1. Gene Editing for Cystic Fibrosis

    Gene Editing for Cystic Fibrosis
    Genetic engineering is at the forefront of biotechnology research to treat the most devastating diseases. This technology promises to eradicate genetic mutations that are often fatal and cannot be treated with modern medicine. Let's first understand what exactly genetic engineering is and how it can treat hereditary diseases. What Is Gene Editing? Gene editing is the process of using genetic...
  2. What Can Be Done to Fight Antibiotic Resistance?

    What Can Be Done to Fight Antibiotic Resistance?
    When Sir Alexander Fleming discovered the antibiotic penicillin in 1928, the world thought the fight against bacterial infections was finally over. Once fatal diseases, including tuberculosis, were finally curable. But over 90 years on, new, virulent strains of bacteria have developed a resistance to some of the world's most common antibiotics.   The World Health Organization is so concerned about...
  3. Abscisic Acid (ABA) - FAQs

    Abscisic Acid (ABA) - FAQs
    Abscisic acid (ABA), also known as abscicin II and dormin, is a plant hormone. ABA functions in many plant developmental processes, including bud dormancy and resistance to abiotic stresses. During drought, the plant hormone Abscisic acid (ABA) inhibits stomatal opening and promotes stomatal closure, thereby promoting water conservation.
  4. Chemical Receptor Agonists and Antagonists

    Chemical Receptor Agonists and Antagonists
    For those who are unfamiliar, chemical receptors are transmembrane proteins that make it possible to transfer chemical signals from the outer cellular microenvironment to the inside. These proteins also make it possible for the transfer of chemicals within the cell. Typically facing either the outside of the cell or the cytosolic receptors, chemical receptors are found embedded into the membrane...
