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 ...

Graphene gets competition

Layered semiconducting black arsenic phosphorus as an alternative to silicon

13-Jul-2015

Graphene, the only one atom thick carbon network, achieved overnight fame with the 2010 Nobel Prize. But now comes competition: Such layers can also be formed by black phosphorous. Chemists at the Technische Universität München (TUM) have now developed a semiconducting material in which ...

Designer's toolkit for dynamic DNA nanomachines

Arm-waving nanorobot signals new flexibility in DNA origami

30-Mar-2015

The latest DNA nanodevices created at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) - including a robot with movable arms, a book that opens and closes, a switchable gear, and an actuator - may be intriguing in their own right, but that's not the point. They demonstrate a breakthrough in the science ...

Moving molecule writes letters

Caging of molecules allows investigation of equilibrium thermodynamics

03-Mar-2015

On the search for high performance materials for applications such as gas storage, thermal insulators or dynamic nanosystems it is essential to understand the thermal behavior of matter down to the molecular level. Classical thermodynamics average over time and over a large number of molecules. ...

Gummy bears under antiparticle fire

Positrons answer questions on targeted release of medication

05-Jan-2015

Gelatin is used in the pharmaceutical industry to encapsulate active agents. It protects against oxidation and overly quick release. Tiny pores in the material have a significant influence on this, yet they are difficult to investigate. In experiments on gummy bears, researchers at Technische ...
