Cynthia ShahanWe write about CO2 emissions of fossil fuels quite a bit on CleanTechnica, but there is something that bears repetition as well. It is that renewable energy typically uses much less water than other electricity sources. The overuse of water, including for our power plants, is something that critically threatens our children

By using an enzyme produced from a by-product of mustard seeds, they hope to develop a low-cost naturally derived version of lipase, the second largest commercially produced enzyme, which is used in various industries for the production of fine chemicals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and biodiesel including detergents.

MicroRNA regulates process vital to placenta growth in early pregnancy

Researchers have discovered how a very large human non-protein coding gene regulates epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) — a process that contributes to placental implantation during early pregnancy, as well as cancer progression and spread. EMT plays a key role in proper placenta growth, critical to the health of the mother and her growing fetus. The USF Health team showed that robustly activating the chromosome 19 microRNA cluster using CRISPR technology inhibited EMT.
