In 1982 in front of the IBCh RAS was placed sculpture of valinomycin in complex with potassium ion which reminds us about fundamental meaning of depsipeptides, structure and action mechanism of which were examined in detail by scientists of IBCh under the direction of Yuri Ovchinnikov.
- Сalculations with Nanoscale Smart Particles
Researchers from the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Institute of General Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology have made an important step towards creating medical nanorobots. They discovered a way of enabling nano- and microparticles to produce logical calculations using a variety of biochemical reactions. Details of their research project are given in the journal Nature Nanotechnology.
- Novel luciferin from Siberian bioluminescent worm
The structure of a novel luciferin was determined for the first time in the last 25 years as a result of collaboration between groups from IBCh RAS (Moscow) and IBP SB RAS (Krasnoyarsk) — results published in Angewandte Chemie IntEd.
- In silico prediction of transmembrane dimers for bitopic proteins
Laboratory of biomolecular modeling at Shemyakin-Ovchinnikov Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry (IBCh) for several years has been developing computational technique for theoretical assessment of dimerization modes for transmembrane (TM) domains of receptor tyrosine kinases. This dimerization represents an important molecular event in cell growth and differentiation. A (rather) simple prediction tool for possible configuration of TM-dimers is now available as a PREDDIMER web service: http://model.nmr.ru/preddimer.
