Nanoscale control of internal inhomogeneity enhances water transport in desalination membranes
Biological membranes can achieve remarkably high permeabilities, while maintaining ideal selectivities, by relying on well-defined internal nanoscale structures in the form of membrane proteins. Here, we apply such design strategies to desalination membranes. A series of polyamide desalination membranes—which were synthesized in an industrial-scale manufacturing line and varied in processing conditions but retained similar chemical compositions—show increasing water permeability and active layer thickness with constant sodium chloride selectivity. Transmission electron microscopy measurements enabled us to dete...

Near-atomic 'maps' reveal structure for maintaining pH balance in cells
(Van Andel Research Institute) For the first time, scientists have visualized a new class of molecular gates that maintain pH balance within brain cells, a critical function that keeps cells alive and helps prevent stroke and other brain injuries. These gates, called proton-activated chloride channels (PAC), nest within cell membranes and regulate the passage of small molecules called chloride ions into and out of cells. This allows cells to sense and respond to their environment. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Exposure to aluminum is a risk factor for cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and bone disease, just to name a few. Our lungs, liver, and kidneys are able to eliminate a majority of the small amounts of aluminum we ingest through eating, drinking or breath...

Ion transport and regulation in a synaptic vesicle glutamate transporter
We report the cryo–electron microscopy structure of rat VGLUT2 at 3.8-angstrom resolution and propose structure-based mechanisms for substrate recognition and allosteric activation by low pH and chloride. A potential permeation pathway for chloride intersects with the glutamate binding site. These results demonstrate how the activity of VGLUTs can be coordinated with large shifts in proton and chloride concentrations during the synaptic vesicle cycle to ensure normal synaptic transmission.

They can also transport the important messenger substance cGAMP from cell to cell and thus strengthen the immune response to infections with DNA viruses. Since cGAMP is always formed when cells detect DNA outside their nucleus, the discovery is potentially of great importance also for other pathologies such as cancer. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

BOSTON (CBS) — There may be a new weapon to attack cancer cells with less harm to the patient, and it you can probably find it right on your kitchen table. It’s salt, which is also called sodium chloride. Researchers at the University of Georgia used sodium chloride nano-particles as a so-called “Trojan Horse” to deliver cancer-killing sodium and chloride ions into cancer cells. But they say the treatment isn’t toxic because when the nano-particles degrade, they just turn into salt. In fact, when they injected these salt nano-particles into tumors in mice, the sodium chloride nano-particles su...
