Mycoplasma genitalium's cell adhesion mechanism revealed

Researchers from the Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona (IBMB-CSIC) and the Institute of Biotechnology and Biomedicine (IBB-UAB) have discovered the mechanism by which the bacterium Mycoplasma genitalium (Mgen) adheres ...

Image: 3-D-molded interconnect devices

An alternative to conventional circuit boards, these '3-D-molded interconnect devices' add electrical connectivity to the surface of three-dimensional structures.

The cryo-electron microscopy structure of huntingtin

Mutations on a single gene, the huntingtin gene, are the cause of Huntington's disease. They lead to an incorrect form of the correspondent protein. With the help of cryo-electron microscopy researchers from the Max Planck ...

New interaction mechanism of proteins discovered

UZH researchers have discovered a previously unknown way in which proteins interact with one another and cells organize themselves. This new mechanism involves two fully unstructured proteins forming an ultra-high-affinity ...

Metabolic modelling becomes three-dimensional

An international research consortium has developed, with significant involvement of Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) scientists, the first computer model to include 3-D in the representation of human metabolic ...

Sticking sugar to protein

ETH researchers have succeeded in determining the 3-D structure of the enzyme that attaches sugar chains to proteins – a breakthrough that they recently published in the journal Science.
