An asymmetric structure of the Leptospira´s flagellar filament

Date and venue:  2024, February 22th al 10.00 CET. B6 room- CNB/CSIC, Madrid Summary Description:Leptospira species, as all spirochetes, possess specially adapted endoflagella confined within the periplasm. Endoflagella are essential for the fast corkscrew-like swimming and pathogenicity of leptospires. However, little is known about the composition, function, and molecular architecture of these endoflagellar filaments. Through

Structural studies on cyanide degrading nitrilases

Date and venue:  2024, February 15th al 10.00 CET. B6 room – CNB/CSIC Summary Description: Cyanide is widely used in industries due to its high affinity for metals. This characteristic is at the same time responsible for the potent toxicity of this compound. Thus, industries have to reduce the cyanide concentration from wastewater before its
