Heat loss from the Earth triggers ice sheet slide towards the sea

In North-East Greenland, researchers have measured the loss of heat that comes up from the interior of the Earth. This enormous area is a geothermal “hot spot” that melts the ice sheet from below and triggers the sliding of glaciers towards the sea.

Danish researchers reveal how the MRSA bacterium handles stress

An international team of researchers has revealed a fundamental mechanism responsible for handling stress in staphylococci when they are exposed to antibiotics. It is expected that the research results eventually can be used to develop new antibiotics that circumvent such stress mechanisms.

Breakthrough in solar driven organic synthesis using cheap catalyst

Researchers from the groups of Flemming Besenbacher and Nina Lock at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) at Aarhus University and Synfuels China Technology Co. Ltd. demonstrate the commercial potential of solar driven N-N coupling reactions in a new study published in Nature Communications.

Researchers reveal dual role for human RNA decay factor

Rearchers at Aarhus University have characterized the human RNA decay factor ZC3H18 and discovered its unanticipated role in the production of protein-coding RNA. The new study, published this week in Cell Reports, therefore reveals a double-faced activity of ZC3H18 in nuclear RNA fate decisions.

A Channel in the Heart of the Matter

How cells control the movement of ions, electrically charged species, in and out of the cell is a grand puzzle, whose completion will allow a thorough fundamental understanding of human physiology. A Danish-American team of researchers has found a piece of the puzzle with their determination of two structures of the human calcium-activated cation…
