Mars Was Always Destined to Die
Mars is the solar system’s near-miss world. Earth may have gotten everything right when it came to sustaining life—atmosphere, water, proximity to the sun. Mercury, Venus and the outer planets, with their extreme temperatures and inhospitable chemistry, may have gotten everything wrong. Mars, on the other hand, came so close, yet fell short. Thanks to data from rovers and other spacecraft, we know that the Red Planet once fairly sloshed with water—with dry deltas, riverbeds, and sea basins stamped into its surface. But 4 billion years ago, the Martian core cooled, shutting down the dynamo that sustained i...

How Common are Co-infections with Trichomonas and Bacterial Vaginosis?
Discussion Vulvovaginitis is a common gynecological complaint for females of all ages. It is specifically the inflammation of the vulva and vagina but is used as a general term often to mean vulvar irritation, itching, and burning that can occur with or without vaginal discharge. In prepubertal females there is lack of estrogenization, and less lactobacillus species which creates a more neutral pH (normal vaginal pH is 20%. BV is caused by a change in the normal vaginal flora with a decrease in lactobacillus and an overgrowth of facultative anaerobic organisms. These organisms include Garnerella vaginalis, Atopobium vagina...

New method offers insights into tension-sensitivity of potassium channels
(University of Fukui) Ion channel activity varies according to the mechanical stresses acting on ion channels within the cell membrane, but directly measuring such changes within a complex cell membrane is difficult. Now, researchers at the University of Fukui have developed a simplified model system that allows experimenters to measure both membrane tension and the associated variability in ion channel activity. Their experiments have already yielded evidence for hysteresis in a potassium channel's responses to membrane tension. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

We report the detection of lithium, sodium, potassium, and calcium in the atmosphere of the white dwarf Gaia DR2 4353607450860305024, which we ascribe to the accretion of a planetesimal. Using model atmospheres, we determine abundance ratios of these elements, and, with the exception of lithium, they are consistent with meteoritic values in the Solar System. We compare the measured lithium abundance with measurements in old stars and with expectations from Big Bang nucleosynthesis. (Source: ScienceNOW)
