Lewis bases are a fundamental class of compounds that are of utmost importance in almost any chemical transformation. According to the HSAB concept, they determine important properties such as the stability or solubility of compounds or the selectivity of reactions. Yet, Lewis bases are used far beyond simple acid-base pairs. In coordination chemistry they act as efficient σ-donor ligands, which c ...

Exciting findings from animal electrophysiological research in the last years suggest that an increased rate of body movements results in an enhanced response of neurons within the visual system despite the absence of visual changes. It is unclear why such modulation occurs in areas which process visual input. In humans, little is known about the influence of body movements on sensory brain areas ...

Signaling Cascades in Metabolic Diseases (SiCMetabol)

Start date: Jun 1, 2016, End date: May 31, 2021,

Over 380 million people suffer from diabetes worldwide, with majority of cases being attributed to type 2 diabetes (T2D). Obesity is a major risk factor predisposing to the development of this disease. T2D is characterized by peripheral insulin resistance in combination with relative insulin deficiency that results in hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia. Liver and adipose tissue are central for regul ...

Boron-boron multiple bonding (multiBB)

Start date: May 1, 2016, End date: Apr 30, 2021,

Multiple bonding between atoms is immensely important to chemistry, biology, physics and their associated industries; multiple bonds are both ubiquitous in everyday products and extremely useful functionalities for effecting chemical transformations. While very common with the elements carbon, nitrogen and oxygen, multiple bonding is in comparison extremely rare with other elements. Multiple bondi ...

There is an intense interest in the function of human Myc proteins that stems from their pervasive role in the genesis of human tumors. A large body of evidence has established that expression levels of one of three closely related Myc proteins are enhanced in the majority of all human tumors and that multiple tumor entities depend on elevated Myc function, arguing that targeting Myc will have sig ...

G-quadruplex DNA Structures and Genome Stability (G4DSB)

Start date: Jul 1, 2015, End date: Jun 30, 2020,

Secondary structures such as G-quadruplexes (G4s) can form within DNA or RNA. They pose a dramatic risk for genome stability, because due to their stability they can block DNA replication and this could lead to DNA breaks. In certain cancer cells mutations/deletions are observed at G4s, if a helicase that is important for G4 unwinding is mutated. Nevertheless, G4s are also discussed to be function ...
