Scientists Find a Way to Control Human DNA with Electricity

Monika Sachan In a breakthrough study published in the journal Nature Metabolism, scientists from ETH Zürich have demonstrated that human DNA can be controlled with electricity. The researchers developed a new technology called “direct current (DC)-actuated regulation technology” (DART), which uses electrical currents to activate specific genes. In their experiments, the researchers were able to […]

Decoding Cancer: Understanding Causes, Symptoms, and Prevention Strategies

Cancer is a complex disease that occurs when the normal mechanisms that regulate the growth and division of cells in the body become disrupted. Normally, cells divide and grow in an orderly and controlled manner, but in cancer, these cells grow and divide uncontrollably, forming a mass of abnormal cells called a tumor. There are […]

Transmission of visual information from the eyes to the thalamus is regulated by serotonin

Monika Sachan Understanding the basics behind new discovery: Researchers have discovered that serotonin, a neurotransmitter commonly associated with mood regulation, also plays a crucial role in visual processing in the thalamus of the brain. The thalamus is a key relay station that filters sensory information before it reaches the cortex, which is responsible for higher-level […]

Tardigrade Proteins Unlock Human Health Breakthrough, UW Scientists Discover

In a study published in Scientific Reports, Thomas Boothby, an assistant professor of molecular biology, and his team have demonstrated that tardigrade proteins, both natural and engineered, can stabilize a critical pharmaceutical used to treat hemophilia and other medical conditions without the requirement of refrigeration, even in extreme temperatures. Researchers at the University of Wyoming […]

Protein Folding: The Secret to Understanding Protein Structure and Function

Monika Sachan Proteins are fundamental building blocks of life, responsible for a wide range of biological functions. They are involved in catalyzing chemical reactions, transmitting signals between cells, and providing structural support for cells and tissues. However, in order to perform these functions, proteins must first assume a specific three-dimensional shape or conformation, known as […]

ORIGIN: Descendents of DNA-RNA

Crispr DNA Editor

Recently research reinforced the backbone of a theory, preliminary stating that life on earth was created by RNA-DNA mix. The astounding chemistry research published in the journal Angewandte Chemie, illustrated the fact that a simple compound called diamidophosphate (DAP), which existed credibly on Earth before life arose, might have chemically structured together into tiny DNA building blocks […]

Know Where The ‘Brain-Eating’ Amoeba Is Found, How It Enters The Brain, Symptoms

While the US remains a country severely affected by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, a new deadly disease has begun to spread its footing there. Novel Coronavirus cases are continuously growing in the US, meanwhile, the spread of this new disease has increased the concern of scientists, doctors, etc.  It is a microbe that […]

Proteins And Chromatophores

By Suprava Priyadarshani Introduction: Proteins Proteins are large biomolecules, or macromolecules, consisting of one or more long chains of amino acid residues. Proteins perform a vast array of functions within organisms, including catalyzing metabolic reactions, DNA replication, responding to stimuli, providing structure to cells and organisms, and transporting molecules from one location to another. Proteins […]
