Advanced Practical Course on In-Cell NMR & Symposium on Protein Post-translational modifications by NMR

19-23 November, 2018 Rosario, Argentina “Proteins sample a wide variety of environments in vivo. Depending on its sub-cellular localization they are exposed to different degrees of macromolecular crowding, varied pH values and/or experience transient interactions with other cellular components such as metabolites, lipidic membranes, nucleic acids and proteins. In addition they can be post-translationally modified […]

Discovery of the biophysical molecular mechanism of thermal adaptation in bacteria

Discovery of the biophysical molecular mechanism of thermal adaptation in bacteria

21 March, 2014

IBR researchers explain how a thermo sensor protein converts the ambient temperature in an intracellular signal and its projection in health and biotechnology . What is the modus operandi of protein thermo sensor ? How do you convert a physical signal as the temperature in a chemical signal ? Scientists tried to answer these questions, […]

Biological sensors of toxic metals

Biological sensors of toxic metals

4 December, 2013

A group of the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology of Rosario (IBR- CONICET- UNR) led by Dr. Fernando Soncini, developed biosensors that can detect toxic heavy metals in drinking water and industrial effluents, technology that was created from a modified bacteria that turn green when they encounter these metals. Dr. Susana Checa, associate laboratory […]
