Triterpenoid acids isolated from Schinus terebinthifolia fruits reduce Staphylococcus aureus virulence and abate dermonecrosis

We report the isolation and identification of three compounds from 430D-F5 that reduce virulence and abate dermonecrosis: 3-oxo-olean-12-en-28-oic acid, 3-oxotirucalla-7,24Z-dien-26-oic acid and 3α-hydroxytirucalla-7,24 Z-dien-27-oic acid. Compound 3 showed the most potent anti-virulence activity against S. aureus in vitro, while compound 2 exhibited the greatest level of protection from dermonecrosis in vivo. Read More: nature.com

Blood test ‘can check for more than 50 types of cancer’

A simple blood test can check for more than 50 types of cancer, often before any signs or symptoms, scientists say. The researchers, from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School, working with UK colleagues from The Francis Crick Institute and University College London, tested more than 4,000 samples from patients – some with and some without cancer.

All-purpose enzymes boost CRISPR’s powers

Because vaccine-derived polio outbreaks are becoming more probable over time, a new oral vaccine that doesn’t mutate easily is needed, the researchers say. The researchers found that the debris interacted with the atmosphere to form a dense dust cloud that raced over Earth at several kilometres per second. Read More: nature.com
