Discovery of novel orphan riboswitch ligands (RiboDisc)

Start date: Apr 1, 2016, End date: Mar 31, 2021,

Riboswitches are mRNA-based gene-regulatory elements triggered by direct interactions with small molecular ligands. They are exciting targets for novel antibiotic strategies. Many putative riboswitches have been identified using bioinformatics. However, ligand identification is getting more complicated since many motifs are not expected to be involved in simple feedback regulation mechanisms. For ...

Artificial Natural Products System Synthesis (ANaPSyS)

Start date: Apr 1, 2016, End date: Mar 31, 2021,

"Traditionally, natural products are classified into "natural product families". Within a family all congeners display specific structure elements, owing to their common biosynthetic pathway. This suggests a bio-inspired or "collective synthesis", as has been devised by D: W. MacMillan. However, a biosynthetic pathway is confined to these structure elements, thus limiting synthesis with regard to ...

A diverse variety of medical or lifestyle conditions lead to a progressive loss of muscle force by functionally impairing myofibril contractility and causing ultimately myofibril loss. Major underlying risk factors of chronic muscle force loss are ageing, inactive lifestyles, and unbalanced nutrition. Together, these factors are predicted to lead to an endemic incidence of muscle weakness both in ...

Group work has become increasingly important for many tasks and services in organisations, and organisations thus depend on successful team function. The entire group’s performance may depend on the lowest performer (weakest link), but groups’ reactions to low performers are not well understood. We suggest that goal attributions are a neglected but potentially powerful factor: Did the low performe ...

Darwin suggested that natural selection not only leads to adaptation but also promotes the origin of species. Ecological speciation acts through divergent natural selection and one of the most informative circumstances in which one can investigate how adaptive traits and how species evolve – and what the genetic basis of species differences and adaptations are - are repeated adaptive radiations th ...
