  • Deadly combination: new direct trigger for cell death discovered

    Scientists led by Professor Ana J. Garcia-Saez at the CECAD Cluster of Excellence for Aging Research at the University of Cologne have shown that apoptosis, the programmed cell death, involves a direct physical interplay between the two proteins BAX and DRP1. DRP1 can serve as a direct cell death ac more

  • Old protein – new function: tBID can directly trigger cell death

    The protein tBID can trigger programmed cell death (apoptosis) by inducing damage in the energy suppliers of the cells, the mitochondria. Apoptosis is essential for maintaining tissue balance. In addition, apoptosis plays a critical role as a defence mechanism and in the elimination of damaged or re more

  • Bungled cell division drives cancer cells of childhood tumors to death

    A drug combination already being tested in other cancers caused the cancer cells to accumulate errors in their genetic material in mice, causing the bone and soft tissue tumors to shrink in the laboratory. The scientists from the Hopp Children's Cancer Center Heidelberg (KiTZ), Heidelberg University more
