New Computer Model Helps Design Complex 3D DNA Shapes

MIT biological engineers have created a new computer model that allows them to design the most complex three-dimensional DNA shapes ever produced, including rings, bowls, and geometric structures such as icosahedrons that resemble viral particles. [More]
Adhesion of E. coli Bacteria Can Be Controlled on New Synthetic Surface

Adhesion of E. coli Bacteria Can Be Controlled on New Synthetic Surface

A research team from Kiel University (CAU) and Goethe University Frankfurt have jointly created a synthetic surface on which the adhesion of E. coli bacteria can be controlled. The layer, which is only approximately four nanometres thick, imitates the saccharide coating (glycocalyx) of cells onto which the bacteria adhere such as during an infection. [More]

Ryanodine Receptors Inserted into Tiny Nano-Membranes for Protein Study

Ryanodine Receptors Inserted into Tiny Nano-Membranes for Protein Study

Whenever muscles contract, so-called ryanodine receptors come into play. Calcium ions, which are ultimately responsible for the contraction of muscle cells, are released from storage organs and flow through these ion channels. Defective ryanodine receptors can lead, for example, to cardiac arrhythmias or sudden heart failure. [More]
Bacterial 'Nanodrills' Punch Holes in Cells' Outer Membranes

Bacterial 'Nanodrills' Punch Holes in Cells' Outer Membranes

A team of scientists has revealed how certain harmful bacteria drill into our cells to kill them. Their study shows how bacterial 'nanodrills' assemble themselves on the outer surfaces of our cells, and includes the first movie of how they then punch holes in the cells' outer membranes. [More]
