Researchers create nanotubes that change colors, form 'nanocarpet' and kill bacteria

...eadly substances. The researchers thought that by combining a chemical structure called a quarternary ammonium salt group, known for its ability to disrupt cell membranes and cause cell death, with a hydrocarbon diacetylene, which can change colors when appropriately formulated, the resulting molecule would h...

Green, leafy spinach may soon power cellphones and laptops

...lot of energy relative to its size and weight. But combining biological and non-biological materials in one device has stymied researchers in the past. Biological materials need water and salt to survive-both are deadly for electronics. FROM WET TO DRY A new twist in the current work is a membrane of pep...

New sign language suggests children create language's fundamentals through learning

...tures produced by the hearing group as they spoke, combining movement type and direction in a single hand motion. The two younger groups, however, separated the movement type and direction into different signs, as is done in spoken language. "So what they're doing looks very language-like and does not look ge...

University of Pittsburgh receives $10 million grant for head and neck cancer

... and neck cancer, preliminary studies suggest that combining strategies that block both receptor families has a synergistic effect on inhibiting the growth of head and neck cancer cells. With 36,200 estimated new cases and 11,000 deaths in 2003, head and neck cancer accounts for 4 percent to 5 percent of all n...

Meteorites supplied Earth life with phosphorus

...s have tried heating apatite to high temperatures, combining it with various strange, super-energetic compounds, even experimenting with phosphorous compounds unknown on Earth. This research hasn't explained where life's phosphorus comes from, Pasek noted. Pasek began working with Dante Lauretta, UA assistant ...

Improving crops without genetic modification natural variation holds the key

...d to different environments, including drought. By combining traditional breeding techniques with genetic marker analysis, the authors identified a number of wild tomato genomic regions that dramatically increased yield. Their results demonstrate that an approach based on biodiversity--which takes advantage of...

...algae is 25 hours.) They created mixed colonies by combining the strains in pairs: wild type and 22 hour; wild type and 30 hour; 22 hour and 30 hour. Then they put these mixed cultures into incubators with three different light-dark cycles--22 hours, 24 hours and 30 hours--and monitored them for about a month....
