Scientists crack structure of a novel enzyme linked to cell growth and cancer

08-Nov-2019

RNA, or ribonucleic acid, is present in the cells of all living beings and required to synthesize proteins. A research team at the University of California, Riverside, has discovered the structure of a novel RNA-modifying enzyme, ZCCHC4, and identified the mechanism that controls how this enzyme ...

Fiber-optic probe can see molecular bonds

Pointing the new nanoscopy tool like a Harry Potter wand reveals a high-resolution image of molecules

12-Jun-2019

In "Avengers: Endgame," Tony Stark warned Scott Lang that sending him into the quantum realm and bringing him back would be a "billion-to-one cosmic fluke." In reality, shrinking a light beam to a nanometer-sized point to spy on quantum-scale light-matter interactions and retrieving the ...

Musical sensor shows bad medicine plays false note

Inspired by a musical instrument, the simple sensor can be constructed from common materials and used to detect adulterated or counterfeit drugs

17-Sep-2018

What if a single musical note could mean the difference between life and death? A new sensor based on a 3,000 year old African musical instrument can be used to identify substances, including a poisonous chemical sometimes mistakenly added to medicines. The mbira sensor, which can be constructed ...

A better way to control crystal vibrations

23-May-2018

The vibrational motion of an atom in a crystal propagates to neighboring atoms, which leads to wavelike propagation of the vibrations throughout the crystal. The way in which these natural vibrations travel through the crystalline structure determine fundamental properties of the material. For ...

New research by UCR physicists could help develop gamma ray lasers and produce fusion power

Researchers isolate collection of “pure” or spin polarized positronium atoms for the first time

04-May-2010

Positronium is a short-lived system in which an electron and its anti-particle are bound together. In 2007, physicists at the University of California, Riverside created molecular positronium , a brand-new substance, in the laboratory. Now they have succeeded in isolating for the first time a ...
