By combining low temperatures and NMR spectroscopy, the scientists visualized seven intermediate forms of the CylR2 protein while cooling it down from 25°C to -16°C. Their results show that the most instable intermediate form plays a key role in protein folding. The scientists' findings may contribute to a better understanding of how proteins adopt their structure and misfold during illness. Whether Alzheimer's, Parkinson's or Huntington's Chorea — all three diseases have one...

Science Uses X-Rays To Unlock Mystery Of Picasso Paint
2013-02-07 14:27:31

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The best way to win any decades-long debate is science, science, and more science. If, for example, you´re able to hire a team of technicians to operate a powerful X-Ray to prove your point, there´s almost no way you´ll lose. Such is the case with a long-standing debate over which type of paint Picasso used in his works. Art scholars have been arguing for many years over the theory that the cubist painter used...
