‘She’s my soulmate’: My childhood BFF is still my best friend

How a close and enduring relationship forged in the school playground turned my life aroundMy school bully came in an unlikely package.

I met her on the first day at our large and rowdy comprehensive school. With all my existing friends assigned to different forms, I was on high alert for someone to attach myself to as soon as possible. Wi...

Physics’ greatest mystery: Michio Kaku explains the God Equation

"It's no exaggeration to say that the greatest minds of the entire human race have made proposals for this grand final theory of everything," says theoretical physicist Michio Kaku. This theory, also known as the God Equation, would unify all the basic concepts of physics into one. According to Kaku, the best, most "mathematically consistent" candidate so far is string theory, but there are objections."The biggest objection is you can't test it," Kaku explains, "but we're getting closer and clos...

Global travelers pick up numerous genes that promote microbial resistance

Research from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis shows that international travelers often return home with new bacterial strains jostling for position among the thousands that normally reside within the gut microbiome. Such travel is contributing to the rapid global increase and spread of antimicrobial resistance.

Climate change increases extreme rainfall and the chance of floods

An international research team have concluded that increases in extreme rainfall and associated flooding are projected to continue as global temperatures continue to rise. Efforts to limit warming to +1.5C will help limit changes in extreme rainfall, though some societal adaptations will still be required.

The ACCOLADE study on C3 glomerulopathy

C3 glomerulopathy is a rare disease in which the deposition of C3 protein causes severe inflammation of the glomeruli, which can progress to end stage kidney disease requiring dialysis or transplantation. A new study demonstrates that the inflammatory C5a receptor can be selectively blocked with avacopan. This targeted intervention in the immune system is much less risky than general immunosuppression.

Cells/colony motion index of oral keratinocytes predicts epithelial regenerative capacity

Cells/colony motion of oral keratinocytes was non-invasively and quantitatively determined by optical flow algorithm. As per the distinct cell growth kinetics, modified optic flow algorithm was applied with fewer full-screening imaging analyses & cell segmentations, which confirmed the association of proliferative capacity & epithelial regenerative capacity with mean motion speed (MMS). The index of MMS was identified to detect the substandard population, prior to human clinical use, which may ...

Mechanisms of kidney protection by gliflozins

SGLT2 inhibitors (gliflozins) are oral anti-diabetic drugs. They not only reduce blood sug-ar, but also improve cardiovascular and renal outcomes -- not only in type 2 diabetics, but also in non-diabetics. This benefit cannot be due to lower blood sugar levels per se; however, it is not yet known how these positive effects are actually mediated. A recent study has now discovered correlations with the hematocrit value.

Regulation of protein homeostasis by cardiac glycosides

The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a pivotal mechanism to mitigate protein homeostasis through transcriptional or translational control. On the other hand, since dysregulation of UPR has been associated with various human diseases, the compounds modulating UPR can clarify the pathological significance of the UPR.
