As we’re all aware, weed makes us a bit forgetful. Say what? But a regular toke can also leave you more prone to remembering stuff that didn’t actually happen, according to new research published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry. Read more...
Scientists have used molecular "scissors" to eliminate mitochondrial mutations in eggs and embryos. They are now investigating the possibility of translating this technology to the clinic in human eggs and embryos.
Assessing the veracity of Precambrian ‘sponge’ fossils using in situ nanoscale analytical techniquesAuthors:Muscente et alAbstract:Paleontological inferences, molecular clocks, and biomarker fossils indicate sponges evolved in the Cryogenian, but Precambrian sponge fossils are rare, poorly substantiated, and controversial.

A new way to determine 3-D structures from 2-D images is set to speed up protein structure discovery by a factor of 100,000. One of the great challenges in molecular biology is to determine the three-dimensional structure of large biomolecules such as proteins. But this is a famously difficult and time-consuming task.
Human DNA accumulates damage over time, and older people's bodies can't repair it as well. Many scientists believe a build up of damage can cause cells to enter an irreversible dormant state known as senescence. Cellular senescence is...Show More Summary
The Journal of Molecular Psychiatry published an article that reveals smokers of marijuana are prone to ‘false memories’, according to a study completed from the Neuropsychopharmacology group located at the Biomedical Research Institute within the Hospital de Sant Pau and from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

"We are creatures controlled by viruses," Luis Villarreal, a professor of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry at the University of California at Irvine, tells
Using an ultra bright X-ray source, scientists have decoded the molecular and three-dimensional structure of two promising drug candidates from the new group of Spiegelmers for the first time. The results provide a deeper understanding of the mode of action of these substances that have already entered clinical trials.
Researchers have discovered that a protein which controls anxiety in humans has the same molecular ancestor as one which causes insects to molt when they outgrow their skins. Studies on sea urchins provided the missing link because they have a protein with elements common to those in both humans and insects and reveal a common ancestry hundreds of millions of years ago.
In general, the article supports the notion that this type of diagnostic testing in and of itself allows for earlier diagnosis, faster and more targeted treatment, reduced costs, and increased quality of life and even increased lifespan for the patient.
In a laboratory in New York City, molecular biologist Roy Buchanan is finishing up at the bench for the day. It is eight o’clock in the evening, and while late night work is a familiar scenario for most scientists, the presence of Buchanan’s two young sons playing a game in the common area outside the lab is not.

The display cover on the Apple Watch Sport is made from aluminosilicate glass. Marketed as Ion-X, Apple describes it as being “fortified at the molecular level through ion exchange, with smaller ions being replaced by larger ones toShow More Summary
Scientists explain skin fusion at a molecular level, and pinpoint the specific molecules that do the job. "In order to visualize this orchestra of healing, a very high-resolution picture of the process is needed. For this purpose we have recorded an enormous amount of data that surpasses all previous studies of this kind," says one researcher.
Physicists have used a new quantum model to reveal the molecular structure of water's liquid surface.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center have discovered a molecular mechanism that connects breast tissue stiffness to tumor metastasis and poor prognosis. The study may inspire new approaches to predicting patient outcomes and halting tumor metastasis.
KU Cancer Center researcher is using genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic data to determine cancer molecular subtypes.
Sometimes we take the benefits of modern medicine for granted, but a small dose of data and history can easily remedy that. The chart below, created by Valentine Svensson, a PhD student in molecular biology at Cambridge University, shows the dramatic decline in the incidence of measles in 20th century America. You can see that […]
Leaders of an ongoing pancreatic cancer clinical trial known as the Individualized Molecular Pancreatic Cancer Therapy or 'IMPaCT' trial, have been learning ways to bring about about a new paradigm of personalized cancer care for pancreatic cancer and other aggressive cancer types.
