Gut microbes eat our medication

Posted: 13 Jun 2019 11:36 AM PDT

Researchers have discovered one of the first concrete examples of how the microbiome can interfere with a drug's intended path through the body. Focusing on levodopa (L-dopa), the primary treatment for Parkinson's disease, they identified which bacteria out of the trillions of species is responsible for degrading the drug and how to stop this microbial interference.

Viruses found to use intricate 'treadmill' to move cargo across bacterial cells

Using advanced technologies to explore the inner workings of bacteria, biologists have provided the first example of cargo within bacteriophage cells transiting along treadmill-like structures. The discovery demonstrates that bacteria have more in common with sophisticated human cells than previously believed.

Squid could thrive under climate change

Posted: 13 Jun 2019 09:37 AM PDT

When scientists subjected two-toned pygmy squid and bigfin reef squid to carbon dioxide levels projected for the end of the century, they received some surprising results.

Earth's heavy metals result of supernova explosion, research reveals

Posted: 13 Jun 2019 09:10 AM PDT

New research suggests most of Earth's heavy metals were spewed from a largely overlooked kind of star explosion called a collapsar.

Bitcoin causing carbon dioxide emissions comparable to Las Vegas or Hamburg

Posted: 13 Jun 2019 07:45 AM PDT

The use of Bitcoin causes around 22 megatons in carbon dioxide emissions annually -- comparable to the total emissions of cities such as Las Vegas or Hamburg.

Zebras' stripes could be used to control their temperature, study reveals

Posted: 13 Jun 2019 07:31 AM PDT

New research indicates that zebras' stripes are used to control body temperature after all -- and reveals for the first time a new mechanism for how this may be achieved.

Two hours a week is key dose of nature for health and wellbeing

Posted: 13 Jun 2019 06:52 AM PDT

Spending at least two hours a week in nature may be a crucial threshold for promoting health and wellbeing, according to a new large-scale study.
