Thermophilic bacterium degrades plastic efficiently

Clostridium thermocellum, a heat-resistant microbe found in leaf and branch compost piles, can degrade 60% of polyethylene terephthalate, a plastic used in packaging and drink bottles, in 14 days.

Metal-drug complexes trigger synergistic ferroptosis-apoptosis in cancer cells

Fe2+-doxorubicin complexes, delivered specifically to tumours via encapsulation in amorphous calcium carbonate (ACC)-based nanospheres, confer severe damage by inducing ferroptosis and apoptosis.

MRI-compatible graphene fibre microelectrode for deep brain stimulation

Graphene fibre microelectrodes with little-to-no image artifact have been developed, allowing for simultaneous deep brain stimulation and functional magnetic resonance imaging.

Ribosome gene DEF/UTP25 is essential for liver homeostasis and regeneration

Scientists from China elucidate the function of the def gene for the first time.

Evidence of mining activities polluting soil in Southwest China

Researchers found proof that mining disrupted the natural evolution of the distribution of chemical elements in the Zhaotong-Bijie-Yibin-Leshan-Luzhou area.

Scientists uncover mechanism of SARS-CoV-2 inhibition by Remdesivir

High-resolution cryo-EM structures of Remdesivir-bound SARS-CoV-2 have been imaged, providing mechanism insights and facilitating drug design efforts to combat the virus.

Cellulose nanofiber plate - the next exciting structural material

Scientists have devised a way to mass-produce environmentally friendly cellulose nanofiber plates at low cost with superior strength, toughness and thermal dimensional stability compared to metals.

Understanding the evolution from cloud to rain

The cloud water path of mature tropical cyclones can be estimated by a notable sigmoid function of near-surface rain rate, a study reveals.
