Plasmas attack bacterial cells on several levels RUB researchers analyse the mechanism of action of UV photons and radicals As they destroy bacteria very efficiently, plasmas constitute an alternative to chemical disinfectants and potentially to antibiotics, as well. How they achieve this effect has been investigated by biologists, plasma physicists and chemists at the Ruhr-Universität (RUB). Cold atmospheric-pressure plasmas attack the prokaryote’s cell envelope, proteins and DNA....

Reboot’s revolutionary formula reduces oxidative stress, can slow the aging process, and boosts wellbeing. Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 17, 2013 Researchers have just confirmed the unique efficacy of Reboot. Of all the antioxidant supplements out there, like Vitamin C or generic botanical blends, only Reboot has been clinically tested with a placebo human study and proven to increase the body’s natural defenses against the cell and DNA damage associated with aging. Researchers...

Work on Criegee intermediate published in Science magazine Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories' Combustion Research Facility, the University of Manchester, Bristol University, University of Southampton and Hong Kong Polytechnic have successfully measured reaction rates of a second Criegee intermediate, CH3CHOO, and proven that the reactivity of the atmospheric chemical depends strongly on which way the molecule is twisted. The measurements will provide further insight into...

A new clinical study that demonstrates an inverse correlation between antioxidant diet and stroke risk uses Brunswick Laboratories' ORAC assay as the measure of total antioxidant capacity. Southborough, Mass. (PRWEB) August 03, 2012 A new study published in the American Heart Association´s journal Stroke (1) concludes that ““¦dietary TAC [total antioxidant capacity] is inversely associated with total stroke among CVD [cardiovascular disease]-free women and...

Why do we age, and what makes some of us live longer than others? For decades, researchers have been trying to answer these questions by elucidating the molecular causes of aging. One of the most popular theories is that the accumulation of oxygen radicals over time might be the underlying culprit in aging. Oxygen radicals are chemically reactive molecules that can damage cellular components such as lipids, proteins and nucleic acids, resulting in "oxidative stress." The possible link...

Gallium nitride (GaN) is a highly promising material for a wide range of optical and high-power electronic devices, which can be fabricated by dry etching with plasmas. However, the plasma-induced defects and surface residues that remain after such processes tend to degrade the optical and electrical properties of the devices. A team of Japanese researchers has developed and tested a new way to "heal" such defects. The team exposed plasma-damaged GaN to hydrogen (H) radicals at room...


Word of the Day
vermicular
  • Like a worm in form or movement; vermiform; tortuous or sinuous; also, writhing or wriggling.
  • Like the track or trace of a worm; appearing as if worm-eaten; vermiculate.
  • Marked with fine, close-set, wavy or tortuous lines of color; vermiculated.
  • A form of rusticated masonry which is so wrought as to appear thickly indented with worm-tracks.
This word ultimately comes from the Latin 'vermis,' worm.
