The Penicillin-Binding Proteins (PBPs) are transpeptidases that catalyze crosslinking in the bacterial cell wall and the molecular targets of the ß-lactam antibiotics

Iodine concentration in ice remained constant during the pre-ozone hole period (1800-1974) but has continuously declined since the onset of the ozone hole era (~1975), closely tracking the total ozone evolution over Antarctic

CBE-IQFR researcher work in an international collaborative project to watch in real time the diffusion of ligands into enzyme crystals using the state-of-the-art XFEL technology. The article has been published in IUCrJ.

Cold, Salinity and abiotic stresses cause crop productivity loss at worldwide scale. Many of the physiological changes motivated by the plant adaptation to these stresses unbalance lipid homeostasis at the plasma membrane

Scientists from the IQFR and the University of Oxford published in Nature how to make icosahedral quasicrystals using particles with directional bonding

The first structure of the junction between two types of DNA structures, the i-motif and the double helix, has been published

Next Friday 18th of June we shall celebrate the 7th edition of the IQFR Young Researchers' Symposium.

Cells have two purine pathways that synthesize adenine and guanine ribonucleotides from phosphoribose via inosylate. A chemical hybrid between adenine and guanine, 2-aminoadenine (Z), replaces adenine in viral DNAs.
