The candy bar you swallowed right before jumping on your bicycle keeps you going only so long before the muscles in your legs and hips reach for something with more power — the long chain fatty acids stored to keep you moving for hours. In a report in the journal Cell Metabolism, Dr. Bert O'Malley, professor and chair of molecular and cellular biology at Baylor College of Medicine, Dr. Brian York, assistant professor in the same department, and colleagues at BCM describe how a...

Scientists at the University of Warwick have developed a computation which simultaneously doubles the resolution, sensitivity and mass accuracy of Fourier Transform Mass Spectrometry (FTMS) at no extra cost. Researchers in the University´s Department of Chemistry have solved the 40-year-old phasing problem which allows plotting of spectra in absorption mode. This breakthrough can be used in all FTMS including FT-ICR, Orbitrap and FT-TOF instruments and will have applications in...

A method to speed up gunshot residue detection and another capable of identifying antipsychotics in the brain are the latest pieces of work of the Metabolomips group of the University of the Basque Country The University of the Basque Country's (UPV/EHU) METABOLOMIPs group develops analytical methods to help characterize different types of substances, and focuses on the forensic sciences, in particular. For example, they have just developed a methodology for detecting gunshot residues...

A new blood test is twice as sensitive and can detect breast cancer recurrence a full year earlier than current blood tests, according to a scientist who reported here today at the 243rd National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS). The report was among more than 11,000 presentations on new developments in science scheduled this week at the meeting, held by the world's largest scientific society. Daniel Raftery, Ph.D., who reported on the test, pointed out that...

Findings lead to creation of world´s first liver metabolite data set By analyzing the hundreds of metabolic products present in the liver, researchers with the UC Irvine Center for Epigenetics & Metabolism have discovered that circadian rhythms – our own body clock – greatly control the production of such key building blocks as amino acids, carbohydrates and lipids. They identified more than 600 liver-originated metabolites, which are the chemical substances created...

Glowing 'Spinach' produces a snapshot of abnormal molecules inside diseased cells, providing clues about how to treat disorders By engineering cells to express a modified RNA called "Spinach," researchers have imaged small-molecule metabolites in living cells and observed how their levels change over time. Metabolites are the products of individual cell metabolism. The ability to measure their rate of production could be used to recognize a cell gone metabolically awry, as in cancer, or...


Word of the Day
mallemaroking
  • Nautical, the visiting and carousing of sailors in the Greenland ships.
This word is apparently from a confusion of two similar Dutch words: 'mallemerok,' a foolish woman, and 'mallemok,' a name for some persons among the crew of a whaling vessel.
