A new mutation in kidney disease

Osaka University researchers find an unexpected mutation in proteins of the exosome could be a valuable biomarker for diagnosing the risk of kidney disease


Solar Material for Producing Clean Hydrogen Fuel

Osaka University researchers create new material based on gold and black phosphorus to produce clean hydrogen fuel using the full spectrum of sunlight

A Japanese research team led by Osaka University developed a solar-active material for producing hydrogen fuel. The material is based on lanthanum tit...


A fish of all flavours

Japanese researchers achieve atomic resolution images of taste receptors in fish

Japanese researchers achieve atomic resolution images of taste receptors in fish. The structure explains why so few receptors are sufficient to sense ...


Calcium dynamics regulating the timing of decision-making in C. elegans

A tiny worm makes a decision by calculating mathematical integration

All animals make decisions according to information, but the detailed mechanism is not known. The researchers found that, a tiny worm chooses the dire...


The immune system promotes spontaneous heart regeneration

Osaka University scientists show the immune response to myocarditis promotes cardiomyocyte regeneration in mice. This regeneration is believed to be a...


Control of Material Crystallization by Agitation

Research team finds that oscillation of materials at a specific frequency markedly accelerates their crystallization

An Osaka University team found that oscillation of small particles in solution at a certain frequency accelerated their transition from a disordered a...


Novel Method to Study Quantum Fluctuations in Exotic Phases of Matter

An Osaka University-led international research team finds link between quantum fluctuations and the effective charge of current carrying particles to understand exotic phases of matter

An Osaka University-led international research team demonstrated that the effective charge of current carrying particles can be used to quantify quant...


Novel Mode of Antidepressant Action May Help Patients Unresponsive to SSRIs

Osaka University research has identified a serotonin type 3 receptor activator with antidepressant effects in mice that functions independently of SSRIs

Research at Osaka University identified a novel mode of action for a potential antidepressant that also leads to nerve cell growth in the mouse hippoc...


First Luminescent Molecular System with a Lower Critical Solution Temperature

Osaka University researchers develop a tunable luminescent mixture that changes color and reversibly switches from a solution to a suspension when heated

Osaka University researchers developed a luminescent small-molecule system that changes from a solution to a suspension when heated. The solubility ch...


Exploring the Conversion of Heat to Electricity in Single Molecules

Japanese team investigates how geometry affects electricity generation from heat by single-molecule devices

Researchers at Osaka University investigated the influence of the geometry of single-molecule devices on their ability to produce electricity from hea...
