Nischarin regulates energy metabolism

Nischarin is a novel protein that is discovered by us. We demonstrated that it functions as a molecular scaffold that holds and interacts with several protein partners in a number of biological processes. Previously we have shown

Use flat shoes and increase neurogenesis!

When starting to walk the plantarflexor triceps surae muscle is inactivated, the dorsiflexor tibialis anterior activated, and we fall forward because of gravity. The first step is taken, and just as the foot leaves the ground, we

From waste dumping to clean energy: using our landfills for renewable energy

It is widely acknowledged that dumping our waste in landfills is extremely harmful to the environment. Landfills pollute our groundwater, our soils and release biogas (methane and carbon dioxide) into the atmosphere, which contributes greatly to global

Could a sick heart be treated with additional energy substance?

The heart is a muscle organ that by means of blood pumping provides continuously changing requirements in oxygen, energetic and building material to the tissues and organs. The heart in a couple of minutes could augment the

Safety first: Ammonia storage in nickel salts for safe and clean vehicles

Hydrogen is what many scientists believe to be the best replacement for fossil fuels in mobile applications such as cars. It contains a lot of energy, it can be used in fuel cells and using hydrogen produces

Just add water; boiling up high-performing thermoelectrics

Thermoelectric materials can realise direct conversion from thermal to electrical energy and offer unique opportunities to harvest useful electricity from waste heat. Tin selenide (SnSe) is one of the best thermoelectrics currently known as it combines an

A causality analysis between carbon dioxide emissions, GDP, energy use and population growth

Access to energy is one of the many ways of achieving higher levels of economic productivity in every technological and advancing country. Energy demand and economic development is increasing due to the requirement to meet basic human

A new phase change material for thermal energy storage

The technologies currently used to generate energy through renewable sources such as solar, wind and biomass are still characterized by high costs and insufficient continuity of generation. Such sources will therefore continue to have a secondary role
