A Step Ahead in Pharmaceutical Research

Researchers have developed a method that makes it possible to measure the activation of receptors in a very short time

07-Sep-2018

Hormones and other neurotransmitters, but also drugs, act upon receptors. “Their active substances bind to the receptors and modify the three-dimensional receptor arrangement regulating the downstream signal pathways,” says Hannes Schihada from the Institute for Pharmacology and Toxicology at the ...

Stable biradicals adding a new attraction to chemistry

Boron biradical in ground-state synthesized

26-Mar-2018

Researchers at the University of Würzburg in Germany have succeeded in twisting molecules so much that their double bonds have been completely destroyed. The result: unusually stable biradicals. Boron has a range of uses throughout everyday life, from laundry bleaches to heat-proof glass and ...

Newly designed molecule binds nitrogen

27-Feb-2018

Chemists from the University of Würzburg have developed a boron-based molecule capable of binding nitrogen without assistance from a transition metal. This might be the first step towards the energy-saving production of fertilisers. Whether wheat, millet or maize: They all need nitrogen to grow. ...

Individual Receptors Caught at Work

Technological developments allow new insights

23-Oct-2017

Using a revolutionary live-cell microscopy technique, an international team of scientist has observed for the first time individual receptors for hormones and widely used drugs at work in intact cells. G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are among the "hottest” targets for the therapy of diseases ...
