Researchers create specialized delivery methods to help treat cancer, other disorders
(University of Missouri-Columbia) More than 100 years ago, German Nobel laureate Paul Ehrlich popularized the 'magic bullet' concept -- a method that clinicians might one day use to target invading microbes without harming other parts of the body. Although chemotherapies have been highly useful as targeted treatments for cancer, unwanted side effects still plague patients. Now, researchers at the University of Missouri have demonstrated that specialized nucleic acid-based nanostructures could be used to target cancer cells while bypassing normal cells.

Mapping the dark space of chemical reactions with extended nanomole synthesis and MALDI-TOF MS
Understanding the practical limitations of chemical reactions is critically important for efficiently planning the synthesis of compounds in pharmaceutical, agrochemical, and specialty chemical research and development. However, literature reports of the scope of new reactions are often cursory and biased toward successful results, severely limiting the ability to predict reaction outcomes for untested substrates.

We show that a graphene Dirac source (DS) with a much narrower electron density distribution around the Fermi level than that of conventional FETs can lower SS.

Fc receptors (FcRs) are an important bridge between the innate and adaptive immune system. Fc gamma receptor I (FcRI; CD64), the high-affinity receptor for immunoglobulin G (IgG), plays roles in inflammation, autoimmune responses, and immunotherapy. Stimulation of myeloid cells with cytokines, such as tumor necrosis factor–α ( TNFα) and interferon- ( IFN), increases the binding of FcRI to immune complexes (ICs), such as antibody-opsonized pathogens or tumor cells, through a process known as "inside-out" signaling. Using super-resolution imaging, we found that stimulation of cells with IL-3 also ...
