Scientists achieved the groundbreaking detection of neutrinos generated within a particle collider, marking the first direct observation of collider-produced neutrinos. These elusive subatomic particles, known as “ghost particles,” typically traverse matter without interacting due to their negligible mass and lack of electric charge. The discovery was made possible using the FASERnu detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The detection, now officially documented in two peer-reviewed papers, offers insights into neutrino formation, properties, and their role in the universe’s evolution. Neutrinos, highly abundant yet elusive, are crucial for unraveling mysteries of particle astrophysics, expanding the LHC’s scientific potential.
The cyclic cyclic guanosine monophosphate-adenosine monophosphate synthase-stimulator of interferon genes (cGAS)-stimulator of interferon genes (STING) pathway is important in innate immune response and has been linked to cardiovascular inflammation, remodeling, and degeneration. Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are a leading cause of death worldwide. Inflammation is a key factor in the development and progression of CVDs. The […]
Exciting breakthrough in cancer research! 🌟 Scientists have discovered a key link between cancer cells and replication stress, unveiling the role of Taurine Upregulated Gene 1 (TUG1). Targeting TUG1 with a drug, researchers developed TUG1-DDS, significantly controlling brain tumor growth in mice, particularly glioblastomas. Lead researcher Professor Yutaka Suzuki highlights the potential for therapeutic applications, […]
Electrical stimulation of stick insect leg muscles can be used to control their movement, with a nearly linear relationship between the duration of stimulation and the torque generated. This could be used to refine the motor control of tuned biohybrid robots, making their movements more precise. However, further testing is needed to implement this in […]
