The i-motif is four-stranded DNA structure stabilized by hemiprotonated cytosine base pairs (C:C+). Although this is a very attractive structural motif for the development of devices at a nanometric scale, the requirement of acidic pH for its formation makes the i-motif occurrence in vivo controversial.

Statistics from structural genomics initiatives reveal that around 50-55% of the expressed, non-membrane proteins cannot be purified and therefore structurally characterized due to solubility problems

Processes catalyzed by enzymes offer numerous advantages over chemical methods although in many occasions the stability of the biocatalysts becomes a serious concern. 

In collaboration with BRUKER Española S.A., the SEBBM has awarded Dr. Antonio Chaves-Sanjuán with the “José Tormo” Prize 

Dr. M.J. Sánchez-Barrena, contracted researcher at Institute “Rocasolano”, has been awarded with a very competitive “Leonardo” fellowship from the BBVA Foundation.

Living organisms sense and respond to light, a crucial environmental factor, using photoreceptors, which rely on bound chromophores such as retinal, flavins, or linear tetrapyrroles for light sensing.

The N-acetylglucosaminidase NagZ of Pseudomonas aeruginosa catalyzes the first cytoplasmic step in recycling of muropeptides, cell-wall-derived natural products.

Coincident with the anniversary of the demise of our colleague Noé García Almarza, Soft Matter has published one of his last research studies that has also been highlighted in the Inside Front Cover of the aforementioned journal.
