18:07 Aps.org Editors' SuggestionsNature of the excited states of layered systems and molecular excimers: Exciplex states and their dependence on structure

Author(s): Marie-Christin Heissenbüttel, Philipp Marauhn, Thorsten Deilmann, Peter Krüger, and Michael Rohlfing Chemically inert objects (e.g., noble-gas atoms) can show covalent-like excimer bonding when excited electronically. Analogous exciplex states are observed in layered materials such as graphite or transition-metal dichalcogenides. Here, the authors show by ab initio many-body perturbation theory that such exciplex states result from a delicate balance between on-site (or intralayer) and charge-transfer (or interlayer) electron-hole configurations. Both molecular systems and layered materials exhibit a characteristic relationship between geometric structure and excitation energetics.

16:46 Phys.orgScientists develop novel method to monitor molecular aggregation

Chiral molecules are defined as molecules that are non-superimposable on their mirror images, much like that of left and right human hand bone structure. There are many examples of chiral molecules in nature, including proteins and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). The dynamic processes of these chiral molecules are highly significant to understanding their biological activity. Indeed, protein aggregation is associated with many pathological conditions, including Alzheimer's disease, which is caused by the build-up of beta-amyloid fragments within the brain over time. Thus, it is important to understand and observe such (chiral) molecular aggregation and conformation over time.

20:10 StemCellsPortal.comlEnzyme might provide ‘molecular radar’ for early detection of cancers

SAN DIEGO, CA (US), January 2019 — Researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine report that detection of “copy editing” by a stem cell enzyme called ADAR1, which is active in more than 20 tumor types, may provide a kind of molecular radar for early detection of malignancies and represent a new therapeutic target for preventing cancer cell resistance to chemotherapy and radiation.
Adenosine deaminases are a family of three enzymes encoded by the ADAR genes, which stand for adenosine deaminase acting on RNA. They regulate gene expression by modifying nucleotides within double stranded RNA molecules, serving as fundamental editors in the development of new stem cells.
The enzyme, however, is also activated in cancers as diverse as liver, breast and leukemia. A research team led by senior author Catriona Jamieson, M.D., Ph.D., deputy director of the Sanford

The team has identified a molecule in neurons that, when blocked, improves motor function in older worms and increases their lifespan and general health. Better yet, similar pathways might be at work inside humans too.

Molecular motors, which rotate unidirectionally in response to an external energy input, constitute an important class of components for future applications in the field of nanotechnology. Molecules whose structure and spatial conformation can be altered by light are particularly promising candidates for this task. However, all light-driven molecular motors so far described are dependent on reactions that require the input of heat and are therefore dependent on a certain minimum environmental temperature. LMU chemist Henry Dube has now achieved a decisive breakthrough in this respect. Together with his student Aaron Gerwien, he has developed the first molecular motor that rotates on exposure to light alone, irrespective of the temperature. Not only is its operation not conditional on a specific minimum temperature – it actually rotates faster at lower temperatures. This unique characteristic

23:52 Phys.orgDetecting E. coli strains using molecular electronics

Finding a fast and inexpensive way to detect specific strains of bacteria and viruses is critical to food safety, water quality, environmental protection and human health. However, current methods for detecting illness-causing strains of bacteria such as E. coli require either time-intensive biological cell cultures or DNA amplification approaches that rely on expensive laboratory equipment.

21:10 ScienceDaily.comNeuroscientists find molecular clue in ALS, suggesting potential new drug target

Researchers have uncovered a link between motor neurons' inability to repair oxidative genome damage in ALS, suggesting that DNA ligase-targeted therapies may prevent or slowdown disease progression. The defect found was with DNA ligase III, an important enzyme for connecting single-stranded DNA breaks in mature neurons that, once worn out, are no longer capable of new growth or being replenished in the body.
