  3. Role reversal: RNA controls protein function

    EMBL News - Heidelberg, 14 February 2019Ribonucleic acids (RNAs) perform many important roles within cells, mainly ensuring that proteins are made in the right quantities at the right times. Usually, the fate of an RNA is controlled by RNA-binding proteins. However, EMBL scientists in …https://news.embl.de/science/role-reversal-rna-controls-protein-function/
  4. Iron regulators join war on pathogens

    Press Release - Heidelberg, 16 July 2015Proteins responsible for controlling levels of iron in the body also play an important role in combatting infection, according to a study published in Cell Host & Microbe. Humans – along with all living organisms, including pathogens – need iron …https://www.embl.de/aboutus/communication_outreach/media_relations/2015/150716_Hentze/index.html
  5. New ways to look at protein-RNA networks

    EMBL News - Heidelberg, 06 December 2018Scientists at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and EMBL have developed a method that enables researchers to analyse the composition of the entire protein-RNA network of the cell. The new method has now been published in the journal Cell. …https://news.embl.de/science/new-ways-to-look-at-protein-rna-networks
  6. The battle for iron

    Press Release - Heidelberg, 06 February 2015The search for therapies against anaemia of chronic disease (ACD) could take on new directions thanks to a study published today in Blood.

  9. Supply and demand

    Press Release - Heidelberg, 03 August 2010In a study published today in Cell Metabolism, scientists at EMBL Heidelberg have discovered that a group of proteins called IRPs ensure that iron balance is kept and as such are essential for cell survival. More specifically, they found that IRP…https://www.embl.de/aboutus/communication_outreach/media_relations/2010/100804_Heidelberg/index.html
  10. Recycler protein helps prevent disease

    Press Release - Heidelberg, 30 April 2009Recycling is important not only on a global scale, but also at the cellular level, since key molecules tend to be available in limited numbers. This means a cell needs to have efficient recycling mechanisms. Researchers at the European Molecular …https://www.embl.de/aboutus/communication_outreach/media_relations/2009/090501_Heidelberg/index.html
