Biomolecule’s behaviour under artificial conditions more natural than expected

Comparing cell and test tube

04-Feb-2016

Researchers often analyse isolated biomolecules in test tubes, and it is doubtful if the results can be applied to densely-packed cells. A team from Bochum, Dortmund and Greifswald monitored the folding of an RNA structure in the living cell and compared the results with those of test tube ...

Alzheimer risk impairs “satnav” function of the brain

Altered activation pattern in entorhinal cortex in young risk carriers

26-Oct-2015

Young adults with genetically increased Alzheimer’s risk have altered activation patterns in a brain region that is crucial for spatial navigation. This is reported by the team headed by Prof Nikolai Axmacher from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, together with colleagues from the universities of ...

Protein reactions identified with subatomic resolution

08-Oct-2015

Using subatomic resolution, researchers have gained insights into the dynamic modus operandi of two switch proteins which are responsible for the import of compounds into the nucleus and for cell growth. The team headed by Prof Dr Klaus Gerwert from the Department of Biophysics at the ...

Turkish whistling makes asymmetries in the brain disappear

19-Aug-2015

Researchers at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum have debunked the theory that the left brain hemisphere is dominant in the processing of all languages. To date, it has been assumed that that dominance is not determined by the physical structure of a given language. However, the biopsychologists have ...

Assessing quality of flowing waters with DNA analyses

Organisms in streams and rivers shed light on quality of waters

10-Jul-2015

The quality of waters can be assessed using of the organisms occurring therein. This approach often results in errors, because many species look alike. Therefore, new methods focus on DNA analyses instead. Biologists at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) have optimised the process so that they are ...

Detecting lung cancer at an early stage

Marker-free, automatic procedure facilitates prognosis regarding tumour aggressiveness

22-Apr-2015

A new diagnostic method, namely spectral histopathology, facilitates marker-free detection of individual subtypes of lung cancers. It was developed by researchers at the PURE consortium at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB). They have successfully applied it in collaboration with clinicians at the ...

Measurable for the first time: How bio molecules react to lack of space

Sensor demonstrates lack of space in living cells

07-Jan-2015

Proteins and other bio molecules are often analysed exclusively in aqueous solutions in test tubes. But it is uncertain if these experimental studies can be transferred to the densely-packed cellular environment. The Bochum-based researchers from the team of Junior Professor Dr Simon Ebbinghaus ...

Researchers discover protein protecting against chlorine

RidA protects intestinal bacteria from immune activity

22-Dec-2014

Chlorine is a common disinfectant that is used to kill bacteria, for example in swimming pools and drinking water supplies. Our immune system also produces chlorine, which causes proteins in bacteria to lose their natural folding. These unfolded proteins then begin to clump and lose their ...

How memories form: A glimpse into the 3D brain

08-Oct-2014

People who wish to know how memory works are forced to take a glimpse into the brain. They can now do so without bloodshed: RUB researchers have developed a new method for creating 3D models of memory-relevant brain structures. They published their results in the trade journal “Frontiers in ...

Internet addiction on the rise

Depressive disorders, anxiety disorders and ADHS are most common concomitants

06-Oct-2014

Internet addicts often suffer from concomitant disorders, most frequently from depressive disorders, anxiety disorders and ADHS. PD Dr med. Bert te Wildt studies this phenomenon at the Ruhr-Universität’s LWL Clinic for Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy. Spectrum of concomitant disorders ...
