Researchers from UL FFA published a chapter in a scientific monography Epigenetics of Aging and Longevity-Translational Epigenetics by a prominent publisher Elsevier
Due to expertise in the field of epigenetics and bone diseases, the research group from the Department of Clinical Biochemistry led by prof. Janja Marc was invited to contribute a chapter entitled Epigenetic Mechanisms in Osteoporosis in a book Epigenetics of Aging and Longevity-Translational Epigenetics Vol 4. Barbara Ostanek, Tilen Kranjc, Nika Lovšin, Janja Zupan and Janja Marc reviewed the current understanding of the epigenetic mechanisms in osteoporosis.
Researchers of Faculty of Pharmacy participated in discovery how D-cycloserine works at the molecular level
A paper published in Nature Communications reveals a deeper understanding of how D-cycloserine binds to the D-alanine-D-alanine ligase enzyme and becomes chemically modified on the enzyme. The chemical species formed here has never been seen before and it opens up possibility of development of new antibiotic drugs that will be devoid of unwanted side effects.
