Ancient Enzymes the Catalysts for New Discoveries

Ancient Enzymes the Catalysts for New Discoveries

University of Queensland-led research recreating 450 million-year-old enzymes has resulted in a biochemical engineering ‘hack’ which could lead to new drugs, flavours, fragrances and biofuels. Professor Elizabeth Gillam from UQ’s School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences said the study showed ancient enzymes could survive high temperatures and that this could help create chemicals cheaply and at scale.

Mars may have enough molecular oxygen for life

Mars may have enough molecular oxygen for life

Modern-day Mars may be more hospitable to oxygen-breathing life than previously thought. A new study suggests that salty water at or near the surface of the red planet could contain enough dissolved O2 to support oxygen-breathing microbes, and even more complex organisms such as sponges. “Nobody thought of Mars as a place where aerobic respiration […]

Europa plume sites lack expected heat signatures

Europa plume sites lack expected heat signatures

The study of two potential plume sites on Jupiter’s moon Europa has shown a lack of expected hotspot signatures, unlike Enceladus where plumes have a very clear and obvious temperature signature, research by Planetary Science Institute Senior Scientist Julie Rathbun shows. “We searched through the available Galileo thermal data at the locations […]
