Our researchers, who study the physical mechanisms of action of short electrical and electromagnetic pulses on protein systems, participated in an interesting research.

Research at the intersection of physics and biology has shown that with the help of high-intensity short electropulses it is possible to influence the structure of microtubules, which are the parts of the inner skeleton of a cell. This discovery could be used for controlling the growth of the cancer cells in tumour diseases, and thus to treat them. The researchers from the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the CAS found it in collaboration with their colleagues from the Institute of Photonics and Electronics of the CAS, the Institute of Physiology of the CAS and the University of Limoges, France.
