Adaptive immune response: New cofactor of roquin identified

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Roquin has a key role in the adaptive immune response. It controls the activation and differentiation of T cells and thus helps to make the decisions whether or not and which type of immune response will be mounted. Show More Summary

Autoimmune reaction successfully halted in early stage islet autoimmunity

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Scientists at Helmholtz Zentrum München have discovered a mechanism that amplifies the autoimmune reaction in an early stage of pancreatic islet autoimmunity prior to the progression to clinical type 1 diabetes.

Selenium protects a specific type of interneurons in the brain

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Exactly 200 years after the discovery of the trace element selenium, researchers at Helmholtz Zentrum München have shown for the first time why this chemical element is indispensable for mammalian life. Show More Summary

Stem cell research: (Re)-acquiring the potential to become everything

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) A new study in 'Nature Genetics' identifies a specific population of pluripotent embryonic stem cells that can reprogram to totipotent-like cells in culture. Show More Summary

(Re)-acquiring the potential to become everything

A new study in Nature Genetics identifies a specific population of pluripotent embryonic stem cells that can reprogram to totipotent-like cells in culture. Moreover, the scientists of Helmholtz Zentrum München and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU) have identified bottlenecks and drivers of this reprogramming.

Vitamin deficiency in later life

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) One in two persons aged 65 and above has suboptimal levels of vitamin D in the blood. This is the conclusion of an investigation conducted by researchers at the Helmholtz Zentrum München, as part of the population-based KORA-Age study in the region of Augsburg. Show More Summary

New sensor measures calcium concentrations deep inside tissue

Key processes in the body are controlled by the concentration of calcium in and around cells. A team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Helmholtz Zentrum München have developed the first sensor molecule that is able to visualize calcium in living animals with the help of a radiation-free imaging technique known as optoacoustics. Show More Summary

Visible signals from brain and heart

Computer analysis fills gaps in antibody blueprint

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Antibodies defend our bodies against intruders. These molecules consist of proteins with attached sugars. However, the blueprint directing the processing of these sugars on the protein was not well understood until now. Show More Summary

How obesity promotes breast cancer

Obesity leads to the release of cytokines into the bloodstream which impact the metabolism of breast cancer cells, making them more aggressive as a result. Scientists from Helmholtz Zentrum München, Technische Universität München (TUM), and Heidelberg University Hospital report on this in 'Cell Metabolism'. Show More Summary

How the lungs of premature babies can undergo damage

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Premature babies that need ventilation to support their breathing often suffer from a condition known as bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Researchers at the Helmholtz...Show More Summary

Cancer drug stimulates tripolar mode of mitosis

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Taxanes inhibit cell division and make cancer cells sensitive to radiation therapy. A current study has investigated the underlying mechanisms of this action - and which biomarkers may be useful for predicting the success of therapy. Show More Summary

Immune cells help fat deal with environmental challenges

Immunosuppressive regulatory T-cells play an important role in the functioning of adipose tissue. This is the discovery of scientists from the Helmholtz Diabetes Center (HDC) at Helmholtz Zentrum München and the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Their findings are published in the journal Cell Metabolism.
