Researchers define together with industry the intracellular recycling pathway of human serum albumin

Collaborative work between the NanoPharmaceutical Lab at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO), Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics and the Novozymes owned company Albumedix have uncovered a neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn)-dependent endosomal cellular sorting pathway. This has great importance in describing fundamental mechanisms…

New knowledge about the dynamics of proteins can shape the future in drug development

New research provides mechanistic insight into how protein dynamics control the activity of a group of enzymes called serine proteases. As serine proteases play pivotal roles in blood coagulation, the innate immune system and tissue remodeling, the results may be important for the development of new drugs for the treatment of various diseases.

New insight into a central biological dogma on ion transport

New research results from Aarhus University and New York University show how active transport of potassium can be achieved by a membrane protein complex that has roots in both ion pump and ion channel super-families. The results, which have just been published in Nature, shed new light on what define channels and pumps.
