New methods for maintaining the quality of minimally processed potatoes for 14 days

17.11.2014   |   Newly on Gate2Biotech

Gloria Bobo-García, a graduate in Food Science and Technology, has proposed in her PhD thesis alternatives to the use of sulphites in potatoes, one of the main preservatives currently used and which, among other properties, prevents the browning that appears after peeling and/or cutting certain foods.


Lack of oxygen delayed the rise of animals on Earth

14.11.2014   |   Newly on Gate2Biotech

Geologists are letting the air out of a nagging mystery about the development of animal life on Earth. Scientists have long speculated as to why animal species didn't flourish sooner, once sufficient oxygen covered the Earth's surface. Animals began to prosper at the end of the Proterozoic period, about 800 million years ago — but what about...


Growing a Blood Vessel in a Week

13.11.2014   |   Newly on Gate2Biotech

The technology for creating new tissues from stem cells has taken a giant leap forward. Two tablespoons of blood are all that is needed to grow a brand new blood vessel in just seven days. This is shown in a new study from Sahlgrenska Acadedmy and Sahlgrenska University Hospital published in EBioMedicine.


Green spaces don\'t ensure biodiversity in urban areas

12.11.2014   |   Newly on Gate2Biotech

Planting trees and creating green space in cities is good for attracting species, but it may not be enough to ensure biodiversity in built environments, a University of Iowa study has found.


Molecular beacons shine light on how cells \'crawl\'

11.11.2014   |   Newly on Gate2Biotech

Adherent cells, the kind that form the architecture of all multi-cellular organisms, are mechanically engineered with precise forces that allow them to move around and stick to things. Proteins called integrin receptors act like little hands and feet to pull these cells across a surface or to anchor them in place. When groups of these cells are...


New research offers hope in treating sleeping sickness

10.11.2014   |   Newly on Gate2Biotech

In early drug dis­covery, you need a starting point, says North­eastern Uni­ver­sity asso­ciate pro­fessor of chem­istry and chem­ical biology Michael Pollastri. In a new research paper pub­lished Thursday in the journal PLOS-??Neglected Trop­ical Dis­eases, Pol­lastri and his col­leagues present hun­dreds of such starting points for poten­tially...


Wild tomato species focus of antioxidant study

Results can help breeders improve health-related traits in cultivated tomatoes.


Researchers unfold new details about a powerful protein

6.11.2014   |   Newly on Gate2Biotech

Using X-rays and neutron beams, a team of researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, University of Utah and Oak Ridge National Laboratory have teased out new information about Protein Kinase A (PKA), a ubiquitous master switch that helps regulate fundamental cellular functions like energy consumption and...


Unusual skin cancer linked to chronic allergy from metal orthopedic implant

5.11.2014   |   Newly on Gate2Biotech

In rare cases, patients with allergies to metals develop persistent skin rashes after metal devices are implanted near the skin. New research suggests these patients may be at increased risk of an unusual and aggressive form of skin cancer.
