Did we just find an off switch for inflammation?

Scientists have discovered a new metabolic process in the body that can switch off inflammation. They have discovered that ‘itaconate’ – a molecule derived from glucose – acts as a powerful off-switch for macrophages, which are the cells in the immune system that lie at the heart of many inflammatory diseases including arthritis, inflammatory bowel

New test for rapid identification of proteins involved in the development of a number of diseases including Alzheimer’s

A simple methodology for capturing proteins implicated in the development of Alzheimer’s disease and other conditions has been developed by researchers at the University of Bradford and University of Dundee. The new methodology involves easily trapping proteins that bear a specific modification that can provide potential markers for conditions. The specific modification is based on

A major breakthrough in targeting the causes of many diseases – proteins

Scientists at the University of Dundee have reported a major breakthrough in targeting the causes of many diseases, using a `kiss of death’ to destroy proteins which had previously been regarded as `undruggable’. Much is known about proteins such as Ras and Myc which are known to be culpable in human cancer, and Huntingtin, which

Immune system ‘on switch’ breakthrough could lead to new targeted drugs

A crucial ‘on switch’ that boosts the body’s defences against infections has been successfully identified in new scientific research. The breakthrough made by researchers at the University of Aberdeen and the University of Dundee could lead to the development of new drugs to enhance the body’s immune responses to attack, which could benefit people suffering

Pesticides alter bees’ brains, making them unable to live and reproduce adequately

New research in The FASEB Journal suggests that the neonicotinoid class of pesticides do not kill bees but impair their brain function to disturb learning, blunt food gathering skills and harm reproduction In research report published in the May 2015 issue of The FASEB Journal, scientists report that a particular class of pesticides called “neonicotinoids”

Acousto-optics enables ultra-fast steering and shaping of light beams

“The number of applications of this new technology is vast.” A team of engineers has developed a new acousto-optic device that can shape and steer beams of light at speeds never before achieved. The new technology will enable better optical devices to be made, such as holographs that can move rapidly in real time. The

Software to automatically outline bones in x-rays

Research into disorders such as arthritis is to be helped by new software developed at the University of Manchester which automatically outlines bones – saving thousands of hours of manual work. Amidst a national shortage of radiographers in the UK and an increasing requirement for researchers to work with large databases of radiograph images, the

New possibilities for efficient biofuel production

Limited availability of fossil fuels stimulates the search for different energy resources. The use of biofuels is one of the alternatives. Sugars derived from the grain of agricultural crops can be used to produce biofuel but these crops occupy fertile soils needed for food and feed production. Fast growing plants such as poplar, eucalyptus, or
