The scientists were surprised by what they have seen in the video showing this hereditary material.
Researchers have created the world's first 3-D image of a protein that spreads cancer. The structural image of the enzyme will enable researchers to better under and develop potential anticancer drugs and treatments.
Scientists have identified a malfunctioning enzyme as a possible reason that binge drinking increases the odds of alcoholism.
Aminoglycosides are a class of antibiotics that doctors prescribe for serious or life-threatening infections. Biochemistry researchers found a mobile gene that is resistant to this class of antibiotics, which could put people at an unwanted risk.
For the first time, researchers from ETH Zurich have succeeded in analysing the interplay between enzymes and their cofactors at an unprecedented resolution, thereby providing fresh insights into how one of the most common cofactors in nature works.
In a recently published Nature paper, ETH scientists presented the first artificial enzyme that readily competes with its natural counterparts in terms of catalytic throughput.
