Discovery of the new mechanism of signaling complex transfer from cancer cells with extracellular vesicles
Ljubljana, 24.01.2018

Cells react to environmental changes by transmitting the signals, which induce processes like inflammatory response. MyD88 protein is important in immune response signaling induced by infection or other injuries. On the other...[more1]

On phonons and water flow enhancement in carbon nanotubes
Ljubljana, 11.12.2017

The intriguing physics of water transport through carbon nanotubes (CNTs) has motivated numerous studies, reporting flow rates higher than those estimated by continuum models. The quantification of water transport in CNTs remains...[more1]

Coiled-coil protein origami -- a new generation of designed protein structures
Ljubljana, 17.10.2017

Proteins are nature’s nano-robots performing key processes necessary for sustaining life. They are built as a linear chain of amino acids which encodes information about the 3D structure and their function. The number of possible...[more1]

New Ir-Ru electrocatalyst for sustainable water electrolysis
Ljubljana, 27.09.2017

The transition to renewable energy sources through hydrogen technologies involves the electrolysis of water. Polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolysis represents a highly efficient, responsive, dynamic and convenient...[more1]

Stability of iridium-based electrocatalysts
Ljubljana, 05.09.2017

Iridium-based particles are regarded as the most promising electrocatalysts to be used in future electrolyzers. In this work we investigated in detail the electrocatalytic performance (oxygen evolution reaction) of three...[more1]

Molecular systems with open boundaries: Theory and simulation
Ljubljana, 10.07.2017

Typical experimental setups for molecular systems must deal with a certain coupling to the external environment, that is, the system is open and exchanges mass, momentum, and energy with its surroundings. Instead, standard...[more1]

Modulation of stability of building modules for designed bionanostructures
Ljubljana, 09.06.2017

The coiled-coil dimer is a widespread protein structural motif and, due to its designability, represents an attractive building block for assembling modular nanostructures, which we demonstrated in 2013 in a paper in...[more1]

Structure of a Stable G Hairpin
Ljubljana, 04.04.2017

An 11-nt long G-rich DNA oligonucleotide, 5′-d(GTGTGGGTGTG)-3′, corresponding to the most abundant sequence motif in irregular telomeric DNA from Saccharomyces cerevisiae (yeast) has been shown to fold into a G-hairpin. The first...[more1]

Comparative genomics reveals high biological diversity and specific adaptations in the industrially and medically important fungal genus Aspergillus
Ljubljana, 17.02.2017

The fungal genus Aspergillus is of critical importance to humankind. Species include those with industrial applications, important pathogens of humans, animals and crops, a source of potent carcinogenic contaminants of food, and...[more1]

Origin of hydrophobicity
Ljubljana, 24.01.2017

Hydrophobicity or water repelling is one of the most important phenomena in nature. The physical origin of hydrophobicity remains unclear even after seven decades of intense research. The classical explanation of hydrophobicity...[more1]
