¿Estamos cerca del momento en que las máquinas lo harán todo mejor que nosotros? El viernes 3 de marzo contamos con Ramón López de Mántaras para discutir sobre el presente y futuro de la Inteligencia Artificial.

The sequence TC5 (TCCCCC) adopts a tetrameric i-motif structure upon the association of four molecules at acidic pH. Researchers from the IQFR-CSIC and McGill have found that T(araF-C)5 forms an alternative conformation.

The protein Tau acts to stabilize microtubules but forma aberrant tangles in Alzheimer’s disease. This process appears to start from an expanded monomeric conformation.

Lectins from fungal fruiting bodies face the biologically relevant challenge of discriminating self- from non-self carbohydrate structures, therefore providing the basis for an innate defense system.

Certain sequences of our genome can adopt an unusual structure, known as i-DNA, which is able to change its structure to adapt to the environmental pH.

“Los pueblos que se limitan a ser meros beneficiaros de la Ciencia que elaboran otros, sin contribuir a su gestación, se hallan expuestos a depender enteramente de ellos”.

Cyclosporin (CsA) has antiparasite activity against the human pathogen Toxoplasma gondii. We characterized the functional and structural properties of two cyclophilins from T. gondii, TgCyp23 and TgCyp18.4.
