  Novel technique for single protein observation

Photo of article Researchers must be able to recognise how proteins work so that they can understand the related biological processes that occur at the molecular level. They get this information by labelling proteins with fluorescent substances. The problem with this method, however, is that it alters the proteins and influences the biological processes under investigation. A new study from Germany has pioneered a novel method able to observe individual proteins. Presented in the journal Nano Letters, the research was funded in part by the SINGLESENS ('Single metal nanoparticles as molecular sensors') project, led by Professor Carsten Sönnichsen, who in 2010 received a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant worth EUR 1.5 million under the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).

  Study reveals success behind ocean bacteria

Photo of article The ocean is home to our planet's most successful bacteria new research from Sweden shows. Funded in part by the GENOME EVOLUTION ('Tracing the evolution of alpha-proteobacterial genomes') project that clinched a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowships (EIF) grant worth EUR 166 500 under the EU's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), the study sheds fresh light on why bacteria that form part of the SAR11 group are successful and also probes some generally accepted theories. Published in two articles in the journals Molecular Biology and Evolution and PLoS ONE, the research found a rare and unknown relative of mitochondria — the 'energisers' of cells.
