Latest Epithelium Stories
Developmental processes are increasingly well-characterized at the molecular and cell biological levels, but how more complex tissues and organs involving the coordinated action of multiple cell types in three dimensions is achieved remains something of a black box.
With intensity a million times brighter than sunlight, a new synchrotron-based imaging technique offers high-resolution pictures of the molecular composition of tissues with unprecedented speed and quality.
There's a new "first" in the world of tissue engineering.
Cells at the tip of the slime mold's fruiting body organize into an epithelial layer and secrete proteins as do some animals cells.
In biology, the key to a healthy life is organization.
Researchers at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and colleagues reported today on a new advance in tissue engineering.
The intestinal epithelium consists of four main specialized cell lineages: absorptive enterocytes and three secretory cell types known as enteroendocrine, Paneth, and goblet cells.
Foregut duplication cyst of the stomach is rare.
Researchers at Mayo Clinic in Florida have found that a molecule long believed to be a beneficial tumor suppressor â€” and thus a potential cancer drug target â€” appears to act as an oncogene in some lethal brain tumors.
In a study to be published online Oct. 21 in PLoS Genetics, researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have implicated the lack of a protein important in hooking our skin cells together in the most common variety of skin cancer.
