X-ray experiments reveal important mechanism behind parkinsonian disorders

Gene defect in hereditary forms of the neurological disorder results in manganese poisoning inside cells

21-Jan-2019

A new X-ray study has revealed one of the key mechanisms behind certain familial-parkinsonian disorders. The study demonstrates in detail how poisoning with the metal manganese occurs inside a cell, leading to parkinsonian symptoms. It found that a specific genetic defect results in manganese ...

How to shoot the messenger

EMBL scientists shed light on cellular communication systems involved in neurodegeneration, cancer and cardiovascular disease

28-Jan-2010

Cells rely on a range of signaling systems to communicate with each other and to control their own internal workings. Scientists from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Hamburg, Germany, have now found a way to hack into a vital communications system, raising the possibility of ...

Bacterium helps formation of gold

09-Oct-2009

Australian scientists have found that the bacterium Cupriavidus metallidurans catalyses the biomineralisation of gold by transforming toxic gold compounds to their metallic form using active cellular mechanism. Researchers reported the presence of bacteria on gold surfaces but have never clearly ...
