'Atmospheric detergent' to be investigated in Antarctica

An international team of scientists is preparing to build a temporary lab on an Antarctic ice sheet, as part of a project to reveal how much a natural ‘atmospheric detergent’ cleans the air of harmful trace gases.

Structure of protein pair could guide drug development

Researchers at Walter and Eliza Hall Institute have visualised how the protein SOCS1 ‘switches off’ cell signalling to dampen immune responses and block cancer growth. The atomic-level structure of SOCS1 binding to its partner protein JAK may guide the development of new drugs that modify JAK activity, amplifying or dampening cell responses, with potential applications in cancer therapies. T...

Wild yeasts may improve wine from warmer climates

A research team led by the University of Adelaide has found yeasts that naturally occur on grapes may improve wines produced in warmer climates — despite the fact that the use of these ‘wild’ yeasts during the production process has mostly been discouraged by winemakers. As explained by Dr Ana Hranilovic, a recent PhD graduate from the university’s ARC Training Centre for Innovative Wine ...
