The RUB research team intends to use proteomics to accelerate the development of new drugs.
In Germany, the limit values for nitrate pollution have repeatedly been exceeded, partly due to fertilisers in the soil. Biopolymers could help.
From microorganisms to humans – all living organisms with a cell nucleus possess the Stripak signal-protein complex. A research team has gained new insights into its functions.
A research team genetically eliminated an unnecessary energy consumer. This means that less light is sufficient for catalysis.
If wood were to become more widely used as a building material, the climate could benefit significantly. A novel tool shows to what extent this would be the case in individual residential areas.
Some highly selective drugs cause unexpected effects in nerve cells: they not only reduce the activation of certain receptors, but also their inactivation.
A research team clears up 150 years of false assumptions.
Sports scientists have identified typical injury patterns. These findings help develop preventive measures.
Being born too soon can have long-term consequences for children’s school success.
For the first time, a research team examined pigeon brains using functional magnetic resonance imaging while the birds were actively involved in a discrimination task.
Yes and no, according to moral philosophy. Individual measures alone can’t stop climate change. We are therefore obliged to intervene as a collective.
Leaving oil behind and moving towards renewable raw materials: the chemical industry hopes to succeed in this with the help of microorganisms and enzymes.
Therapy and diagnostics of tumours in only one step is possible with the aid of so-called theranostic agents. A concept for a new one has been implemented at RUB.
Critically ill patients present a similar or even stronger immunity against the virus than convalescent patients. This supports the theory that severe infections might be linked to an exaggerated immune reaction.
To unmask their impairments, researchers had to come up with a unique experimental design.
A small but important step towards a successful immune reaction is performed by an impressive nanomachine. Researchers use simulations to understand how it works.
Bacterial enzymes are often powerful but also very sensitive catalysts. To call up their performance, they therefore need a special environment.
No one can remember the first years of their life. A study suggests possible reasons.
Efficient catalysts are crucial for energy conversion. However, findings from basic research rarely make it into practice at present.
In hydrogenase enzymes, the transports of protons and electrons have been considered to be separate events until now. However, coupling is the key to success here.
