Critical step found in DNA repair, cellular aging

Unraveling the mysteries of aging. Research conducted by David Sinclair and colleagues shows that, in mice, treatment with the NAD precursor NMN mitigates age-related DNA damage and averts DNA damage from radiation exposure. DNA repair is essential for cell vitality, cell survival, and cancer prevention, yet cells’ ability to patch up damaged DNA declines with … Continue reading “Critical step found in DNA repair, cellular aging”

New 3-D-printed device mimics the Goldbug Beetle, which changes color when prodded.

New 3-D-printed device mimics the goldbug beetle, which changes color when prodded. In this age of smartphones and tablet computers, touch-sensitive surfaces are everywhere. They’re also brittle, as people with cracked phone screens everywhere can attest. Covering a robot — or an airplane or a bridge — with sensors will require a technology that is … Continue reading “New 3-D-printed device mimics the Goldbug Beetle, which changes color when prodded.”
