Molecular Velcro helps illuminate DNA repair

DNA damage_2_thumbVisualising molecular process in bacteria shows important steps in pathway leading to antibiotic resistance

Using a piece of molecular “Velcro” to attach a light-emitting probe to a protein molecule, University of Wollongong (UOW) researchers have unlocked the mystery of how an important protein goes about repairing damaged DNA in bacteria, with implications for understanding how antibiotic resistance develops. Read more..
