Proteins Conduct Electricity

first_img(Visited 582 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 A remarkable finding at the single-molecule level shows a protein can conduct a large amount of electricity.A press release from the University of Cardiff describes how researchers isolated a single protein molecule and measured the passage of a current when placed between electrodes.  This could represent a fundamental property of proteins that might explain their function.  Two collaborators at the university said, “The highly conducting nature of this protein was a surprise and the result raises questions about the fundamental nature of electron transfer in proteins.”  Could it be that proteins operate as transistors?The team showed that the protein could carry large currents, equivalent to a human hair carrying one amp. The team also discovered that current flow could be regulated in much the same way as transistors, the tiny devices driving computers and smartphones, work but on a smaller scale: the proteins are only a quarter of the size of current silicon based transistors.The finding represents a leap forward in measurement at the nano scale.  “Prior to this work, measurement of millions, if not billions of proteins was only possible, so losing crucial details of how an individual molecule functions.” The team used scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) to read the electronics of a single molecule of cytochrome b562, a protein just 5 nanometers (billions of a meter) long.While the focus of the press release was on human engineering of this conductance for nanotechnology, the discovery may elucidate how the cell’s protein machines work.  PhysOrg‘s headline was, “Electronics of nature’s nano machines.”  Its summary reads, “A team from the Cardiff University’s Schools of Biosciences and Physics and Astronomy have made a breakthrough in our understanding of proteins – the workhorse molecules of the cell and nature’s very own nano machines.”Details of the research have been published as a series of papers in the journals Nano Letters, ACS Nano, Small and Nanoscale, the press release indicated.While it’s premature to compare proteins to human electrical tools, it is known that electron or proton transfer is essential to some of them, such as photosynthesis, ATP synthase and other machines in the respiratory chain.  What about the motor proteins dynein, kinesin, and myosin?  What about the flagellar motor, mitochondrial machines and DNA transcription and translation machines?  How is ATP energy transduced into proteins’  mechanical actions?  This is a discovery to watch.  If your own cells can be someday described as electronic machines, wouldn’t that be cool?last_img read more

100cm Long Hair Heat Resistant Straight Cosplay Wig : Nice wig, the colour is beatiful

first_imgBeloved this wig although due to the fact of size is a little bit. Loved this wig even though due to the fact of length is a bit hard to retain on devoid of slipping off whilst it makes up for that with fantastic hidden straps.Extremely pleased with the wig just like it stated in description.

But it is way too limited, i couldn’t expend in it for a longer time than 3 hrs.I’d suggest two and then sew them with each other like i generally. Duration, color and excellent were location on. A small slender for my liking, so if your character has thick hair, i might recommend two and then sew them together like i usually do.Regrettably the web comes by means of fairly prominently from time to time depending on in which hair sits, as it is pretty thin. But excellent and arrives with a significant fringe so you can slice one particular to match your facial area :).Great lengthbe forewarned it knots. Appears to be like great for a number of seconds tthe knots llike the knots in a brownie manual e book. Seeking to model it for my costume.

For the cost it it you cannot go wrong, i completely appreciate it and cannot wait for halloween now. No down sides, but it is a lil challenging placing it on.

Pretty cool colour, and pretty great, a little bit thn but i wore a hat so it was no problem for my cosplaybut a quite gd wig,.last_img read more

Arizona Solar Installations Slow

first_imgUtility and regulators discuss renewable requirementsIn Arizona, a complicating issue is how Arizona Public Service will meet state requirements that a certain percentage of its electricity come from renewable sources. For this year, that’s set at 4.5%, 1.4 % of which must come from rooftop solar or other “distributed” sources, The Republic reported. The renewable requirement rises to 15% by 2025.The utility has enough solar customers now to meet requirements through 2016.The rub is a requirement in the 2006 law requiring Arizona Public Service to get renewable-energy credits (RECs) from rooftop solar in order to comply. The utility initially paid rebates to customers who installed solar and in the process acquired the RECs for their solar panels. But rebates are no longer offered, and as a result Arizona Public Service no longer gets the RECs.The utility and state regulators are currently discussing how the requirement will be met in the future. Spain struggles with the same issueThe debate over net-metering and the impact of residential PV installations isn’t limited to the U.S. In Spain, the government is cutting compensation for solar installations. Large photovoltaic plants will see the biggest reductions, up to 45% of current payments, according to the website Solar Server.A group called the National Association of Photovoltaic Energy Producers says the new policy will affect 55,000 Spanish families who invested in solar and could force some of them into bankruptcy because they borrowed heavily to make the installations.One of them, whose story appeared in The New York Times last month, mortgaged his house, his father’s house, and his workshop in order to install a PV system. He based the investment on government promises of generous rates for the energy he produced.The government about-face will cost the Spanish investor everything he has.Spain is proposing other measures, including a fee on electricity that solar producers generate and use themselves, which opponents call the “sun tax.” The number of new rooftop photovoltaic (PV) installations in the area covered by the Arizona Public Service Company is dropping, and the vice president of a California company that finances solar leases says a new monthly fee for photovoltaic systems is the culprit.According to a report in The Republic, the number of rooftop installations fell from 583 in January of last year to 280 last month.Bryan Miller, vice president for public policy and power markets for Sunrun, blamed the drop on the fee that was adopted last November and went into effect at the start of the year.“You have an industry that is in grave pain in Arizona,” he told The Republic. “It is in stark contrast with what is going on in the rest of the solar industry.”Arizona Public Service, like several other electric utilities around the country, have voiced concerns that the growing number of residential photovoltaic installations is unfairly shifting the cost of maintaining the grid to non-solar customers. Its arguments last year before state regulators that customers with PV systems weren’t paying their fair share led to the new fee.According to the website Utility Dive, state regulators agreed to impose the fee of 70 cents per kilowatt, or roughly $5 per month for an average installation, on customers who install PV systems beginning this year. But it did not affect the 20,000 customers who already had them.The fee voted in by the Arizona Corporation Commission was the first of its kind in the U.S., but the utility said it “fell well short” of what it needed, Utility Dive reported.Net-metering rules, by which utility customers sell excess power produced by their PV systems, were left unchanged. According to information posted at DSIRE, an online data base, owners of PV systems get paid the retail rate for excess electricity.last_img read more
