Latest Outline of cell biology Stories
The human body contains trillions of cells, all derived from a single cell, or zygote, made by the fusion of an egg and a sperm.
Highly expressed in various cancers and known for its cytoprotective properties, TRAP1 protein has been identified as a potential target for antitumor treatments.
Researchers at Stanford University have developed a basic computer using genetic material, according to a report in the journal Science.
Scientists at The University of Manchester have identified how cells know which way up they need to be.
Anthrax uses a receptor on the surface of cells to inject its lethal toxins.
Researchers have successfully developed a stable population of neural crest cells derived from mice that can be grown in large quantities in the laboratory and that demonstrates the potential to develop into many different cell types needed throughout the body.
Scientists at the Gladstone Institutes have discovered that environmental factors critically influence the growth of a type of stem cell--called an iPS cell--that is derived from adult skin cells.
It has long been known that cancer is a disease of aging, but a molecular link between the two has remained elusive.
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 &...
