Fibroblast growth factor 1 effects on specific brain cell types, and on nets that enmesh neurons, inform how it restores blood sugar levels to normal in diabetic animals.
The sci-Plex technique holds promise for cell biology research in cancer, infectious diseases, autoimmune disorders, prenatal medicine and many other medical and basic science areas.
sci-Plex profiles gene expression in thousands of individual cells when a sample is perturbed; the technology holds promise for cancer, infection, prenatal medicine and other research.
One idea for treating disease is to be able to program cells. Now, a major advance in synthetic biology allows for that kind of control that hasn't been seen before.
The suspect, an abnormal, fused protein, gathers enzymes that drive uncontrolled cell growth.
Findings point to possibility of new 'anti-evolution drugs' to keep hard-to-treat pathogens from arising.
This mouse cell atlas is a resource for obtaining a deeper understanding of how specific DNA elements regulate cell type identity.
Studying dynamic changes in chromatin, which stores a cell’s genetic materials, could help unlock how an organism’s many different cell types originally form.
Exploring how genetic instructions guide formation of body parts will be one of the many uses of this first-of-its-kind resource
