Pair of Proteins Control Brain Cell Shape
Scientists at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) in Bonn have gained new insights into the early phase of the brain’s development

Chinese Medicine Yields Secrets
Atomic mechanism of 2-headed molecule derived from Chang Shan, a traditional Chinese herb, is shown in unprecedented detail

First Ever 'Atlas' of T Cells in Human Body

Biologists Identify Proteins Vital to Chromosome Segregation
New York University biologists have identified how a vital protein is loaded by others into the centromere, the part of the chromosome that plays a significant role in cell division

New Insight to Mechanisms of T-ALL Leukemia
Acute lymphatic leukemia (ALL) is the most common cancer in children under the age of 14 years. With optimum treatment, approximately 75 % of children are currently cured, but the treatment consists of severe chemotherapy with many side effects

Fat Influences Decisions Taken by Brain Cells
Scientists at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have identified two molecules that play an important role in the survival and production of nerve cells in the brain, including nerve cells that produce dopamine

'Molecular Levers' May Make Things Better
In a forced game of molecular tug-of war, some strings of atoms can act like a lever, accelerating reactions 1000 times faster than other molecules – opening possibilities for creating new materials

Genetic Clues to Insulin Production
Scientists have found three new and relatively rare genetic variants that influence insulin production, offering new clues about the genetic factors behind diabetes

Excessive Protein Synthesis Linked to Autistic-like Behaviors
Autistic-like behaviors can be partially remedied by normalizing excessive levels of protein synthesis in the brain, a team of researchers has found in a study of laboratory mice

Uncovering Major Evolutionary Differences Among Species
Researchers have uncovered a genetic basis for fundamental differences between humans and other vertebrates that could also help explain why humans are susceptible to diseases not found in other species

Nutrient-Sensing Enzymes Key to Survival in Newborns
In the perilous hours immediately after birth, a newborn mammal must survive the sudden loss of food supply from its mother

Cellular Patterns of Development
New research finds a key mechanism in development involves 'paused' RNA polymerase

Genomic 'Hotspots' Offer Clues to Causes of Autism, Other Disorders
An international team, led by researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, has discovered that "random" mutations in the genome are not quite so random after all

Origin of Life Emerged from Cell Membrane Bioenergetics
A coherent pathway which starts from no more than rocks, water and carbon dioxide and leads to the emergence of the strange bio-energetic properties of living cells, has been traced for the first time in a major hypothesis paper

Synced to Grow
Oscillating pattern of gene activity may underlie how embryos grow proportionately throughout body plan
