Latest Cell cycle Stories
Biologists have long-wondered what causes a rapidly-growing cell to split: The size it reaches? Or the length of time it's been growing? Now, they have an answer.
Visiopharm's new Virtual Double Staining (VDS) Ki67 module for breast is a novel, patented and now CE-marked diagnostic APP intended for automated tumor/stroma separation and computation of
A drug that blocks the action of the enzyme Cdk5 could substantially reduce brain damage if administered shortly after a stroke.
An international team led by researchers at UC Davis has shown that the cyclin B1/Cdk1 protein complex, which plays a key role in cell division, also boosts the mitochondrial activity to power that process.
From far away, the top of a leaf looks like one seamless surface; however, up close, that smooth exterior is actually made up of a patchwork of cells in a variety of shapes and sizes.
In textbooks, the grand-finale of cell division is the tug-of-war fought inside dividing cells as duplicated pairs of chromosomes get dragged in opposite directions into daughter cells.
New research by scientists at the University of Exeter has shown that cells demonstrate remarkable flexibility and versatility when it comes to how they divide - a finding with potential links to the underlying causes of many cancers.
Researchers at the Cell Cycle Research Group of the Bellvitge Institute of Biomedical Research (IDIBELL) led by Ethel Queralt have reported in the journal PLoS Genetics an article which delve into the regulator mechanisms of mitosis, a key stage of the cell-cycle for the correct transmission of genetic information from parents to sons.
Cyclin D1, a protein that helps push a replicating cell through the cell cycle also mediates the processing and generation of mature microRNA (miRNA).
Tokyo, Nov 29, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - Researchers at Waseda University in Japan have identified key information to help explain the formation of the "spindle apparatus", a structure required for cell
