Well, great balls of fat. Cells have spherical globs of lipid (fat) molecules that never had gotten much attention nor respect. They have been called lipid droplets, oil bodies, fat globules and other names suggesting they were just the beer bellies of the cell. Not any more. Scientists have been taking a closer look at these globs and are finding them to be dynamic, functional sites of critical metabolic activity. No longer are they bags of superfluous undesirable molecules: they have been promoted to essential organelles, named adiposomes. Mary Beckman introduced two papers in Science with a summary of the new discoveries.1 Whatever their name, these intracellular blobs of triglycerides or cholesterol esters, encased in a thin phospholipid membrane, are catching the attention of more and more biologists. It turns out these lively balls of fat have as many potential roles within cells and tissues as they have names. Pockmarked with proteins with wide-ranging biochemical activities, they shuffle components around the cell, store energy in the form of neutral lipids, and possibly maintain the many membranes of the cell. The particles could also be involved in lipid diseases, diabetes, cardiovascular trouble, and liver problems. (Emphasis added in all quotes.)Beckman discussed several recent findings demonstrating what happens when fat regulation by adiposomes is disrupted. Since there is still much to be learned about adiposomes, Beckman mainly teased the readers with the possibilities that lie ahead. She quoted one biologist who called the biology of lipid droplets “immense and untapped.” A Perspectives paper in the same issue by Stuart Smith introduced new findings about the machines that make fat.2 He summarized a paper by Maier, Jenni and Ban revealing, in unprecedented detail, the structure of mammalian Fatty Acid Synthase (FAS),3 and another by the same authors plus Leibundgut about the comparable FAS machine in fungi.4 The former looks somewhat like a flying saucer; the latter, like a wheel with spokes from the top, or a complex cage from the side. The diagrams of these machines point out “active sites” and “reaction chambers” where complex molecules are assembled in a specific sequence. The machines apparently have moving parts. The conclusion of the mammalian FAS paper hints how everything must be done in order and with the right specifications:The overall architecture of mammalian FAS has been revealed by x-ray crystallography at intermediate resolution. The dimeric [two-part] synthase adopts an asymmetric X-shaped conformation with two reaction chambers on each side formed by a full set of enzymatic domains required for fatty acid elongation, which are separated by considerable distances. Substantial flexibility of the reaction chamber must accompany the handover of reaction intermediates during the FAS cycle, and further conformational transitions are required to explain the presence of alternative inter- and intrasubunit synthetic routes in FAS. The results presented here provide a new structural basis to further experiments required for a detailed understanding of the complex mechanism of mammalian FAS.Even for the fungal machine, the authors spoke of the “remarkable architectural principles” it exemplifies. It’s a whole new world of fat. Let that go to your understanding, not to your waist.1Mary Beckman, “Great Balls of Fat,” Science, 3 March 2006: Vol. 311. no. 5765, pp. 1232 – 1234, DOI: 10.1126/science.311.5765.1232.2Stuart Smith, “Architectural Options for a Fatty Acid Synthase,” Science, 3 March 2006: Vol. 311. no. 5765, pp. 1251 – 1252, DOI: 10.1126/science.1125411.3Timm Maier, Simon Jenni, Nenad Ban, “Architecture of Mammalian Fatty Acid Synthase at 4.5 � Resolution,” Science, 3 March 2006: Vol. 311. no. 5765, pp. 1258 – 1262, DOI: 10.1126/science.1123248.4Simon Jenni, Marc Leibundgut, Timm Maier, Nenad Ban, “Architecture of a Fungal Fatty Acid Synthase at 5 � Resolution,” Science, 3 March 2006: Vol. 311. no. 5765, pp. 1263 – 1267, DOI: 10.1126/science.1123251.The closer they look, the more wondrous the cell gets. Who would have thought that blobs of fat would contain machinery with moving parts and reaction chambers? Who would have imagined their surfaces would be covered with complex proteins that regulate the production inside? Who would have realized that fat was so important, the cell had complex assembly plants to build it? Fat is almost a mild cussword in our vocabulary, but it is another class of molecular building blocks we couldn’t live without. Fats, sugars, proteins and nucleic acids all work together in life, from humans to lowly fungi. Each class of molecules has immense variety, each is essential, and each is manufactured to spec by precision machinery. What a wonderful post-Darwinian world.(Visited 15 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
If you thought that the reign of Aamir Khan’s Dangal was over with the end of its dream run in China, you were wrong. The film released in Hong Kong on August 24, and has taken the box office by storm there, as well. In fact, the film earned more than six million Hong Kong dollars in just five days. Dangal earned HK$ 6,159,421 (Rs 5.04 crore) as of Monday.The Nitesh Tiwari-directed film has smashed existing records to become the highest grossing Bollywood film of all time. Its performance in China took everyone by surprise, and Dangal raked in more than Rs 1000 crore in the neighbouring country alone. In fact, the sports drama’s collection in China was greater than its domestic collection.Fans were disappointed when Dangal stopped just short of Rs 2000 crore worldwide. With a fresh lease of life in Hong Kong, will the film be able to reach the milestone?Dangal tells the story of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, and his struggle to train his daughters Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari, played by Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra respectively, to become world wrestling champions.ALSO READ: Dangal Movie ReviewALSO READ: Chinese President Xi Jinping is all praise for Aamir Khan’s DangalALSO WATCH: Decoding the success of Dangal in China

Image Courtesy: Pexels under CC0 Creative Commons license Athens-based tanker owner and operator TOP Ships has inked a sale and leaseback agreement and a five-year time charter with Cargill International for its MR2 tanker newbuilding.The 50,000 dwt ship (Hull No 8242) is currently under construction at Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in South Korea.As informed, the deal is expected to be realized on the vessel’s delivery date currently planned for January 2019.Following the sale, TOP Ships will bareboat charter back the vessel and immediately put it on a time charter with Cargill Ocean Transportation. As part of this transaction, the company has continuous options to buy back the vessel during the whole five year sale and leaseback period at the end of which it has to buy it back.The gross proceeds from the sale amount are USD 32.4 million, which is the total amount that remains to be paid for the specific vessel. Additionally, the revenue backlog expected to be generated by the time charter fixture is about USD 27.6 million.“Our strategy of acquiring very high quality vessels has once again been embraced by a top quality charterer. This financing alone covers about one fifth of the capital required in order to take delivery of the three vessels that we acquired during the first quarter of 2018, all of which will be delivered within the first 2 quarters of 2019. We are working very hard to finalize financing for the remaining capital requirements of these vessels in the near future,” Evangelos Pistiolis, the President, Chief Executive Officer and Director of the Company, said.Earlier this month, the company also agreed time charter employment for two of its Suezmax newbuildings with an undisclosed oil major. The units are being built at Korean yard Hyundai Samho.“As a result of the time charter employment, the total gross revenue backlog for the fixed charter period of our fleet has grown even further to USD 211 million,” Pistiolis added.
zoomImage Courtesy: Damen On March 18, Damen Yichang Shipyard in China held a steel cutting ceremony for the first of a planned series of short-sea LNG bunker vessels to be built for Estonian energy company Eesti Gaas.The 6,000 cbm vessel, ordered a couple of months ago, and its future sister-ships are intended to accelerate the wider adoption of LNG as a cleaner alternative fuel in the north-eastern region of the Baltic Sea by providing a mobile ship-to-ship distribution service for the first time.At the ceremony the first sections of the 100-meter, LGC 6000 LNG class vessel were cut from 8mm steel plate and will eventually be part of the wall separating the ship’s engine room from the tank hold. Assembly will start in May with the installation of the LNG tanks scheduled for November, according to Damen.Following sea trials, the ship will arrive in Estonia next summer and will start serving LNG clients in the autumn. The new vessel will be capable of carrying out bunker activities at designated locations both in and outside ports.The LGC 6000 LNG is designed to meet the requirements of ICE class 1A certification, allowing it to operate all year in the Gulf of Finland and the northern Baltic. It will also have a green ship notation. A dual-fuel propulsion system will be used for the management of the Boil-Off Gas (BOG) in combination with a gas burner, and the interior of the vessel will feature high-quality accommodation for her crew.Eesti Gaas will operate the vessel under a long-term charter from its parent company Infortar AS. Eesti Gaas is also the LNG supplier for Tallink Grupp’s LNG RoPax vessel Megastar.“The start of steel cutting for this brand-new vessel for Infortar marks an important milestone in the start of her construction. We are very grateful to Eesti Gaas and Infortar for choosing Damen to build their new LNG bunkering vessel,” Peter Anssems, Sales Manager, Sales East and South-East Europe, Damen Shipyards Group, commented.“With this high-tech joint venture, Eesti Gaas and our launch client ferry-operator Tallink will ascend to having the title of the LNG companies with the most competence and experience in this region,” Kalev Reiljan, a member of the management board of Eesti Gaas, said.“Eesti Gaas has performed over 1,500 port-based LNG truck-to-ship refuellings of Tallink’s LNG-powered Megastar ferry and now we are moving on toward offshore, more mobile solutions,” Reiljan added.This project is co-funded by the EU through the CEF Transport program.

CALGARY — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the only way to get projects like the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion built is by finding compromise between growing the economy and protecting the environment.Trudeau was speaking at a reception for Liberal Party donors during the Calgary Stampede, where he had fewer public appearances than in past years.The prime minister took aim at his conservative opponents in his remarks to dozens of party faithful in a downtown Calgary cafe. He says these days a government can’t just dictate where a pipeline will be built like Canada’s first prime minister, John A. Macdonald, did for the railroad.Earlier in the day Trudeau greeted crowds and served pancakes at a community Stampede breakfast in the riding of Calgary’s only Liberal MP, Kent Hehr.There, university student Isabelle Reynolds confronted Trudeau over the treatment of Mi’kmaq opponents of a Nova Scotia natural gas project.Trudeau told her he had been listening to concerns over the project, but Reynolds told reporters afterward she was not satisfied with the prime minister’s response.A small group of yellow-vest-clad demonstrators held anti-Trudeau signs outside the donor event.The Canadian Press
New Delhi: The Congress on Saturday hit out at the government over the British media reports on Nirav Modi and alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is running a “fraudster settlement yojana”. Taking to Twitter, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said, “The video of fugitive #NiravModi in London shows an uncanny similarity between him & his bhai, PM Modi. Both have looted India and are called Modi. Both refuse to answer any questions. Both believe they are above the law. Both will face justice.” Also Read – Squadrons which participated in Balakot air strike awarded citations on IAF DayCongress’ Chief Spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said: “Fugitive Nirav Modi has been seen enjoying in London… First loot Rs 23,000 crore from banks, then run away from the country without any checks, mock the CBI and the ED, and then make a comfortable home in a Rs 75 crore flat. Modi is there, so it is possible,” he claimed. Ex-FM P Chidambaram tweeted, “When Lalit Modi stayed on in the UK, I wrote to the UK Chancellor that he should be sent back to India. Mrs Sushma Swaraj mocked me for writing letters,” he said in a tweet. Now Nirav Modi is walking on the streets of London. Will Mrs Sushma Swaraj swoop down, pluck him off the street and bring him back to India?”
