Researchers from Weill Cornell Medicine and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute have discovered that DNA can mimic protein functions by adopting complex, three-dimensional structures. The team created a DNA molecule that replicates the activity of green fluorescent protein (GFP), commonly used in laboratories as a fluorescent tag. By using high-resolution imaging techniques, they […]
In a ground-breaking development for the environment, scientists have successfully created commonly used painkillers, acetaminophen and ibuprofen, using a compound derived from pine trees. This compound, β-pinene, is a by-product of the paper industry, offering a sustainable alternative to oil-based chemicals currently used in medication. The researchers at the University of Bath employed continuous flow […]
