A Guide to the Different Types of Fat

Fat is an important nutrient in our diets, but there’s a lot of talk of different types of fats, and whether these types are beneficial or harmful to our health. These different fat classifications have their roots in chemistry – and chemistry can also help explain their effects. This graphic takes more

The Chemistry of the Smell of Toilets & Human Waste

Today’s post marks a slight detour for the aroma chemistry series. So far, we’ve look mainly at pleasant aromas, but today we turn to a major malodour: that of toilets, and, more specifically, human waste. It might seem like something of a childish subject, but there are some interesting chemical co more

  • Diet, gut microbiota and host lipid metabolism

    Nature provides an enormous diversity of lipid molecules that originate from various pathways. Fatty acids are key modules for various lipids, including cell membrane lipids such as phospholipids or triacylglycerols, which are the major components of lipid droplets. Excess lipids or defects in lipid metabolism are associated with diseases such as metabolic syndrome. more

  • Highly specific aptamers for analytics and therapeutics

    DNA and RNA aptamers are high-affinity, nucleotide-based binding molecules which, as an alternative to antibodies, are already being widely used in analytics, diagnostics and therapeutics. The generation of new aptamers and their industrial implementation opens up new potentials for a wide range of application areas. more

  • Genes on sugar

    The targeted transport of DNA and RNA using vectors (mostly made from synthetic polymers) in cell cultures has become part of routine practice in biological R&D – a fact highlighted by the multitude of commercial kits now available. To date, however, obstacles relating to use in patients have beset many laboratory studies and – in particular – the transfer to clinical practice. more
