Scientists uncover clues to ATP mystery and how cells work

Scientists uncover clues to ATP mystery and how cells work | My little research corner | Scoop.it
(Phys.org) —Strong, thin fibers called microfilaments, or actin filaments, are present in the cytoplasm of almost every cell in the body. By growing and shrinking, actin filaments play a major role in cellular movement. Since these processes require large amounts of energy, actin filaments use a lot ...

Experiments prove 'stemness' of individual immune memory cells

Experiments prove 'stemness' of individual immune memory cells | My little research corner | Scoop.it
Specific individual immune cells, termed 'central memory T cells,' have all the essential characteristics of adult tissue stem cells, researchers have proven for the first time. Such cells can perpetuate themselves indefinitely and generate diverse offspring that can reconstitute "tissue" function. These findings indicate that it should be possible to fully restore specific immunity to pathogens in immunocompromised patients by substitution of small numbers of these T cells.

What is exon skipping and how does it work? | Muscular Dystrophy Campaign

What is exon skipping and how does it work? | Muscular Dystrophy Campaign | My little research corner | Scoop.it
In order to explain the concept of exon skipping, it is first necessary to explain how genes work and how mutations in the dystrophin gene can cause both Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy.

Spatial organization within a niche as a determinant of stem-cell fate

Spatial organization within a niche as a determinant of stem-cell fate | My little research corner | Scoop.it
Stem-cell niches in mammalian tissues are often heterogeneous and compartmentalized; however, whether distinct niche locations determine different stem-cell fates remains unclear.

Geraldine Hamilton: Body parts on a chip | Video on TED.com

It's relatively easy to imagine a new medicine, a better cure for some disease. The hard part, though, is testing it, and that can delay promising new cures for years.
