Manipulating Cell Membranes Using Nanotubes

May 29, 2015 — Researchers have developed a targeted method for opening up cell membranes in order to deliver drugs to, or manipulate the genes of, individual ... read more

May 27, 2015 — Right before a cell starts to divide to give birth to a daughter cell, its biochemical machinery unwinds the chromosomes and copies the millions of protein sequences comprising the cell's DNA, ... read more

Beyond Average: New Platforms Genetically Barcode Tens of Thousands of Cells at a Time

May 21, 2015 — Two separate research teams have developed high-throughput techniques to quickly, easily and inexpensively give every individual cell in a sample a unique genetic barcode. This allows scientists to ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Scientists have moved a step closer to identifying the nanostructure of cellulose -- the basic structural component of plant cell walls. The insights could pave the way for more disease resistant ... read more

May 19, 2015 — Researchers discovered a new mechanism of how fluorescent proteins can change color. It enables the microscopic visualization of individual cells in their three-dimensional environment in living ... read more

May 18, 2015 — Researchers wanted to know whether the flexibility of the juvenile brain could be restored to the adult brain. Apparently, it can: They've successfully re-created a critical juvenile period in ... read more

May 18, 2015 — The Burmese python's body and organs grow dramatically after it eats and then shrink after the meal is digested. This study is the first to link the extreme body changes directly to changes in ... read more

Belgian Shepherd Dogs Seem to Have Genetic Protection Against Diabetes

May 14, 2015 — A genetic interaction which may protect Belgian shepherd dogs from developing diabetes has been discovered by researchers. In this breed, the scientists found a novel mechanism of regulating blood ... read more

May 13, 2015 — A new study has found a three-way link among antibiotic use in infants, changes in the gut bacteria, and disease later in ... read more

Huntington's Disease Monkeys Display Progressive Clinical Changes and Neurodegeneration

May 12, 2015 — A preclinical, large animal model of Huntington's disease has been developed for assessing new therapeutics, which could ultimately provide better treatment options, possibly including altering ... read more

May 12, 2015 — Chaperones are molecular helpers that assist other proteins with folding. One such chaperone is the so-called heat shock protein 60 (Hsp60). This protein forms structures in mitochondria that ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Cell division is the basis of life and requires that each daughter cell receive the proper complement of chromosomes. In most organisms, this process is mediated at the familiar constricted ... read more

May 12, 2015 — Fish can produce their own sunscreen, scientists have discovered. Following suit, the researchers have copied the method used by fish for potential use in ... read more

May 12, 2015 — Scientists have successfully replicated the molecular processes that led from dinosaur snouts to the first bird ... read more

May 11, 2015 — An American undergraduate science program delves deeply into the bacteriophage genome, and publishes a paper with the second-highest number of authors in history, most of them ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Newly evolved genes can rapidly assume control over fundamental functions during early embryonic development. The findings suggest that evolutionary changes to the genetics of fundamental biological ... read more

May 8, 2015 — New research shows how a single growth factor receptor protein programs the entire genome. The study provides evidence that it all begins with a single "master" growth factor receptor that ... read more

May 8, 2015 — A new gene that enables plants to regulate their growth in different temperatures has been discovered by scientists. The researchers said the findings provided insights into how plants modulate their ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Researchers have developed artificial membranes with programmable features, enabling studies of cell communication and the molecular basis of disease. The new study demonstrates how researchers can ... read more

May 7, 2015 — Every inch of our body, inside and out, is oozing with bacteria. In fact, the human body carries 10 times the number of bacterial cells as human cells. Many are our friends, helping us digest food ... read more
