How Cells Build Hard Parts

...of molecular biology, protein chemistry, nucleation thermodynamics, and crystal growth.  Some organisms build minerals inside cells, outside cells, or between cells.  Davis found one example particularly attractive to the materials...

Stem Cell Cover-Up?

Stem cells, most have heard, hold promise for many life-saving cures.  Michael Fumento in Insight Magazine claims that while adult stem cells have shown many positive results, the media and...

Elaborate Quality Control Governs the Cell’s Protein-Folding Factory

extremely harmful to cells,” the authors begin.  How harmful?  Here is a short list of diseases that can result from improperly folded proteins or failures in the quality control systems...

Cells Find Signal in the Noise

...Cells have a novel way of meeting this challenge, as two Japanese mathematical biologists discuss in PNAS.1  Cells are continuously sending and receiving chemical messages, a process called signal transduction. ...

Stem Cell Breakthrough

to work with human skin cells.     If this technique bears fruit with real treatments, it could end the need for embryonic stem cells.  National Geographic, however, said it...

Subway System Found in Immune Cells

...new way for immune cells to communicate with one another: long, narrow tubes that enable them to connect and exchange molecules.”  These subway tunnels between cells pass molecules quickly from...

Adult Stem Cells Lead Health Progress

51; Adult stem cells (AS) and induced pluripotent stem cells from adult tissues (iPS) continue to rack up tallies over embryonic stem cells (ESA).  Do we really need the embryonic...

“Genomic Junk” Is Cell’s Air-Traffic Control

...can and do play a leading role.”     Speaking of differences in brain cells and liver cells, another article on Science Daily smashed a paradigm: “DNA Not The Same...

White Blood Cells Walk to Infection on Tiny Legs

51; How do white blood cells know where to go when infection strikes?  The cells have tiny little feet and crawl like millipedes, against the blood stream, if necessary, following...
