Researchers Find Salt Could Be Used To Treat Cancer
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...

Cryo-EM structures of the human cation-chloride cotransporter KCC1
Cation-chloride cotransporters (CCCs) mediate the coupled, electroneutral symport of cations with chloride across the plasma membrane and are vital for cell volume regulation, salt reabsorption in the kidney, and -aminobutyric acid (GABA)–mediated modulation in neurons. Here we present cryo–electron microscopy (cryo-EM) structures of human potassium-chloride cotransporter KCC1 in potassium chloride or sodium chloride at 2.9- to 3.5-angstrom resolution. KCC1 exists as a dimer, with both extracellular and transmembrane domains involved in dimerization. The structural and functional analyses, along with computatio...

Dental Experts Warn Against Using Baking Soda, Salt To Whiten Teeth
(CNN) — If you regularly enjoy coffee, tea, red wine and pastas with marinara sauce, you might be aware that these foods and beverages leave behind stains on your teeth well after they are consumed. But if you think you’ve found a whitening solution in the form of table salt (sodium chloride) or baking soda (another type of salt, sodium bicarbonate), think again. “I see no clinical reason why someone would brush their teeth with salt,” said Dr. Matt Messina, an Ohio-based dentist and assistant professor at the Ohio State University College of Dentistry. “There is no scientific evidence that br...

Medical Device Manufacturing Trends: Finding Simplicity Amid Complexity
Manufacturing trends for medical applications using pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) can be as diverse as the products the PSAs hold together, whether wearables, wound care solutions, diagnostic instruments, or ostomy devices. Yet there is some common ground. One of the overarching trends can be summed up as follows: The simpler the supply chain, the better. Device manufacturers and their supply chain partners are always looking for ways to leverage manufacturing strategies that are stable, scalable and efficient. Yet at the same time, device performance requirements can be quite complex. It may seem paradoxical, but so...

The charge state of a molecule governs its physicochemical properties, such as conformation, reactivity, and aromaticity, with implications for on-surface synthesis, catalysis, photoconversion, and applications in molecular electronics. On insulating, multilayer sodium chloride (NaCl) films, we controlled the charge state of organic molecules and resolved their structures in neutral, cationic, anionic, and dianionic states by atomic force microscopy, obtaining atomic resolution and bond-order discrimination using carbon monoxide (CO)–functionalized tips. We detected changes in conformation, adsorption geometry, and b...

Chloride capture using a C-H hydrogen-bonding cage
Tight binding and high selectivity are hallmarks of biomolecular recognition. Achieving these behaviors with synthetic receptors has usually been associated with OH and NH hydrogen bonding. Contrary to this conventional wisdom, we designed a chloride-selective receptor in the form of a cryptand-like cage using only CH hydrogen bonding. Crystallography showed chloride stabilized by six short 2.7-angstrom hydrogen bonds originating from the cage’s six 1,2,3-triazoles. Attomolar affinity (1017 M–1) was determined using liquid-liquid extractions of chloride from water into nonpolar dichloromethane solvents. Control...

Rapid molecular evolution of pain insensitivity in multiple African rodents
Noxious substances, called algogens, cause pain and are used as defensive weapons by plants and stinging insects. We identified four previously unknown instances of algogen-insensitivity by screening eight African rodent species related to the naked mole-rat with the painful substances capsaicin, acid (hydrogen chloride, pH 3.5), and allyl isothiocyanate (AITC). Using RNA sequencing, we traced the emergence of sequence variants in transduction channels, like transient receptor potential channel TRPA1 and voltage-gated sodium channel Nav1.7, that accompany algogen insensitivity. In addition, the AITC-insensitive highveld mo...

PAC, an evolutionarily conserved membrane protein, is a proton-activated chloride channel
Severe local acidosis causes tissue damage and pain, and is one of the hallmarks of many diseases including ischemia, cancer, and inflammation. However, the molecular mechanisms of the cellular response to acid are not fully understood. We performed an unbiased RNA interference screen and identified PAC (TMEM206) as being essential for the widely observed proton-activated Cl– (PAC) currents (ICl,H). Overexpression of human PAC in PAC knockout cells generated ICl,H with the same characteristics as the endogenous ones. Zebrafish PAC encodes a PAC channel with distinct properties.
