Tracing down linear ubiquitination: New technology enables detailed analysis of target proteins

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Volker Busskamp receives prize for application-oriented neurobiological research

(Goethe University Frankfurt) The young researcher has been awarded for his contribution to a gene therapy approach to treat retinitis pigmentosa and for the development of artificial neuronal circuits. Retinitis pigmentosa is an inherited eye disease that leads to blindness.

Yuan Chang and Patrick Moore win prize for the discovery of two cancer viruses

(Goethe University Frankfurt) Scientists looking for new tumor viruses have to keep an eye out for the virus genes rather than the viral particles. This year's winners of the Paul Ehrlich and Ludwig Darmstaedter Prize were twice successful with this strategy.

How to brew high-value fatty acids with brewer's yeast

(Goethe University Frankfurt) Researchers at Goethe University Frankfurt have succeeded in producing fatty acids in large quantities from sugar or waste containing sugar with the help of yeasts.

An utter shambles

(Goethe University Frankfurt) A research group found out: household chaos has an adverse effect on emotional climate and parents' behavior.

Gastrointestinal cancer: Physical exercise helps during chemo

(Goethe University Frankfurt) A young researcher of Goethe University has shown: walking or jogging helps patients with advanced gastrointestinal cancer to cope better with the side effects of chemotherapy.

More individual therapy for blood cancer patients

(Goethe University Frankfurt) Because it is impossible to predict which acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) patients will benefit, all patients are routinely treated with chemotherapy. Researchers from Goethe-University Frankfurt have now discovered a novel biomarker that enables the detection of therapy responders and non-responders with high accuracy.

Fundamental solid state phenomenon unraveled

(Goethe University Frankfurt) Researchers at Goethe University Frankfurt and Technische Universität Dresden have made a pioneering discovery during their study of a phase transition from an electrical conductor to an insulator (Mott metal-insulator transition).

Drugs from nature—big effects of multiple compounds in small amounts

A research group led by Professor Helge Bode from Goethe University Frankfurt has discovered a whole class of new peptides with which bacteria are able to kill insect larvae.

Partnership at a distance: Deep-frozen helium molecules

(Goethe University Frankfurt) As atomic physicists in Frankfurt have now been able to confirm, over 75 percent of the time helium atoms are so far apart that their bond can be explained only by the quantum-mechanical tunnel effect.

New chemistry of life

(Goethe University Frankfurt) A team of scientists under the lead of Ivan Dikic, Director of the Institute of Biochemistry II at Goethe University Frankfurt, has now discovered a novel mechanism of ubiquitination, by which Legionella bacteria can seize control over their host cells. Legionella causes deadly pneumonia in immunocompromised patients.

New chemistry of life: Novel ubiquitination mechanism explains pathogenic effects of Legionella infection

A team of scientists under the lead of Ivan Dikic, Director of the Institute of Biochemistry II at Goethe University Frankfurt, has now discovered a novel mechanism of ubiquitination, by which Legionella bacteria can seize control over their host cells. Legionella causes deadly pneumonia in immunocompromised patients.

Long-term remuneration of German board members could have a more lasting effect

(Goethe University Frankfurt) In Dax and MDax-listed companies, long-term remuneration generally takes the shape of cash and not shares, reveals a study by PwC and Goethe University Frankfurt.

New research training group at Goethe University Frankfurt: 'Configurations of Film'

(Goethe University Frankfurt) The first Research Training Group ever with a focus on film studies will be established at Goethe University Frankfurt. In the framework of the RTG with the title ;Configurations of Film', twelve doctoral...Show More Summary

Structure of 'Iron Hammer' protein complex solved

(Goethe University Frankfurt) An interdisciplinary research group from Goethe University Frankfurt, the EMBL in Heidelberg, and the Gene Center of the University of Munich (LMU) has succeeded in solving the structure of a central player in the process of translating the genetic code into Proteins. Its nickname is 'Iron Hammer'.

Which chemicals are hazardous to reproduction?

(Goethe University Frankfurt) Regulatory authorities around the world can in future instruct manufacturers of chemicals and drugs to check their products for harmful effects on reproduction by means of a new test with molluscs.

Energy storage system of tomorrow tested for the first time in Lake Constance

(Goethe University Frankfurt) How can the enormous amounts of electricity generated through offshore wind power be temporarily stored on site? Until now there was no answer to this question.

Use of bacteria to produce valuable substances from carbon dioxide

(Goethe University Frankfurt) Goethe University Frankfurt has now taken charge of a collaborative European project, the aim of which is to advance the development of processes for microbial, CO2-based biotechnology. The project will be funded over the next three years with two million Euro.

Successful calculation of human and natural influence on cloud formation

(Goethe University Frankfurt) Researchers have now used the results from the CLOUD Experiment at Cern for the first time to calculate the production of aerosol particles in all the Earth's regions and at different heights. The study is published in the journal 'Science'.

Distinction for Frankfurt physicist

(Goethe University Frankfurt) Professor Maria Roser Valenti has been elected as a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) in the 'Division of Computational Physics.' She was awarded this high distinction for her contribution to...Show More Summary
