Discovery of the biophysical molecular mechanism of thermal adaptation in bacteria

    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

    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

    MicroRNA: mechanism that allows plants to be larger and healthier

    A group of researchers from IBR are studying how these small molecules could improve plant characteristics. The aim of this research, led by Javier Palatnik, an independent researcher of CONICET at the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology of Rosario (CONICET – UNR) is to increase the performance of the field and produce bigger plants

    Discovery of a new treatment for fertilization

    The finding is key to understanding the molecular mechanisms that are developed for a sperm to fertilize an egg. The new study may mark a radical change in the techniques of in vitro fertilization Darío Krapf , assistant researcher of CONICET , belongs to the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology of Rosario (IBR) ,

Telma Scarpeci , laboratory research ,

    About frogs, mice and humans

    Under the direction of Dr. Silvia Arranz, Platform IBR Aquatic Biotechnology focuses primarily on developing technologies for the cultivation and conservation of fish. One of the lines of research of the laboratory is playing , where Dr. Darío Krapf worked , and studied in order to elucidate the molecular mechanisms acting during the process by

    Citrus biotechnology

    The canker is a disease caused by infection with the bacterium Xanthomonas axonopodis pv . citri , which affects citrus plants and is one of the main phytosanitary problems that today are Argentine growers . In the laboratory, ” Plants- Microorganisms Interactions ” led by Dr. Jorgelina Ottado , IBR , the interaction of these

    Tuberculosis. A prevailing disease

    According to the World Health Organization , TB is the second cause of death after AIDS , caused by an infectious agent, and about a third of the world’s population is infected with the bacillus causes it, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, although only part develop the disease . In Rosario , CONICET researchers and scholars try to

    HPV before vaccination and new findings

    A research group of the IBR conducted a multicenter study to determine the prevalence of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV ) in women who went to hospitals in the south of the Province of Santa Fe and Buenos Aires. This study sets the stage on circulating virus types in adult women who received the bivalent vaccine
