We can createholographic images of molecules and even interact with them physically to feelthe strength of the bond between a pharmaceutical agent and the receptor, forinstance, if we try to pull them apart. * There is experi...

Snapshot of new drug marks a major advance by Memorial Sloan-Kettering researchers

...o anenzyme and affects how it regulates cells. By visualizing how the drug, calledSAHA, nestles into the active site of the enzyme and subtly alters itsstructure, the picture will enable investigators to make more potent and morespecifically targeted versions of these drugs. The first clinical trial of SAHAis ...

Jellyfish protein illuminates active immune cells

...em, Schaefer turnedhis attention to the problem of visualizing MEKK2 in active, living T cells. Thetwo researchers, with help from others in the Johnson laboratory, developed asystem to record digital movies of MEKK2 fused to GFP under conditions that didnot disturb the activity of the helper T cells. The resul...

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

...ting is that they have produced a molecular movie, visualizing five critical steps in one of the enzyme's typical chemical reactions. The researchers used an intense x-ray beam from one of the facilities, or "beam lines" of Brookhaven's National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) to perform the study. In the reac...

Gorillas in the bits: remote sensing boosts efforts to protect mountain gorillas & rebuild Rwanda's economy

Simple and inexpensive, an artificial nose senses smell by seeing colors

...that is simple, fast and inexpensive and works by visualizing odors. Called "smell-seeing" by its inventors, the technique is based on color changes that occur in an array of vapor-sensitive dyes known as metalloporphyrins doughnut-shaped molecules that bind metal atoms. Metalloporphyrins are closely relate...

For the first time, scientists uncover how breast cancer metastasizes

...untilrecently there has been no effective means of visualizing lymphatic vessels.Using a new method for imaging lymphatic vessels, he and Skobe observed networksof lymphatic vessels deep inside breast tumor masses grown in mice. Upon closerinspection, the vessels appeared to be carrying tumor cells. Most striki...

New technology expands 'molecular photography' options
