Crowdsourcing drug discovery: Antitumour compound identified

Date: Jan 1, 2014

Author: David Bradley

American researchers have used "crowdsourcing" - the cooperation of a large number of interested  non-scientists via the internet - to help them identify a new fungus. The species contains unusual metabolites, isolated and characterized, with the help of vibrational circular dichroism (VCD). One compound reveals itself to have potential antitumour activity.

Journal Highlight: Measurement of brain activation during an upright stepping reaction task using functional near-infrared spectroscopy

Date: Dec 2, 2013

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Functional near-infrared spectroscopy was used to measure changes in brain activation from the frontal, motor, and premotor brain regions during an upright step task.

Cooking up cocoa: Ammonia analysis

Date: Dec 1, 2013

Author: David Bradley

The potent aroma precursors that give cocoa its distinctive smell and flavour are due to fermentation processes. As such quality control relies on the use of analytical techniques to monitor progress. Researchers in France have now developed a near infrared spectroscopic method that is fast and efficient.

Journal Highlight: Quantification of DNA in simple eukaryotic cells using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy

Date: Nov 4, 2013

Author: spectroscopyNOW

DNA/hemoglobin standards have been used to successfully estimate the DNA content in avian erythrocyte nuclei and intact erythrocytes by FTIR spectroscopy.

Far, far away: A galaxy

Date: Nov 1, 2013

Author: David Bradley

Near infra-red has revealed the presence of the most distant galaxy to US astronomers. The light from the galaxy set off on its outward journey a mere 700 million years after the Big Bang, when the universe was just 5 percent of its current age of approximately 13.8 billion years.

Fat: It's an infrared issue

Date: Oct 1, 2013

Author: David Bradley

A near-infrared fluorescence imaging probe that binds to brown adipose vasculature and emits skin-penetrating fluorescence that can be picked up from the outside by a highly sensitive camera can be used to distinguish between "good" and "bad" adipose (fat) tissue.

Journal Highlight: Optimization of lipid production for algal biodiesel in nitrogen stressed cells of Dunaliella salina using FTIR analysis

Date: Sep 30, 2013

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A study of the rates of growth and lipid accumulation in Dunaliella salina showed that the trade-off between lipid content, growth rate and cell density needs to be considered for optimisation of lipid productivity for biodiesel.

Journal Highlight: Simultaneously probing two ultrafast condensed-phase molecular symmetry breaking events by two-dimensional infrared spectroscopy

Date: Sep 2, 2013

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Direct evidence is presented for two types of solvent-mediated symmetry-breaking events that coexist on the picosecond timescale in a highly symmetric anion in a condensed phase, using 2D IR spectroscopy.

Pale blue dot: Poring over IR data

Date: Sep 1, 2013

Author: David Bradley

In the wake of the NASA Cassini mission turning its cameras towards Earth instead of its usually target the planet Saturn, its rings and moons, astronomers are now analyzing an abundance of infrared and ultraviolet data from the images.
