Molecule attacks coronavirus in a novel way

29-Mar-2021

Scientists at the University of Bonn and the caesar research center have isolated a molecule that might open new avenues in the fight against SARS coronavirus 2. The active ingredient binds to the spike protein that the virus uses to dock to the cells it infects. This prevents them from entering ...

Bioplastics in the sustainability dilemma

Scientists investigate the factors affecting the global land use impacts and CO2 emissions of plant-based plastics

09-Feb-2021

Plastics made from crops such as maize or sugarcane instead of fossil fuels are generally considered sustainable. One reason is that plants bind CO2, which compensates for the carbon released into the atmosphere when plastics are disposed. However, there is a catch: With increasing demand for raw ...

COVID-19 has multiple faces

Scientists present latest findings on the coronavirus

20-Jan-2021

According to current studies, the COVID-19 disease which is caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus comprises at least five different variants. These differ in how the immune system responds to the infection. Researchers from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the University ...

New promising antibodies against SARS-CoV-2

Spin-off will test the nanobodies in clinical studies

14-Jan-2021

An international research team led by the University of Bonn (Germany) has identified and further developed novel antibody fragments against the SARS coronavirus-2. These "nanobodies" are much smaller than the classic antibodies. They therefore penetrate the tissue better and can be produced more ...

Bacterium produces pharmaceutical all-purpose weapon

And can also be easily cultivated in the laboratory

13-Jan-2021

For some years, an active substance from the leaves of an ornamental plant has been regarded as a possible forerunner of a new group of potent drugs. So far, however, it has been very laborious to manufacture it in large quantities. That could now change: Researchers at the University of Bonn ...

Intelligence deficit: Conclusion from the mouse to the human being

Researchers create an animal model for studying GPI anchor deficiencies

11-Jan-2021

Impaired intelligence, movement disorders and developmental delays are typical for a group of rare diseases that belong to GPI anchor deficiencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn and the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics used genetic engineering methods to create a mouse that ...

Customized programming of human stem cells

The results open new possibilities in research

02-Dec-2020

Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) have the potential to convert into a wide variety of cell types and tissues. However, the "recipes" for this conversion are often complicated and difficult to implement. Researchers at the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD) at TU Dresden, Harvard ...

Genetic disposition protects immune system from aging

Study reveals a previously unknown function of a human gene

11-Nov-2020

A genetic disposition that plays a role in the development of the heart in the embryo also appears to play a key role in the human immune system. This is shown by a recent study led by the University of Bonn. When the gene is not active enough, the immune defense system undergoes characteristic ...

Should I or shouldn't I?

Nerve cell activity shows how confident we are

13-Oct-2020

The activity of individual nerve cells in the brain tells us how confident we are in our decisions. This is shown by a recent study by researchers at the University of Bonn. The result is unexpected - the researchers were actually on the trail of a completely different evaluation mechanism. You ...

New method allows precise gene control by light

Study enhances research toolbox with a new tool with great potential

02-Oct-2020

A novel optical switch makes it possible to precisely control the lifespan of genetic "copies". These are used by the cell as building instructions for the production of proteins. The method was developed by researchers from the universities of Bonn and Bayreuth. It may significantly advance the ...
