Photo: Colorful cellular structures [18/12/2014] It is the most basic of ways to find out what something does, whether it is an unmarked circuit breaker or an unidentified gene - flip its switch and see what happens. New remote-control technology may offer biologists a powerful way to do this with cells and genes.'Radiogenetics' seeks to remotely control cells and genes - Read more

Graphic: HIV Cell [03/12/2014] Researchers can now explore viruses, bacteria and components of the human body in more detail than ever before with software developed at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI). In a study published online ahead of print December 1 by the journal Nature Methods, the researchers demonstrated how the software, called cellPACK, can be used to model viruses such as HIV.Scientists create new tool for exploring cells in 3D - Read more

Fat a culprit in fibrotic lung damage

Photo: Man holding a printed iconic image of the lungs [24/11/2014] Excess fat in the lung may cause pulmonary fibrosis, an incurable lung disease. It is caused by scarring that seems to feed on itself, with the tougher, less elastic tissue replacing the ever moving and stretching lung, making it increasingly difficult for patients to breathe.Fat a culprit in fibrotic lung damage - Read more

Clock for brain waves

Graphic: Network of nerve cells [21/11/2014] Oscillations of brain activity influence our attention and many other mental functions. Tatjana Tchumatchenko from the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research in Frankfurt and Claudia Clopath from Imperial College London have now developed a theoretical model that explains the origin of such oscillations in neural networks.Clock for brain waves - Read more

Photo: Woman takes blood sample for sugar test [10/11/2014] Tiny extensions on cells, cilia, play an important role in insulin release, according to a new study. The researchers report that the cilia of beta cells in the pancreas are covered with insulin receptors and that changed ciliary function can be associated with the development of type 2 diabetes.Cellular extensions with a large effect - Read more
