Department of

Biosciences

A wide range of advanced biological research activities are performed in the Department of Biosciences: from curiosity-driven “basic science” disciplines to investigations into the molecular basis of life. The scientific interests of the Department are directed towards understanding the organization and evolution of biodiversity, from the structure and function of biomolecules, to the cellular, ..

Focus on  

Identified the role of the transcription factor Nfix in skeletal muscle regeneration

The group of Prof.Graziella Messina published the article titled “Nfix Regulates Temporal Progression of Muscle Regeneration through Modulation of Myostatin Expression” on Cell Reports. This work identifies the role of the transcription factor Nfix in skeletal muscle regeneration upon acute damage. Nfix, through the modulation of Myostatin, a well-known regulator of skeletal muscle differentiation, is necessary for the correct timing of the regenerative process

Conformational Mechanism for the Stability of Microtubule-Kinetochore

Partiamo dalla domanda iniziale: in biologia non è stato ancora chiarito il meccanismo con cui i cromosomi si dividono e questo aspetto è cruciale per comprendere una serie di patologie, compreso il cancro. Mentre normalmente i biologi partono con il cercare di capire i fattori biologici implicati senza avere una visione complessiva del problema, il nostro approccio interdisciplinare è stato di integrare le nozioni già presente in letteratura in un quadro complessivo, tenendo conto della meccanica e utilizzando la meccanica come fattore integrante dei vari fattori.
