Collagen is a fibrous protein found in cartilage and other connective tissue.
Similar to other orange fruits and vegetables, mangoes have abundant beta-carotene and also contain antioxidants that may delay damage to cells.
Ligament injuries that affect scores of regular citizens and athletes are sidelined every year. Added to this, recovery is painful and takes a long time and, at times, a return to normal function is never achieved because of the formation of scars—an aspect that makes ligament injuries inclined to more damage.
The shells of crustaceans and wood waste such as branches pruned from trees usually end up in landfills. These waste materials are given a new lease of life to become nutritional supplements and medicine, with the help of a novel process developed by researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS).
Human cells are encased by a membrane coated with diverse sugar molecules known as glycans. These glycans play many roles in health and disease, making them important to understand.
A global study has discovered the heart cells responsible for repairing the damage induced to this vital organ following infarction.
Researchers at Kumamoto University, Japan generated mice lacking the estrogen receptor beta (ERβ) gene, both fiber-specific and muscle stem cell-specific, which resulted in abnormalities in the growth and regeneration of skeletal muscle in female mice.
Zika virus infection during pregnancy can cause severe abnormalities in the fetus, including malformations such as microcephaly. In a small proportion of cases, the disease may lead to miscarriage and perinatal death.
According to results from a study, middle-aged mice had a better “old age” when the naturally-occurring metabolite, called AKG, was added to their food.
AMSBIO offers a comprehensive range of end-to-end services for exosome purification, characterization, and engineering.
A group of researchers from the University of Toronto have developed a credit-card sized tool for growing cancer cells outside the human body, which they believe will enhance their understanding of breast cancer metastasis.
Researchers at the GSK Center for Optical Molecular Imaging have developed a new microscope that looks at the different parameters that change during wound healing. They hope to use this technique to understand how skin disorders, such as foot ulcers in diabetic patients and psoriasis, can be treated.
An international research team has used new X-ray techniques to describe how the architecture of healthy human bones is built up. The team has uncovered a hitherto unknown structure in healthy bones.
ETH researchers have deconstructed the mechanisms that control wound healing and scar formation in more detail.
Fibroblasts synthesize the collagen, creating the structural framework for animal tissues, and play a significant role in the process of wound healing.
Heart protein cardiac myosin, which is released into the body when a person suffers a heart attack, can cause blood to thicken or clot.
Headed by researchers from Japan-based Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT), a group of scientists has effectively established three-dimensional (3D) cultured tissue that imitates liver fibrosis, which is a major trait of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).
A method using noninvasive raman spectroscopy has been developed by scientists to measure blood glucose levels without the use of needles.
AZO LifeSciences talks to Ian Wong about a new imaging technique that maps forces cell clusters exert on their surroundings.
Chemists from MIT and Harvard University have elucidated the structure of a strange bacterial enzyme with the ability to break down an amino acid found in collagen.
Hydrogels are widely used materials for various applications in areas ranging from medicine, cosmetics, and tissue engineering to food and agriculture.
