Breaking research from science, medicine and technology.

A University of Colorado Cancer Center study published in the journal Oncogene pinpoints a protein that may be essential to Ewing’s sarcoma metastasis — when researchers knocked down the protein KDM3A in Ewing’s sarcoma tumor cells, one of a family known as Jumonji proteins, they …

Material researchers of Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen Nürnberg have come a step closer to their goal of providing large diamond foils for practical applications. In a test reactor, they have succeeded in producing the world’s largest diamond foil with a diameter of 28 cm. Diamond foils …

The molecular causes of diseases such as Parkinson’s need to be understood as a first step towards combating them. University of Konstanz chemists working alongside Professor Malte Drescher recently succeeded in analysing what happens when selective mutations of the alpha-synuclein protein occur — a protein …

Carbapenems are among the ‘antibiotics of last resort’ and can fight infections for which other drugs have longlost their effectiveness. However, even carbapenem-resistant pathogenic strains have emerged over the last decades. …read more Source: EurekAlert

Nothing works without proteins in the body, they are the molecular all-rounders in our cells. If they do not work properly, severe diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, may result. To develop methods to repair malfunctioning proteins, their structure has to be known. Using a big data …
