2-Billion-Year-Old Sea Salt Captures Earth’s ‘Great Oxidation’
An international research team led by a Princeton University scientist has found that the rise in oxygen that occurred about 2.3 billion years ago (Paleoproterozoic era) — known as the Great Oxidation Event — was much more substantial than previously indicated. “Instead of a trickle, it was more like a firehose. It was a major [...]

New Genetic Cause of Posterior Polymorphous Corneal Dystrophy Discovered
A new genetic cause of an autosomal-dominant corneal endothelial dystrophy has been discovered in a study led by University College London scientists. Corneal endothelial dystrophies are a group of inherited eye disorders which affect the endothelium, a thin single layer of specialized cells that line the back of the cornea, can lead to severe sight [...]

Flexible ultrasound patch could make it easier to inspect damage in odd-shaped structures
Researchers have developed a stretchable, flexible patch that could make it easier to perform ultrasound imaging on odd-shaped structures, such as engine parts, turbines, reactor pipe elbows and railroad tracks -- objects that are difficult to examine using conventional ultrasound equipment. The ultrasound patch is a versatile and more convenient tool to inspect machine and building parts for defects and damage deep below the surface.

Bystander T cells can steal the show in resolving inflammation
New research reveals that bystander cell accumulation antagonizes rather than abets cell-killing by specific CTLs, curbing inflammation. The finding is noteworthy because that chief anti-inflammatory role has been traditionally ascribed to what are called regulatory T cells, or 'Tregs,' which dampen autoimmune responses. The new study challenges this notion and suggests alternate mechanisms can also be at work.
