Infrared analysis of rat bone: age dependency of amorphous and crystalline mineral fractions
Quantitative infrared spectrophotometric analysis of whole femurs from male rats demonstrates that anorphous calcium phosphate is a major component of bone mineral. The amount of amorphous calcium phosphate in whole bone decreases while the crystalline bone apatite increases during early stages of bone formation. Mature rat bone contains constant levels of both amorphous and crystalline calcium phosphate.

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.
