Single-molecule techniques reveal new dynamics of protein folding associated with Alzheimer's disease progression

A new way to study protein folding & associated chaperons that saves proteins from non-native interaction, could help understand what exactly triggers the folding. The understanding could help track progression of diseases like cancer, Parkinsons and Alzheimer’s.

Molecular research shows path towards better treatment of kidney ailments

The molecular mechanism behind the effectiveness of N-Acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) and vitamin C, a medical combination used by doctors to treat kidney ailments, has been cracked in research conducted by a team of scientists. This study will help clinically treat chronic kidney ailments more effectively and help pharmaceutical research to develop better medicines.

A new alloy developed can act as alternative magnetic refrigerant for minimizing greenhouse gas emissions

Researchers have found a new alloy that can act as an effective magnetic refrigerant that can be an alternative cooling agent for minimizing greenhouse gas emissions and meet the global demand for higher energy efficiency for tackling global warming.

Efficient electrodes for superior supercapacitors synthesized

Scientists have synthesized a class of porous and crystalline organic materials called covalent organic frameworks (COFs) incorporated with quinone groups and sulphur-containing thiophene groups that can act as efficient and versatile electrodes for pseudocapacitors because of their low density, high stability, and well-defined atomic arrangements.
