Research team genetically eliminated an unnecessary energy consumer - This means that less light is sufficient for catalysis
Researchers from Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) and Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) show in the journal ACS Catalysis from 4 September 2020 how the catalytic activity of cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae, can be significantly increased. This brings biotechnological and thus ...
New perspectives for applications in industrial biorefineries
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 ...
Sustainable light sources
In the FET Open project ENABLED, TU Graz protein-designer Gustav Oberdorfer is working together with researchers from Spain and Italy on environmentally friendly and inexpensive light-emitting diodes. The basis for this vision is being laid at the Institute of Biochemistry at Graz University of ...
Mechanism of Adipose-Biosynthesis decoded – the basis for the production of sugar molecules for neu fine chemicals or biopharmaceuticals
In every weather situation, plants need to be robust and flexible at the same time. These structural properties come from its cell wall: It’s responsible to keep the plant in shape, to compensate its osmotic pressure and to protect it against pathogens e.g. bacteria, viruses or fungal attacks. ...
Some of the body’s proteins are not just made up of amino acids, they are also ‘decorated’ with lipid chains, which significantly influence the biological functions of the protein. An example is the Ras protein, which plays a role in the development of many types of cancers and is only active and ...
New simulation technology is designed to make the production of biopharmaceuticals more efficient, cost-effective and comprehensible
Demand for biopharmaceuticals is strong: biopharmaceutical active ingredients – in other words, genetically engineered drugs – accounted for seven of the ten top-selling medications in the world in 2018. And the proportion is set to rise, as biopharmaceuticals can be used to combat conditions ...
Breakthrough in groundbreaking features in medical imaging
Under the leadership of TU Graz, an international research team has developed a contrast medium concept for MRI, promising unprecedented features in medical imaging. Molecular imaging techniques are playing an increasingly important role in medical diagnostics and developing new treatment ...
Electrodes for longterm monitoring of electrical impulses of heart or muscles in the form of temporary tattoos produced using an ink-jet printer. An international research group involving TU Graz presents this novel method. In the case of diagnostic methods such as electrocardiogram (ECG) and ...
The biocatalytic production of chemicals should become considerably more sustainable
A carpet of blue-green algae can literally ‘cloud’ the summer’s swimming pleasure at the lake. This is caused by a few strains of photosynthetically active microalgae, also known as cyanobacteria. Other harmless strains of cyanobacteria have great potential for biotechnological applications and ...
Microbial induced concrete corrosion causes massive damage to wastewater plants
Wastewater systems are integral to infrastructure in every community. In an ideal world, they operate smoothly and are long-lasting. But biogenic transformation processes in sewage and water treatment systems are a “natural enemy” of conventional plants, frequently causing damage to concrete and ...
