The prebiotic emergence of protocells is an important part of chemical origin of life. This study shows that cyclic-phospholipids formed from fatty acids and glycerol could have played a role by generating a heterogeneous library of vesicles with diverse morphologies and tolerance to a range of metal ions, temperature, and pH.

Hydrogen traps can be introduced into the material microstructure to immobilize or trap absorbed hydrogen, limiting the amount of hydrogen participating in the embrittling process. This study finds that adding the chemical element molybdenum to steel reinforced with Ti-carbides markedly enhances its ability to trap hydrogen.

This study investigates the factors regulating the nuclear entry of intact HIV-1 capsid using coarse-grained simulations and structural analysis. It demonstrates that modulating the capsid lattice elasticity can be an effective strategy for the development of antiviral drugs to prevent viral nuclear import and impair infection.

This research indicates that in neurodegenerative conditions ongoing stress caused by protein aggregation is leading to the death of brain cells. This reports a ubiquitin-dependent mechanism that silences the cellular response to stress. Stress response silencing was found to sustain cell survival even if stress resolution failed.
