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

Akhilesh Yadav meets family of youth killed in encounter, lashes out at govt

first_imgSamajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav visited the home of a youth who was killed in a police encounter over alleged illegal sand mining, and lashed out at the BJP government, saying he had no trust in the state police and the administration.Mr. Yadav on Wednesday met the family members of Pushpendra Yadav, who was killed last week.“Not much should be expected from the police force of a state where the chief minister openly asks them to ‘thok dalo’ (shoot) those taking law in their own hands,” he said.“I have no faith in the police and administration of the state,” Mr. Akhilesh said. The BJP hit back at him on Wednesday, saying he was more concerned about the sand mining mafia and caste arithmetic.“It was an encounter but Akhilesh has to go to the person’s house because he is in love with the sand mining mafia and has to take care of caste equation. But he does not care how the sand mining mafia should be eradicated. This is precisely why he was thrown out by the people in elections,” senior BJP leader Siddharth Nath Singh said. Alleging that the police killed the youth in Jhansi last week in a staged gunfight, the SP president reiterated his demand for lodging of a murder case against the SHO involved and a probe into the incident by a sitting high court judge.“No one believes the police’s theory on the encounter. Actually it is not an encounter but a murder by the police. The family members have not even got the postmortem report,” he claimed, adding that the police should not have had any objection to the family’s demand of filing a case.“It is surprising that even the last rites were performed by the police without the family members. Is this Ram Rajya?” Mr. Yadav asked. He alleged that there had been many such killings in Sonebhadhra, Saharanpur, Noida, Azamgarh and Shamli and the people had no faith in the probe by the government and administration.“It is very unfortunate that the government and administration are together in saving the police station incharge. There appears to be some big conspiracy behind this,” he said.Mr. Yadav said that he has assured the family all possible help.“There are many loopholes in the police story. The incident has sparked protests in the area,” he stressed. Mr. Yadav’s allegations of “loopholes” in the story come in the backdrop of statements by the Jhansi SSP and the SHO about the encounter. While Jhansi SSP OP Singh had told reporters on the night of the encounter that the thana incharge was returning in his private vehicle after vacation when the incident took place, the SHO concerned said that he was on patrol at the time of incident.The police claimed that Pushpendra ran a sand mining business and was shot dead on Sunday by a police team after he opened fire at the police inspector who had seized his truck used for sand mining, a few days earlier. The family members of the deceased alleged that the police officer in charge of the area, Dharmendra Chauhan, was demanding ₹1.5 lakh bribe to release the youth’s truck and he killed Yadav when he refused to pay and threatened to expose him.last_img read more

10 months agoNeville: Solskjaer personality just what Man Utd need

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Neville: Solskjaer personality just what Man Utd needby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United legend Gary Neville says the personality of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is just what Old Trafford needs.The Norwegian took over a United’s interim manager on Wednesday following the sacking of Jose Mourinho and faces his first match at another former club, Cardiff City, on Saturday evening.Neville told Sky Sports, “He is so popular, he is one of the most popular players that exists at Manchester United in terms of what he achieved at the club and that goal in 1999.”He is a gentleman, he really is. He is a good person and has immersed himself in coaching. When he finished as a player he obviously became the reserve team coach at Manchester United. He wanted to learn the ropes.”He will be better for that experience at Cardiff. We have a stigma in this country of managers that have been sacked.”What it means is he is more mature and more experienced after having that experience.” last_img read more

It’s going to be a difficult match, but the objective is to start 2019 lifting a trophy above our heads.” last_img read more

Assam NRC SC orders list of exclusion be published only online on

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court ordered on Tuesday that the list of those excluded from the final Assam NRC be published only online on August 31. A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice R F Nariman said that like Aadhaar data, an appropriate regime be enacted for securing the Assam National Register of Citizens (NRC) data. The apex court also said that the ongoing Assam NRC exercise, which is being monitored by the apex court, cannot be ordered to be reopened on the basis of certain legal challenges raised before it. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details It had earlier said that the final Assam NRC would be published on or by August 31. It had also brushed aside criticism and statements made in the Assam Assembly and outside relating to the exercise carried out for NRC and had asked the Centre to adhere to the deadline of August 31. The court had said that it was not bothered about what was being said about the NRC and was only looking at the entire exercise of NRC being completed within the deadline of August 31. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday On July 23, the top court had extended the deadline for publication of the final NRC in Assam by a month to August 31 while rejecting the pleas seeking permission for 20 per cent sample re-verification. The Centre and the Assam government had sought permission for sample re-verification to find out wrongful inclusions, especially in districts bordering Bangladesh, and exclusions of persons in the NRC which was to be published by July 31. The first draft of the NRC for Assam was published on the intervening night of December 31, 2017 and January 1, 2018 in accordance with the top court’s direction. Names of 1.9 crore people out of the 3.29 crore applicants were incorporated then. Assam, which had faced influx of people from Bangladesh since the early 20th century, is the only state having an NRC which was first prepared in 1951.last_img read more

Local Police Notice Influx Of Failure To Appear Arrests Following New Legislation

first_imgSgt. Cushman: “We find people who have a warrant and when we go to contact them they are sometimes in the act of committing another crime.” According to Sergeant Paul Cushman with KPD they noticed an influx of ‘failure to appear’ arrests since the first of the year: “We have seen an increase in our warrant arrests, many of those related to failure to appear for their court dates. We don’t have statistical information to say that it’s directly related to any new legislation, but they have seemed to coincide timing wise.” On February 17, KPD reported four separate arrests where they were dispatched to a crime in progress and ultimately arrested individuals at the scene with outstanding warrants. Sgt. Cushman: “Certainly there are a lot more people being released without a bail, and are essentially just given a court date, and are released after being arrested. So, rather than being held in jail until their court date they are being released, and then obviously not showing up “failing to appear” and so warrants are issued for their arrests.” The purpose of the program is to use a data-based, validated risk assessment took to make a recommendation to the court on conditions of release. The recommendation is based on two factors: the likelihood that the defendant will attend their court hearings and the likelihood that they defendant will engage in new criminal activity if released. But, ultimately, the decision is up to the judge.last_img read more
