The Surprising Stretching Behaviour of DNA

What happens when you pull a DNA molecule? It behaves quite differently than we are used to from macroscopic objects


When large forces, for example in bridge construction, act on a heavy beam, the beam will be slightly deformed. Calculating the relationship between forces, internal stresses and deformations is one of the standard tasks in civil engineering. But what happens when you apply these considerations ...

Carragelose effective against SARS-CoV-2 in cell culture assays

Marinomed is now planning clinical tests using the same technology for an inhalation solution that could also work in the lungs


Marinomed Biotech AG announces that pre-clinical data show that Carragelose® has the potential to reduce the risk of an infection with SARS-CoV-2 and may also treat COVID-19. Data from Marinomed’s cell-culture study confirm that Carragelose® works in a dose-dependent manner to strongly reduce the ...

When immune cells aren’t in their senses

A key regulato rof the actin cytoskeleton ensures signal perception and prevents autoimmunity


One of the human immune system’s most importantand impressive features is its ability to reliably distinguish self from non-self. Invading pathogens, infected or malignant cells have to be eliminated while protecting healthy cells. To date, many aspects of this fine-tuned regulation have remained ...

Biofilms - an invisible threat to food safety

Hotspots for biofilms


Biofilms are potential sources of contamination in the food industry. A recent study by the FFoQSI Competence Center at the Vetmeduni Vienna investigated where they hide and what bacteria can be found in them. Biofilms can cause additional costs in production and are a source of danger to ...

Dust mite allergens trigger inflammatory responses

Dust mite allergens activate the pulmonary immune system, thereby triggering allergies


A research team at MedUni Vienna, working in cooperation with the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, has discovered how certain dust mite allergens activate a well-known inflammatory factor – serum amyloid A protein –and can thus “trim” the lung tissue “in the direction of allergy”. The ...

Cow's milk protein beta-lactoglobulin prevents allergies

New key molecule for the so-called protective farm effect


Numerous studies have shown that growing up on a farm and drinking natural, unprocessed cow's milk in early childhood protects against the development of immunoglobulins E (IgE), which are responsible for allergy symptoms. A recent study led by Franziska Roth-Walter and Erika Jensen-Jarolim from ...

Cellular stress causes cancer cell chemoresistance

Postgenomic technologies reveal new mechanism of stress-induced chemoresistance


Resistance of cancer cells against therapeutic agents is a major cause of treatment failure, especially in recurrent diseases. An international team around the biochemists Robert Ahrends from the University of Vienna and Jan Medenbach from the University of Regensburg identified a novel mechanism ...
