Molecular biologists in the School of Medicine at The University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio have found a novel way to fine-tune the activity of cells' protein-disposing machinery, with potentially cancer-fighting effects.
Scientists studying cancer development have known about micronuclei for some time.
Marine bacteria change swimming directions with a sideways flick of their lone flagellum, a type of high-speed controlled failure first documented in 2011 as a unique swimming stroke but whose underlying mechanism had eluded researchers until now.
Using highly sensitive fluorescent probes, a team of scientists from the University of Connecticut has captured the never-before-seen structural dynamics of an important protein channel inside the cell's primary power plant – the mitochondrion.
The Life, Earth and Health Sciences Magazine EurekaMag.com provides 36 million references including 11 million summaries in the basic and applied biological, geographical and agricultural sciences.
It's not going to happen while you're peering through your binoculars, but African glossy starlings change color more than 10 times faster than their ancestors and even their modern relatives
A team of researchers has captured images of green alga consuming bacteria, offering a glimpse at how early organisms dating back more than 1 billion years may have acquired free-living photosynthetic cells.
Experiments at Johns Hopkins have unearthed clues about which protein signaling molecules are allowed into hollow, hair-like "antennae," called cilia, that alert cells to critical changes in their environments.
Cells ingest proteins and engulf bacteria by a gymnastic, shape-shifting process called endocytosis.
