A research team led by a cell biologist at the University of California, Riverside has generated a 3D model of the human malaria parasite genome at three different stages in the parasite's life cycle — the first time such 3D architecture has been generated during the progression of the life cycle of a parasite.
By illuminating mitochondria, UVA researchers shed light on disease and human health. Charlottesville, VA (PRWEB) April 03, 2014 Under the microscope,
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.
Mitochondria, long known as "cellular power plants" for their generation of the key energy source adenosine triphosphate (ATP), are essential for proper cellular functions.
Robust genetic catalog will allow better comparison of normal cells, cancer cells WASHINGTON, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Research published online today in
First win for Singapore in annual GE Healthcare Life Sciences cell imaging competition
By simulating a geologic precursor of cell metabolism, a team of British and American scientists have taken an important step toward understanding how life arose on Earth. Widely supported theories posit that life emerged on Earth around hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor...
Rather than your average bowl of Lucky Charms, these are three-dimensional cell cultures generated by an exciting new digital microfluidics platform, the results of which have been published in Nature Communications this week by researchers at the University of Toronto.
A protein that has been known until recently as part of a complex communications network within the cell also plays a direct role in regulating sugar metabolism.
Ribosomes, the cellular machines that build proteins, are themselves made up of dozens of proteins and a few looping strands of RNA.
Cell is a peer-reviewed scientific journal founded by Benjamin Lewin in January 1974 with the sponsorship of MIT Press. Lewin bought the rights to the journal in 1986 and published it under his own publishing arm Cell Press. Cell Press was sold to Elsevier in 1999, which currently publishes Cell twice monthly. Cell Press publishes several biomedical journals, including Cell, Neuron, Immunity, Molecular Cell, Developmental Cell, Cancer Cell, Current Biology, Structure, Chemistry &...
