New method reveals how the Parkinson's disease protein damages cell membranes

The method makes it possible to study tiny quantities of biological molecules without using fluorescent markers

03-Jul-2020

In sufferers of Parkinson's disease, clumps of α-synuclein (alpha-synuclein), sometimes known as the 'Parkinson's protein', are found in the brain. These destroy cell membranes, eventually resulting in cell death. Now, a new method developed at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, reveals ...

Ancient enzymes can contribute to greener chemistry

Several billion-year-old enzymes resurrected and a completely new non-natural reaction catalysed

15-Jun-2020

A research team at Uppsala University has resurrected several billion-year-old enzymes and reprogrammed them to catalyse completely different chemical reactions than their modern versions can manage. The method can be used to develop sustainable solutions within biotechnology, such as for enzyme ...

Coat of proteins makes viruses more infectious and links them to Alzheimer's disease

28-May-2019

New research from Stockholm University and Karolinska Institutet shows that viruses interact with proteins in the biological fluids of their host which results in a layer of proteins on the viral surface. This coat of proteins makes the virus more infectious and facilitates the formation of ...

Bacteria could become a future source of electricity

28-Mar-2019

In recent years, researchers have tried to capture the electrical current that bacteria generate through their own metabolism. So far, however, the transfer of the current from the bacteria to a receiving electrode has not been efficient at all. Now, researchers from institutions including Lund ...
