Bacteria all aglow: Fluorescent carboxysomes

Date: Apr 1, 2016

Author: David Bradley

Fluorescent studies have revealed how cyanobacteria use internal molecular machines known as carboxysomes to boost their ability to convert carbon dioxide into sugar during photosynthesis. The insight couldbe exploited in nanotechnology and biomass production.

Journal Highlight: In vivo fluorescence correlation spectroscopy analyses of FMBP-1, a silkworm transcription factor

Date: Mar 7, 2016

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy has been used to analyze the diffusion properties of an enhanced green fluorescent protein-tagged FMBP-1 protein expressed in posterior silk gland cells of Bombyx mori at the same developmental stage as natural FMBP-1 expression.

Reflecting on the prostate: Cancer margins

Date: Mar 1, 2016

Author: David Bradley

Light reflectance spectroscopy can be used to differentiate between malignant and benign prostatic tissue with 85 percent accuracy, according to US researchers. The finding might be used in real-time tissue analysis to guide the surgeon during prostate cancer.

Antarctic fungi on the ISS: Mimicking Martian UV

Date: Feb 1, 2016

Author: David Bradley

Microscopic fungi from Antarctica can survive exposure to radiation at levels known to exist on Mars, according to research carried out on the International Space Station, ISS, with almost two-thirds of cells remaining intact after eighteen months.

Journal Highlight: Effects of fungal species, cultivation time, growth substrate, and air exposure velocity on the fluorescence properties of airborne fungal spores

Date: Dec 7, 2015

Author: spectroscopyNOW

The major factors that affect the fluorescence properties of airborne fungal spores of three species have been studied using fluorescence-based bioaerosol detectors, the results being useful for field measurements and lab studies.

Male or female: Gender fingerprinting

Date: Dec 1, 2015

Author: David Bradley

US researchers have taken another step forward to make it easier for law enforcement to catch criminals from fingerprints. Building on an earlier tests that distinguish between blood samples from people of Caucasian and African-American ethnicity and males and females, the team has now demonstrated that they can tell whether a fingerprint belonged to a man or a woman using an optical technique.
