How the cell protects itself

Researchers discover the mechanism that prevents damage caused by shortened proteins

14-Jun-2019

The cell contains transcripts of the genetic material, which migrate from the cell nucleus to another part of the cell. This movement protects the genetic transcripts from the recruitment of “spliceosomes”. If this protection does not happen, the entire cell is in danger: meaning that cancer and ...

Construction kit for custom-designed products

Biotechnologists develop robust and efficient methods for the production of new peptide drugs

13-Jun-2019

Microorganisms often assemble natural products similar to product assembly lines. Certain enzymes, non-ribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPS), play a key role in this process. Biotechnologists at Goethe University have now succeeded in changing these enzymes so that entirely new natural products, ...

How to separate nanoparticles by “shape”

New strategy to separate molecules

13-Jun-2019

In our daily lives, the purpose and function of an item is defined by either its material, e.g. a rain jacket is fabricated of water-proof material, or its shape, e.g. a wheel is round to enable a rolling motion. What is the impact of the two factors on the nanoscale? The impact of material, ...

Learning from Nature’s Bounty: New Libraries for Drug discovery

12-Jun-2019

Natural products, or their close derivatives, make some of our most potent medicines, among which macrocycles with their large carbon-rich ring systems are one class. The size and complexity of macrocycles has made it difficult to emulate and build on Nature’s success in the laboratory. By ...

Fiber-optic probe can see molecular bonds

Pointing the new nanoscopy tool like a Harry Potter wand reveals a high-resolution image of molecules

12-Jun-2019

In "Avengers: Endgame," Tony Stark warned Scott Lang that sending him into the quantum realm and bringing him back would be a "billion-to-one cosmic fluke." In reality, shrinking a light beam to a nanometer-sized point to spy on quantum-scale light-matter interactions and retrieving the ...

How Artificial Intelligence Detects Rare Diseases

11-Jun-2019

Every year, around half a million children worldwide are born with a rare hereditary disease. Obtaining a definitive diagnosis can be difficult and time consuming. In a study of 679 patients with 105 different rare diseases, scientists from the University of Bonn and the Charité - ...

Approved medications – new role in combating infections?

07-Jun-2019

Influenza A viruses periodically cause severe influenza epidemics. Due to their genetic variability, new subtypes can emerge that are no longer covered by seasonal influenza vaccines. Looking for an effective treatment of such serious influenza infections, researchers of the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut ...

Direct Observation of Giant Molecules

Physicists achieved to form giant diatomic molecules and optically detect them afterwards by using a high-resolution objective

07-Jun-2019

The tiny size of conventional diatomic molecules in the sub-nanometer regime hinders direct optical resolution of their constituents. Physicists from the Quantum Many Body Division at MPQ led by Prof. Immanuel Bloch were able to bind pairs of highly excited atoms at a distance of one micrometer. ...

Killing the Unkillable Cancer Cells

06-Jun-2019

We all know someone affected by the battle against cancer. And we know that treatments can be quite efficient at shrinking the tumor but too often, they can’t kill all the cells, and so it may come back. With some aggressive types of cancer, the problem is so great that there is very little that ...

Snapshots of the flu virus replication machine in action

05-Jun-2019

Researchers from EMBL Grenoble have, for the first time, observed different functional states of the influenza virus polymerase as it is actively transcribing. These results, published in Nature Structural & Molecular Biology, provide valuable information for the next generation of anti-influenza ...
