Proteins are 'virtually' knotted
Proteins are ’virtually’ knotted
Many of the processes essential to life involve proteins - long molecules which 'fold' into three-dimensional shapes allowing them to perform their biological role. Consisting of strings of amino acids, a folded protein molecule resembles a coiled, tangled piece of wire, which, as everyday experience suggests, may be knotted.

Immune system defence force captured in action
Immune system defence force captured in action
How the natural defence force within our immune system attacks and destroys harmful invaders such as virus-infected and cancerous cells has been visualised in microscopic detail by scientists from UCL, Birkbeck, University of London, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and Monash University, Australia. The research, published today , deepens understanding of the critical role of the protein called ‘perforin' in a functioning immune system, bringing us one step closer to new therapies with the potential to boost or inhibit its impact when required.

Rudolph's antlers inspire next generation of unbreakable materials
Rudolph’s antlers inspire next generation of unbreakable materials
Scientists from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) have discovered the secret behind the toughness of deer antlers and how they can resist breaking during fights. Wednesday 21 December 2016 The team looked at the antler structure at the 'nano-level', which is incredibly small, almost one thousandth of the thickness of a hair strand, and were able to identify the mechanisms at work, using state-of-the-art computer modelling and x-ray techniques.

Theory that challenges Einstein’s physics could soon be put to the test
Scientists behind a theory that the speed of light is variable - and not constant as Einstein suggested - have made a prediction that could be tested. Einstein observed that the speed of light remains the same in any situation, and this meant that space and time could be different in different situations.

Single-molecule graphene switches bring minute electronic devices a step closer
Researchers have discovered how to control molecules attached to graphene, paving the way for tiny biological sensors and devices to hold information. Graphene is a material made of a single sheet of carbon atoms in a honeycomb arrangement. Because of its unique electrical conductivity, graphene has the potential to be a base for electronic devices that are only nanometres (billionths of a metre) in size.
