Sauropod dinosaurs were huge herbivorous creatures, whose brain structures were markedly different from those of their anceestors, for the earliest representatives of the group were small, lithe carnivores.
Progress on the way to smart nanomachines: LMU chemists have modified the synthesis of a molecular motor so as to reduce the speed of its light-driven rotation, thus permitting the researchers to analyze the mechanism of motion in complete detail.
The presence of DNA in mammalian cell cytoplasm triggers an immune response by binding to a dimeric enzyme, which inserts between DNA double helices to form the “rungs” of a ladder-like structure, as an LMU team has now shown.
From helping journalists meet a looming deadline to assisting with long-lead stories on university themes, LMU’s Office of Communications & Media Relations offers support to international print, broadcast and online media. more
