(HealthDay)—Machine learning of toxological big data can predict the toxicity of chemicals, and may be more reliable than animal testing, according to a study published in the September issue of Toxicological Sciences. Noting that the probability that an OECD guideline animal test would output the same result in a repeat test was 78 to 96 […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers from North Carolina State University have created the largest publicly available virtual library of macrolide scaffolds. The library – called V1M – contains chemical structures and computed properties for 1 million macrolide scaffolds with potential for use as antibiotics or cancer drugs. “As chemists, we’re only able to look at a tiny portion of […]Continue Reading ...
Scientists from Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry of Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow managed to look inside an organic chemical reaction with electron microscope and recorded the occurred transformation in real time. The team from the laboratory of Prof. Ananikov applied combined nano-scale and molecular-scale approaches to the study of chemical transformation in catalytic […]Continue Reading ...
A chemical that mimics sandalwood has been found to have the ability to stimulate hair growth among humans finds a new study. This brings hope for people losing hair worldwide. Researchers from Monasterium Laboratory, Münster, have expressed hope that this new chemical could treat hair loss effectively and are trying the drug for its effectiveness […]Continue Reading ...
It was morning in Khan Sheikhoun, a small rural town in the north of Syria. Residents went about their lives when up above jets crossed the skies. Suddenly, a deadly plume of sarin gas descended upon the people. The mortal cloud spread about six miles wide and asphyxiated more than 80 residents while injuring close […]Continue Reading ...
June 29, 2018 Every day we are exposed to low levels of hundreds of different manmade chemicals present for example in our food, consumer products and the air we breathe. Our environment too is exposed to a near-infinite number of chemical mixtures derived from numerous sources. However, current safety assessment practice is primarily based on […]Continue Reading ...
April 24, 2018 Five years ago, a team of University of California San Diego neurobiologists published surprising findings describing how rats’ brain cells adopted new chemical codes when subjected to significant changes in natural light exposure–much as humans suffer from “winter blues,” the type of depression known as seasonal affective disorder. A new study implicates […]Continue Reading ...
March 16, 2018 Results from a new study led by Boston Medical Center (BMC) indicate that, when performed appropriately, chemical peels can be a safe treatment option for people with darker skin. The findings, first published online in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, show that less than four percent of people with […]Continue Reading ...
A research team led by Dr. Xiang David Li from the Department of Chemistry at The University of Hong Kong (HKU), in collaboration with scientists from Tsinghua University in China, The Rockefeller University, and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in the United States, developed the first chemical inhibitors against a novel therapeutic […]Continue Reading ...
Complex biological systems can be described as a network of chemical processes that take place in molecules. The scientists of the “ChemLife” research initiative at the University of Konstanz are working together in an equally active network with dynamic interconnections – both subject-specific and interdisciplinary. Recent insights into DNA polymerases acquired through interdisciplinary cooperation between […]Continue Reading ...
The chemical element sulfur is an important constituent in many pharmaceuticals and, consequently, it is desirable to be able to introduce sulfur-containing fragments efficiently in a broad range of chemical compounds. The Skrydstrup team provides an effective and safe way for introducing a small sulfur building block, which is generally difficult to work with, being […]Continue Reading ...
Scientists at the University of Bristol have demonstrated that resident artificial cells leave their protocell hosts when triggered by a chemical signal that causes them to behave antagonistically. The finding could help improve researchers’ understanding of how to design synthetic materials with life-like properties.

May 8, 2018 Cancer drops sparse chemical hints of its presence early on, but unfortunately, many of them are in a class of biochemicals that could not be detected thoroughly, until now. Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have engineered a chemical trap that exhaustively catches what are called glycoproteins, including minuscule traces that […]Continue Reading ...
3D chemical structure of bisphenol A. Credit: Edgar181 via Wikimedia Commons New research in mice provides an explanation for how exposure to the widely used chemical bisphenol A (BPA) during pregnancy, even at levels lower than the regulated “safe” human exposure level, can lead to altered brain development and behavior later in life. The research […]Continue Reading ...
