A team of scientists from Scripps Research and Stanford University has recorded in real time a key step in the assembly of ribosomes--the complex and evolutionarily ancient "molecular machines" that make proteins in cells and are essential for all life forms.
An interview with Dr Natarajan Ranganathan, key founder and Managing Director of Kibow Biotech Inc. about the use of probiotics for supporting healthy kidney function.
Would you like to unlock unique biological applications for your AFM? Are you interested in single-cell experiments? Then FluidFM might be the right technology to help you with your research.
A new study from Iowa State University entomologists describes how mosquitoes fight off parasites that cause malaria, a disease that sickens millions of people every year.
A new mouse study has revealed more evidence that Parkinson’s disease originates in the gut before traveling to the brain via the body’s neurons.
When someone has a deadly disease or sustains a life-threatening injury, a transplant or graft of new tissue may be the best -- or only -- treatment option.
Researchers from the Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona and the Institute of Biotechnology and Biomedicine have discovered the mechanism by which the bacterium Mycoplasma genitalium) adheres to human cells.
During IndyCar races, pit stop crews will often refuel a car, replace wheels and complete minor repairs on a race car within 10 seconds. In this short time, a dozen or so people work rapidly and in a highly coordinated manner to complete a number of tasks with extraordinary efficiency.
The more scientists explore so-called "junk" DNA, the less the label seems to fit.
Researchers have developed a bone engineering technique that uses stem cells to improve bone grafts for the treatment of bone injury or disease.
Inside the brain, is a complex symphony of perfectly coordinated signaling. Hundreds of different molecules amplify, modify and carry information from tiny synaptic compartments all the way through the entire length of a neuron.
Vampires can turn humans into vampires, but to enter a human's house, they must be invited in. Researchers at the UT Southwestern Medical Center, writing in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, have uncovered details of how cells invite inside corrupted proteins that can turn normal proteins corrupt, leading to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.
The human body is built for survival. Each one of its cells is closely guarded by a set of immune proteins armed with nearly foolproof radars that detect foreign or damaged DNA.
