A paper in Physics Letters B has raised the possibility that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) could make a discovery that would put its previous triumph with the Higgs Boson in the shade. The authors suggest it could detect mini black holes.
Antibiotic resistance is spreading faster than the introduction of new compounds into clinical practice, causing a public health crisis. Most antibiotics were produced by screening soil microorganisms, but this limited resource of cultivable bacteria was overmined by the 1960s.
Synthetic approaches to produce antibiotics have been unable to replace this platform. Uncultured bacteria make up approximately 99% of all species in external environments, and are an untapped source of new antibiotics. A group of scientists has now developed several methods to grow uncultured organisms by cultivation in situ or by using specific growth factors. They report in Nature a new antibiotic called teixobactin, which was discovered in a screen of uncultured bacteria. Teixobactin inhibits cell wall synthesis by binding to a highly conserved motif of lipid II (precursor of peptidoglycan) and lipid III (precursor of cell wall teichoic acid). The scientists did not obtain any mutants of Staphylococcus aureus or Mycobacterium tuberculosis resistant to teixobactin. The properties of this compound suggest a path towards developing antibiotics that are likely to avoid development of resistance.
Europe is famously tesselated, with different cultural and language groups clustering in different regions. But how did they all get there? And how are they related? One way of answering these questions comes from digging up relics of the past.
“Hear of experiences both miraculous and terrifying, humorous and adventurous, humbling and revelatory, about Westerners drinking ayahuasca,” promised an email I received, pitching an event to be held on Saturday called the “Ayahuasca Monologues.”...
