Artificial cells-in-cells triggered by light act as mini chemical reactors
Artificial cells that release materials when exposed to light have been embedded in a durable membrane, allowing chemical reactions to be controlled. These structures could be used to control the synthesis of drugs in the body on demand, as well as function as microreactors that can simplify the production of valuable chemicals.

How Nagana is carried by tsetse flies
How Nagana is carried by tsetse flies
Researchers at the University of Bristol have revealed new details on how the animal disease Nagana is spread by tsetse flies in Africa. When animals are bitten by bloodsucking tsetse flies, they don't just get a painful bite, as the flies may be carrying a cargo of deadly microbes, trypanosomes. These microbes are squirted into the skin of the animal as the fly feeds and invade the bloodstream, causing the severe and sometimes fatal disease Nagana or African Animal Trypanosomiasis.

Resistance to antifungal drugs could lead to disease and global food shortages
Growing levels of resistance to antifungal treatments could lead to increased disease outbreaks and affect food security around the world. An international team, led by researchers from Imperial College London and the University of Exeter, warns that improvements are needed in how existing drugs are used, as well as an increased focus on the discovery of new treatments, in order to avoid a “global collapse” in our ability to control and fight fungal infections.

Cellular Valve Structure Opens Up Potential Novel Therapies
Cellular Valve Structure Opens Up Potential Novel Therapies
Human cells are enclosed by membranes and are in osmotic equilibrium with their environment. If the concentration of solute molecules (osmolarity) in the fluid surrounding the cells decreases, cells start to swell; in extreme cases, this can result in the cells bursting.

What we inherited from our bug-eating ancestors
What we inherited from our bug-eating ancestors
People who advocate adding insects to the human diet may be channeling their distant ancestors. Based on an analysis of the genomes of 107 different species of mammals, University of California, Berkeley, scientists conclude that our distant ancestors - the small, furry creatures that scurried around the feet of the dinosaurs 66 million years ago - were mostly insect eaters.

Does evolution make us or are we just drifting that way?
Evolution may be responsible for a range of complex traits, including height and waist-to-hip ratio, and diseases such as schizophrenia, research from The University of Queensland shows. The findings improve understanding of how natural selection shapes human populations, and could lead to better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of complex diseases through an enhanced knowledge of their underlying genetics.

Beyond Killing Tuberculosis
Historically, our view of host defense against infection was that we must eliminate pathogens to eradicate disease. However, this perspective has recently been challenged as scientists have taken a lesson from plant biologists about an ancient strategy involving the ability to "tolerate" rather than "resist" infection to maintain health.

Human MAIT cells sense the metabolic state of enteric bacteria
Human MAIT cells sense the metabolic state of enteric bacteria
A little-explored group of immune cells plays an important role in the regulation of intestinal bacteria. Changing metabolic states of the microbes have an effect on defense cells at different stages of alert or rest, as researchers from the Department of Biomedicine at the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the journal "Mucosal Immunology." It is known that the metabolites of bacteria influence the composition and function of immune cells resident within the gut.
