Kleines Molekül mit hohem Lichtschutzfaktor

Ein Freiburger Forschungsteam hat gezeigt, wie Cyanobakterien sich an Schwankungen in der Lichtintensität anpassen Cyanobakterien sind Organismen, die Fotosynthese betreiben und ihre Energie mithilfe von Licht gewinnen. Dabei produzieren sie Sauerstoff. Zu viel Sonnenstrahlung kann die empfindlichen Fotosynthesesysteme in den … Continue reading

To Cap or Not to Cap: Scientists Find New RNA Phenomenon That Challenges Dogma

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Some RNA molecules spend time in a restful state akin to hibernation rather than automatically carrying out their established job of delivering protein-building instructions in cells, new research suggests. And instead of being a fluke or a … Continue reading
