Photosynthesis: Short circuit at the chlorophyll

November 15th, 2016 by Marc M Nowaczyk

Nature Chemical Biology 12, 990 (2016). doi:10.1038/nchembio.2240

Authors: Marc M Nowaczyk & Nicolas Plumeré

Interfacing photosynthetic proteins and electrodes for investigating light-induced charge separation remains challenging. The discovery of a competing charge transfer pathway through the light-harvesting antenna defines new design requirements for electrode modification.

Nuclear receptors: PPARα ligands make memories

November 15th, 2016 by Thomas P Burris

Nature Chemical Biology 12, 993 (2016). doi:10.1038/nchembio.2241

Author: Thomas P Burris

Three newly identified endogenous ligands of the nuclear receptor PPARα—hydroxydimethylbutyrate, hexadecanamide and octadecenamide—are implicated in the noncanonical activity of PPARα in synaptic function and hippocampal plasticity.
