Bowel cancer: Mayo Clinic Healthcare expert describes role hard-to-see polyps play in cancer risk
LONDON — Physicians screening people for bowel cancer are becoming increasingly concerned about a type of polyp once thought harmless: serrated polyps, sawtooth-edged growths in the colon that are flat, nearly translucent, and sometimes difficult to spot during colonoscopies. New research suggests people with serrated polyps should be checked more frequently for bowel cancer, a Mayo Clinic Healthcare expert writes in a commentary in the journal Gut. A serrated polyp after blue dye has been… (Source: News from Mayo Clinic)

Long-chain polyphosphates impair SARS-CoV-2 infection and replication
Inorganic polyphosphates (polyPs) are linear polymers composed of repeated phosphate (PO43–) units linked together by multiple high-energy phosphoanhydride bonds. In addition to being a source of energy, polyPs have cytoprotective and antiviral activities. Here, we investigated the antiviral activities of long-chain polyPs against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. In molecular docking analyses, polyPs interacted with several conserved amino acid residues in angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), the host receptor that facilitates virus entry, and in viral RNA-dependent RNA polym...
