an amazing way to discover and defend our wonderful planet


The life's symphony.

Even proteins' activity has an own music! They vibrations play a sweet sound like the strings of a violin. This is how much was published on "Nature Communications" by a research team from University of Buffalo, New York.

Using a technique never developed before, and realised by the research team, the scientists observed for the first time in detail the vibrations of lisozyme, an antibacterical protein found in many animals ( for istance, lisozime is found in teardrops in humans).

It's thanks to these vibration that proteins can change their shape quickly to join with other proteins and make possible important vital functions in our body, such as cellular respiration and DNA replication.

This amazing research is going to open a door to new methods of study of fundamental cellular processes that are the ones which allows the life.
