Their findings have been published in the online version of Nucleic Acids Research on November 22, 2023.
Abstract R-loops are three-stranded nucleic acid structures that can cause replication stress by blocking replication fork progression. However, the detailed mechanism underlying the collision of DNA replication forks and R-loops remains el... Read More
New Study Uncovers Molecular Interactions Driving Multiple Inflammasome Activation and Inflammatory Cell Death
The study findings have been published in the online version of Cellular & Molecular Immunology on November 27, 2023.
Abstract Inflammasomes are important sentinels of innate immune defense; they sense pathogens and induce the cell death of infected cells, playing key roles in inflammation, development, and cancer. Several inflammasome sensors detect and r... Read More
New Study Unveils Shape-Configurable MXene-Based Thermoacoustic Loudspeakers with Tunable Sound Directivity
The findings of this research were officially published in Advanced Materials on November 16, 2023.
Abstract Film-type shape-configurable speakers with tunable sound directivity are in high demand for wearable electronics. Flexible, thin thermoacoustic (TA) loudspeakers—which are free from bulky vibrating diaphragms—show promise in this r... Read More
Professor Changho Yoo in the Department of Chemistry at UNIST developed nickel-based catalysts to replace precious metals, such as rhodium.
Abstract Millions of tons of acetyl derivatives such as acetic acid and acetic anhydride are produced each year. These building blocks of chemical industry are elaborated into esters, amides, and eventually polymer materials, pharmaceutical... Read More
The study findings have been published in the online version of ACS Energy Letters on October 13 and selected as the cover article.
Abstract Developing a state-of-the-art anion exchange membrane water electrolyzer (AEMWE) for commercial H2 production remains a great challenge and is strongly dependent on the membrane electrode assembly (MEA). Herein, we report the first... Read More
