Bonds from the past: A journey through the history of protein synthesis

By The Tokyo University of Science The process of “translation” in protein synthesis involves the formation of a peptide bond between two amino acids that are attached to two distinct transfer RNAs (tRNAs). Scientists have been puzzled as to how these tRNAs evolutionarily lie so close to each other on the ribosome. In a new …

What scientists just discovered about the Monkeypox virus on surfaces–it’s not good news

By EUROPEAN CENTRE FOR DISEASE PREVENTION AND CONTROL (ECDC) During the currently evolving outbreak of monkeypox cases outside of known endemic areas, transmission is mostly driven by close physical contact with symptomatic people. While viral transmission between humans has been described previously, data on environmental contamination of surfaces is very limited. Environmental sampling in patient rooms In a new study, Nörz …

Bilobalide herb reduces damage to the heart caused by cardiac disease – study

by Journal of Pharmaceutical Analysis Myocardial ischemia (MI) is a prevalent heart-related metabolic disorder. A team of researchers from China have confirmed that MI-affected heart muscles suffer an energy metabolism blockage from glycolysis to the tricarboxylic acid cycle, resulting in excessive metabolite accumulation. Bilobalide, an active component found in extracts of the native Chinese tree …
