Pathogenic bacteria inhibit host cell secretion to manipulate host immunity
Agriculture, Biosciences, Cells, effectors, host susceptibility, Nature, pathogen, Proteins, virulence

In nature, there is a constant evolutionary battle between microbes and their hosts, during which, many bacteria secrete specific proteins into the host’s cells, aiming to alter its physiology, while increasing pestiferous activity.

Clock gene mutation found to contribute to the development of autism
Autism, Biosciences, Health, Neurobiology, Publication

A team of scientists from the University of Minnesota Medical School, University of Texas Health San Antonio, and the Biomedical Research Institute of FORTH, found that the disruption of a circadian clock gene may be involved in the development of autism spectrum disorder.

Protein structural dynamics underlie their evolution and adaptability over the centuries
Biology & Biotechnology, Biosciences, Cells, Proteins, Publication

How does nature utilize the common repertoire of folds in proteins to differentiate their specificity, and ultimately their function? This long-standing and fundamental question was addressed in a study conducted at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of the Foundation for Research & Technology-Hellas (FORTH-IMBB).

IMBB researchers reveal that DNA damage in tissue-infiltrating macrophages triggers an exosome-based metabolic reprogramming leading to chronic inflammation.
Aging, Biology & Biotechnology, Cells, DNA, Health, Publication

Research carried out at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) of FORTH, provides evidence that persistent DNA damage triggers an exosome-based, metabolic reprogramming that leads to chronic inflammation and tissue pathology in DNA repair-deficient progeroid syndromes and likely also during aging.

20.10.2021
"Generation of optical Schrödinger “cat” states in intense laser-matter interactions" was published in Nature Physics.
Laser, Publication

In a theoretical and experimental study published in Nature Physics, an international team of researchers led by Prof. Maciej Lewenstein (ICFO -Spain) and Dr. Paraskevas Tzallas (FORTH-Greece), demonstrates the generation of highly non-classical states of light in intense laser–atom interactions.
