Hurdle of microscopy overcome

Smallest cell structures can now be imaged even better

10-Jul-2020

High-resolution microscopy makes it theoretically possible to image cell structures with a resolution of a few nanometres. However, this has not yet been possible in practice. The reason for this is that antibodies carrying a fluorescent dye are usually used to mark the cell structures. The dye ...

New Molecular Probes for Opioid Receptors

26-Mar-2020

It could be an important step forward in the improvement of pain therapy: Thanks to newly developed molecular probes, the behavior of individual opioid receptors can now be studied in detail. Strong painkillers are very important in the management of patients with cancer and heart attack or ...

Tracking Down False Parkers in Cancer Cells

12-Mar-2020

In squamous cell carcinoma, a protein ensures that unneeded proteins are no longer disposed of. A research team at the University of Würzburg has switched off this protein for the first time. Squamous cell carcinoma is a very unusual type of cancer. They occur in many tissues – for example in ...

Virus multiplication in 3D

16-Dec-2019

Vaccinia viruses serve as a vaccine against human smallpox and as the basis of new cancer therapies. Two studies now provide fascinating insights into their unusual propagation strategy at the atomic level. For viruses to multiply, they usually need the support of the cells they infect. In many ...

Achilles Heel of Tumour Cells

06-Nov-2019

In almost all cases of colon cancer, a specific gene is mutated – this offers opportunities to develop broadly effective therapeutic approaches. Research teams in Würzburg have taken this a step further. In 90 percent of all cases of colon cancer, the tumour cells have one thing in common: the ...

Organic dye in zinc oxide interlayer stabilizes and boosts the performance of organic solar cells

20-Aug-2019

Organic solar cells are made of cheap and abundant materials, but their efficiency and stability still lag behind those of silicon-based solar cells. A Chinese-German team of scientists has found a way to enhance the electric conductivity of organic solar cells, which increases their ...

Cell Division at High Speed

When two proteins work together, this worsens the prognosis for lung cancer patients

20-Jun-2019

In malignant tumours, the cells usually proliferate quickly and uncontrollably. A research team from the Biocenter of Julius-Maximilians-Universität (JMU) Würzburg in Bavaria, Germany, has discovered that two important regulators of cell division can interact in this process. If this is the case, ...

Inert Nitrogen Forced to React with Itself

26-Mar-2019

Direct coupling of two molecules of nitrogen: chemists from Würzburg and Frankfurt have achieved what was thought to be impossible. This new reaction is reported in Science magazine and opens new possibilities for one of the most inert molecules on earth. Constituting over 78 % of the air we ...

Protein BRCA1 as a Stress Coach

22-Mar-2019

Two proteins work hand in hand to ensure that the tumour cells of neuroblastoma can grow at full speed. In "Nature", a Würzburg research team shows how the proteins can do this. Anyone who has ever studied the molecular basis of breast cancer will probably have heard of the abbreviation BRCA1 – ...

New findings about anti-malaria drug

30-Jan-2019

Artemisinin is derived from the leaves and flowers of the annual mugwort (Artemisia annua) and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. The effectiveness was investigated by the Chinese researcher Tu Youyou. Her research was 2015 rewarded with the Nobel Prize. Artemisinin and ...
