A Climate Solution Lies Deep Under the Ocean —But Accessing It Could Have Huge Environmental Costs
Scattered three miles deep along the floor of the central Pacific are trillions of black, misshapen nuggets that may just be the solution to an impending energy crisis. Similar in size and appearance to partially burned charcoal briquettes, the nuggets are called polymetallic nodules, and are an amalgamation of nickel, cobalt, manganese and other rare earth metals, formed through a complex biochemical process in which shark teeth and fish bones are encased by minerals accreted out of ocean waters over millions of years. Marine biologists say they are part of one of the least-understood environments on earth, holding, if no...

What are Some of the Complications of Short Bowel Syndrome?
Discussion Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is one of the most common gastrointestinal emergencies in neonates. Mortality rates are from 0-45% depending on infant weight and gestation with more premature and smaller infants having greater mortality. NEC usually occurs in premature infants but it also occurs in term infants. The etiology is unknown but is probably multifactorial with ischemia and/or reperfusion playing some role. There are ‘outbreaks’ of NEC but no causative organism has been identified. Regardless of the originating cause, inflammation of the intestine and release of inflammatory mediators causes variou...

Higher selenium and manganese levels during pregnancy may protect babies from future high blood pressure
(Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health) Children who were exposed to higher levels of trace minerals manganese and selenium during their mothers' pregnancy had a lower risk of high blood pressure in childhood, according to a study led by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Clever biomolecular labelling enables identification of immune cells
(University of G ö ttingen) Biomolecules regulate the biological functions inside every living cell. If scientists can understand the molecular mechanisms, then it is possible to detect severe dysfunction. At a molecular level, this can be achieved with fluorescent markers that are incorporated into the respective biomolecules. Researchers at the Universities of G ö ttingen and Edinburgh are now able to show that a complex of manganese makes it possible to conveniently label certain biomolecules. Results were published in Nature Communications. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

Plantwatch: the trees that feed on metal
These plants can clean contaminated soils, could they also offer a greener way of collecting much-needed substances?A magnificent tall tree calledPycnandra acuminata grows on the island of New Caledonia in the South Pacific, and it does something strange – when its bark is cutit bleeds a bright blue-green latex that contains up to 25% nickel, a metal highly poisonous to most plants in more than tiny amounts.An estimated 700 plant species have unusually high levels of metal, mostly nickel but not in all cases. The macadamia tree has leaves and sap rich in manganese, although fortunately not in the nut. If such metal-conta...

Scientists reveal elusive inner workings of antioxidant enzyme with therapeutic potential
(DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) The enzyme manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) plays a critical role in maintaining human health by keeping the amount of harmful reactive oxygen molecules in cells under control. By using neutron scattering at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, researchers have now obtained a complete atomic portrait of the enzyme, revealing key information about its catalytic mechanism. The work could help experts develop MnSOD-based treatments and design therapeutics that mimic its antioxidant behavior. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)
