Bifacial Stem Cells Produce Wood and Bast

One of the most important growth processes on Earth studied

24-Jan-2019

So-called bifacial stem cells are responsible for one of the most critical growth processes on Earth – the formation of wood. By alternately developing into wood and bast cells, these stem cells are thus starting points for forming wood as well as generating plant bast fibres. A team of ...

Moths and magnets could save lives

Experimental therapy could repair mutations that cause genetic diseases

15-Nov-2018

A new technology that relies on a moth-infecting virus and nanomagnets could be used to edit defective genes that give rise to diseases like sickle cell, muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis. Rice University bioengineer Gang Bao has combined magnetic nanoparticles with a viral container drawn ...

Next generation of neuroscience tools

13-Sep-2017

UAlberta chemistry professor Robert Campbell is developing new ways to see and manipulate the activity of neurons in the brain, which could revolutionize the way we understand the organ that controls most of the activities of the body. "We want to help other researchers apply these new ...

Shedding light on protein interaction networks in a developing organism

28-Jul-2017

Researchers succeeded for the first time in mapping protein-protein interactions in living developing plant roots. The findings were made by three international research groups led by the department of Plant Developmental Biology at Wageningen University and Research. The work is considered a ...

Protein mingling under blue light

27-Jun-2017

One of the current challenges in biology is to understand rapidly-changing phenomena. Interestingly, only a small fraction of them is due to proteins acting in isolation, the majority of biological events are regulated by proteins acting together in clusters. Researchers at the Center for ...

Overloading of protein localization triggers cellular defects

07-Mar-2017

Researchers at Okayama University report how the overloading of protein transport mechanisms affects cell functioning. Over-expression of different types of target proteins leads to cellular growth defects, and the mechanism for transporting proteins out of a cell nucleus has the lowest ...

The birth of the brightest red glowing protein

25-Nov-2016

The brightest red fluorescent protein ever, mScarlet, has just been engineered by researchers at the University of Amsterdam, the Institut de Biologie Structurale, IBS (CEA/CNRS/University Grenoble Alpes) and the European Synchrotron (ESRF) in France. mScarlet can be used to monitor the activity ...

Professor develops super-resolution microscopy techniques

04-Nov-2016

For scientists developing life-saving medicines, knowing how cells interact and communicate with one another is an important part of the puzzle. The problem is, being able to see those interactions through a microscope hasn't always been possible. But now, thanks to University of New Mexico ...

The architecture of odor perception

Olfactory glomeruli have a unique structure

22-Sep-2016

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology in Jena, Germany, have now quantified and mapped the functional units of the olfactory center in the brains of vinegar flies responsible for the perception of odors. They found out that the so-called olfactory glomeruli in the antennal ...

Watching 'jumping genes' in action

Real-time observation of transposon activity in living cells

16-Jun-2016

"Jumping genes" are ubiquitous. Every domain of life hosts these sequences of DNA that can "jump" from one position to another along a chromosome; in fact, nearly half the human genome is made up of jumping genes. Depending on their specific excision and insertion points, jumping genes can ...
