LONDON, July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:
Anthrax uses a receptor on the surface of cells to inject its lethal toxins.
Several years ago, Prof. Michael Fainzilber and his group in the Biological Chemistry Department made a surprising discovery: Proteins thought to exist only near the cell nucleus could also be found in the far-off regions of the body's longest cells – peripheral nerve cells that extend processes called axons, reaching up to a meter in length in adult humans.
To solve a mystery, sometimes a great detective need only study the clues in front of him.
Each time a cell divides -- and it takes millions of cell divisions to create a fully grown human body from a single fertilized cell -- its chromosomes have to be accurately divvied up between both daughter cells.
Researchers at Delft University of Technology and the University of Basel have established a biomimetic nanopore that provides a unique test and measurement platform for the way that proteins move into a cell's nucleus.
Dr Joseph Glavy at Stevens Institute of Technology studies the smallest and most basic elements of life.
Size matters when it comes to the nucleus of a cell, and now scientists have discovered the signals that control how big the nucleus gets.
By constructing a microscope apparatus that achieves resolution never before possible in living cells, researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have illuminated the molecular interactions that occur during one of the most important "trips" in all of biology: the journey of individual messenger Ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules from the nucleus into the cytoplasm (the area between the nucleus and cell membrane) so that proteins can be made.
