Professor Poul Nissen awarded Anders Jahre's large medical award 2021

One of the Nordic region's most prestigious research prizes, the Anders Jahre Prize, goes to Professor Poul Nissen from Aarhus University. Poul Nissen is awarded the prize for his research in the transport of proteins in and out of cells. This knowledge is of great importance for understanding diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and…

Binding site I of SERCA is not conserved in LMCA1. Alignment between LMCA1 G4 E2-BeF3- (red) and SERCA E2-AlF4- (pdb: 3b9r) (dark grey). Relevant Ca2+-coordinating residues are shown as sticks. The structures are aligned by the residues shown as sticks. SERCA Ca2+ binding site I and II are indicated. Figure: Sara Basse Hansen.

Ion and lipid transporters specialize for their niche

Cell viability require that a variety of functions at the cell membrane are maintained properly. P-type ATPases translocate substrates across the membrane, and they have evolved into different types taking care of specific substrates within a diverse range. Now, key structural aspects have been described on how two different types of P-type…

Bigger and better RNA scaffolds for organising proteins

Researchers from iNANO (Aarhus University) and Caltech have developed a method to build much larger, though still nanosize, RNA scaffolds than previously thought possible using RNA origami. The method is based on new software that has been made available online so other researchers can use it to develop biosensors, nanorobots and medicine –…
