Welcome!

I have no idea of how you found this blog but I am so glad you did!

This is a scientist’s blog born in 2016 with the short post titled Decision addiction that has so far collected 1 ‘like’! Sweet! I hope you like flowers and urban gardens! I am a PhD-ed biologist/geneticist who crossed biotechnology, biochemistry, protein science, food science, material science, biomedical devices and is now curious about cosmetic science and innovation, I started working in a biochemistry lab as a student in 2004 for my master thesis and, here I am, sitting in a cosmetic lab and still surrounded by very active white coats.
With my daily contributions, I have touched more than 2K topics going form pink to relax, from biochemistry to space, from being a scientist to the future… I still can’t believe it. Feel free to snoop around, this place is for you… and don’t forget to leave a comment!

1ncx: Creativity in the SHOP

In moments of boredom or concern, seeing how beautiful the structures of nature are can reassure and inspire! I went back to my favourite molecules and selected some protein structures to bring some dynamism and creativity in our SHOP. Have a look at the NEW items with this protein!

This crystal structure belongs to the Troponin C that is a protein looking like a double hammer and very important for our heart!

Troponin C

Troponin C is key for muscle contraction. for its action, it binds calcium ions and it is a component of thin filaments, along with actin and tropomyosin. (read more at Wikipedia, Sciencedirect and DOI: 10.1016/s1097-2765(01)00318-5)

Proteins at their best: crystals!

Getting bored on a Sunday night, I have decided to get lost into the world of protein crystals. Insulin is used as a crystal and they are even studied as functional materials nowadays.
