Sweet salvation: how a sugar cane pathogen is gearing up a new era of antibiotic discovery

Sweet salvation: how a sugar cane pathogen is gearing up a new era of antibiotic discovery

23.01.2023
An international group of researchers, including Prof. Jonathan Heddle’s team from the JU Małopolska Centre of Biotechnology made a ground-breaking discovery concerning the work of albicidin – a substance which may become the basis of most effective antibiotics against antibiotic resistant bacteria. The paper, entitled ‘Molecular mechanism of topoisomerase poisoning by a potent peptide antibiotic’ has been published in Nature Catalysis journal.

Researchers establish what factors influence the size of nestlings' brains

Researchers establish what factors influence the size of nestlings' brains

18.01.2023
An international study involving Dr hab. Szymon Drobniak from the JU Faculty of Biology has shown that parental provisioning has an impact on hatchlings’ brain size, even before they begin to interact with others. These findings are very surprising, as social factors have so far been considered to be the main contributing factor in this regard.

Ground-breaking studies into the structure of the Elongator complex

12.01.2023
The latest paper by scientists from the Małopolska Centre of Biotechnology of the Jagiellonian University (JU MCB) describes the first high resolution cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) structure of Elongator, which sheds light on the role of the Elp456 subcomplex. The study was published this week in Nucleic Acids Research as a Breakthrough Article.
