Temporary salt crystals may provide a permanent solution to Alzheimer’s

Osaka University researchers show that salt crystals can precipitate at low concentrations owing to local density fluctuation and their repeated precipitation-dissolution behavior promotes aggregation of Amyloid-β peptides implicated in Alzheimer’s disease

Researchers at Osaka University have demonstrated that precipitation of a salt crystal occurs even at concentrations much lower than its solubility du...


Old X-Rays, New Vision: A Nano-Focused X-Ray Laser

Researchers enhance the accuracy of X-ray free-electron laser measurements closer to the diameter of typical atoms than previously possible

Researchers at Osaka University, in collaboration with RIKEN and Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute (JASRI), have focused the beam of an X...


Virtual demolition

Scientists at Osaka University develop an augmented reality algorithm for viewing landscapes with buildings and/or pedestrians digitally removed, which may become standard for urban planning in busy areas with many distractions present

Scientists at Osaka University show how buildings and moving objects can be virtually removed from real-time images in a process of “diminished realit...

Ultrasonic technique discloses the identity of graphite

A group of scientists evaluated the interplanar bond strength of graphene by measuring the elastic constant of graphite, demonstrating that the elastic constant of monocrystalline graphite was higher than conventionally believed

A group of researchers, led by Osaka University, created a high-quality defect-free monocrystalline graphite, and measured the elastic constant, demon...

Catch and release: collagen-mediated control of PEDF availability

Researchers led by Osaka University show that collagen maturation regulates the availability of PEDF, a secreted protein that influences whether a cell lives or dies

Extracellular ligand PEDF holds cell fate in its hands, inducing cell death or promoting survival depending on which host cell receptor it binds to. H...

It takes a neutron beam to find a proton

Researchers from Osaka University use neutron crystallography to pinpoint hydrogen atoms and protons in the structure of a large enzyme and reveal previously unreported behavior

Researchers from Osaka University have successfully determined the structure of a bacterial copper amine oxidase using neutron crystallography. The hi...

How do you power billions of sensors? By converting waste heat into electricity

Researchers at Osaka University are helping to power portable sensors that do not use batteries by generating electricity from heat that is otherwise wasted

Osaka University researchers found that thermoelectric power generators lose a great deal of their possible output power because of thermal and electr...

Key to beating colorectal cancer hiding in plain sight?

Researchers led by Osaka University link the well-characterized serine racemase-mediated production of pyruvate from L-serine to colorectal cancer

Colorectal cancer, one of the most common cancers in the developed world, is intrinsically resistant to many drug therapies. In an attempt to identify...
