Measure by measure: X-rays show viral transformation

Date: Feb 1, 2017

Author: David Bradley

A new insight into how viruses replicated based on X-ray crystallography work by a team at Thomas Jefferson University could ultimately lead to new antiviral drugs to treat pathogenic DNA viruses.

Multi-component medicine made manageable by mass spectrometry

Date: Feb 1, 2017

Author: Ryan De Vooght-Johnson

The Chinese medicine Deng-Zhan-Sheng-Mai, used to treat stroke patients, consists of a mixture of four different herbal extracts, each containing a wide variety of compounds, thus giving a huge headache to analysts. Researchers from Fudan University, Shanghai and China Pharmaceutical University, Nanjing used LC-MS, along with chemometric methods, such as hierarchical cluster analysis, principal component analysis and bivariate correlation analysis, to bring order to the chaos, recommending that nine...

Three-faced star: Exoplanets in the infrared

Date: Feb 1, 2017

Author: David Bradley

The star HR 8799 has planets, hot planets far bigger than Jupiter and Saturn that swing around it in vast orbits. NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope first sighted the system with its vast circumstellar disc.Now, scientists have animated the observations to show us for the first time planets orbiting in and alien solar system.

Natural sunscreen: Blooming algae protect sunbathers

Date: Feb 1, 2017

Author: David Bradley

Ultraviolet screening agents derived from algal natural products that protect the marine microbes from the sun can boost the sun protection factor of skin creams used by sunbathers by a factor of more than two according to Spanish researchers.

Baby MRI: Miniaturised system

Date: Feb 1, 2017

Author: David Bradley

A miniature magnetic resonance imaging machine that could be used to scan babies has undergone tests at The Jessop Wing Maternity Hospital in Sheffield, UK. The scanner is one of only two in the world and provides much more detailed clinical information than any crib-side ultrasound scan for more precise diagnostics. It also benefits from being more mobile than a standard machines and so does not require the patient to be moved too far for their scan.

Raman sex test: Saliva samples

Date: Feb 1, 2017

Author: David Bradley

A portable Raman scanner can analyse saliva, other bodily fluids, and reveal whether or not they come from a male or a female. The system developed by researchers at Albany University, SUNY, State University of New York, USA, may soon be available to scientific support for law enforcement.

Journal Highlight: Modelling the transformation of organic materials in soil with nuclear magnetic resonance spectra

Date: Jan 30, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

Solid state 13C NMR spectroscopy gave better predictions of the transformations resulting from adding organic matter to soils than biochemical fractionation and near infrared reflectance spectrometry.

Journal Highlight: MRI classification system (MRICS) for children with cerebral palsy: development, reliability, and recommendations

Date: Jan 23, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

A classification system was developed and evaluated for MRI findings of children with cerebral palsy (CP) for use in CP registers and was proposed by the Surveillance of Cerebral Palsy in Europe (SCPE).

Journal Highlight: The effects of acute and chronic exercise on skeletal muscle proteome

Date: Jan 23, 2017

Author: spectroscopyNOW

This review aims to update the fast-growing exercise-proteomic scenario, leading to some new perspectives about the molecular events under skeletal muscle plasticity in response to physical activity.
