Nuclear pore complex outer rings: no longer “one size fits all”

A team led by researchers from Osaka University and NICT finds that, contrary to popular belief, the outer rings of eukaryotic cell nuclear pore complexes are asymmetrical rather than perfectly identical

In eukaryotic cells, molecules can only move into or out of the nucleus through specialized channels called nuclear pore complexes (NPCs). Each NPC ha...

Applying pressure is way toward generating more electricity from waste heat

Researchers apply pressure to a thermoelectric material to better understand quantum phenomena and in doing so are able to increase the material's ability to produce electricity from waste heat by 100%

The ability of a thermoelectric material to produce electricity from waste heat was improved more than twofold by a Japan-based research team led by O...

Immunotherapy and Diabetes: A Game of Hide and Seek?

Researchers at Osaka University investigate a unique patient case to shed light on why some cancer patients taking immunotherapy end up with type 1 diabetes

Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) are emerging as an effective treatment for certain cancers, but in rare cases can cause autoimmune diseases. Resea...


Plot Twist: Straightening Single-Molecule Conductors Improves their Performance

Researchers at Osaka University synthesize and measure the electronic properties of an insulated molecular wire in both its flat and twisted conformations

Researchers at Osaka University synthesized nanowires made of a single molecule of oligothiophene up to 10 nanometers in length. By forcing the molecu...
