Control of protein degradation in biology and medicine

Protein aggregation in cells is a symptom of many diseases. Ian Max Møller, Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, will try to solve this problem during the next three years with a grant amounting to more than DKK 6.4 million from the Danish Council for Independent Research | Technology and Production Sciences.

A novel strategy to sort functional from non-functional RNA

The human genome is promiscuously transcribed yielding RNA from >75% of its DNA. It is presently intensely debated how much of this material is functional. Danish researchers have devised a method to help address this problem.

The strange plant Welwitschia mirabilis, which grows in the deserts of Namibia, is a veritable Methuselah with leaves that are 2-3 meters long. Now, researchers from Aarhus University will use the long-lived plant as a model for aging in humans. Photo: Janne Hansen.

Unlocking the secrets of Methuselah?

Some organisms can live for thousands of years, while we humans may achieve at the most 100-120 years. Researchers are delving into the cells of plants and humans to explore what it is that makes the difference.
