Adhesion of gecko lizards to vertical surfaces is influenced by digital proteins

Mapping proteins localized. Atlas of Science

Some lizards, especially numerous species of geckos, are able to stick, walk and run along vertical or inverted surfaces, defeating gravity (Fig. 1 A). The nature of the subtrates is very variable in both physical and chemical

Receptors talking: solo vs chorus

Receptors talking: solo vs chorus. Atlas of Science

Multi-cell organisms, including humans, need reliable and timely communication between cells to function. Every cell is surrounded by the plasma membrane made of lipids, which separates it from the environment. Receptors localized on that membrane are proteins

Effect of electropulses on the plastic deformation during machining

Variation of chip thickness with cutting feed

The plastic deformation is a nuisance to study the machinability of materials in metal cutting processes. The high process efficiency can be achieved by minimizing the work done in the plastic deformation of chip. It was generally

Expression of mTOR-signalling pathway proteins in skin squamous-cell carcinomas before and after conversion to mTOR-inhibitors

Atlas of Science. Expression of mTOR-signalling pathway proteins in skin squamous-cell carcinomas

Inhibitors of the Mammalian Target of Rapamycin (mTORis) are drugs exerting both immunosuppressive and antitumor effects, and are thereby used in organ-transplant recipients (OTR) in order to both prevent allograft rejection and to reduce the risk of

Analysis of serum biomarkers and their correlation with pain and quality of life in the rare disease alkaptonuria

Analysis of serum biomarkers and their correlation with pain

Alkaptonuria (AKU) is an ultra-rare disease causing an early onset, chronically debilitating spondylo-arthropathy due to deposition of an ochronotic pigment in joints and spine, which causes severe pain and greatly reduces patients’ quality of life. Despite an

Impact of decontaminant and microbiological media on Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis

Effect of decontamination on the recovery of Map

Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (Map) has aetiological significance in Crohn’s disease of humans, and chronic intestinal disease in domestic and wild ruminants. This opportunistic pathogen can proliferate inside its host, whilst restricted to grow in the environment.

Are identical quantum twins distinguishable?

Entanglement in ordinary and no-label approaches

For twins, the identity is a “yes” or “not” intrinsic property: they can be identical (monozygous) or non-identical (heterozygous). Classical identical twins can always be distinguished (at least by their mother!). In fact, it is always possible

How do people’s expectations compare to the reality of their recovery after a knee replacement surgery?

Average recovery timeline

The decision to undergo a knee replacement is not one taken lightly by the patient or medical team. For many people with arthritis, medication and exercise therapies can help their symptoms, but when problems persist, a knee

Alcohol injections for the treatment of intermetatarsal neuromas

Alcohol injections for the treatment of intermetatarsal neuromas

Intermetatarsal neuromas, sometimes called Morton’s neuroma, cause nerve pain in the forefoot.  It arises due to entrapment of the nerve(s) supplying the toes(s) due to compression of the forefoot. Although any foot can be affected it’s uncommon
