High resolution x-ray structure of the enzyme adenylate kinase trapped in a transient structural state by a covalent disulfide bond.
31 May 2017

The structures and functions of a transient enzyme state have been mapped for the first time using NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography.

25 May 2017

Scientists at the University of Sheffield have used NMR spectroscopy to examine the molecules in live sperm, and early data suggests it could discriminate between populations of good and poor sperm. Thus, it might be useful to improve diagnosis of sperm problems because it is non-destructive, so the sperm examined could be used in fertility treatments after analysis.

Salmon is one of the most popular edible fish of all. Shops sell fish caught in the wild, but their main produce is salmon from breeding farms, the effluent from which can pollute rivers, lakes and oceans. German and Chilean scientists have used fluorescence measurements, high-resolution mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to answer this question.
