Bacteria used to make a molecular ‘super glue’

19.8.2013   |   News of Science

Scientists have created a molecular super-glue using bacterial proteins. The glue was apparently so strong that it broke the instrument used to measure the strength of the glue.


Genes Of The Y Chromosome Identified Which Could Be Responsible For Its Association With Coronary Artery Disease

12.8.2013   |   News of Science

University of Leicester scientists have discovered a potential genetic contributor to the increased risk of heart disease among men. A team of researchers including clinicians and scientists have made an important step forward in search of the mechanisms underlying increased risk of coronary artery disease in men who carry a particular type of the...


A biomimetic nanosponge that absorbs pore-forming toxins

5.8.2013   |   News of Science

Detoxification treatments such as toxin-targeted anti-virulence therapy offer ways to cleanse the body of virulence factors that are caused by bacterial infections, venomous injuries and biological weaponry. Because existing detoxification platforms such as antisera, monoclonal antibodies, small-molecule inhibitors and molecularly imprinted...
