EMBO Reports selects a study by researchers at IRB Barcelona as the highlighted article of the week because of the relevance of autophagy in health.
The multiple conformations of G-protein offer new possibilities to develop specific drugs.
Scientists will use it to analyse the stress responses used by cells to solve genomic errors, and also to identify targets of therapeutic interest.
Researchers at IRB Barcelona describe a new mechanism that allows the segregation of nuclear and mitochondrial genetic codes in Trypanosoma.
The study provides further insight into how cells divide to form the wing during the embryonic development of the fly Drosophila.
Researchers at IRB Barcelona publish a review article in Physiological Reviews about the changes in the shape and movements of mitochondria, and the human diseases associated with defects in these processes. This review establishes a new interface between cell biology and pathology.
An IRB Barcelona research team discovers the mechanism that favours the correct separation of germ cells –future ovules and sperm-, from the rest of the cells during embryonic development.
“Bisthiazol” is funded by the Agency for Assessing and Marketing Research Results, run by the University of Barcelona (UB), and the Santander Bank.
The compound stimulates the growth of damaged axons in mouse neurons in vitro.
Researchers at IBEC, IRB Barcelona and the UB identify the strategy used by enterobacteria to acquire resistance and pathogenicity.
