The study, led by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, identifies a new molecular circuit
that controls longevity in yeast and more complex organisms and suggests a therapeutic intervention that could mimic the lifespan-enhancing effect of caloric restriction, no dietary restrictions necessary.
we have uncovered a fundamentally new molecular circuit
involved in mammalian cell polarity and bacterial infection.
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Scientists demonstrated the transduction of optical radiation to electrical current in a molecular circuit
components are potentially more versatile than existing microelectronics, and may lead to reduced cost and lower power consumption.
Topics include a VHDL core for intrinsic evolution of discrete time filters with signal feedback, non-evolvable indirectly replicating nanorobots with self- assembling parts, complexity metrics for self-monitoring impact sensing networks, and molecular circuit
AAK-2 is part of a molecular circuit
that is very similar in both species, suggesting that AMP-1 may also regulate aging in humans.
Iliopoulos and his colleagues found that in mice given a carcinogenic chemical, DEN, liver cancer was initiated by the activation of a molecular circuit
that sets up an inflammatory state in the cells, leading to cancer.
Signal transduction pathways respond to different environmental conditions; they are like molecular circuits
that detect and integrate diverse external signals to alter gene transcription.
In other presentations, researchers will show how to strengthen and lighten materials by reverse-engineering natural structures like wood, grass, bone, and reveal how photovoltaic devices can be improved by imitating photosynthetic molecular circuits
Before we can beat silicon electronics, we must find new ways of making molecular circuits
Nano-enabled molecular circuits
will marry with silicon until you get to a pure molecular play" for instance, and then processes will emerge for "effective laser-printing and integrating circuits with nano-scale objects.
But he is also confident, that it represents a first step towards proper integrated molecular circuits
