Researchers at the M.M. Shemyakin and Yu.A. Ovchinnikov Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences have collaborated with their colleagues from the A.N. Severtsova Institute of Ecology and Evolution in groundbreaking research work in which they discovered in lamprey the homeobox gene Anf / Hesx1, which is the most ancient gene in the existing living vertebrate. The research findings that they published in the Scientific Reports journal support the scientists’ hypothesis that the appearance of this gene in vertebrates created the conditions necessary for the emergence of the telencephalon.
- Scientists Train Mushrooms to Glow in all Colors of the Rainbow
Researchers at the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IBCh RAS), the Institute of Biophysics of the Krasnoyarsk Scientific Center SB RAS (IBP SB RAS) and the Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University, together with colleagues from Brazil and Japan, have drawn even closer to finally unveiling the secret of the mechanism that mushrooms use to glow. They successfully determined the structure of the molecule of oxyluciferin, a product of the luminescence reaction, from fungi (in this case, mushrooms were used), and also synthesized several artificial replicas of luciferin, which emit light of different colors. This groundbreaking work was funded by a grant from the Russian Science Foundation, RSF, and the results published in the journal Science Advances.
- Russian-German Symposium on Molecular Neurobiology Dedicated to the Memory of Eugene Grishin
On 5-9 April 2017, Russian-German symposium entitled ‘Molecular Neurobiology Today and Tomorrow’ dedicated to the memory of Academician Eugene Grishin took place at the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences. More than 30 leading scientists from Russia and Germany, specialists in neurobiology and neurochemistry, gathered at the Institute to honor the memory of Eugene Grishin and discuss the most pressing scientific issues, to which the academician had devoted his scientific career.
