Acetylcholinesterase enzyme

Anti-Alzheimer molecules
With X-ray diffraction techniques it has been possible to obtain detailed information on the structure of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase which is active in the transmission of nerve signals and is targeted by Alzheimer's disease.


Chemical analysis of particulates
A PM10 (particulate matter less than 10 microns in diameter) monitoring method has been set up at Elettra to perform spectroscopic analysis to quantify in real time, all metals from aluminium upwards.

<p>Acetylxylanesterase enzyme</p>

Crystallography based on diffraction techniques has been employed at Elettra to acquire detailed information on the three dimensional structure of some bacterial enzyme that under certain conditions it can be exploited in bio-technological applications.
