Streptococcus suis is one of the most important pathogens in the porcine industry and an emerging zoonotic agent that infects humans, causing high fatality rates.

Enzybiotics are a novel class of antibacterials, based on the peptidoglycan lysins, which kill rapidly and specifically the bacteria, preventing the appearance of crossed resistances with other pathogens and the microbiota degradation.

Pathogens try to escape from our immune system by mutating their proteins. To prevent the bacterium from infecting the cells with a single mutation, the NAIP5 protein of the inflammosome is capable of detecting bacterial flagellin at several sites.

El día 11 de febrero ha sido elegido como el “Día Internacional de la Mujer y la Niña en la Ciencia” por la ONU. El objetivo es dar a conocer el papel de las mujeres en ciencia y a la vez conseguir que la investigación científica sea una de las aspiraciones de futuro en nuestros menores independientemente de su género. En nuestro país se organizan múltiples actividades en relación con esta celebración. Desde el IQFR apoyamos esta iniciativa participando activamente mediante talleres, charlas y debates por parte de nuestras investigadoras.

The notion that strong laser light can intervene and modify the dynamical processes of matter has been demonstrated and exploited both in gas and condensed phases.

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.
