An accurate picture of gene activity can provide the key to the development of new, targeted therapies
When searching for the causes of illnesses and developing new treatments, it is absolutely vital to have a precise understanding of the genetic fundamentals. Würzburg researchers have devised a new technique for this purpose. Pathological processes are usually characterised by altered gene ...
Scientific journeys back in time can provide invaluable insights for the future
The central biocatalyst in Photosynthesis, Rubisco, is the most abundant enzyme on earth. But how did Rubisco evolve, and how did it adapt to environmental changes during Earth’s history? By reconstructing billion-year-old enzymes, a team of Max Planck Researchers has deciphered one of the key ...
Physicists measure the dynamics of mobile electrons in solids with unprecedented time resolution
From experience, driving through the city centre takes longer than covering the same distance on an open country road. After all, you will encounter a lot of other road users, red lights, road works and traffic jams in the city centre. Conversely, if you want to find out how busy a road is ...
Yeast cells produce succinic acid from glycerol
For enhancing flavors, the production of dyes, pharmaceutical products and bio polyesters - succinic acid is a versatile platform chemical. A team led by Elke Nevoigt, Professor of Molecular Biotechnology at Jacobs University Bremen, has developed an economically and ecologically attractive ...
With the help of brain organoids, ETH researchers are investigating gene networks that control the development of different brain regions
Researchers at ETH Zurich are growing human brain-like tissue from stem cells and are then mapping the cell types that occur in different brain regions and the genes that regulate their development. The human brain is probably the most complex organ in the entire living world and has long been ...
In order to produce green hydrogen, water can be split up via electrocatalysis, powered by renewable sources such as sun or wind. A review article in the journal Angewandte Chemie Int. Ed. shows how modern X-ray sources such as BESSY II can advance the development of suitable electrocatalysts. In ...
Synthetic – i. e. artificially produced - cells can imitate certain functions of biological cells. These synthetic cells could open up new medical possibilities in the future. In laboratories, such cells can already help in chemical processes on a miniature scale as "mini-reactors". Scientists at ...
Progress has been made on the path to sunlight-driven production of hydrogen
Chemists from Würzburg present a new enzyme-like molecular catalyst for water oxidation. Mankind is facing a central challenge: it must manage the transition to a sustainable and carbon dioxide-neutral energy economy. Hydrogen is considered a promising alternative to fossil fuels. It can be ...
Nobel Prize goes to a trio of researchers from the USA and Denmark
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2022 to Carolyn R. Bertozzi (Stanford University, CA, USA), Morten Meldal (University of Copenhagen, Denmark) and K. Barry Sharpless (Scripps Research, La Jolla, CA, USA) “for the development of click ...
Entangled states – from theory to technology
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Nobel Prize in Physics 2022 to Alain Aspect (Université Paris-Saclay and École Polytechnique, Palaiseau, France), John F. Clauser (J.F. Clauser & Assoc., Walnut Creek, CA, USA) and Anton Zeilinger (University of Vienna, Austria) “for ...
q&more – the networking platform for quality excellence in lab and process
