Size is everything: X-ray protein volume

Researchers in the US appear to have solved a paradox regarding the changing volume of proteins that dates back half a century. The team can now predict accurately through computational work how volume will change for a given protein between its folded and unfolded state. The study might shed light on the inner workings of life under pressure in the ocean depths and could have implications for understanding alien biochemistry should we ever identify life on other planets.

X-ray computed microtomography has been used to obtain high resolution imagery of a historical tsunami deposit in Andalusia, Spain, revealing grain-size distribution, structures, component analysis and sedimentary fabric.

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.
