What do sled dogs and cell clusters have in common?
The idea of growing replacement tissue to repair an organ, or to swap it out for an entirely new one, is rapidly transitioning from science fiction to fact.
Tiny oil droplets help measure mechanical forces produced by living cells that shape tissues and organs; new method could improve diagnosis of cancer, hypertension, and many other diseases
Villi are small epithelial protrusions that serve to increase the surface area of the gut for efficient nutrient absorption.
In a study that holds major implications for breast cancer research as well as basic cell biology, scientists with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have discovered a rotational motion that plays a critical role in the ability of breast cells to form the spherical structures in the mammary gland known as acini.
Researchers at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) have identified the gene GATA 6 as responsible for epithelial cells -which group together and are static- losing adhesion and moving towards a new site.
Stem cell technologies have been proposed for cell-based diagnostics and regenerative medicine therapies.
One of the most intriguing questions in cancer research is what causes metastatic tumor migration, why some tumor cells manage to migrate to other parts of the body but others cells don't.
By Ramis-Conde, Ignacio Drasdo, Dirk; Anderson, Alexander R A; Chaplain, Mark A J ABSTRACT In this article, we show, using a mathematical multiscale model, how cell adhesion may be regulated by interactions between E-cadherin and beta-catenin and how the control of cell adhesion may be related to cell migration, to the epithelial- mesenchymal transition and to invasion in populations of eukaryotic cells.
