Imaging and tracking a key player in the disease made possible by a new marker: Because of its frequent occurrence and socio-economic relevance, Alzheimer’s disease is a major subject of biomedical research, and many pieces of the puzzle of its origin are already in place. However, methods for tackling certain important unsolved questions about the molecular basis of the disease are still missing in the researchers’ toolbox. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research and Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg have now developed a tool for studying one of the key players involved in the disease. This new marker allows tracking and imaging of the enzyme BACE1 without requiring antibodies or genetic manipulation. The marker could be valuable in the development of new therapies. READ MORE

The maturation process of virophages give us new insights. First, a virus infects a host, such as a unicellular organism in the plankton in the ocean, and then its development is blocked because it is itself attacked by a virus? In this unusual tripartite event, the second virus (termed a virophage) helps the host to survive. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research in Heidelberg have now studied the atomic structure and maturation process of the Mavirus virophage, and thus contributed to understanding this system. Their results could, in the future, allow virus particles to be constructed whose properties can be modified, making them useful in biotechnology. READ MORE
