The lipid-exchanged, anatomically rigid, imaging/immunostaining compatible, tissue hydrogel (CLARITY) method was initially designed in 2013 by Chung and Deisseroth at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Using this process, post-mortem organs can be labeled for proteins and nucleic acids, enabling analysis of intact samples to create detailed 3D images.
The surging popularity of beneficial fermented foods like kombucha and yogurt is being met with a patchwork of regulations worldwide, according to a recent review.
The use of machine learning to do blood cell counts for illness detection rather than costly and often less reliable cell analyzer devices has proven labor-intensive, as the training of the machine learning model requires a tremendous amount of manual annotation activity by humans.
Proteins are among the most significant and diverse biomolecules found in living organisms. These strings of amino acids, which take on complex 3-dimensional structures, are required for tissue growth and maintenance, the activation of thousands of biochemical events, and the immune system’s defense against invaders.
Bile acids made by the liver have long been known for their critical role in helping to absorb the food we ingest.
Citrus is a significant and economically beneficial horticultural crop with nucellar polyembryony, which prevents hybrid offspring from being produced. Citrus is produced mostly through asexual methods like grafting and cuttings.
In the first study of its kind to explore caffeine's effects on dynamic visual skills, researchers concluded that caffeine increases alertness and detection accuracy for moving targets. Caffeine also improved participants' reaction times.
A new analysis adds to evidence that nutritious diets are often more environmentally sustainable, while also demonstrating the feasibility of evaluating diet sustainability at the scale of specific foods-;rather than broader food-group categories.
In the late 1600s, the Dutch tradesman Anthoni van Leeuwenhoek began investigating the world of the very small using the first microscope, discovering a riotous world of protists, bacteria, and other previously unseen organisms.
A group of scientists identified that a prevailing drug for treating constipation might boost an individual’s capability to think with better clarity.
Researchers discovered evidence that CTCF governs chromatin accessibility, the mechanism of opening tightly spooled DNA facilitating gene expression.
We are collectively failing to conserve the world's biodiversity and to mobilize natural solutions to help curb global warming. A new study carried out by the Nature Map Consortium, shows that managing a strategically placed 30% of land for conservation could safeguard 70% of all considered terrestrial plant and vertebrate animal species, while simultaneously conserving more than 62% of the world's above and below ground vulnerable carbon, and 68% of all clean water.
A new study achieved the highest-ever resolution imaging of an infectious prion, offering atomic-level data of how these abnormal proteins assemble.
Chemokines are small proteins that adhere to these chemokine receptors and regulate the behavior and movement of white blood cells.
The gold standard in functional brain imaging for over two decades, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has transformed the landscape of research and clinical care. Yet, because of its cost and functional limitations, scientists have continued to look for new ways to see into the human brain.
AZoLifeSciences interviews Francesco Branca, director of the Department of Nutrition and Food Safety at the World Health Organization, for World Food Safety Day 2021.
Due to modern agriculture, biodiversity across many species groups is in decline. Over the last three decades, attempts have been made to counteract this with agri-environmental schemes at various levels - from the national federal state to EU-wide programmes.
Researchers have designed a new groundbreaking method that could transform the clarity, precision, and accuracy of super-resolution imaging systems.
NASA-funded research on the 11 largest freshwater lakes in the world coupled field and satellite observations to provide a new understanding of how large bodies of water fix carbon, as well as how a changing climate and lakes interact.
Thanks to modern medicine, humans tend to live much longer than before. Unfortunately, this also opens a wider window to develop chronic diseases with late-onset, such as neurodegenerative diseases.
For decades, scientists have been warning about potential future effects of global climate change, including more frequent wildfires, longer periods of drought, and sharp increases in the number, duration, and intensity of tropical storms.
