Addicted to Love? It's Not You, It's Your Brain. (Video)

Love can make you feel different things –- sometimes happy, sometimes fixated, and sometimes down right sick. And it turns out that drugs almost work in the same way.

Chemical Cages: New Technique Advances Synthetic Biology

Living systems rely on a dizzying variety of chemical reactions essential to development and survival. Most of these involve a specialized class of protein molecules--the enzymes. In a new study, Hao Yan, director of the Center for Molecular Design and Biomimetics at ASU's Biodesign Institute presents a clever means of localizing and confining enzymes and the substrate molecules they bind with, speeding up reactions essential for life processes.
