Max Planck Institute Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (Bonn, Germany), Cornell University (USA), and the University of Cologne (Germany) have for the first time detected a carbon-bearing molecule with a "branched" structure in interstellar space. The molecule, iso-propyl cyanide (i-C3H7CN), was discovered in a giant gas cloud called Sagittarius B2, a region of ongoing star formation close to the center of our galaxy that is a hot-spot for molecule-hunting...

Washington University in St. Louis Scientists have identified a ‘weakness’ in the clover genome that biases species to evolve the same trait Writing about the weird soft-bodied fossils found in the Burgess Shale in the Canadian Rockies, paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould noted that of 25 initial body plans exhibited by the fossils, all but four were quickly eliminated. If we rewound the tape, he asked, and cast the dice once more, would the same four body plans be selected? He...

Zebrafish study suggests new research in The FASEB Journal confirms that zebrafish can be used as a model of human exposure to cyanide that vitamin B2 is an antidote to cyanide poisoning With the remains of a recent lottery winner having been exhumed for foul play related to cyanide poisoning, future winners might wonder what they can do to avoid the same fate. A new report in The FASEB Journal involving zebrafish suggests that riboflavin, also known as vitamin B2, may mitigate the toxic...

National audit of antidote stocking in acute hospitals in the UK There is "substantial variation" in the stocks of essential antidotes used to treat various types of life threatening poisoning incidents in UK acute hospitals, finds research published online in Emergency Medicine Journal. National guidance produced jointly by the National Poisons Information Service and the College of Emergency Medicine in 2008 recommends the stocking of 29 antidotes at every hospital with an emergency...

Researchers have found a new biomarker for cyanide poisoning, which may extend its detection window in death investigations by weeks if not months. Unless cyanide is discovered at the time of death on the mouth or nose, elevated cyanide concentrations can only be found for up to two days under current toxicological testing. A team of researchers have found a substance that appears in the liver following cyanide poisoning that could serve as a stable biomarker for a longer period of time....
