Inserm and Université de Rennes 1 develop new antibiotics

Researchers at the Bacterial Regulatory RNAs and Medicine joint laboratory together with a team from the Rennes Institute of Chemical Sciences (ISCR) have created two new antibiotics that are effective against both Gram-positive and negative multi-resistant bacteria. The antibiotics appear not…

Could gravitational waves help find exoplanets?

Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute/AEI) in Potsdam and from the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) in Saclay, Paris, have shown how the planned space-based gravitational-wave observatory LISA could detect exoplanets orbiting…

Fluorescent chemical-genetic hybrids spy on protein interactions

Protein-protein interactions are critical for most cellular processes. Researchers from the Département de chimie at the École normale supérieure (ENS) led by Alison Tebo and Arnaud Gautier have now developed splitFAST, a fluorescence complementation system for visualizing transient protein-protein interactions in living cells. Engineered…

No rest for computing hub neurons

Researchers at Inserm are the first to have described the behaviour and language of the neurons responsible for memory consolidation during sleep. They have shown that, far from being organized in a static and linear way as was previously thought,…

Acting on the immune system before cancer occurs

Early detection and treatment of cancer is critical for patients suffering from the disease. Researchers led by Jérôme Galon and Céline Mascaux at the Centre de Recherche des Cordeliers (Inserm/Université de Paris/Sorbonne Université) have now discovered that the body’s immune response is…

Magnetic singularity comes closer

Researchers have discovered a material crystal composed of cerium, aluminium, germanium, and silicon that changes electrical resistance only when a magnetic field is applied at a narrowly confined angle. The effect, which has been dubbed “singular angular magnetoresistance,” can be…
