About a third of bacterial proteins are either transported across or integrated into the cell membranes, so that they can perform functions that are vital for bacterial survival in specific environmental niches. Directional transport of selected proteins often relies on large membrane-embedded biomolecular assemblies. For example, the dual membrane-spanning Type 3 Secretion System (T3SS) enables ...

In order to achieve true economic feasibility of future biorefineries, it should be ensured that maximum value is derived from all individual components of lignocellulose. Especially the catalytic conversion of the lignin component to well defined aromatic compounds has proven challenging. Furthermore, the downstream processing of the platform chemicals obtained from cellulose(s) and lignin still ...

Abstract : The life of any organism depends on the ability of cells to accurately recognize and eliminate harmful microbes. In order to detect the immense repertoire of pathogenic entities, the innate immune system of mammals has evolved a range of distinct sensing strategies. One major mechanism is based on the recognition of microbial DNA ... Read more about "Innate DNA sensing through the cGAS-STING system - Blurring the boundary between PAMP and DAMP"

The outstanding Catalan philosopher and theologian Ramon Llull (c.1232–1316) encourages us to reread the late Middle Ages. Llull, not only theoretically and linguistically invented a new method of knowledge acquisition, like an engineer, he also mechanized it, and translated it into a machine. The EPFL instance is curated by: Prof. Dr. Amador Vega, (Universitat Pompeu ... Read more about "Thinking Machines. Ramon Llull and the ars combinatoria"
