Emory chemists develop bacteria that may help decaffeinate coffee
...m needs a particular molecule to survive, it has a strong
incentive to help make it, so the goal was to make bacteria depend on a molecule that they wouldn't normally need. In their first major breakthrough, the Emory researchers have coupled the life of a bacterium to the presence of theophylline, a compou...
Protein protecting brain from toxins also blocks some chemotherapy from reaching tumors

evidence that over-expression of Mrp4 in tumors contributes to topotecan resistance in patients. "Our work has important implications for therapies that target brain tumors with specific types of drugs that are transported by Mrp4," Schuetz said. "T...
Estrogen protects male rats from aortic aneurysms

evidence for an estrogen-mediated protective effect, Upchurch cautions that it does not mean everyone should start taking estrogen to protect against AAAs. "There is no medical therapy for abdominal aortic aneurysms," he says. "But understanding exac...
