From chemical structure to biological function
Research into the molecular basis of living systems is the leitmotif of biochemistry. A variety of methods is developing with remarkable dynamism to elucidate and influence complex chemical structures as well as their biological functions and interactions. Modern methods of structural analysis enable the elucidation of the biological functions of macromolecules and their complexes. Detailed insights into the mechanisms of enzymatic catalysis, substance and electron transport, signal transduction and cell-cell communication are also gained. As a result of basic biochemical research, for example, recombinant proteins with therapeutic potential could be made available. Genetically modified enzymes with new substrate specificities are also increasingly used in white biotechnology.
The resulting fascination is the basis for a lively interdisciplinary network.
