Researchers Observe How Cells Protect Themselves from Viruses

Researchers Observe How Cells Protect Themselves from Viruses A protein known to assist cells in protecting against infection regulates the form and function of mitochondria, based on a recent paper in Nature Communications. The protein, one of a group called myxovirus-resistance (Mx) proteins, help cells fight infections without the usage of systemic antibodies or white blood cells. The authors

ATLAS Experiment’s Quest for Supersymmetry Reaches New Level of Sensitivity

ATLAS Experiment’s Quest for Supersymmetry Reaches New Level of Sensitivity In new outcomes presented at CERN, the ATLAS Experiment’s search for supersymmetry reached new levels of sensitivity. The outcomes review a popular supersymmetry extension studied at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC): the “Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model” (MSSM), which includes the minimum needed number of new

Researchers Bet in Microwaves to Power New Battery Technologies

Researchers Bet in Microwaves to Power New Battery Technologies BY CARLY ARTIS ON APRIL 22, 2020 New battery expertise involving microwaves may provide an avenue for renewable energy conversion and storage. Purdue University researchers created a technique to turn waste polyethylene terephthalate, one of the most recyclable polymers, into components of batteries. The Purdue team

Cardiff Uni Scientists Now Find Way to Foretell Size of Plastics Animals Can Ingest

Cardiff Uni Scientists Now Find Way to Foretell Size of Plastics Animals Can Ingest A group of scientists at Cardiff University has, for the first time, found a way of predicting the size of plastics several animals can ingest. The scientists, from the University’s Water Research Institute, appeared at the gut contents of over 2,000
