Molecular factories: The combination between nature and chemistry is functional

13-Jan-2020

Researchers at the University of Basel have succeeded in developing molecular factories that mimic nature. To achieve this they loaded artificial organelles inside micrometer-sized natural blisters (vesicles) produced by cells. These molecular factories remain intact even after injection into an ...

How bacteria control their cell cycle

07-Jan-2020

Researchers at the Biozentrum of the University have demonstrated how bacteria coordinate cell division with the replication of their genetic material. In an interdisciplinary study they explain why the current concept of the bacterial cell cycle has to be rewritten. Each living cell grows and ...

Novel combination of antibodies leads to significant improvement in cancer immunotherapy

02-Jan-2020

The simultaneous use of antibodies based on two differing mechanisms of action leads to a more effective destruction of tumors. This has been demonstrated by a study in animal models by medical oncologists and scientists at the University of Basel that has been published in the scientific journal ...

Molecular bodyguards against Parkinson’s disease

06-Dec-2019

Chaperone proteins in human cells dynamically interact with the protein α-Synuclein, which is strongly associated with Parkinson’s disease. A disturbed relationship to these “bodyguards” leads to cell damage and the formation of Lewy bodies typical for Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease is ...

Magnesium deprivation stops pathogen growth

25-Nov-2019

When pathogens invade the cells, our body combats them using various methods. Researchers at the University of Basel’s Biozentrum have now been able to show how a cellular pump keeps such invading pathogens in check. As the researchers report in “Science”, this pump causes a magnesium shortage, ...

Why Some Forms of Leukemia Only Affect Children

01-Nov-2019

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) mainly affects children, with the prognosis often being poor despite several decades of research into more effective treatments. A new study led by researchers from the University of Basel and from Gustave Roussy Institute, Paris, explains why some forms of leukemia ...

A new strategy for the synthesis of complex natural products

11-Oct-2019

Chemists from the University of Basel have succeeded in synthesizing two complex natural products from the group of dithiodiketopiperazines (DTPs). For this, they employed a new strategy based on “C-H bond activation,” resulting in a short and high yielding route. In the of the Journal of the ...

Too much of a good thing: overactive immune cells trigger inflammation

20-Sep-2019

Scientists describe a previously unknown disorder of the immune system: in a distinct subset of immune cells from patients with primary immunodeficiency, cellular respiration is significantly increased. This cellular metabolic overactivity leads to inflammation, as an international research team ...

Unique fingerprint: What makes nerve cells unmistakable?

12-Sep-2019

Protein variations that result from the process of alternative splicing control the identity and function of nerve cells in the brain. This allows organisms to build a highly complex neuronal network with only a limited number of genes. The study describing a detailed map of neuronal splicing ...

Signal blocks stem cell division in the geriatric brain

30-Aug-2019

Scientists from Basel have investigated the activity of stem cells in the brain of mice and discovered a key mechanism that controls cell proliferation. According to the researchers, the gene regulator Id4 controls whether stem cells remain in a state of rest or enter cell division. The results ...
