The Duality of the Ebola Virus: How a Deadly Viral Infection Can be Harnessed for Healing

The Duality of the Ebola Virus: How a Deadly Viral Infection Can be Harnessed for Healing

Scientists have recently been exploring the potential of utilizing the deadly Ebola virus as a potential treatment against brain tumors. Through testing three chimeric variations of the Ebola virus on severe combined immunodeficient (SCID) mice, it was found that the Ebola virus may be a safe and effective way to protect brain cells while killing tumor cells.

Uranium—A Promising Catalyst for the Hydrogenation of Ethene to Ethane

Uranium—A Promising Catalyst for the Hydrogenation of Ethene to Ethane

In chemical processes, catalysts are compounds that increase the rate while undergoing a cycle of structural changes. At the end of the reaction, the catalyst reforms as it had presented originally. Some of the most common catalytic reactions in organometallic

Iron With Three Arms

Iron With Three Arms

In biological systems, iron-sulfur (Fe-S) clusters act as components of electron transfer proteins. These clusters occur in various different forms, including cubanes (4Fe-4S) and diamond (2Fe-2S) structures. All known iron-sulfur clusters yield high-spin electron configurations, meaning that one electron is
