A new self-assembly process designed at CiQUS allows the recognition of specific DNA sequences

Tags:

«Angewandte Chemie» publishes a rare event: a metal ion, a small protein fragment and an organic molecule that reversibly self-assemble in the presence of specific DNA sequences. Transcription Factors (TFs) are specialized proteins that regulate gene expression by binding to specific DNA regulatory sequences, and thereby promote or inhibit the timely biosynthesis of particular proteins.

  • Comments Off on Researchers demonstrate the effectiveness of a new method of making vaccines developed at CiQUS, which avoids the use of inactivated virus
  • CiQUS, Latest news, Research Centers Network
Tags:

The best vaccines available are based on “inactivated virus”, i.e. live viruses chemically or physically treated to eliminate their infectivity. This method involves a number of important biological hazards, that require relevant safety measures. Therefore, there are many attempts to replace this kind of vaccines with lower risk options, like “subunit vaccines”, which only present […]
