Delving into the pump mechanism mystery

07 April, 2006

Researchers at the Institute of Biotechnology of the University of Helsinki have identified an internal electron transfer reaction that initiates the proton pump mechanism of the respiratory enzyme.

Stem cells used to make new tendons

06 April, 2006

Weekend athletes who overexert themselves running or playing basketball may one day reap the benefits of research at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem that shows that adult stem cells can be used to make new tendon or ligament tissue.

Nanoparticles good for biomedical applications

04 April, 2006

Nanoparticles of gold can act as tiny, precise and powerful heaters, which potentially could be used in biomedical applications, according to a new study.

Critical gene for immune cell activation found

04 April, 2006

Every time the human body encounters a virus, bacteria or other infectious agent, immune cells called B-lymphocytes multiply in lymph nodes and then swing into action to fight off the intruders.

Aussies helping the fight against bird flu

21 March, 2006

CSIRO scientists have boosted efforts to help stop the spread of bird flu in Asia and thereby reduce the risk of it reaching Australia.
