Am Freitag, den 23.02.2018 findet der jährliche Schüler-Info-Tag 2018 für alle an Chemie oder Pharmazie interessierten Schüler statt.
Chemical modification of DNA subunits contribute to the regulation of gene expression. LMU researchers have now deciphered a new pathway can reactivate genes that have been silenced in this way, while avoiding the risk of damaging the DNA.
A team led by LMU‘s Veit Hornung has elucidated the mechanism by which human cells induce inflammation upon detection of cytoplasmic DNA. Notably, the signal network involved differs from that used in the same context in mice.
