Small heat shock protein as model for Alzheimer medication

New field of application for versatile helper

14-Oct-2015

In Alzheimer’s disease proteins clump together to long fibrils causing the death of nerve cells. Small heat shock proteins can counteract this effect. Scientists, therefore, hope to deploy them as agents in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. Using the example of a small heat shock ...

Living organisms in oil

13-Aug-2014

Miniscule water droplets in oil provide a habitat for a number of microorganisms. Scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum München have discovered that these communities of microorganisms play a part in breaking down the oil and have published their findings in the journal Science. Oil might not, at ...
