Researchers in Barcelona discover more potential candidates on the route to tailored, photo-switchable therapies by disproving design limitation
Researchers at IRB Barcelona and IBEC achieve photo-switchable molecules to control protein-protein interactions in a remote and non-invasive manner.
These tools will serve as a prototype to develop photo-switchable drugs, whose effects would be limited to a given region and time, thus reducing the side effects on other regions.
The article, cover and “Very Important Paper” of Angewandte Chemie, is a highlighted result of the European project “OpticalBullet”, funded by the European Research Council (ERC) and in which the two institutes participate.
