Scientists found a method for the "green" production of the important starting material for the chemical industry
Sometimes potentially useful enzymes are not easy to discover because their biocatalytic capabilities may go beyond their natural and thus known range of action. By recombining a newly discovered enzymatic capability, a research team from the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology led ...
Kumovis closes Series A funding led by Renolit and Solvay
Kumovis, the developer of the world’s first 3D printer with clean room integration, announced that it has raised a €3.6 million Series A funding round. In Renolit SE and Solvay Ventures, the Munich-based start-up has found two additional partners on its way to establish industrial additive ...
Evotec participates in Exscientia's financing round
Evotec SE announced that the Company has participated in the Series C funding round of Exscientia, the Artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven drug discovery company. The funding round led by new investor Novo Holdings raised $ 60 m with the existing investors’ consortium consisting of Evotec, ...
Microscope oculars as carriers of infectious pathogens?
"For once we wanted to use our microscopes, not to help us observe microorganisms, but to examine more closely their role as potential vectors of infectious pathogens. Very little was known about this until now," explains the head of the study, Prof. Dr. Markus Egert, a lecturer in microbiology ...
Neandertal progesterone receptor has a favourable effect on fertility
One in three women in Europe inherited the receptor for progesterone from Neandertals – a gene variant associated with increased fertility, fewer bleedings during early pregnancy and fewer miscarriages. This is according to a study published by researchers at the Max Planck Institute for ...
Researchers identify enzyme which becomes catalytically active by light
In living cells, enzymes drive biochemical metabolic processes enabling reactions to take place efficiently. It is this very ability which allows them to be used as catalysts in biotechnology, for example to create chemical products such as pharmaceutics. Researchers now identified an enzyme ...
Simple method to detect unintended alterations in the target gene itself – results indicate that such on-target events occur at high frequency
CRISPR-Cas9 can alter genes at pre-defined sites in specific ways, but it does not always act as planned. An LMU team has now developed a simple method to detect unintended ‘on-target’ events, and shown that they often occur in human stem cells. The gene-editing system CRISPR-Cas9 has ...
Synaptic protein waste" was collected more quickly when the presynaptic protein bassoon is missing
Synapses consist of hundreds of different proteins. For correct transmission of brain signals, their building blocks must constantly be checked for functionality and replaced by new ones. A team of researchers from the Leibniz Institute of Neurobiology Magdeburg, the German Centre for ...
High-speed method for identifying and sorting cells requires no external cell labeling
In medicine and biology, there is great interest in efficient and inexpensive methods for identifying and separating different cell types, for example for medical diagnostics or for regenerative therapies using stem cells. Up to this point, the method of choice has been the so-called flow ...
“Mini-laboratory” provides test results in 30 to 40 minutes
Spindiag GmbH, a medical technology start-up company founded four years ago as a spin-off of the Hahn-Schickard Institute for Microanalytical Systems, announced the completion of a 16.3 million Euros (USD 17.8 million) Series B financing round as expected. Existing investors as well as ...
