Novel Form of Microbial Symbiosis Discovered

The figure is a composite of a scanning electron microscope image (SEM, grey) and fluorescence images. Visible is the 'Candidatus Azoamicus ciliaticola' endosymbiont (visualized by FISH, yellow) and bacterial prey in food vacuoles as well as the large cell nucleus (stained by DAPI, blue). The outer structure of the weakly fluorescent ciliate as well as the cilia are also visible. Credit: Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology, S. Ahmerkamp.

Researchers have shown the fundamental role of the heterochromatin protein 1a (HP1a) in the reorganization of the 3D chromatin structure after fertilization. By combining powerful Drosophila genetics with 3D genome modeling, they discovered that HP1a is required to establish a proper chromatin 3D structure at multiple hierarchical levels during early embryonic development.

New Method Directly Measures the Growth Rate of Amyloid Fibrils

News

Amyloid fibrils are protein deposits in the body that join together to form microscopic fibres. Their formation has been linked to many serious human diseases including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Type 2 diabetes. Researchers have now invented a technique that can measure the speed of fibril growth in solution.
