Elucidation of the metabolism of undecaprenyl phosphate, a key lipid for bacterial cell wall polymers biosynthesis – BACTOPRENYL
The present project aims at the complete elucidation of a «black box« of bacterial metabolism that, surprisingly, has not been investigated in great detail up to now: the biosynthesis and recycling of undecaprenyl-phosphate (C55-P), an essential carrier lipid that is required for the synthesis of various cell wall components such as the peptidoglycan.
resulting in increased morbidity and mortality. All features of the metabolic syndrome, including obesity,
Rapidly developing optical imaging techniques require new advanced molecular tools – fluorescent probes. The present project will develop new probes having several functions: specific membrane staining, specific recognition of the membrane proteins (receptors) and color-response to lipid domains in plasma membranes, especially in the nanoscopic surrounding of the receptor.
Modulation of Integrase Activity by Means of Conformationaly Constrained Nucleotides – MIAM CoCoNuts
We wish to demonstrate that the entropic benefit created in conformationaly constrained nucleotides, can be successfully translated to the formation of a complex nucleic structure such as an holiday junction and finally to the protein /nucleic acid complex to give new insight of its action mode.

covered by mercury vapor lamps which are cheap but feature many inconveniences such as limited lifetime, power
skilled players that will amply scan through the features of bonding among different systems and will be
How self-relevance appraisal affects the reading of emotion: a multi-disciplinary approach. – SELFREADEMO
This project aims at determining what are the main factors and mechanisms influencing the reading emotions of others; a basic process for social adaptation. In particular, we defend the view that evaluation of self-relevance is critical for taking into account human flexibility in the reading of emotional expressions.
