In a report published on Wednesday, researchers warn that a fair amount of processed and fast food actually contains phosphorus additives, which can be harmful for people with advanced kidney disease. High blood levels of phosphorus can lead to heart disease, bone disease, and even death among patients with advanced kidney disease.  These patients must avoid certain meats, dairy products, whole grains, and nuts that are naturally in phosphorus, according to what researchers wrote in the...

Scientist identify the chemical forms of phosphorus with nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Phosphorus is one of the key nutrients that can cause algal blooms and related water quality problems in lakes, rivers, and estuaries worldwide.  Phosphorus entering waters originates from a variety of sources.  Agricultural land receiving long term applications of organic by-products such as animal manure is one of the major contributors.  Such soils often become enriched with P,...

Get ready to send the biology textbooks back to the printer. In a new paper published in Nature, Benjamin Van Mooy, a geochemist with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), and his colleagues report that microscopic plants growing in the Sargasso Sea have come up with a completely unexpected way of building their cells. Until now, it was thought that all cells are surrounded by membranes containing molecules called phospholipids "“ oily compounds that contain phosphorus,...

New research in an animal model suggests that a diet high in inorganic phosphates, which are found in a variety of processed foods including meats, cheeses, beverages, and bakery products, might speed growth of lung cancer tumors and may even contribute to the development of those tumors in individuals predisposed to the disease. The study also suggests that dietary regulation of inorganic phosphates may play an important role in lung cancer treatment. The research, using a mouse model, was...

According to research from Sweden, large sources of pollution to the Baltic Sea have been missed by existing monitoring effects. The Baltic Sea has had more and more health issues since the 1960s, due to the disposal of untreated human waste and toxic materials such as heavy metals. The countries that border the Baltic Sea have put together an action plan to stem the tide of contaminants entering the sea. Gia Destouni, a professor from Stockholm University, said these areas were being left...

Officials in Ohio are urging residents not to sweep their leaves into the street for collection because they can wash into streams and kill fish. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency said soluble nutrients such as phosphorus from dried leaves on streets and curb sides can wash into storm drains that discharge directly into nearby waterways and cause algae blooms that are fatal to fish. Property owners should consider raking leaves only to a grassy area along the road where runoff water...

Researchers have created a new material that overcomes two of the major obstacles to solar power: it absorbs all the energy contained in sunlight, and generates electrons in a way that makes them easier to capture. Ohio State University chemists and their colleagues combined electrically conductive plastic with metals including molybdenum and titanium to create the hybrid material. "There are other such hybrids out there, but the advantage of our material is that we can cover the entire range...

In chemistry, a phosphate is a polyatomic ion or radical consisting of one phosphorus atom and four oxygen. In the ionic form, it carries a -3 formal charge, and is denoted PO43-. In a biochemical setting, a free phosphate ion in solution is called inorganic phosphate, to distinguish it from phosphates bound in the form of ATP, or perhaps in DNA or RNA. Inorganic phosphate is generally denoted Pi. Inorganic phosphate can be formed by the reactions of ATP, or ADP, with the formation of the...
