The best of both worlds: a designer molecule to combat type 2 diabetes

30-Sep-2019

A team of scientists from Kiel and Melbourne have developed a new protein from two naturally occurring proteins, which has proven very effective against type 2 diabetes in laboratory experiments. Scientists led by Professor Stefan Rose-John, a biochemist at Kiel University (CAU) and member of the ...

Plan B for Cholesterol Transport

Research team proves the existence of a previously unknown alternative cholesterol transport mechanism inside cells

16-Aug-2019

Cholesterol is a vital cell building block in humans and animals, and an integral part of the so-called cell membrane. This boundary layer separates the interior of the cell from the neighbouring cells and the surrounding environment. By means of certain proteins, it ensures that various chemical ...

Towards a light driven molecular assembler

Chemists at Kiel University built the first artificial molecular machines that performs synthesis

25-Jul-2019

Chemists usually synthesize molecules using stochastic bond-forming collisions of the reactant molecules in solution. Nature follows a different strategy in biochemical synthesis. The majority of biochemical reactions are driven by machine-type protein complexes that bind and position the ...

Over-fed bacteria make people sick

17-May-2019

Since the end of the Second World War, along with the growing prosperity and the associated changes in lifestyle, numerous new and civilisation-related disease patterns have developed in today's industrialised nations. Examples of the so-called "environmental diseases" are different bowel ...

Intestinal microbiota defend the host against pathogens

04-Mar-2019

From single-celled organisms to humans, all animals and plants are colonised by microorganisms. As so-called host organisms, they accommodate a diverse community of symbiotic microorganisms, the microbiome, and together with them form the so-called metaorganism. The interactions between host and ...

Cellular memory outwits pathogens

Study proves effectiveness of sequential antibiotic treatment against the pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa

14-Sep-2018

The World Health Organization (WHO) warns that seemingly harmless bacterial infections could develop into one of the leading causes of death in the next few years, particularly in the industrialised countries. This dramatic threat arose because, in many cases, the antibiotics that have been ...

Stone age hepatitis B virus decoded

Viral DNA shows the hepatitis B virus has been circulating in Europe for at least 7.000 years

14-May-2018

An international team of scientists led by researchers at Kiel University in the scope the CRC 1266 “Scales of Transformation” and the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History has successfully reconstructed genomes from Stone Age and Medieval European strains of the hepatitis B ...

Improved drug combinations to combat the antibiotics crisis

04-May-2018

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), antibiotic-resistant pathogens could soon become one of the most dramatic threats to public health. While the arsenal of effective antibacterial drugs shrinks further, the development of new drugs is occurring at a far too slow pace. In addition, ...

More than just spectators: Influence of ions on atomic motions investigated

03-May-2018

In batteries, fuel cells or technical coatings, central chemical processes take place on the surface of electrodes which are in contact with liquids. During these processes, atoms move over the surface, but how this exactly happens has hardly been researched. Physicists at Kiel University want to ...

Fine felted nanotubes

New composite material made of carbon nanotubes

23-Nov-2017

Extremely lightweight, electrically highly conductive, and more stable than steel: due to their unique properties, carbon nanotubes would be ideal for numerous applications, from ultra-lightweight batteries to high-performance plastics, right through to medical implants. However, to date it has ...
