Scientists fold RNA origami from a single strand

RNA origami is a new method for organizing molecules on the nanoscale. Using just a single strand of RNA, many complicated shapes can be fabricated by this technique. Unlike existing methods for folding DNA molecules, RNA origamis are produced by enzymes and they simultaneously fold into pre-designed shapes. These features may allow designer RNA…

Don’t zinc - do!

Aarhus University’s PUMPkin Centre – a Centre of Excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation – has just succeeded in ‘taking’ the first photos of the mechanism that transports zinc out of the cells of organisms such as bacteria and plants. The study has just been published in Nature.

Nitrogen compounds control disease resistance in cereals

Nitrogen compounds play an important role in the plant’s fight against fungal diseases. Researchers are now seeking a better understanding of these mechanisms. This may present plant breeders with some new genetic tools for their work.
