In the new research, a team of scientists led by David Staněk (IMG) described a protein that ensures correct assembly, and thus the function of the so-called splicing complex, one of the largest molecular complexes in human cells composed of 150 different components. [continue]
Congratulation to Klára Klimešová, Jitka Vojáčková, David Staněk, and other co-authors on a recent publication in Nature Communications
Director of IMG cordially congratulates Klára Klimešová, Jitka Vojáčková, David Staněk, and other co-authors on a recent publication in Nature Communications
Experts from the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the Czech Academy of Sciences managed to find a hitherto unknown protein and describe its role in cell division. Their knowledge could be used in the future to control cell division in anticancer treatment. [continue]
The new cryoelectron microscope will allow scientists to observe lipids and better understand what is happening in the heart of cells
The modern method of cryoelectron microscopy shows cellular structures in almost atomic resolution and allows a better understanding of the chemical bonds and functioning of living organisms.
An international team lead by Zdenek Trachtulec deciphered the control of the positioning of DNA breaks in the developing germ cells of laboratory rat.
