Quantifying secondary transport at single-molecule resolution

GET FEATURED! VIEW DETAILS. Nature, Published online: 13 November 2019; doi:10.1038/s41586-019-1747-5 Imaging of substrate transport by individual MhsT transporters, members of the neurotransmitter:sodium symporter family of secondary transporters, at single- and multi-turnover resolution reveals that the rate-limiting step varies with the identity of the transported substrate.

Tiny low-energy device to rapidly reroute light in computer chips

GET FEATURED! VIEW DETAILS. Researchers have developed an optical switch that routes light from one computer chip to another in just 20 billionths of a second — faster than any other similar device. The compact switch is the first to operate at voltages low enough to be integrated onto low-cost silicon chips and redirects light…

Chemists use light to build biologically active compounds

GET FEATURED! VIEW DETAILS. Many biologically active molecules, including synthetic drugs, contain a central, nitrogen-containing chemical structure with a three-dimensional shape. However, there are hardly any suitable methods to produce them, which also makes it difficult to discover new medicinal compounds. A team of researchers have now developed a new method, a special photocatalyst, enabling…

Megadrought likely triggered the fall of the Assyrian Empire

GET FEATURED! VIEW DETAILS. The Neo-Assyrian Empire, centered in northern Iraq and extending from Iran to Egypt — the largest empire of its time — collapsed after more than two centuries of dominance at the fall of its capital, Nineveh, in 612 B.C.E. Despite a plethora of cuneiform textual documentation and archaeological excavations and field…

For some urban areas, a warming climate is only half the threat

GET FEATURED! VIEW DETAILS. A new study projects that the growth of urban areas in the coming decades will trigger ”extra” warming due to a phenomenon known as the urban heat island effect (UHI). According to their findings, urban expansion will cause the average summer temperature in these areas to increase about 0.5 to 0.6 degrees C…

Rollercoaster weight changes can repeat with second pregnancy, especially among normal-weight women

GET FEATURED! VIEW DETAILS. Everyone knows that gaining excess weight during one pregnancy is bad, but clinicians rarely consider weight gains and losses from one pregnancy to the next — especially in normal-weight women. But researchers have now found that among normal-weight women, fluctuating weight gain and loss in the first pregnancy is often repeated…
