Discovery of new geological processes requires changes in the plate tectonics cycle

Newly discovered process elements in plate tectonics include mass (rock weight), pulleys (trench), dashpots (microcontinents), and strings that interconnect these elements (ocean plates). It will be. In the initial state, microcontinents drift toward the subduction zone (Fig. A). The microcontinent then stretches due to the tensile force exerted by the pulling of the bedrock across the subduction zone during its ...

Researchers discover new class of cancer-fighting compounds

A team of Oregon State University scientists has discovered a new class of anti-cancer compounds that effectively kill liver and breast cancer cells. The findings describe the discovery and characterization of compounds, designated as Select Modulators of AhR-regulated Transcription (SMAhRTs). The researchers employed two molecular screening techniques to discover potential SMAhRTs and identified a molecule – known as CGS-15943 – ...
