[1 Sep 2016] Plants, bacteria and fungi react to light with light-sensitive proteins. Scientists from the University of Gothenburg and their Finnish colleagues from University of Jyväskylä have now determined the inner workings of one of these proteins. The results have been published in the most recent issue of Science Advances.
[7 Jun 2016] New research from the University of Gothenburg advances our knowledge of how cells age and may have important implications for our understanding diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
[7 Jun 2016] New research at the University of Gothenburg shows that arsenic and cadmium, which are poisonous to humans, contribute to the clumping together of proteins in cells and the forming of aggregates, which are linked to diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. ¿But we have also succeeded in identifying a defence mechanism that prevents arsenic from being absorbed by cells,¿ said Therese Jacobson, doctoral student at the Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology.
