Latest Outline of cell biology Stories
While scientists have spent the past 40 years describing the intricate series of events that occur when one mammalian cell divides into two, they still haven't agreed on how the process begins.
Like some people, cells eat when they are under pressureâ€”but they consume parts of themselves.
Stem cells might be thought of as trunks in the tree of life.
Defining of novel mechanism informs understanding of cancer, aging physiology.
WASHINGTON, July 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A major discovery, led by researchers from The George Washington University Medical Center, promises to revolutionize the way scientists think about key aspects of cellular lifecycle and offers a new avenue for cancer researchers to explore in their quest to one day slow down the progression of cancer. The discovery, reported in the article "Arpc 1b, a centrosomal protein, is both an activator and substrate of Aurora A," furthers the science...
Residual "memory" of the tissue of origin makes it harder to turn them into other cell types BOSTON, July 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Adult cells that have been reprogrammed into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) do not completely let go of their past, perhaps limiting their ability to function as a less controversial alternative to embryonic stem cells for basic research and cell replacement therapies, according to researchers at Children's Hospital Boston, John Hopkins University...
Put simply, a tumor is the result of out-of-control cell growth.
Researchers funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC) have discovered for the first time that two proteins called Mahjong and Lgl could be star players in helping to identify how the body's own cells fight back against cancer cells.
Imagine being able to drop a toothpick on the head of one particular person standing among 100,000 people in a stadium.
Cancer occurs when human cells move and multiply inappropriately.
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 &...
