Latest Wnt signaling pathway Stories
Taking clues from their stem cell research, investigators at the University of California San Diego (UC San Diego) and Burnham Institute for Medical Research (Burnham) have discovered that a signaling pathway involved in normal pancreatic development is also associated with type 2 diabetes.
Screening a chemical library of 200,000 compounds, researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have identified two new classes that can be used to study and possibly manipulate a cellular pathway involved in many types of cancer and degenerative diseases.
Scientists say the identification of a specific molecule could be key to understanding the cause of motor neuron disease (MND) and other neurodegenerative disorders.
Clusters of mouse embryonic stem cells called embryoid bodies more closely approximate true embryos in organization and structure than previously thought, according to researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.
U.S. researchers said brain tumors appear to more aggressive when they feed off cancer stem cells that use Sonic Hedgehog protein signaling mechanisms.
Investigators at the Stanford University School of Medicine have found a way to quickly and reversibly fine-tune the activity of individual proteins in cells and living mammals, providing a powerful new laboratory tool for identifying -- more precisely than ever before -- the functions of different proteins.
SAN CARLOS, Calif., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Nuvelo, Inc. today announced that it will hold a conference call and webcast at 8:30 a.m. Eastern time (5:30 a.m. Pacific Time) on Thursday, September 25, 2008 to discuss company news.
The cells lining blood vessels are known to be important for maintaining health, but researchers at the Indiana University School of Medicine believe these cells may perform an unsuspected task â€“ controlling the development of fat cells. Their findings are reported in the September issue of the journal Stem Cells.
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.
