KR2-Komplex in der seitlichen Oberflächendarstellung
Versatile Switch for Light-Controlled Cells
9 April 2015 - Scientists from Jülich, Grenoble, Frankfurt and Moscow uncovered the atomic structure of KR2, a light-driven transporter for sodium ions which had only recently been discovered. Based on the structural information the team then identified a simple way to turn KR2 from a sodium- into a potassium pump using simple means. The findings have been published in the journal Nature Structural and Molecular Biology.

Microswimmers – From Single Particle Motion to Collective Behaviour
The study of the mechanisms and dynamics of autonomous microswimmers is a fascinating field at the cutting edge of science. It combines the biophysics of self-propulsion via motor proteins, artificial propulsion mechanisms, swimming strategies at low Reynolds numbers, the hydrodynamic interaction of swimmers, and the collective motion of large numbers of agents.
