Filamentous Gram-positive bacterium for long-distance electron

Increasing evidence has demonstrated how the microbial world is electrically connected. Electrical wire networks on the micrometer to centimeter scale have been found in many microorganisms and in diverse environments, where they are believed to play important roles in biogeochemical processes, pollutant degradation and bioenergy recovery. iNANO…

Flavor recognition technology on its way to the market. Is your startup company next?

How do we know, if our food tastes good, or if it has already gone bad? The startup BettaSensing, co-founded by iNANO researcher Noga Gal, has created an innovative flavor recognition technology for the food industry. Last year, the company took part in the EIT Food entrepreneurship program Seedbed, which in Denmark is based at the Department of…

Developing biological nano-implants to block epileptic seizures

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological diseases and seizures can be debilitating. Unfortunately, treatments to prevent these seizures are lacking. Jørgen Kjems from iNANO and the Department of Molecular Biology at Aarhus University and the AU spinout company, OMIICS, are partners in a new consortium, PRIME, that will seek to develop…

Unraveling the three-dimensional structure of the glycine transporter, researchers have now come a big step closer to understanding the regulation of glycine in the brain. These result open up opportunities to find effective drugs that inhibit GlyT1 function, with major implications for the treatment of schizophrenia and other mental disorders.

Structure determination of the glycine transporter GlyT1 opens new avenues in development of psychiatric drugs

Glycine can stimulate or inhibit neurons in the brain, thereby controlling complex functions. Unraveling the three-dimensional structure of the glycine transporter, researchers have now come a big step closer to understanding the regulation of glycine in the brain. These results, which have been published in Nature, open up opportunities to find…
