Hexbyte Glen Cove ‘Designer’ pore shows selective traffic to and from the cell nucleus

The team reduced the complexity of nuclear pores down to a single, artificial Nucleoporin that they call 'NupX'. This protein is based on the average properties of a class of Nucleoporins rich in the amino acid motif Glycine-Leucine-Phenylalanine-Glycine. In these simulation snapshots, each particle represents a whole amino acid. Credit: University of Groningen The...

Hexbyte Glen Cove New study shows microplastics turn into ‘hubs’ for pathogens, antibiotic-resistant bacteria

A single use of a facial exfoliator can release 5,000 -100,000 microplastics to the environment. Credit: NJIT It's estimated that an average-sized wastewater treatment plant serving roughly 400,000 residents will discharge up to 2,000,000 microplastic particles into the environment each day. Yet, researchers are still learning the environmental and human health impact of these...

Hexbyte Glen Cove Scientist shows global warming effect on greenhouse gas emissions in paddy soils

A soil scientist from RUDN University studied the decomposition of organic matter in rice paddies--the sources of CO2 and methane emissions. Both gases add to the greenhouse effect and affect climate warming in subtropical regions. The emissions increase when the roots of plants influence microbial communities in the soil. This influence, in turn, depends...
