Scientists at IQFR and the University of Nebraska publish a theoretical paper in the journal JACS with the proposal of a new mechanistic framework for the formation and growth of iodine aerosols in the atmosphere.

Scientists from the Rocasolano Institute of Physical Chemistry and McGill University in Montreal have just published a review on this fascinanting DNA structure in Nucleic Acids Research

A multidisciplinar study published in J. Med. Chem. by IQFR researchers has revealed key structural insights for the regulation of the NCS-1/Ric8a protein/protein interaction with small molecules. This has led to the discovery of a drug-like compound with promissing prospect for fragile X syndrome pharmacotherapy.

A collaborative study published in Nucleic Acids Research by members of IQFR and the Área de Genética-Universidad de Murcia (Unidad Asociada al IQFR) describes a new mechanism for regulated expression of a CRISPR-Cas system in the soil bacterium Myxococcus xanthus

The “chameleonic” peptide LytA239-252 forms a β-hairpin in aqueous solution which is converted into an α-helix in the presence of micelles. We have found that the balance of hydrophobicity <H> and amphipathicity <μH> contributes to helix stability.
