Wave Of Blue Fluorescence Reveals Spread Of Death In Worms
2013-07-24 08:45:45

Wellcome Trust The final biological events in the life of a worm are described today, revealing how death spreads like a wave from cell to cell until the whole organism is dead. When individual cells die, it triggers a chemical chain reaction that leads to the breakdown of cell components and a build-up of molecular debris. The molecular mechanisms of this are reasonably well understood at a cellular level but we know much less about how death spreads throughout an organism at the end...

To Shed Light On Biological Processes, Tiny Molecules That Glow In Water Were Designed

University of Miami researchers are creating fluorescent molecules that can be turned on and off in aqueous environments to visualize activity within cells University of Miami scientists have developed a way to switch fluorescent molecules on and off within aqueous environments, by strategically trapping the molecules inside water-soluble particles and controlling them with ultraviolet light. The new system can be used to develop better fluorescent probes for biomedical research....

UVOST® allows rapid screening of most petroleum-based light non-aqueous phase liquids (LNAPLs). Fargo, ND (PRWEB) May 04, 2012 Dakota Technologies introduces the UVOST®, a direct-push delivered sensor that allows rapid screening of most petroleum-based light non-aqueous phase liquids (LNAPLs). This tool uses laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) technology to immediately detect sub-surface contamination without having to draw samples or wait for lab results. The UVOST responds...

A study of bound protons and neutrons conducted at the Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility has allowed scientists, for the first time, to extract information through experimentation about the internal structure of free neutrons, without the assistance of a theoretical model. The result was published in the Feb. 4 issue of Physical Review Letters. The major hurdle for scientists who study the internal structure of the neutron is that most neutrons are bound up...

BIRMINGHAM, N.J., July 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Photon Technology International (PTI), a known innovator in fluorescence with over 26 years of experience is once again expanding the frontiers of detection to attomolar levels with its new QuantaMaster(TM) 40 Spectrofluorometer. While typical spectrofluorometers struggle with picomolar (10(-12))( )detection, which is already a very tiny amount, the new PTI system can now detect attomolar (10(-18)) amounts, allowing it to detect six orders of...

Scientists have discovered that certain fish are capable of glowing red. Research published today in BMC Ecology includes striking images of fish fluorescing vivid red light. Due to absorption of 'red' wavelengths of sunlight by sea-water, objects which look red under normal conditions appear grey or black at depths below 10m. This has contributed to the belief among marine biologists that red colors are of no importance to fish. Nico Michiels, from the University of Tbingen, Germany, led a...

By Maggie Fox, Health and Science Correspondent WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Fluorescent shrimp, crabs that detect ultraviolet light in the sunless depths, and an unseen creature that tumbled a massive camera have surprised scientists diving in the Gulf of Mexico. Their expedition has turned up an array of creatures that use fluorescence in ways previously unknown to science, the team, a collaboration of federally funded researchers, said on Friday. The discoveries suggest that even...

Cobalt is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Co and atomic number 27. Notable characteristics Cobalt is a hard ferromagnetic silver-white element. The Curie temperature is of 1388 K with 1.6~1.7 Bohr magnetons per atom. It is frequently associated with nickel, and both are characteristic ingredients of meteoric iron. Mammals require small amounts of cobalt salts. Cobalt-60, an artificially produced radioactive isotope of cobalt, is an important radioactive...
