APEC member economies have announced their nominees for the 2013 APEC Science Prize for Innovation, Research, and Education, also known as the ASPIRE Prize, sponsored by John Wiley & Sons, Inc., and Elsevier.
The AGU and Wiley announced today their partnership to publish the new open access peer-reviewed journal, Earth’s Future, which will begin accepting submissions on 17 June.
In the human body, lipids do not only serve as energy stores and structural elements, but they are also important signaling molecules. Disruptions of lipid signal transmission seem to be involved in diseases such as atherosclerosis and diabetes, as well as inflammation and pain. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, researchers from Heidelberg have now reported on photoactivatable lipids that can be used to manipulate signaling processes in cells with both spatial and time resolution.
The Fastest and the Brightest: BODIPY–tetrazine derivatives as superbright bioorthogonal turn-on probes
American researchers have developed a probe for marking biomolecules that begins to fluoresce only when it is “switched on” by binding. As reported in the journal Angewandte Chemie, the reaction takes place very quickly and the difference in brightness between the “on” and “off” states is two orders of magnitude bigger than for conventional activatable probes.
