Nanozymes will help diagnose hormones and blood diseases
2024-01-05 20:23 Scientists have developed special nanoparticles — nanosimes. They are used in molecular biological analyses as a label - they can be used to tint colorless substrates (antibodies, antigens, hormones) during diagnosis. Unlike natural analogues, nanosimes have high signal stability and are also relatively cheap. Scientists note that the use of nanosimes in the future will help reduce the prices of various med...
Upper Paleolithic people prepared paint using boiling
2023-12-29 19:38 Archaeologists have determined that the ancient people who lived in the Mezmai cave in the North Caucasus used multicomponent paints 31 thousand years ago. They consisted of bitumen and white and red clay with a protein binder based on gelatin glue. To get such glue, people boiled the skin or bones of animals. To date, this is the oldest evidence of boiling in history. The results of the study, supported by...
Protein allows poison dart frogs to accumulate toxins safely
2023-12-22 14:23 Scientists have identified the protein that helps poison dart frogs safely accumulate their namesake toxins, according to a study published today in eLife. The findings solve a long-standing scientific mystery and may suggest potential therapeutic strategies for treating humans poisoned with similar molecules. Alkaloid compounds, such as caffeine, make coffee, tea and chocolate delicious and pleasant to c...
Nanoparticles for the treatment and diagnosis of cancer have been developed by MIPT scientists
2023-12-15 20:23 Scientists at the Institute of Biophysics of the Future of MIPT have developed a universal nanoplatform for the treatment and diagnosis of cancer — targosomes. These are targeted nanocarriers based on a copolymer of lactic and glycolic acids for the diagnosis and chemophototherapy of highly aggressive HER2 overexpressing tumors. The nanoparticles have passed laboratory tests on animals and have shown an eff...
The reason for the variability of the deep currents of the World Ocean is revealed
2023-12-08 18:45 Scientists from the P.P. Shirshov Institute of Oceanology of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Marine Hydrophysical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences and MIPT have discovered a new mechanism for the variability of Antarctic water circulation in the depressions of the World Ocean and have shown that even small vortices on the surface can change, and in some cases even stop, bottom currents at a...
The world's first complete virtual reconstruction of a pliosaur skeleton was created in Russia
2023-12-01 18:35 The fossil pliosaurus Luskhan itilensis, originally from the Cretaceous period, whose skeleton was discovered in 2002 on the banks of the Volga River in the Ulyanovsk region, has become one of the most well-studied pliosaurs in the world and the only one with a complete virtual reconstruction. A detailed description of the ancient sea lizard was presented by a group of scientists from Russia, Great Britain ...
Artificial cells with a minimal genome quickly adapted in the process of evolution
2023-11-24 17:52 American and Brazilian researchers presented the results of observations of the evolution of cells with artificially synthesized minimal genome. Over two thousand generations, they have regained their adaptability to external conditions, but have not been able to increase in size. In 2010, the staff of the Institute of J. Craig Venter received the first cell with a completely artificial genome. To do this,...
