Celery is a frequent cause of food allergy in pollen-sensitized patients and may induce severe allergic reactions. Allergic reactions against celery are of major clinical relevance due to celery's wide presence in convenience foods and spice. Approximately 3% - 4% of the European and American population and 5% of young children are affected by immunoglobulin E (IgE) mediated food allergy. The symptoms ranging from mild oral pruritus to a possible life-threatening anaphylactic shock.</p> <strong>Technology</strong><br> We offer novel linear IgE-binding peptide epitopes of the major celery aller-gen Api g1 for the diagnosis and therapy of celery allergy. The peptides can also serve as a basis for the detection of traces of Api g1 allergens in food and other products. Based on the novel peptides, a high specific assay was developed which allows the differentiation between celery allergic patients and healthy individuals.</p>

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
