A nice way to start the new year! Our paper reporting on time-resolved insights into structure and function of the 10-23 DNAzyme is published in the first issue of Nature 2022. Thanks to the Span, Gohlke, and Schiemann labs as well as to Bruker for the great collaborations! See publications for more infos and links to the paper.
The group now officially transitioned from the Emmy Noether to the Heisenberg Program of the DFG!
Two more publications: Rosenbach et al. characterizes metal-ion interactions of the 10-23 DNAzyme and Dubey et al. reports a new strategy that finally enables methyl labeling in eucaryotic and cell-free expression systems. Thanks to the Span, Gelev and Arthanari groups for the nice collaborations! See publications for more infos and links to the papers.
...and this completes the cover picture hattrick! Very glad and proud to contribute the third Angewandte cover article!
Congratulations to Dr. Jan Borggräfe for successfully defending his PhD thesis and beeing awarded summa cum laude!
Congratulations to Dr. Shantha Elter for successfully defending her PhD thesis!
Double feature: Roesner et al. characterizes the clustering of alpha synuclein with prion proteins and Rosenbach et al. summmerizes the features of the 10-23 DNAzyme. Thanks to the Hoyer and Span group for having us on board! See publications for more infos and links to the papers.
Congratulations to Dr. Marcel Falke for successfully defending his PhD thesis!
Another double feature: Viegas et al. characterizes the features of a key domain in chaperone function and Rosenbach et al. expands the strucutral biology toolbox. Thanks to the Jaeger, Gohlke, Seidel as well as the Span groups, respectively, for these nice collaborations. See publications for more infos and links to the papers.
Dec 2019 /Jan 2020:
2x Paper alert: Porta et al. investigates a strategy to overcome lantibiotic resistance and Viegas et al. characterizes a new network of intracellular EGFR interactions and is featured on the cover of Structure!
