Microorganisms use impressive strategies for dealing with uncertainty
Bacteria are true survivors. In the course of evolution, they have developed numerous strategies to adapt to rapidly changing, uncertain environmental conditions. Their metabolism is much more sophisticated than that of human beings. Within minutes they can regulate their gene expression and, if ...
An emerging technology to comprehensively describe entire lipid profiles
Progress in research is – to a large extent – driven by technological and analytical advance-ments. This is particularly true for the field of lipid research in the biomedical field, which was hampered for decades by the limited availability of analytical tools to address the enormous complexity ...
A novel microspectroscopic method allows sugar mapping across the plant tissue
Quantitative mapping of metabolite distribution has widespread applications in medicine and biology, but has remained a key analytical challenge. A novel method for sugar imag-ing in plants based on the principles of infrared spectroscopy, which was developed at the IPK-Gatersleben, allows the ...
Modeling the interaction of dietary ingredients with proteins
Molecular modeling, the modeling of molecular interactions, has become established over the past decades as a standard method in the development of pharmaceuticals. At the Institute for Nutritional Sciences of the University of Potsdam, molecular modeling methods are used in interdisciplinary ...
Multi-omics approach opens up new insights into the microbiome and mammalian lipid synthesis
Nature provides an enormous diversity of lipid molecules that originate from various pathways. Fatty acids are key modules for various lipids, including cell membrane lipids such as phospholipids or triacylglycerols, which are the major components of lipid droplets. Excess lipids or defects in ...
Optimizing the usability of measurement instruments in centralized lab software systems
Easy access and navigation of historical measurement data stored in central laboratory software systems is important to support the documentation and, in particular, the traceability of measurement results. For some instruments it is also useful to grant users access to past measurement data.
A value stream analysis reveals worthwhile starting points for implementing lean laboratory processes
The process industry is seeing manufacturing structures change, production chains becoming global and higher requirements placed on manufacturing processes. Businesses need to adapt to declining sales volumes and the demand for more specific product characteristics.
Smart sample preparation improves selectivity of analytical procedures for biopharmaceuticals and other drug products
Impurity testing is an essential part of pharmaceutical quality control because toxicity and content of impurities contained in drug products can impair patient safety. This requires suitable, validated analytical methods.
Development of new drug carriers based on the principles of nature
Developing new antimicrobial treatment strategies is becoming a key challenge in today's medical research. The targeted delivery of drugs into infected human tissue could significantly improve the antibiotic therapies to combat difficult-to-treat microorganisms.
A photoswitchable catalyst system enables tailoring of polymer properties
Light is a powerful tool to manipulate a vast variety of chemical processes. The use of specific photo-chromic molecules allows chemists to perform reactions in a reversible fashion with a high spatio-temporal resolution.
