Breaking down stubborn cellulose in time lapse

New perspectives for applications in industrial biorefineries

22-May-2020

Researchers at TU Graz in Austria have for the first time ever succeeded in visualizing at the single-molecule level the processes involved in a biological nanomachine, known as the cellulosome, as it degrades crystalline cellulose. The fundamental insights thus obtained could support sustainable ...

On our way to the bio-economy: High-performance biocatalyst discovered

Future applications primarily in the production of active pharmaceutical ingredients, but also in the synthesis of fine chemicals expected

22-May-2020

In the bioeconomy, biotechnological processes are replacing processes that rely on fossil resources. Microorganisms and enzymes are being used in targeted fashion as biocatalysts for industrial production. Researchers at the University of Bayreuth have now discovered an enzyme that offers great ...

CureVac's coronavirus vaccine candidate shows positive pre-clinical results at low dose

First phase 1/2a clinical trial in healthy volunteers in June 2020 planned

15-May-2020

CureVac AG announced positive pre-clinical results at a low dose for its lead vaccine candidate against the novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). The data showed a fast induction of a balanced immune response with high levels of virus neutralizing titers (VNTs) and T-cell responses. VNTs are a major ...

Light drives injection

By coupling a bacterial injection system with a light-controlled molecular switch, scientists are able to inject proteins into eukaryontic cells

15-May-2020

When bacteria such as Salmonella or Yersinia cause fever, diarrhoea or abdominal pain, tiny "injection needles" are at work: their type 3 secretion system, or T3SS for short, shoots bacterial virulence proteins directly into the eukaryotic host cells. Researchers have thought of using bacterial ...

A new, highly sensitive chemical sensor uses protein nanowires

UMass Amherst team introduces high-performing 'green' electronic sensor

15-May-2020

Writing in the journal NanoResearch, a team at the University of Massachusetts Amherst reports that they have developed bioelectronic ammonia gas sensors that are among the most sensitive ever made. The sensor uses electric-charge-conducting protein nanowires derived from the bacterium Geobacter ...

Unexpectedly potent protein droplets

Researchers discover new pathomechanism of hereditary diseases in cell condensates

11-May-2020

Repeats of individual building blocks within proteins are the cause of many hereditary diseases, but how such repeats actually cause disease is still largely unknown. Researchers in Berlin investigated how repeat elongations lead to the disease synpolydactyly, and have found that the attractive ...

Lipid Metabolism Controls Brain Development

Diminished stem cell activity reduces cognitive performance

11-May-2020

A lipid metabolism enzyme controls brain stem cell activity and lifelong brain development. If the enzyme does not work correctly, it causes learning and memory deficits in humans and mice, as researchers at the University of Zurich have discovered. Regulating stem cell activity via lipid ...

Biofuel for ships

Diesel and gasoline sourced from renewables produces a lot less greenhouse gas

07-May-2020

The combustion of conventional fossil fuels accounts for a large share of global CO2 emissions. A great deal of criticism is levelled against cruise and merchant ships for polluting the environment with sooty waste gas and toxic heavy fuels. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for ...

Energy of the future: photosynthetic hydrogen from bacteria

How cyanobacteria can be transformed into hydrogen factories

06-May-2020

The transition from fossil fuels to a renewable energy supply is one of the most important global challenges of the 21st century. In order to achieve the internationally-agreed target of limiting global warming to a maximum of 1.5 degrees, the international community must drastically reduce ...
