Scientific equipment including the first European student experiment reaches the ISS
...ght. Bacteria could help to dispose of waste or to recycle
air and water, and their gas might be used as fuel. WINOGRAD requires late access because of its living samples. As one of the last payloads it was loaded onto the Progress M-48 just eight hours prior to launch. It will be activated in September by t...
Fe-TAML(R) activators developed at Carnegie Mellon decolorize textile mill wastewater
...g Fe-TAML activators could enable manufacturers to recycle
water used in textile dyeing. This step would reduce overall plant costs and save millions of gallons of water yearly over the entire industry. Theoretically, sunlight would also penetrate Fe-TAML-treated water much more easily than dyed water, there...
Unique two-part macroemulsion offers new approach to cleaning up contaminated aquifers
...nd remove the compound, then separate and treat or recycle
it above ground," Pennell explained. "We are trying to remove the long-term source of groundwater contamination in a manner that will produce the most results for the least cost. It's generally not economically feasible to treat the entire aquifer....
When heme attacks: After trauma, the molecule that makes life possible rampages
...of Physiology. "Normally, cells can compensate and recycle
loose heme. But when larger concentrations are released, heme can gum up the works, specifically the Maxi-K ion channel, a cell membrane protein important for blood vessel relaxation and neuron excitability." Maxi-K is a channel that moves potassium...

vitamin C, thus reducing the ability to eliminate the buildup in reactive oxygen species that occurs...
Scientists track protein linked to movement disorder
...roteins. This protein family typically helps cells recycle
resources by breaking down assemblies of other proteins and molecules into their components, like disassembling a car for reuse of its parts. Hanson, who studies behavior of cell membranes, previously found torsinA in the endoplasmic reticulum, a lar...
