Ljubljana, 16 May – Produced an international group of researchers, including researchers from the Jožef Stefan Institute (IJS), macromolecule hollow protein, which is similar to football in its form, which promises to be used in pharmaceuticals for transferring active ingredients to sites targeted in cells, reported by the IJS. The survey results were published today by the prestigious Nature magazine.
Researchers, led by Jonathan Heddle of Jagiellonian University Cracow, produced macromolecule protein containing 24 protein antennas, and a very durable structure to sew with gold atoms rather than thread.
Because similar protein molecules with a hollow structure in organisms control important life functions, the new discovery is interesting as it promises to use the pharmacy to transfer the active ingredients to the t target sites in the cells. A pant structure envelope can protect and transfer selected molecules within living beings, they wrote in the JSI.
In addition, according to the IJS, the protein molecule is also very interesting in geometric, since the correct polyhedra cannot be composed of the eighteenth, and the self-regulating nature of the protein molecule. This is a disease of the disease and with a small disfigurement composing a "prohibited" football structure similar to thirty-four.
Researchers from Poland, Japan, the United Kingdom and Canada, along with Jozef Stefan Institute researchers have shown that protein cages can be made of such, they have opened a new direction for the creation of synthetic proteins.
The IJS included Mitja Kelemen, Primož Vavpetič and Primož Pelicon, who carried out the research on the IJS ion accelerator in Podgorica, near Ljubljana.
The discovery was presented today by Nature magazine, which is also a sign of important recognition for researchers, written by them in the IJS.
