Blocking STAT5 in conjunction with standard tyrosine kinase inhibitor drugs could be a powerful one-two punch that kills leukemic cells.
Understanding the Eucalyptus genome could improve the oil producing characteristics and pest resistance of the world’s most widely planted hardwood.
Wearable electronics of the future could be powered by self-healing capacitors developed at NTU, which retain up to 85 percent of their electrical performance even after being cut five times.
The over-expression of the gene ACBP6 helped Arabidopsis flowers to better survive sub-zero temperatures, a method that could be extended to protect other flowering plants.
Scientists have identified the gene TUBB5 that regulates the microtubule scaffold in neurons, thereby playing an important role in healthy brain development.
The specificity of the tRNA synthetase enzyme, and consequently protein translation, is due to geometric features determined by a single base pair known as the wobble base pair.
By detecting the changes in pH as underground sea worms breathe, Japanese catfish are able to find their prey even in murky water.
Understanding the intracellular transport pathways to the vacuole could lead to the development of better nutrient storage in plants.
Scientists have shown that bees can use polarisation patterns to identify flowers and improve foraging efficiency, but only if the flowers face downwards.
Disruption of hydrogen sulphide signalling in pregnant mice leads to poor embryo transport to the uterus and may be the cause of ectopic pregnancies in humans.
