Hypoxia-inducible factor-1 dependent nuclear entry of factor inhibiting HIF-1
The role of FIH-1 in the regulation of HIF-1 transcriptional activity has been known for some time, but is limited to the understanding that in the nucleus FIH-1 hydrolyzes asparagine at the C-terminus of HIF-1α to prevent the interaction between HIF-1α and associated cofactors, resulting in suppressed activation of HIF-1. FIH-1 is a cytoplasmic protein. View News Article (2015-11-02)

Diamond detectors - The Physics Congress 2002
Diamond has an extremely high resilience to radiation - three orders of magnitude higher than silicon - making it an ideal material for detectors that monitor radioactive emissions inside the hostile environments found in nuclear energy plants. But because of the high price of real diamond, synthetic diamond is needed. The latest developments in making and improving this synthetic diamond are... View News Article (2002-04-02)

Plasma: Casimir and Yukawa mesons
A new theoretical work establishes a long-sought-after connection between nuclear particles and electromagnetic theories. View News Article (2014-11-04)

Probability of contamination from severe nuclear reactor accidents is higher than expected
Catastrophic nuclear accidents such as the core meltdowns in Chernobyl and Fukushima are more likely to happen than previously assumed. View News Article (2012-05-23)

Argonne scientists develop way to predict properties of light nuclei
Scientists have spent 70 years trying to predict the properties of nuclei, but have had to settle for approximate models because computational techniques were not equal to the task. View News Article (2008-05-22)

Researchers solve mystery of how nuclear pores duplicate before cell division
Researchers have long wondered how nuclear pores - the all-important channels that control the flow of information in and out of a cell's nucleus - double in number to prepare for the split to come when a cell divides. View News Article (2006-04-21)

Nuclear physicists examine oxygen's limits
Physicists at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) at Michigan State University have made a unique measurement of an exotic oxygen nucleus, leading scientists one step closer to deciphering the behavior of the element at its limits of existence. View News Article (2007-09-14)

U of T researchers reveal Epstein-Barr virus protein contributes to cancer
Researchers at the University of Toronto have discovered that the EBNA1 protein of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) disrupts structures in the nucleus of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) cells, thereby interfering with cellular processes that normally prevent cancer development. View News Article (2008-10-07)

Radioactive Waste in Britian
Sir Herman Bondi, writing in the foreword for this issue says, "It is very important that when the day comes for governments to take decisions on the vexed topic of nuclear waste, all aspects of it should have been studied thoroughly. I warmly recommend this special issue of ISR to its regular readers and indeed to everybody. To find so much knowledge and experience brought together in one... View News Article (1998-12-21)

Manipulated gatekeeper: How viruses find their way into the cell nucleus
They have been around since the dawn of time and are a model of evolutionary success: viruses. Viruses are extremely adaptable but they have a problem: They cannot reproduce, so they smuggle their genes into suitable host cells. View News Article (2011-10-04)
