Danish researchers have determined the three-dimensional structure of the proteolytic enzyme PAPP-A. The results may allow us to better understand the basic biology that regulates linear growth of vertebrates. The same regulatory mechanisms are also involved in several age-related diseases, and thus, the research is an important step towards the development of novel types of drugs.
Assistant Professor Alonso Rosas-Hernández is the first researcher to receive a Junior Group Leader grant from the Novo Nordisk Foundation CO₂ Research Center (CORC), which is a four-year grant awarded for research that supplements ongoing research in the center. The project focuses on methane - another very potent greenhouse gas that we need to curb - and aims to develop novel hybrid catalysts to promote the electroconversion of methane to methanol to counteract methane accumulation in the atmosphere.
Good news for the many people who suffer from diabetes, as researchers from Novo Nordisk A/S, the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, and Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) at Aarhus University have taken some important steps together to understand and thus improve the effect of insulin in the body.
