Funktionalisierung von Methan in anaeroben Mikroorganismen

Mehr als nur ein Weg: Einige strikt anaerobe Bakterien können auf Methan und Nitrit unter Bildung von CO2 und N2 wachsen. Kürzlich publizierte Versuche sprechen für die Beteiligung einer NO‐Dismutase und einer partikulären Methan‐Monooxygenase (pMMO) an der Umsetzung. Beide Enzyme fehlen in Mikroorganismen, die die Oxidation von Methan mit Sulfat katalysieren. Es gibt also mindestens zwei Wege, anaerob Methan als Energiequelle zu verwenden.

    Algae for your fuel tank

    The available amount of fossil fuels is limited and their combustion in vehicle motors increases atmospheric carbon dioxide levels. The generation of fuels from biomass as an alternative is on the rise. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Johannes A. Lercher and his team at the Technische Uni ... more

    Progress toward artificial tissue?

    For modern implants and the growth of artificial tissue and organs, it is important to generate materials with characteristics that closely emulate nature. However, the tissue in our bodies has a combination of traits that are very hard to recreate in synthetic materials: It is both soft an ... more

    Biomass as a source of raw materials

    For the protection of the environment, and because of the limited amount of fossil fuels available, renewable resources, such as specially cultivated plants, wood scraps, and other plant waste, are becoming the focus of considerable attention. Processes such as pyrolysis or liquefaction all ... more

    Glycosphingolipids: synthesis and functions

    Abstract Glycosphingolipids (GSLs) are a heterogeneous group of membrane lipids that are formed by a ceramide backbone covalently linked to a glycan moiety. Hundreds of different glycans can be linked to tens of different ceramide molecules, giving rise to an astonishing variety of stru ... more

    Naproxen intercalates and causes photocleavage of DNA through ROS generation

    Abstract Naproxen is an important non steroidal anti‐inflammatory drug (NSAIDs) capable of many pharmacological and biological properties. In this study, we have attempted to ascertain the mode of action and the mechanism of binding of naproxen with DNA. We have also demonstrated that n ... more

    De novo design of functional proteins: Towards artificial hydrogenases

    Abstract Over the last 25 years, de novo design has proven to be a valid approach to generate novel, well‐folded proteins, and most recently, functional proteins. In response to societal needs, this approach is been used increasingly to design functional proteins developed with an eye t ... more

    Bioengineers Succeed in Producing Plastic Without the use of Fossil Fuels

    A team of pioneering South Korean scientists have succeeded in producing the polymers used for everyday plastics through bioengineering, rather than through the use of fossil fuel based chemicals. This groundbreaking research, which may now allow for the production of environmentally consci ... more

    New look for antiques

    In the past, restoration of paintings and other old artwork often involved application of acrylic resins to consolidate and protect them. One of the most important tasks for modern restorers is thus to remove these layers, because it turns out that acrylic resins not only drastically change ... more

    Is trash the solution to tackling climate change?

    Converting the trash that fills the world's landfills into biofuel may be the answer to both the growing energy crisis and to tackling carbon emissions, claim scientists in Singapore and Switzerland. New research published in Global Change Biology: Bioenergy, reveals how replacing gasoline ... more
