German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has awarded the 26th German Future Prize to researchers from the Jena-based company Carl Zeiss Microscopy: Thomas Kalkbrenner, Jörg Siebenmorgen and Ralf Wolleschensky (10/26-22). The award winners have developed a novel microscope for the gentle 3-D imaging of living cells, which will enable further intensive research into the fundamentals of life. Fantastic news for the bioimaging research area and our speaker Prof. Markus Sauer, who was involved in the development of this award-winning ZEISS Lattice Lightsheet Microscopy technique.

Image: Structure of UBA6

Researchers at the Rudolf Virchow Center of the University of Würzburg have unveiled the crystal structures of UBA6 in complex with either ATP or the ubiquitin-like protein FAT10. These results provide the foundation to study the individual roles of UBA6 towards the attachment of either ubiquitin or FAT10 to target proteins and the downstream cellular pathways with possible implications for the etiology of certain tumors. This study was published in the journal Nature Communications.

Scientists from the University of Würzburg and the University of Strasbourg identified a new important molecular region in an essential human DNA repair complex, consisting of the proteins XPD and MAT1. This complex forms a central unit in the nucleotide excision DNA repair mechanism (NER) and thus protects our genetic information. The findings were published in the journal Nature Communications and could provide new starting points for cancer therapy.
