JU researchers contribute to solving another mystery of bacteria

20.05.2020
An international research team including scientists from the Jagiellonian University has published the results of a ground-breaking study on RagAB protein complex, which allows the transport of peptides inside the cells of Porphyromonas gingivalis bacteria, the main factor responsible for the development of periodontal disease. This is the first such system of peptide transport in Gram-negative bacteria to have been described so far. The discovery can lead to the development of medications hindering the growth of these pathogens.

Dropping like flies

18.05.2020
About 66 million years ago, the age of dinosaurs came to an end when a massive asteroid hit the Earth. An enormous shockwave and raging wildfires caused thick clouds of smoke and dust to obscure the sun, changing the global climate and killing off around three quarters of all existing life. We are aware of at least several comparable or possibly even greater mass extinction events that happened in the history of our planet. Unfortunately, it seems that we’re about to experience another one. Dr Justyna Kierat and Dr Piotr Łukasik from the JU Faculty of Biology have taken a closer look at the chilling issue of mass animal die offs.
