beta, or Abeta, which clumps together in the brain, forming plaques that are thought to destroy neurons. This destruction starts early, too, and can presage clinical signs of the disease by up to 20 years. For decades now, researchers have been trying, with limited success, to develop drugs...

New market research report “Glutamine Research in China” worked out by Guangzhou CCM Information Science and Technology Co., Ltd has been recently published by Market Publishers Ltd. According to the study, the Chinese glutamine output was estimated at approximately 1,750 tonnes in 2012. London, UK (PRWEB) January 21, 2013 In spite of the stable gradual growth of the China´s glutamine market, the local industry currently involves only few glutamine producers. In 2012, the...

Researchers Building Nanomachine Inspired By Ribosomes
2013-01-13 10:16:51

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports — Your Universe Online Researchers at the University of Manchester have developed a machine that can effectively mimic the process by which the ribosome translates genetic code to build protein in the cells of our bodies. The nanomachine, which is only a few millionths of a millimeter long, was constructed by professor David Leigh of the university´s School of Chemistry, and in a statement, the institute called it “the most advanced...

Secret Of Herbal Malaria Cure Unlocked

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online For over a millennium the Chinese have used an herb known as Chang Shan to treat fevers associated with malaria. While its effectiveness in treating the disease has long been confirmed by modern medicine, its exact function has remained mystery. However, in a recent study, scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) say they have uncovered the molecular mechanism that gives this ancient homeopathic drug its healing...

At crucial points in the metabolism of all organisms, a protein with the unwieldy name of Translation Elongation Factor P (EF-P, for short) takes center stage. What it actually does during protein synthesis has only now been elucidated — by researchers at LMU. The research group led by Kirsten Jung, Professor of Microbiology at LMU, actually focused on how bacteria cope with stress, for example how the receptor meolecule CadC monitors the acidity in the environment and alerts the...

The Hunt Is On For Extraterrestrial Amino Acids
2012-11-16 15:54:01

NASA The hunt for the organic molecules that create proteins and enzymes critical for life here on Earth has largely happened in sophisticated terrestrial laboratories equipped with high-tech gadgetry needed to tease out their presence in space rocks and other extraterrestrial samples. A technologist at NASA´s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., now wants to take that search to the sources themselves. Stephanie Getty, who recently was selected as Goddard´s...
