Scientists from EMBL Heidelberg and the University Clinic Heidelberg, among them two CellNetworks Members, shed new light on the molecular background of a rare form of the iron overload disorder haemochromatosis. This hereditary disease, which leads the body to store excessive amounts of iron, is among the most common genetic disorders in Northern Europe, affecting about 100,000 people in Germany alone.

Small chemical modifications such as DNA methyl groups can tell the cell whether a given gene is expressed or not. Scientists from the German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ), among them two CellNetworks Member and a CellNetworks postdoc program alumnus, have now discovered how the methyl marks can regulate gene activity: They influence where the DNA wraps around its packaging proteins to form complexes called nucleosomes. The removal of the methyl groups makes these nucleosomes unstable, and previously inaccessible DNA regions are released for binding of enzymes that affect gene activity. READ MORE

Researchers of Heidelberg University and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) have developed a new method to control processes in living cells by means of light signals. This newly developed system makes it possible to analyze the movement of proteins within cells and is therefore interesting for both general and applied science. The scientists involved in this project have now published their research results in the scientific journal “Nature Communications“. READ MORE
