High-speed method for identifying and sorting cells requires no external cell labeling
In medicine and biology, there is great interest in efficient and inexpensive methods for identifying and separating different cell types, for example for medical diagnostics or for regenerative therapies using stem cells. Up to this point, the method of choice has been the so-called flow ...
New Genome Modification Technology: CRISPR/Cas Revolutionizes Crop Cultivation by Specific Combination of Properties
The CRISPR/Cas molecular scissors work like a fine surgical instrument and can be used to modify genetic information in plants. The research teams of Professor Holger Puchta of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Professor Andreas Houben from the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and ...
Triterpenoid acids pack a punch against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus
Scientists have identified specific compounds from the Brazilian peppertree -- a weedy, invasive shrub in Florida -- that reduce the virulence of antibiotic-resistant staph bacteria. Scientific Reports published the research, demonstrating that triterpenoid acids in the red berries of the plant ...
The work raises the need for a balance between the Pinkman protein and the sHSPs proteins during the development of the nervous system for its correct formation
An alteration, either by excess or by default, in the number of synapses (the points of contact between neurons where the transmission of the nerve impulse occurs) is associated with the development of cognitive, morphological and psychiatric disorders, hence the importance of being able to ...
Why some people eat as much as they want and stay lean while others can´t
An international team of researchers with the participation of IMBA - Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences – reports the discovery of a thinness gene - ALK – conserved in evolution from flies to mice and importantly in very thin humans. A noticeable impact on ...
Microroller could to revolutionize the minimally invasive treatment of illnesses
A team of scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) in Stuttgart invented a tiny microrobot that resembles a white blood cell travelling through the circulatory system. It has the shape, the size and the moving capabilities of leukocytes and could perhaps be well ...
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 ...
Cutting-edge technology allows for real-time monitoring of biomineralisation
21st century societal challenges such as demographic developments and an ageing population demand for new functional materials, such as for bone prostheses. Nature often serves as inspiration when designing these materials. In a recent study published in Analytical Chemistry, a team led by ERC ...
A new article looks at cancer from the point of view of evolution
A new study by researchers at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (IBE), a joint centre of the UPF and the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), shows that, surprisingly, the distribution of mutations in human tumours is more similar to that of chimpanzees and gorillas than to that of ...
Future applications primarily in the production of active pharmaceutical ingredients, but also in the synthesis of fine chemicals expected
In the bioeconomy, biotechnological processes are replacing processes that rely on fossil resources. Microorganisms and enzymes are being used in targeted fashion as biocatalysts for industrial production. Researchers at the University of Bayreuth have now discovered an enzyme that offers great ...
