Researchers have used a colorful, cell-labeling technique to track the development of the blood system and trace the lineage of adult blood cells traveling through the vast networks of veins, arteries, and capillaries back to their parent stem cell in the marrow. Their findings contribute to the understanding of blood development as well as blood diseases.
Scientists report that they have created the first intermetallic double salt with platinum. Cesium platinide hydride, or 4Cs2Pt?CsH, forms a translucent ruby red crystal and can exist only in an inert environment similar to conditions that exist in outer space. It’s a new member of a rare family of compounds in which a metal forms a truly negatively charged ion.
Researchers have found a way to pause the development of early mouse embryos for up to a month in the lab, a finding with potential implications for assisted reproduction, regenerative medicine, aging and even cancer, the authors say.
Engineers have found a simple and inexpensive new approach to creating bending artificial muscle fibers. Artificial muscles -- materials that contract and expand somewhat like muscle fibers do -- can have many applications, from robotics to components in the automobile and aviation industries.
Scientists have discovered a huge reduction in an African dust plume that led to more Saharan monsoons 11,000 years ago, suggests a new report.
