Plants reprogram their cells to fight diseases
2022-09-02 14:19 Crops and other plants are often attacked by bacteria, viruses and other pathogens. Unlike animals, plants do not have specialized immune cells that can be delivered through the bloodstream to the site of infection. Therefore, each cell of the plant should be able to protect itself by quickly switching to "combat mode". When plants are attacked, they switch their priorities from growth to defense, so cells...
The oldest farmers were formed from three ancestral populations
2022-08-26 10:51 Paleogeneticists have found that the origin of the populations of Western Asia of the Pre-Ceramic Neolithic era can be modeled from three ancestral groups: Epipaleolithic inhabitants of Anatolia, representatives of the Natufian culture and hunter-gatherers from the Caucasus or Iran. They also found out that the pre-Ceramic Neolithic in Anatolia is probably associated with a population that arose from the mi...
Scientists have developed a new safe source of hydrogenated acid
2022-08-19 09:22 Russian scientists have proposed a method for the synthesis of a new, stable and non–explosive source of hydrogenated acid - 4-(dimethylamino)pyridinium azide. This compound can be obtained in multigram quantities and used for the synthesis of physiologically active substances used in the treatment of a variety of diseases: from cancer and AIDS to insomnia. Specialists of the N.D. Zelinsky Institute of Org...
Plesiosaur fossils found in the Sahara suggest they weren’t just marine animals
2022-08-12 09:58 Fossils of small plesiosaurs, long-necked marine reptiles from the age of dinosaurs, have been found in a 100-million year old river system that is now Morocco’s Sahara Desert. This discovery suggests some species of plesiosaur, traditionally thought to be sea creatures, may have lived in freshwater. Plesiosaurs, first found in 1823 by fossil hunter Mary Anning, were prehistoric reptiles with small heads, ...
UN General Assembly declares access to clean and healthy environment a universal human right
2022-08-05 18:26 With 161 votes in favour, and eight abstentions*, the UN General Assembly adopted a historic resolution on Thursday, declaring access to a clean, healthy and sustainable environment, a universal human right. The resolution, based on a similar text adopted last year by the Human Rights Council, calls upon States, international organisations, and business enterprises to scale up efforts to ensure a healthy e...

Russian physicists demonstrate inexpensive synthesis of high-melting-point carbide materials
2022-07-22 18:40 Researchers from Skoltech and Tomsk Polytechnic University have used an unusual technique from the aerospace industry to synthesize hafnium-tantalum carbide, a hard-to-melt material for coating electrical and mechanical components that operate under extreme conditions. Inexpensive and effective, their plasma dynamic method can produce high-quality carbide both as powders and as coatings on diverse substrate...
