Possible cause of an increase in fungal infections?
Representatives of numerous pathogenic fungal species are finding new habitat on microplastic particles in the soil and could thus be one of the possible causes of an increase in fungal infections. Researchers from Bayreuth, Hannover and Munich demonstrated this in a new study. Using ...
Study on the activation of the enzyme sirtuin 6
In the search for ways to effectively combat age-related human disease, the enzyme sirtuin 6 (Sirt6) has recently become a focus of biochemical research. A targeted activation of Sirt6 could prevent or mitigate such diseases, for example some types of cancer. In a paper for the journal "Nature ...
Developed and optimised a process for the isolation and purification of these particles from bacterial cells
Magnetic nanoparticles biosynthesized by bacteria might soon play an important role in biomedicine and biotechnology. Researchers of the University of Bayreuth have now developed and optimised a process for the isolation and purification of these particles from bacterial cells. In initial tests, ...
Groundbreaking study on protein biosynthesis in bacteria
Researchers of the University of Bayreuth and the Columbia University in New York reported groundbreaking findings on protein biosynthesis in bacteria in the journal "iScience". The small protein NusG links the two large molecular machines that work together during gene expression, which is the ...
New high-pressure material discovered and a puzzle of the periodic table solved
In the periodic table of elements there is one golden rule for carbon, oxygen, and other light elements. Under high pressures they have similar structures to heavier elements in the same group of elements. Only nitrogen always seemed unwilling to toe the line. However, high-pressure researchers ...
Future applications primarily in the production of active pharmaceutical ingredients, but also in the synthesis of fine chemicals expected
In the bioeconomy, biotechnological processes are replacing processes that rely on fossil resources. Microorganisms and enzymes are being used in targeted fashion as biocatalysts for industrial production. Researchers at the University of Bayreuth have now discovered an enzyme that offers great ...
Chemists at the University of Bayreuth have developed a sustainable, inexpensive, and at the same time potent catalytic process: it requires no rare precious metals and enables the targeted production of many fine chemicals, natural products, and medical agents. This opens up a broad spectrum of ...
Ultrashort laser pulses have enabled scientists and physicians to carry out high-precision material analyses and medical procedures. Physicists from the University of Bayreuth and the University of Göttingen have now discovered a new method for adjusting the extremely short time intervals between ...
Biochemists reveal insights into extraordinary regenerative ability
Planarians are flatworms with the extraordinary ability to restore wounded or missing parts of their body. It has long been known that a particular group of proteins – known as PIWI proteins – are essential for this ability to regenerate. A team of researchers at the University of Bayreuth led by ...
Novel material with high-tech prospects
An international research group led by scientists from the University of Bayreuth has identified a previously unknown material at DESY: Rhenium nitride pernitride. Thanks to a combination of properties that were previously considered incompatible, it looks set to become highly attractive for ...
q&more – the networking platform for quality excellence in lab and process
