Multifunctional nano-sized drug carriers based on reactive polypept(o)ides

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) In cooperation with researchers from the University of Tokyo and Gutenberg Research Awardee Prof. Kazunori Kataoka, Chemists from Mainz have been able to demonstrate that reactive polypept(o)ides constitute ideal building blocks to control morphology and function of carrier systems in a simple but precise manner.

Chemical profile of ants adapts rapidly

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Biologists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz in Germany recently established that ants can adapt their hydrocarbon profile quickly during the course of evolution and rapidly adapt to external selection pressures.

New theory on the origin of dark matter

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Scientists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz in Germany have come up with a new theory on how dark matter may have been formed shortly after the origin of the universe. This new model proposes an alternative to the WIMP paradigm that is the subject of various experiments in current research.

Mainz-based researchers stabilized gold in very rare oxidation state +II

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) A team of chemists led by Professor Katja Heinze at the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry and Analytical Chemistry of JGU has been able to isolate and analyze gold in the very rare oxidation state +II. Show More Summary

Modern domestic dog has a single geographic origin

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) By analyzing the DNA of two prehistoric dogs from Germany, an international research team has determined that their genomes were the probable ancestors of modern European dogs. The study also suggests that all contemporary dogs have a common origin and emerged through a single domestication process of wolves 20,000 to 40,000 years ago.

German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds research on jihadist videos

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) As part of the Research for Civil Security 2012-2017 framework program of the German Federal Government, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research is providing €2.7 million to the junior research group on 'Jihadism on the Internet' at the Department of Anthropology and African Studies at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz.

New insight into how telomeres protect cells from premature senescence

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Researchers at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz have further uncovered the secrets of telomeres, the caps that protect the ends of our chromosomes. They discovered that an RNA molecule called TERRA helps to ensure that very short (or broken) telomeres get fixed again. Show More Summary

Funding of research center developing nanomaterials for cancer immunotherapy extended

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) The German Research Foundation (DFG) has agreed to fund the Mainz-based Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1066 'Nanodimensional Polymer Therapeutics for Tumor Therapy' involved in the development of nanomaterials for cancer immunotherapy for another four years to the end of June 2021.
