Targeting the curvature of cell membranes for parasitic infection treatment

  Cell membranes are crowded and dynamic places. They constitute the first contact for all external stimuli that arrive at a cell, and are in charge of transmitting this information to the cell interior. This works through a cascade of metabolic steps, performed by several phospholipases, amongst other enzymes. Phospholipases degrade membrane components and form signal messengers, which transmit chemical […]

Recognition of urban water bodies using deep learning with multi-source and multi-temporal high spatial resolution remote sensing imagery

  Data from High Spatial Resolution Remote Sensing Imagery (HSRRSI) provides detailed information required for the recognition of surface water bodies, including the texture, geometric structure and spatial distribution of these liquid masses. The comprehensive information gathered means that the internal components of surface water bodies can be represented, and the relationship between adjacent objects are better reflected. In the […]

How does genetics affect the way we taste salt and how our blood pressure responds to it? Implications for personalised dietary recommendations

  Salt sensitivity of blood pressure is defined as an increase in blood pressure after consuming large amounts of salt. While in salt-sensitive people we observe a salt-induced increase in blood pressure, in salt-resistant individuals such an increase is not observed. Salt-sensitive individuals may be at an increased risk of high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease later in life. Salt […]
