Scientists propose process to protect African elephants
Threatened African elephants could be better protected using approaches developed during the ending of apartheid, conflict resolution in Colombia and international climate change negotiations. A group of leading scientists from around the world, including Lancaster University, have outlined a policy process that they believe could break the current deadlock in negotiations on ivory and help protect our largest land mammals.

Using 3D cell cultures to fight anti-cancer therapy resistance
An international research team headed by the University of Bern and the Netherlands Cancer Institute has developed 3D cell cultures in which genes can be specifically modified. They allow the study of genes that may cause therapy resistance in breast cancer. This knowledge may further improve the use of targeted anti-cancer drugs.

Acrobatic Duo in the Cells
Acrobatic Duo in the Cells
Just like an acrobatic duo, some proteins lend each other stability. Researchers at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel have discovered that the protein ‘Trigger factor' recognizes a partner by instable, flexible domains, to then together form a stable protein duo. The study has been published in the current issue of ‘Nature Communications'.

Role of melanoma-promoting protein revealed
In a new study, Yale researchers describe the role of a protein that promotes growth of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. The gene, MELK, encodes a protein kinase - an enzyme that modifies other proteins - and is over-expressed in melanoma patient samples compared to normal skin. The research team, led by associate professor of pathology Narendra Wajapayee, analyzed human melanoma cells to determine how MELK stimulates cancer growth, and whether they could block its activity to prevent melanoma growth and enhance the efficacy of existing therapies that target the BRAF cancer gene.

Nanodiscs catch misfolding proteins red-handed
U-M researchers have mapped the proteins that cause cell death in type 2 diabetes ANN ARBOR-When proteins misfold, accumulate and clump around insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, they kill cells. Now, researchers, including University of Michigan biophysicists, have obtained a structural snapshot of these proteins when they are most toxic, detailing them down to the atomic level.

New Dental Material Resists Plaque and Kills Microbes, Penn Dental Team Finds
New Dental Material Resists Plaque and Kills Microbes, Penn Dental Team Finds
Dentists rely on composite materials to perform restorative procedures, such as filling cavities. Yet these materials, like tooth enamel, can be vulnerable to the growth of plaque, the sticky biofilm that leads to tooth decay. In a new study, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania evaluated a new dental material tethered with an antimicrobial compound that can not only kill bacteria but can also resist biofilm growth.

California’s dry regions are hotspots of plant diversity
The first "big data" analysis of California's native plants, using digitized information from more than 22 herbaria and botanical gardens around the state, provides some surprises about one of the most thoroughly studied and unique areas in the country. For one, the state's arid regions, including deserts such as Death Valley, are hotspots for originating new plant species and providing refuges for older plants that have disappeared elsewhere.
