Identification of functional olfactory receptors in human taste cells opens doors to new approaches to modify food flavor
Killer immune cells that can fight all strains of influenza virus provide the potential for a universal, one-shot flu vaccine
Researchers saw increases in the size and number of fat cells in laboratory models following exposure, even at diluted concentrations
Researchers have shown how cells adapt to stressors, like water loss, by reprogramming their internal signaling networks
Kyle Lampe, an assistant professor of chemical engineering in the University of Virginia’s School of Engineering and Applied Science, is growing cells in three-dimensional hydrogels, an environment closer than petri dishes to how cells grow on their own. He can control the hydrogel’s softness or stiffness, and by raising the cells in a three-dimensional solution, the cells react more closely to how they would in nature
Patients who receive more cells get significant benefits. That’s a key lesson emerging from a clinical trial that was reported Nov. 17 at the American Heart Association meeting in Chicago.
Scripps Research Institute scientists convert human skin cells into sensory neurons
The new method lets researchers identify weak and previously undetectable interactions between proteins inside living cells.
The switch controls the growth of telomeres, the timekeepers of cells.
