Young embryo devours dangerous cell

Researchers at the University of Würzburg have been able to show how embryos dispose of the life-threatening leftovers of egg maturation.

Forbidden FRET situations on wafer-thin gold

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are the major target molecules for drug discovery. Scientists at the University of Würzburg and the University Hospital Jena have now been able to explore the activation of these receptors in more detail by developing a modern microscopy technique. Increasing the Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) through the use of specially coated coverslips was the key.
