Push and pull Brown University researchers have shown that the effects of external strain on a catalyst depend on the internal strain exerted by chemical reactants. That new theoretical framework could be useful in optimizing catalysts for different reactions. Peterson lab / Brown University

New theory shows how strain makes for better catalysts

According to a new theory developed by Brown scientists stretching or compressing metal, catalysts can make them perform better. Applying a strain to metal catalysts...
The normal mitochondria, pictured, are found in the cytoplasm of most cells and contain enzymes responsible for energy production. Children born to mothers with mutation-bearing mitochondria can lead to grave, incurable diseases.

Mitochondrial replacement moratorium should be reconsidered, study

Moms with mitochondrial DNA changes frequently bring forth youngsters who confront hopeless and deadly ailments. In any case, a much-contemplated type of mitochondrial substitution...
