Malaria parasites soften our cells' defences in order to invade
Malaria parasites soften our cells’ defences in order to invade
Malaria parasites cause red blood cells to become bendier, helping the parasites to enter and cause infection, says a new study. Malaria is caused by a family of parasites that are carried by mosquitoes. Once parasites enter the body through a mosquito bite, they multiply in the liver before invading red blood cells where they cause the symptoms of malaria disease.

Nanoscopic golden springs could unravel twisted molecules
Nanoscopic golden springs could unravel twisted molecules
University of Bath scientists have used gold spring-shaped coils 5,000 times thinner than human hairs and powerful lasers to enable the detection of twisted molecules, and the applications could improve pharmaceutical design, telecommunications and nanorobotics. Molecules, including many pharmaceuticals, twist in certain ways and can exist in left or right ‘handed' forms depending on how they twist.
