There's an interesting report from the Buchwald group using the Fujita "molecular sponge" crystallography technique. The last report on this was a correction, amid reports that the method was not as widely applicable as had been hoped,...Show More Summary
Springing clocks forward by an hour this Sunday is one example of an activity that can disrupt our daily rhythms. NIH-funded researchers are piecing together the molecular mechanisms of our biological clocks to better understand the intricate relationship among these clocks, daily rhythms and physiology.
By Grant Zeng: Rosetta Genomics (ROSG) is an Israel-based molecular diagnostic company focused on developing and commercializing molecular diagnostics for cancers. Rosetta's diagnostic business is based on its unique and proprietary microRNA (miRNA) platform technology. Show More Summary
A method called molecular subtyping can help doctors better determine which of their breast cancer patients are at high risk of getting breast cancer again, a new study led by the University of South Florida reports.
Writing in the journal Molecular Cell, a team led by Mikhail Nikiforov, PhD, has identified a previously unrecognized feed-forward mechanism of reactive-oxygen-species regulation.
The results, published in The New England Journal of Medicine and Human and Molecular Genetics journals, demonstrate for the first time that mutation in STAG3 gene is the major cause of human fertility disorders as it provokes a loss of function of the protein it encodes. read more

ITHACA, N.Y. – Like mobsters following strict orders, newly engineered molecules called "ubiquibodies" can mark specific proteins inside a cell for destruction – a molecular kiss of death that is paving the way for new drug therapies and powerful research tools. read more
Is it possible to improve tolerance of trees to high temperatures and other types of stress derived of climate change? Scientists are studying the tolerance of trees using molecular and biotechnological tools. Biologists succeeding in making popular trees significantly more tolerant to high temperatures, drought, and the presence of weed-killers.
Cold-water corals (CWCs) are thought to be particularly vulnerable to ocean acidification (OA) due to increased atmospheric pCO2, because they inhabit deep and cold waters where the aragonite saturation state is naturally low. Several...Show More Summary
In collaboration with colleagues from Berlin and Madrid, researchers at the Department of Physics at the University of Basel have pulled up isolated molecular chains from a gold surface, using the tip of an atomic force microscope (AFM). Show More Summary
In a study that began in a pair of infant siblings with a rare heart defect, Johns Hopkins researchers say they have identified a key molecular switch that regulates heart cell division and normally turns the process off around the time of birth. Show More Summary
Tau proteins, which are responsible for Alzheimer's disease, bind to the folding protein Hsp90. The molecular recognition mechanisms that play a role here, have been unveiled by an international team of scientists led by the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) and the Helmholtz Zentrum Muenchen.

Investigators studying chronic kidney disease have uncovered abnormal molecular signaling pathways from disease initiation to irreversible kidney damage, kidney failure, and death. Their results point to new drug targets for the disease.
Sponsored Post: RainDance Technologies, Inc., an innovative genomics tools company making molecular testing of complex diseases more standardized and readily available, today announced that it has closed a $16.5 million Series E financing round extension....
In the cells of humans and other organisms, only a subset of genes are active at any given time, depending largely on the stage of life and the particular duties of the cell. Cells use different molecular mechanisms to orchestrate the activation and deactivation of genes as needed. Show More Summary
An international team of researchers has used the world's most powerful X-ray laser to take snapshots of free molecules. The research team choreographed a kind of molecular ballet in the X-ray beam. The conventional way to determine the atomic structure of molecules is to "freeze" them in a crystal and illuminate them with bright X-rays. Show More Summary
Tau proteins, which are responsible for Alzheimer's disease, bind to the folding protein HSP90. The molecular recognition mechanisms that play a role here have been unveiled by an international team of scientists, and may open the door...Show More Summary
Scientists have developed a new method of real-time identification and quantification of molecular species. How to retrieve greenhouse gas concentrations in earth atmosphere or to test fundamental laws of quantum mechanics? By measuring the spectrum of light interacting with matter, i.e. Show More Summary
Hooray Portlandia is back: On last night's season four premiere, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein refuse to pay for parking in downtown Portland, OR so they park in a 15-minute only zone. They race around trying to get their...
