...-rays produced by the Advanced Photon Source (APS) synchrotron at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois. The results suggest that the complex is formed in a series of steps. The metallochaperone begins as two copies of CCS bound together (known as a homodimer because of the like parts). Similarly, the target ...

Experimental microbeam radiation therapy may offer improvement over traditional radiation treatments

...in clinical radiation therapy, only high-intensity synchrotron sources can be used to confine the beam to the extremely narrow slices with very high dose rates that are needed for MRT. In the current study, the scientists used a single exposure to irradiate the entire brains of duck embryos three to four days be...

"Our...

Brookhaven Lab collaboration determines the atomic structure of a key enzyme called a 'biological blowtorch'

...other chemicals. The compound then was exposed to synchrotron x-rays, which added electrons to the mixture, causing a chemical reaction that is the hallmark of the enzyme: It splits molecular oxygen into two atoms and inserts one of the atoms into a hydrocarbon -- in this case, into camphor. While the resea...

Uncovering structure of cellular switch could aid design of cancer-fighting drugs
