Nanodiscs catch misfolding proteins red-handed

Science News - 2 hours 42 min ago
When proteins misfold, accumulate and clump around insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, they kill cells. Now, researchers have obtained a structural snapshot of these proteins when they are most toxic, detailing them down to the atomic level.

What does hair loss have to teach us about cancer metastasis?

Science News - 2 hours 42 min ago
Researchers have identified a signaling pathway regulating cell migration and metastasis. Unexpected hair loss in a preclinical model helped them to identify the pathway. When cells within the skin that maintain hair follicles migrate too often, hair follicle maintenance is disrupted. Researchers speculated that this pathway might also play a role in cancer cell migration. Indeed, they showed that disrupting this pathway in preclinical models increased metastasis.

3-D nanoscale imaging made possible

Science News - 5 hours 17 min ago
Imaging at the nanoscale is important to a plethora of modern applications in materials science, physics, biology, medicine and other fields. Limitations of current techniques are, e.g. their resolution, imaging speed or the inability to look behind opaque objects with arbitrary shapes. Scientists have now demonstrated a method for meeting this challenge with stunning properties.

Exposure to larger air particles linked to increased risk of asthma in children

Science News - 5 hours 41 min ago
Researchers report statistical evidence that children exposed to airborne coarse particulate matter — a mix of dust, sand and non-exhaust tailpipe emissions, such as tire rubber — are more likely to develop asthma and need emergency room or hospital treatment for it than unexposed children.
