(Pensoft Publishers) A joint study conducted by scientists at the National Academy of Sciences in Belarus and Kazan Federal University in Russia, looks at the role of nitric oxide (NO) in brain tissue in simulated ischemia in rats. The study seeks to cast light on NO as a signalling molecule in a modeled ischemic and hemorrhagic insult.
(Kazan Federal University) The Cyclone ionosonde (creatied by Dr. Akchurin, Head of the Near Space Studies Lab of SAU AstroChallenge) can detect earthquakes at distances as big as 15,000 kilometers. The paper also states that earthquake signatures for mid-latitude KFU ionosonde can be up to 3 times more prominent than on a low-latitude ionosonde in Japan.
(University of Nottingham) Injecting DNA into injured horse tendons and ligaments can cure lameness, new research involving scientists at Kazan Federal University, Moscow State Academy and The University of Nottingham has found.
(Kazan Federal University) This GIS is based on a vector map of basins of small rivers. The map covers almost all of European Russia - 4 million square kilometers with about 50 thousand river basins. The project was financed by a grant of the Russian Science Foundation and took 3 years of work by 10 employees.
(Kazan Federal University) The work is a part of FANTOM and was funded by a Russian-Japanese grant provided by the Russian Science Foundation. The results were published in PLOS Biology. The third institution involved was Kumamoto University.
(Kazan Federal University) The coherent amplification of a localized optical signal within a planar titanium nitride nanoantenna has been achieved by scientists of Kazan Federal University (under the leadership of Sergey Kharintsev) and physicists from Harvard University, Nazarbayev University, and Imperial College London.

(Kazan Federal University) The results can be used to understand the nature of neurodegenerative diseases characterized by dementia.Inhibition in neuronal networks is an important part of brain functioning. The main role in these processes is played by interneurons which use gamma-aminobutyric acid as a neurotransmitter.

(Kazan Federal University) Scientists at Kazan Federal University's Institute of Fundamental Medicine and Biology, led by Professor Albert Rizvanov, have shown that artificial membrane vesicles generated by cytochalasin B treatment of human cells retain angiogenic activity.
(Kazan Federal University) The method is based on ground laser scanning and remote sensing or Earth.
(Kazan Federal University) The project titled 'Development of new contrast agents for MRT based on nanosized rare earth fluorides' is headed by Senior Research Associate of the Institute of Physics Yegor Alakshin. The work will also involve employees of the Magnetic Radio Spectroscopy and Quantum Electronics Lab Yekaterina Kondratyeva and Darya Nuzhina.
(Kazan Federal University) The team studies soil decontamination by microorganisms.
(Kazan Federal University) The project's full title is 'Quantum computing based on magnetic resonance control of electron and electron-nucleus states of extrinsic paramagnetic centers in crystals,' It will now receive five million rubles annually in the next three years.
(Kazan Federal University) In the last 20 years several thousand exoplanets have been found orbiting solar-type stars, but only about a hundred around giant stars. Most of them are 10 to 20 times heavier than Jupiter, and only about 15 planets are close to Jupiter in mass. This is the first time in Russian astronomy when a planet was discovered with spectroscopic methods.
(Kazan Federal University) The technology in question is aimed at storing various produce and materials based on anhydrobiosis -- in this case present in Polypedilum vanderplanki, a buzzer species found in Nigeria.
Researchers of the KFU Omics Lab have succeeded in deciphering a Phi29-family virus genome. Junior researcher Raihan Shah Mahmud of Kazan Federal University says, "There is an immense number of viruses in nature, hundreds of times more than bacteria. Show More Summary
