Apoptosis is programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
Researchers have investigated the role of the interplays within the proteins membranes of viral families involved in the control of programmed cell death.
Using machine learning and gene sequencing, scientists from New York University have designed a “developmental atlas” of gene expression in neurons to classify over 250,000 neurons in the brains of fruit flies.
A paper recently uploaded to bioRxiv* aimed to utilize genome-wide CRISPR screening to identify genes involved in modulating the activity of COVID-19 drugs.
A new study by researchers from the Medical University of Vienna could prove beneficial for the human immune system.
In their quest to destroy cancer cells, researchers are turning to combinational therapies more and more. Scientists from Germany and China have now combined a chemotherapeutic and photodynamic approach.
Mice study has revealed a formerly unknown interaction between an immune cell protein and molecules extracted from dietary fiber.
When Goping’s research team found that a protein was linked to poor outcomes in breast cancer patients, she wanted to find out the reason behind this.
Enteric pathogens, such as the bacterium Shigella, can cause severe intestinal disease with bloody diarrhea. In a new study, researchers from Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) discovered a novel molecular survival strategy by which Shigella is able to cause damage to the intestines despite two elaborate protective mechanisms used by host cells.
Researchers have discovered that when DNA in the moss Physcomitrella patens is damaged, it causes cells to reprogram on their own to change into stem cells.
Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute scientists have discovered a previously unknown method used by bacteria to evade immune responses.
AZoLifeSciences speaks to Dr. James Whittle and Professor Geoff Lindeman about their research in enhancing breast cancer therapy through killing sleeper cells.
When our neurons -- the principle cells of the brain -- die, so do we. Most neurons are created during embryonic development and have no "backup" after birth.
The cover for issue 29 of Oncotarget features Figure 5, "In vivo effects of treatment with L-Grb2 in combination with anti-angiogenic therapy in an ovarian tumor model," by Lara, et al. which reported that adaptor proteins such as growth factor receptor-bound protein-2 play important roles in cancer cell signaling.
A new study has revealed that environmental pollutants pose toxicological risks to finless porpoises (Neophocaena asiaeorientalis).
Bacteria of the genus Bartonella are parasites that can be transmitted to humans via insect bites and animal scratches, resulting in an infection known as "bartonellosis." Cat-scratch disease and trench fever are forms of bartonellosis caused by different Bartonella species infecting humans.
Scientists from the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University and National University of Science and Technology "MISiS" have studied how magnet nanoparticles affect cancer cells in the human liver.
Silicone molecules extracted from breast implants can trigger the processes in human cells that result in apoptosis.
When pathogenic bacteria infect, the body’s immune system attempts to remove these invaders. One method to do this is to trigger an inflammatory response.
Ludwig-Maximilian-Universitaet in Munich researchers have discovered a hitherto unknown molecular function of a specific microRNA that preserves integrity of the endothelium and reduces the risk of atherosclerosis.
For the first time, researchers from Van Andel Institute have explained the near-atomic level structure of a molecular route that has crucial roles to play in the regulation of blood pressure, cell death, inflammation, and human development.
