    Eine Hemmung der KDM6-Enzyme führt dazu, dass embyronenähnliche Zellgebilde absterben (oben rechts). Ein Comet Assay (unten) zeigt zudem, dass die Enzymhemmung zur Anhäufung von DNA-Schäden führt: Je größer der „Schweif“ um eine Zelle ist, umso

    In many tumours specific enzymes involved in regulating gene activity are heavily mutated. What effect could that have? Cell researchers from the University of Würzburg have looked into this question.

    The carnivorous Venus flytrap carefully plans its meals: It can count how often it is touched by an insect to calculate the digestive effort. This discovery has been made by plant scientists of the University of Würzburg.

    Mit einer an der Universität Würzburg entwickelten neuen Methode können Forscher weit detaillierter als bisher nachvollziehen, was bei Infektionen in Krankheitserregern und den von ihnen befallenen Zellen vor sich geht. Das Foto zeigt menschliche Zelle

    A new approach pioneered by researchers at the University of Würzburg may prove to be a big step forward in the study of the molecular basis of infectious diseases. For the first time, the scientists have shown in detail which genes are activated or repressed in both the pathogen and in the host cell during an infection. The results are published in the journal Nature.

    Fighting haemophilia A, a bleeding disorder, with the body's own cells: That is the goal of a new international research consortium led by scientists from Würzburg. The EU funds the project with around €5.5 million.
