The effect of annealing on starch structure and functionality of three maize starches (waxy, normal and high-amylose) was investigated, with the aim of understanding the role of amylose molecules during starch annealing. Amylose content, granular morphology and crystallinity of maize starches were little affected by annealing treatment. Annealing treatment did not alter the swelling power of waxy maize starch, but reduced the swelling power of normal and high-amylose maize starches. The thermal transition temperatures were increased, and the temperature range was decreased, but the enthalpy change was not affected greatly. The pasting viscosities of normal and waxy maize starches were decreased significantly, with the pasting temperature being little affected. The in vitro digestibility of three maize starches was not affected significantly by annealing treatment. Our results demonstrated that amylose molecules play an important role in the structural reorganization of starch granules during annealing treatment.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
