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.

Focus

Autophagie (Platzhalter)

Autophagy

Autophagy is a highly conserved mechanism in eukaryotes to degrade cellular components. Autophagy plays an important role both in the baseline turnover of intracellular proteins and organelles, as well as in the production of amino acids under starvation conditions. We investigate proteins that are involved in this process. More: Autophagy …

Alzheimer2

Alzheimer′ s Disease

Alzheimer´s disease is a progressive, neurodegenerative disorder and the most common type of dementia. Currently more than 24 million people are affected worldwide. Our research focusses on developing methods for pre-symptomatic diagnosis and new therapeutic approaches. More: Alzheimer′ s Disease …
