Special RNA suppresses the formation of breast cancer cells
International research team deciphers molecular mechanism in the synthesis of ribosomal RNA
18-Jan-2024 - Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. The development of breast cancer often originates from epithelial cells in the mammary gland – the very cells that specialise in milk production during and after pregnancy. A team of researchers from Friedrich Schiller University Jena (Germany), ...

International research team clarifies mode of action of cannabinoids in inflammation
31-Aug-2023 - While the German government is planning to relax legislation on the use of cannabis, researchers from the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, together with colleagues from Italy, Austria and the USA, have identified the mode of action underlying anti-inflammatory effects demonstrated by ...
Simply resolving inflammation through the flick of a switch
Frankincense resin as an anti-inflammatory - without side effects?
10-Jan-2023 - A research team at the University of Jena has discovered a molecular mechanism that can resolve inflammation and promote tissue regeneration – possibly without side effects. A natural substance from frankincense resin flicks the molecular “switch”. Chronic inflammatory processes are the most ...

Research team improves superresolution microscopy
24-Sep-2019 - In order to observe cells at work, researchers have to bypass a physical law. One of the fastest techniques to overcome the resolution limit of classical light microscopy is high-resolution structured illumination microscopy. It makes visible details that are about a hundred nanometres in size. ...
How a fungus can cripple the immune system
Research team clarifies the mechanism of gliotoxin, a mycotoxin from the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus
11-Feb-2019 - It is everywhere – and it is extremely dangerous for people with a weakened immune system. The fungus Aspergillus fumigatus occurs virtually everywhere on Earth, as a dark grey, wrinkled cushion on damp walls or in microscopically small spores that blow through the air and cling to wallpaper, ...
