Achilles Heel of Tumour Cells

06-Nov-2019

In almost all cases of colon cancer, a specific gene is mutated – this offers opportunities to develop broadly effective therapeutic approaches. Research teams in Würzburg have taken this a step further. In 90 percent of all cases of colon cancer, the tumour cells have one thing in common: the ...

News About Drug Delivery

01-Nov-2019

Nanocontainer for drugs can have their pitfalls: If they are too heavily loaded, they will only dissolve poorly. Why this happens is now reported by a Würzburg research group in "Angewandte Chemie". Nanocapsules and other containers can transport drugs through a patient's body directly to the ...

Spider silk: A malleable protein provides reinforcement

30-Sep-2019

Scientists from the University of Würzburg have discovered that spider silk contains an exceptional protein. It generates high bonding strength by making use of an amino acid scientists have hitherto paid little attention to. The finding could have important implications in many areas. Why are ...

Cell Division at High Speed

When two proteins work together, this worsens the prognosis for lung cancer patients

20-Jun-2019

In malignant tumours, the cells usually proliferate quickly and uncontrollably. A research team from the Biocenter of Julius-Maximilians-Universität (JMU) Würzburg in Bavaria, Germany, has discovered that two important regulators of cell division can interact in this process. If this is the case, ...

Protein BRCA1 as a Stress Coach

22-Mar-2019

Two proteins work hand in hand to ensure that the tumour cells of neuroblastoma can grow at full speed. In "Nature", a Würzburg research team shows how the proteins can do this. Anyone who has ever studied the molecular basis of breast cancer will probably have heard of the abbreviation BRCA1 – ...

Progress in Super-Resolution Microscopy

20-Dec-2018

Does expansion microscopy deliver true-to-life images of cellular structures? That was not sure yet. A new publication shows for the first time that the method actually works reliably. Immersing deeper and deeper into cells with the microscope. Imaging the nucleus and other structures more and ...

Molecular insights into spider silk

10-Dec-2018

Spider silk belongs to the toughest fibres in nature and has astounding properties. Scientists from the University of Würzburg discovered new molecular details of self-assembly of a spider silk fibre protein. They are lightweight, almost invisible, highly extensible and strong, and of course ...

A Step Ahead in Pharmaceutical Research

Researchers have developed a method that makes it possible to measure the activation of receptors in a very short time

07-Sep-2018

Hormones and other neurotransmitters, but also drugs, act upon receptors. “Their active substances bind to the receptors and modify the three-dimensional receptor arrangement regulating the downstream signal pathways,” says Hannes Schihada from the Institute for Pharmacology and Toxicology at the ...
