3D structure reveals protein’s Swiss-army knife strategy

The molecular machine that makes essential components of ribosomes – the cell’s protein factories – is like a Swiss-army knife, researchers at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany, and the Centro de Investigaciones Biológicas in Madrid, Spain, have found.



Infectious disease molecular diagnostic portfolio expanded with the launch of Iam Toxo

The molecular division of DiaSorin, has further strengthened its infectious disease diagnostic portfolio supporting the health and wellbeing of immunocompromised patients with the launch of the Iam Toxo assay for the detection of Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii).



A protein safeguards against cataracts

The refractive power of the human eye lens relies on a densely packed mixture of proteins. Special protective proteins ensure that these proteins do not clump together as time passes.



IBM and Swiss Hospital test new tool for diagnosing cancer
