New optogenetic tool developed, partly funded by the SFB 1280

The news portal of the RUB reports:

The teams led by Melanie Mark from the RUB Behavioural Neurobiology group and Stefan Herlitze from the RUB Department of General Zoology and Neurobiology published their new discovery in the journal Nature Communications on 23 July 2021. Their experiments on the light-controllable protein Opsin bring a new possibility for research. Unlike already used optogenetic proteins, which are activated by light, opsin is deactivated by illumination. The experiments were funded by the SFB 1280, among others.
