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]
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.
A newly developed antibody targets all major coronavirus mutations, Czech researchers have confirmed
An international team of scientists has developed a double antibody that is very effective in protecting against coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.
The most common retroviruses in domestic poultry use vitamin B12 receptors to enter cells. In particular, they are avian leukosis viruses (ALVs), which can cause for example cancer in chickens.
