As Global Temperatures Rise, Terrestrial Plant Numbers Will Fall

Written by AZoCleantech October 23, 2018 Scientists have discovered that global changes such as rising temperatures and higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are causing a decline in the availability of a vital nutrient for terrestrial plants. This could have an impact on the ability of forests to absorb carbon dioxide from the air and decrease the amount …

Insights into the behaviour of structural materials in a molten salt environment

Mia Maric (left) and Dr Ondrej Muransky. Credit: Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization (ANSTO) An international team of researchers led by ANSTO has found that cold laminar increases the susceptibility of materials to molten salt corrosion by increased grain boundary length and other microstructural defects, which typically contribute to the reinforcement of the material. Dr. Ondrej Muránsky, lead, high …

The role of the Atg2 protein in tethering pre-autophagosomal membranes to the endoplasmic reticulum

The postdoctoral researcher Tetsuya Kotani, the associate professor Hitoshi Nakatogawa, the honorary professor Yoshinori Ohsumi and colleagues from Tokyo Tech analyzed the Atg Atg2 protein, whose function was completely unknown and found that Atg2 binds the pre-autophagosomal membrane to the endoplasmic reticulum during autophagosome formation.

Earth’s inner core is softer: How is the planet formed?

Contrary to the fact that the inner core of the Earth is solid, researchers at the Australian National University (ANU) have discovered that it is relatively softer. In a revolutionary discovery, associate professor Hrvoje Tkalcic and PhD Scholar Thanh-Son Pham are sure that the inner core of the Earth is solid. However, Tkalcic said, "we found that the inner core …

Atg2 tethers pre-autophagosomal membrane to endoplasmic reticulum during autophagosome formation

Postdoctoral researcher Tetsuya Kotani, associate professor Hitoshi Nakatogawa, honorary professor Yoshinori Ohsumi and colleagues from the Tokyo Institute of Technology analyzed Atg2 protein Atg2, whose function was completely unknown, and found that Atg2 binds the membrane pre autophagosomal to the endoplasmic reticulum during autophagosome formation. Autophagy is the mechanism that degrades cellular components such as proteins, ribonucleic acids (RNA) and …

Stephen Hawking’s Wheelchair And Papers Are Up For Auction, And We Hope They Land In Good Hands

This morning, Christies announced that she would auction 22 objects from the life and work of the famous theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawking, who passed away at the beginning of this year. Among the auctioned items will be one of Professor Hawking's previous powered wheelchairs, which he relied on when his battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis left him almost completely paralyzed. …
