Environmentally friendly production of mandelic acid

Scientists found a method for the "green" production of the important starting material for the chemical industry

29-May-2020

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 ...

Microbes on microscope eyepieces: could mean one in the eye for users!

Microscope oculars as carriers of infectious pathogens?

29-May-2020

"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 ...

Triggered by light, a novel way to switch on an enzyme

Researchers identify enzyme which becomes catalytically active by light

28-May-2020

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 ...

Gene editing: Taming CRISPR’s collateral damage

Simple method to detect unintended alterations in the target gene itself – results indicate that such on-target events occur at high frequency

28-May-2020

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 ...
