Scientists talked about new ways to combat neurodegenerative diseases
2023-09-29 17:37 Scientists analyzed studies on neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, Huntington's and dementia with Levi's corpuscles, and found out what an important role three proteins of the PIDDOSOME complex play in them, triggering the process of programmed cell death. Thus, mutations in two of them — PIDD1 and RAIDD — lead to abnormalities in brain development, and an excess of the third — caspa...
Archaeologists discover world’s oldest wooden structure
2023-09-22 19:39 Half a million years ago, earlier than was previously thought possible, humans were building structures made of wood, according to new research by a team from the University of Liverpool and Aberystwyth University. The research, published in the journal Nature, reports on the excavation of well-preserved wood at the archaeological site of Kalambo Falls, Zambia, dating back at least 476,000 years and predat...
Long-moustached short-moustaches: a transitional form between mosquitoes and flies was found in the Triassic
2023-09-15 11:38 The order Diptera includes, as the name implies, insects with only one pair of wings. The body structure of diptera can be reduced to two main types: mosquitoes with multi-lobed antennae and flies with three-lobed antennae. This difference was noticed a long time ago: diptera were divided into long-whiskered Nematocera and short-whiskered Brachycera in the first half of the XIX century. But as often happens...
3D-Printed ‘Living Material’ Could Clean Up Contaminated Water
2023-09-08 18:58 Researchers at the University of California San Diego have developed a new type of material that could offer a sustainable and eco-friendly solution to clean pollutants from water. Dubbed an “engineered living material,” it is a 3D-printed structure made of a seaweed-based polymer combined with bacteria that have been genetically engineered to produce an enzyme that transforms various organic pollutants in...
UNESCO World Heritage Sites often ‘last line of defence against extinction’
2023-09-01 10:55 Some of the world’s most iconic natural and cultural sites are also a haven for thousands of endangered species, the UN Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) said on Thursday.  Although properties protected under the World Heritage Convention make up less than one per cent of the Earth’s surface, they harbour more than 20 per cent of the planet’s biodiversity, new research by UNESCO and...

Scientists have found the oldest bivalve mollusk of the genus Pinna
2023-08-18 19:51 MSU paleontologists reported the discovery of the oldest bivalve mollusk of the genus Pinna. The find comes from the deposits of the Early Permian reef of Shakhtau on the territory of Bashkiria. Information about the discovery was published in the Paleontological Journal. The Pinnidae Leach family includes some of the largest heteromiare bivalves. The first representatives of this family appeared in the ea...
