Cross-talk between signaling cascades
Cross-talk between signaling cascades
Signaling cascades communicate and integrate extracellular signaling cues spatially and temporally via formation of defined protein-protein interactions. Scientists from the Institute of Biochemistry in Innsbruck discovered a unique mechanism which is based on binary protein-protein interactions and which explains cross talk between critically regulated signaling cascades.

Chemistry: Success Through Cooperation
Chemistry: Success Through Cooperation
Innsbruck scientists tested a new chemical modification of RNA molecules successfully for the first time. The results of the close cooperation of two research groups of the Centre for Molecular Biosciences (CMBI) have been published in the journal ACS Chemical Biology and one of their photos has been used as the cover picture of the current issue.

Discovery of an evolutionary conserved function of protein kinase A
Discovery of an evolutionary conserved function of protein kinase A
Extracellular cues are recognized by G-protein-coupled receptors which transmit the signal via trimeric G proteins to their cellular effectors. Dr. Eduard Stefan from the Institute of Biochemistry showed in cooperation with international research teams a novel and conserved mechanism how cells adapt to environmental changes.

Saharan dust in alpine lakes
Saharan dust in alpine lakes
Remote lakes are subject to the deposition of atmospheric pollutants, mineral dust, and organic matter. In a recent study published in Nature , an international group of limnologists including Prof. Ruben Sommaruga from the Institute of Ecology at the University of Innsbruck have uncovered the effect of dust on the pool of dissolved organic matter of remote alpine lakes.

Single-molecule switching in action
Single-molecule switching in action
Chemists from Innsbruck and New York managed to monitor single-molecule switching in action. In an article in "Nature Chemical Biology" they report their findings: The secret of bacterial riboswitches lies in their dynamics. These findings are also relevant in antibiotics research.
