Electric jolt triggers release of biomolecules, nanoparticles
...way to use a brief burst of electricity to release biomolecules
and nanoparticles from a tiny gold launch pad. The technique could someday be used to dispense small amounts of medicine on command from a chip implanted in the body. The method also may be useful in chemical reactions that require the controlled rel...

...ules that inflict cellular damage by reacting with biomolecules
including DNA, proteins, and lipids. A lifetime of oxidative stress leads to general cellular deterioration associated with aging and degenerative diseases. How the oxidative-stress signals trigger these profound effects in cells has remained unclear...
Nanoscale study gives new insight into heat transfer in biological systems
... example. The surfaces of proteins, DNA, and other biomolecules
interact with water to form the very basis of life. In water-based solutions, proteins instinctively fold into unique three-dimensional structures, which do much of the work in the body. Misfolded proteins also are implicated in diseases such as Alzh...
