Mechanism for regulation of growth and differentiation of adult muscle stem cells is revealed
... regeneration, which is a natural response to injury and disease, environmental cues cause adult muscle stem cells (satellite cells) to shift from dormancy
to actively building new muscle tissue. Although the signaling pathways controlling muscle regeneration are fairly well known, how these signals ...

Scientists discover that ancient genes dictate flowering, fall bud set

Where have all the butterflies gone?
This winter's weather conditions may have a lot to do with the drop in numbers. The early winter was mild, with not enough cold to end the winter dormancy
or "diapause" of most butterflies, so they did not emerge to take advantage of early warm weather in February. Then March turned cold and wet, wiping ...

Groups of such long-lived cells may also serve as models to investigate how tuberculosis bacteria survive long periods of dormancy
within human bodies.
En masse, they also may be used to generate signals to repel harmful bacteria from the surfaces of surgical tools like ...
