Study points to new drug target in fight against cancer

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

In a study this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, an international team of researchers describe how a cancer-linked version of the protein mitoNEET can close the primary gateways in the outer surface of mitochondria, the “power plants” that supply with chemical energy. These gateways, or “voltage-dependent anion channels” (VDACs), normally open and close to allow the passage of metabolites and other small molecules between mitochondria and the rest of the cell.

“The VDAC channel transports all types of metabolites between the cytosol and the mitochondria,” said study co-author José Onuchic, a physicist and co-director of Rice University’s Center for Theoretical Biological Physics (CTBP). “Dysfunction of this channel is involved in many diseases including cancer and .”

Traumatic Brain Injury Causes Intestinal Damage

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

Researchers have identified a link between traumatic brain injury and intestinal changes. A new study reports the intestinal changes may contribute to increased risk of developing infections and could worsen brain damage in TBI patients.

Energy Shield powered by Wikia

Posted by in category: energy

The earliest form was used by a member of the Raiders and later adopted by Iron Man. These emitted photons into a small round shape and were generally a supplement to the rest of their armor’s defenses.[1]

U.S.Agent received a photon shield when he joined Force Works; it could be activated by voice command.[2] Around this time S.H.I.E.L.D. produced its own design using cooled plasma. Captain America briefly used the plasma shield while in exile. Not only were they useful protection, but the shields could be used as controllable projectile weapons.[3]

On Counter-Earth, Rebecca Barnes used a Vibranium-powered triangular energy shield.[citation needed].

S.H.I.E.L.D. Introduces Captain America’s Energy Shield

Posted by in categories: energy, singularity

On Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., w hen Leo Fitz gave Director Coulson a new cybernetic hand to replace the one he left with Grant Ward’s corpse on the alien planet in “Maveth,” he teased the hand had a few surprises hidden inside. It turns out one of those surprises is a very cool artifact from the Marvel Comics Universe, which we saw in the episode “The Singularity.”

In the episode, Coulson and Agent May went looking for Daisy Johnson and Hive at the home of James, an Inhuman who formerly resided at Afterlife. By the time Coulson’s crew arrived, Hive and his growing Inhuman army had already fled the scene, but they left some explosives behind in the house. The quick thinking S.H.I.E.L.D. director pulled May down into a hole in the floor, where Daisy had unearthed an ancient Kree artifact, and shielded himself and May from the blast with…well, a shield.

The energy shield was formed by his cybernetic hand, with a S.H.I.E.L.D. logo on the center. Coulson tells May that he thought it would cool for the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. to actually have a shield, but it may be some of Coulson’s Captain America hero worship coming to the forefront.

IBM opens Quantum Computation Center on Poughkeepsie campus

Posted by in categories: computing, finance, quantum physics

The previously “impossible to solve” problems for some of the biggest financial, technological and academic institutions will soon be solved in Poughkeepsie.

That’s according to IBM, which announced the opening of its first Quantum Computing Center on Wednesday, based on its Poughkeepsie campus.

Quantum computing is “nothing short of a revolution for how we are going to process information,” Director of IBM Research Dario Gil said. While computers have traditionally processed binary code — a collection of ones and zeroes — quantum computers, he said, process information in qubits, or quantum bits.
