Gene responsible for brain tumour radiation resistance identified

American molecular biologists have found that high activity of the ZMYND8 gene protects many forms of glioma – malignant brain tumours – from being destroyed by radiotherapy. Suppression of this gene made the culture of tumour bodies vulnerable to radiation – as reported in the press service of the University of Michigan, TASS reports Photo: University Professor Pedro R. Lowenstein noted that increased activity of the ZMYND8 gene protects glioma cells with a mutation in the ...

US scientists created nanocatalyst able to split water with record high efficiency

American physicists have developed a nanocatalyst based on compounds of chromium, rhodium, cobalt, indium and gallium, which is able to use about 9 percent of the total energy of sunlight to split water molecules and produce oxygen and hydrogen. In this respect it surpasses already existing photocatalysts, according to the press service of the University of Michigan, TASS reports.
