Persistent dysfunction in natural killer cells has been implicated in severe COVID-19 progressions

14-Sep-2021

Based on previous studies of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is known that a specific form of white immune cells, natural killer (NK) cells, make an important contribution to the early antiviral immune response against SARS-CoV-2. An international team led by the University of Bonn has now found that ...

Genetic program protects neurons from degeneration

Study finds genes in fruit flies that are presumed to have a similar function in humans

17-Aug-2021

Researchers at the University of Bonn have identified a previously unknown genetic program in the fruit fly. The genetic material involved controls the development of the neurons while also protecting them from degeneration. They have hardly changed in the course of evolution over hundreds of ...

Novel method for fast 3D microscopy

03-Aug-2021

Researchers at the ImmunoSensation2 Cluster of Excellence at the University of Bonn, the University Hospital and the research center caesar have develop a method that allows using multi-focal images to reconstruct the movement of fast biological processes in 3D. In the past, many discoveries ...

A tapeworm drug against COVID-19?

Charité conducts clinical trial to test potential new treatment

22-Jun-2021

Researchers from the German Center for Infection Research (DZIF) at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the University of Bonn have examined the way in which SARS-CoV-2 reprograms the metabolism of the host cell in order to gain an overall advantage. According to their report in Nature ...

Researchers investigate structural changes in snap-frozen proteins

A novel method allows visualization of molecular motions lasting a few millionths of a second

03-May-2021

Researchers at the University of Bonn and the research center caesar have succeeded in ultra-fast freezing proteins after a precisely defined period of time. They were able to follow structural changes on the microsecond time scale and with sub-nanometer precision. Owing to its high spatial and ...

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 ...
