When cells from the connective tissue collide, they repel one another -- this phenomenon was discovered more than 50 years ago. It is only now, however, that researchers have discovered the molecular basis for this process. Their findings could have important implications for cancer research.

Proteins remain after starch is extracted from rice. Until now, this valuable raw material was disposed of by rice starch producers at great expense. A new process is being developed to split proteins into smaller pieces, or peptides, and then clean them. The peptides can be put to good use in…

Metabolites are small molecules, such as sugars, fatty acids and amino acids that, among other things, serve as sources of energy in the cells and as building materials for cell walls. For researchers they are, as it were, traces of the functioning and status of cells. Now researchers have created…

Researchers have developed a smart walker prototype that supports independent living among the elderly by making the traditional walker smart. They have retrofitted it with sensors and digital software that analyze user's physical condition and daily activities. This allows the device to collect…

Infrared thermography can help detect joint inflammation and help improving work ergonomics, according to a recent study. All objects with a temperature above absolute zero emit infrared radiation as a result of the thermal motion of their molecules. Infrared thermography (IRT) is an imaging…

Doctors have successfully reduced risk-taking behavior in teenagers and young people, in a world-first trial, say authors of a new report. The researchers recommend trainee doctors should be taught how to have difficult conversations with young people, and are currently working on an online…

Scientists have discovered that reactivation of ancient viral genes embedded in the human genome may cause the destruction of neurons in some forms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The results suggest a link between human endogenous retroviral genes (HERVs) and ALS and raise the question of…

Variations in DNA at a specific location (or 'locus') on the genome that protect African children from developing severe malaria, in some cases nearly halving a child's chance of developing the life-threatening disease, have been identified in the largest genetic association study of malaria to…

Though research carried out over the past 30 years has helped to understand most of HIV virus biology, its infectious process still contains grey areas. One of these has to do with the exact role played by Nef, an HIV accessorye protein, during infection. Researchers have deciphered an important…

Missing a gene may be less problematic than you'd think. This is one of the conclusions that emerge from the most extensive catalog of changes in large sections of a person's DNA sequence to date. This reference catalog of structural variations across the globe will help guide future studies of…

Increasing calcium intake through dietary sources or supplements is unlikely to improve bone health or prevent fractures in older people, conclude two studies. Collectively, these results suggest that increasing calcium intake, through supplements or dietary sources, should not be recommended for…

The experimental drugs target brain cells' ability to respond to the chemical messenger glutamate, however, it has been unclear how they work. The recent discovery of a molecular amplification system helps explain how the drugs achieve an antidepressant effect by altering signaling in particular…
