19th January the representatives of the Federal Agency for Scientific Organizations (FASO Russia), Department Education of Moscow and the heads of 17 schools of Moscow visited the Shemyakin&Ovchinnikov Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The purpose of the visit was a meeting where administration of the Institute and guests discussed a joint work within the framework of the FASO Russia project “Academic Class” (Science and Technology class in Moscow school).
- Researchers from IBCh found out how the protein isoforms diverse
Researchers of the IBCh RAS and the Federal Research and Clinical center of Physical-Chemical Medicine of FMBA of Russia found that alternative splicing of messenger RNAs makes a non-significant contribution to the plant cell proteome diversity. The results have been published in the Scientific Reports journal.
- Chemists discovered a new mechanism of action of a Vipera nikolskii venom neurotoxin
Scientists from the Shemyakin-Ovchinnikov Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry RAS (IBCh RAS) with the participation of colleagues from the Institute of Human Morphology of RAMS and the Pirogov RSMU found that the enzyme phospholipase A2 from the Vipera nikolskii venom is able to adhere to lipid membranes (prototypes of cell membranes) and cause their aggregation, even if the activity of enzyme is specifically blocked. It turned out that this is due to the presence of two binding sites in the enzyme structure. Published in the journal Toxicon the results of the work help to understand how the multicomponent snakes’ venoms work.
- The researchers of the IBCh RAS took part at the international conference nAChR 2017
From 7 to 11 May the fourth international conference on nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR 2017) was held on the island of Crete (Greece) in which scientists from the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry RAS took part. Together with other leading experts in the field of neurobiology associated with cholinergic transmission, they discussed the genetic, molecular, structural and cellular aspects of research and told what key trends in the development of this scientific area are actively supported now.
