Every day, millions of Americans rely on natural gas to power appliances such as kitchen stoves, furnaces, and water heaters, but until now very little data existed on the chemical makeup of the gas ...
Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is widespread, and so far there is no effective drug. In the search for one, the so-called rocaglates have come into focus: plant compounds that can inhibit the replication of ...
Computer scientists develop a method that allows humans to help complex robots build efficient solutions to 'see' their environments and carry out tasks.
A species of sea urchin in the Mediterranean will be able to live in our future climate-changed seas -- while other animals will die as waters become hotter and more acidic. Added to this, urchins ...
Researchers identify new mechanism that teaches immune cells-in-training to spare the body's own tissues while attacking pathogens. As part of this early education, specialized thymus cells 'pose' as ...
Methanol made from CO2 in the air can be transformed into carbon neutral fuels. A new mechanistic understanding aids development of this sustainable alternative.
Researchers have now visualized the molecular structure of the LAG3 protein. They describe the crystal structure of LAG3 and how it interacts with molecules produced by cancer cells.
Physicians were 20 to 30 percent less likely to prescribe an analgesic during nightshifts (compared to daytime shifts) and prescribed fewer painkillers than were generally recommended by the World ...
Testing the longevity of new electric vehicle battery designs could be four times faster with a streamlined approach, researchers have shown.
A new study shows that house sparrows' health closely correlates with urban density, and that sparrows are carrying surprisingly high loads of lead in their bodies.
Over a 30-year period, African wild dogs shifted their average birthing dates later by 22 days, an adaptation that allowed them to match the birth of new litters with the coolest temperatures in early ...
A study of 10,775 high-risk adult patients during the COVID-19 delta variant surge in late 2021 finds that treatment with one of three anti-spike neutralizing monoclonal antibodies for mild to ...
