Vesicles Mimicking Neuron Plasma Membranes Successfully Produced
Giant Unilamellar Vesicles (GUVs) have been successfully produced using a microfluidic chip in our lab. Produced GUVs with specific compositions mimicking neuron plasma membranes will help to study the molecular pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease. Sincere congratulations to Jan C., Martin K., Anthony, David, and Zbynek and big thanks to our collaborators from ETH Zürich.
4th Hands-on Computational Enzyme Design Workshop
Would you like to delve deeper into protein engineering? Loschmidt Laboratories together with Enantis organize an interactive online course exploring web-based tools suitable for mining new enzymes and engineering enzyme activity, specificity, enantioselectivity, stability and solubility. You will have a chance to learn from the developers of these tools, set up optimal calculations and interpret […]
Mystery of Renilla-type Luciferases Solved
The first LL publication in 2023 has come out in Nature Catalysis! We deciphered the molecular principle of the oxidative mechanism by which Renilla-type luciferases generate blue photons. Read more about this amazing & light-emitting enzyme in the just-published paper “Catalytic Mechanism for Renilla-type Luciferases“. The great news has been shared with the general public: […]
New Baby in LL

PredictSNP Onco: Towards Personalized Medicine in Children’s Oncology
We are excited to report the hot testing phase of the PredictSNP Onco web tool. This fully automated web tool conducts multiple analyses of mutations potentially connected with cancer development. The user only selects the target protein and mutation. We estimate whether the mutation is deleterious or neutral. We also analyze the effect of a […]
