In a new study, UT Dallas researchers outline how they used fluorescent molecules to “tag” DNA and monitor a process called DNA looping, a natural biological mechanism involved in rearranging genetic material in some types of cells.
Researchers have succeeded in tracking a single protein that regulates the neurotransmitter serotonin, making it possible to study the dynamics of the protein which regulates mood, appetite and sleep, at an unprecedented level of detail.
A device about the size of a dime can manipulate living materials such as blood cells and entire small organisms, using sound waves, according to a team of bioengineers and biochemists from Penn State.
The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is planning to take another look at their 15-year-old cell phone safety standards to determine whether or not users of the mobile devices are being adequately protected from emitted radiation.
There's nothing like a new pair of eyeglasses to bring fine details into sharp relief.
The plague, bacterial dysentery, and cholera have one thing in common: These dangerous diseases are caused by bacteria which infect their host using a sophisticated injection apparatus.
Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology and University of California San Francisco have advanced scientists' ability to view a clear picture of a single cellular structure in motion.
The Biophysical Journal is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published biweekly by Cell Press on behalf of the Biophysical Society. It was established in 1960. The editor-in-chief is Edward Egelman. It covers all aspects of biophysics. It is the leading international journal for original research in molecular, cellular, and system biophysics. Modern biophysics is a broad and rapidly advancing field encompassing the study of biological structures with a focus on mechanisms at the...
The European Biophysics Journal is a scientific journal published by Springer Science+Business Media on behalf of the European Biophysical Societies Association. Published works occur in the field of biophysics (the study of biological phenomena using physical methods and concepts). It publishes original papers, reviews and letters. The editor-in-chief is Anthony Watts of University of Oxford. Areas of research that are frequently published in the journal include: structure and dynamics of...
- A pivoted catch designed to fall into a notch on a ratchet wheel so as to allow movement in only one direction (e.g. on a windlass or in a clock mechanism), or alternatively to move the wheel in one direction.
