...d urinary tract inflammations. Combating certain bonds
Bouckaert and De Greve have investigated the way in which the E. coli bacteria attach themselves. This attachment takes place by means of a reaction between the protein 'Adhesine FimH' on the tips of the pili and special receptors on the wall of the...
Four Max Planck Partner Groups starting in India

and physical properties of new materials," which will be headed by Dr. Tansuri Saha-Dasgupta at the renowned S.N. Bose National Center for Basic Research in Kolkata. From 1997 to 1999, Dr. Saha-Dasgupta was a fellowship holder under the aegis of Dr. ...
Femtosecond laser technique opens new opportunities for research on neural regeneration

Protein energy profiles offer clues about amyloids
...stance, are proteins that make or disrupt chemical bonds
in other molecules -- individual atoms of a protein must be aligned just so if they are to function properly. Consequently, there is a direct relationship between a protein's shape and its function. The study of amyloids is complicated by the fact th...
