Scientists Develop Method to Track Immune System Enzyme in Live Animals
...ed permanently a yellow fluorescent protein in the progeny
of germinal center B cells. Thanks to these new mouse models, we can track in live animals whenever the AID enzyme is active as well as the result of that activity, says Casellas. Scientists can also cross these new mouse strains with mice predispose...
Loss of Stem Cells Correlates With Premature Aging
...n DNA. But when these stem cells are needed, their progeny
can rapidly divide and are able to replenish the tissue with new cells. Brown explains that in the current study the mouse cells without ATR had an overwhelming amount of DNA damage and could not contribute to tissue renewal; nevertheless, the 10 ...
