Empty spaces, how do they make a protein unstable?

Partial unfolding of proteins can be a big problem in industry, as it may affect the stability of products. So how does an empty space or cavity in its hydrophobic core destabilize a protein? And would such a cavity in fact be empty? These are some of the questions researchers from Aarhus University answer in a new study.

Molecular biologists are successful with spin-out company

Four molecular biologists from Aarhus University have started a spin-out company that offers to identify very small differences between biological samples with a special technique. The researchers build on the experience they gained when they were students and postdocs at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics/iNANO with a special…

Congratulations to Associate Professor Rikke Louise Meyer (iNANO and Dept. of Bioscience) who has received this year's Industrial Collaboration Award given by Science and Technology, Aarhus University's faculty of science and technology.

Using gadolinium (contrast agent used in MRI scans) may revolutionize the application of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy as a tool for more comprehensive and useful analysis of urine samples (Image: Colourbox.) 
A proton NMR spectrum. Signals are due to different metabolites, with their peak integrals equal to their amount. Along the y-axis the T1 recovery time constant for each peak in the absence (red) and presence (blue) of adjuvant. This means that the lower T1, the faster the recording. (Graphics by Frans Mulder.)

New efficient method for urine analysis may tell us more

Our urine reveals our well-being and how we treat our body. A researcher at Aarhus University has developed an effective method of analysis for examining the constituents of a urine sample, using contrast agent, as a cost-effective adjuvant. This can have a major impact on future healthcare.

On the raw electron micrographs (A), one can find the individual protein molecules (green boxes). By taking an average of thousands of such similarly oriented particles, one can get sharp two-dimensional images (B), from which one can calculate the protein's three-dimensional structure (C). Finally, one can interpret this result by building a model of the protein (D). Image: Milena Timcenko.

Groundbreaking cryo-electron microscopy at Aarhus University reveals the first structures of a protein that maintains cell membranes

Using cutting-edge electron microscopy, researchers from Aarhus University have determined the first structures of a lipid-flippase. The discoveries provide a better understanding of the basics of how cells work and stay healthy, and can eventually increase our knowledge of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
