Mapping polymerase modifications

Scientists at LMU Munich and Helmholtz Zentrum have developed a method for the thorough analysis of protein modifications. 

Scientists revive microscopic tardigrade after 30 years of deep freeze

Researchers in Japan have successfully revived a microscopic creature called a tardigrade (informally known as a ‘water bear’) that has been kept frozen for 30 years. Until this new record was set, the previous interval between freezing and reviving a tardigrade had only been nine years.

Yin and yang in retinal degeneration

Mutations in the peripherin-2 gene are among the major causes of retinal degeneration. LMU researchers have now discovered why different mutations in the gene...

A Respiratory Virus Provides Clues to Possible Treatments

In August 2014, an outbreak of mild-to-severe respiratory illnesses struck thousands of children in the U.S. More than 1100 cases were confirmed to have...

Faulty building blocks in DNA

Enzymes called DNA polymerases assemble DNA from 2´-deoxyribonucleoside triphosphate building blocks in the cell. Normally they can distinguish DNA building blocks from the ribonucleotides...

Scientists measure real rates of change in global gene expression levels...

An interdisciplinary group of researchers has shown for the first time that it is feasible to determine the rate of change of gene transcript...

Persistence wins out with discovery that could lead to cure for...

An international research team has discovered an important new genetic target for the development of possible treatments for the common inherited blood diseases sickle cell anaemia and thalassaemia.

How neurons lose their connections

Scientists identify protein that allows brain cells to dampen their sensitivity.
