Hirsute Or Hairless? Two Proteins May Spell The Difference
...ollicles, form. Their experiments point to two key actors
in a signaling pathway that molds a targeted cluster of cells into a hair bud. During the budding process, overlapping signaling pathways from two adjacent embryonic cell layers—the epithelium and the mesenchyme—direct morphogenesis. The mesenchymal...
Most important actors in the growth process of neurons identified
...t and FGF signaling cascades as the most important actors
and have also discovered their respective roles. Their research shows that the growth of axons and the activity of neurons are completely independent of each other. This new finding can lead to better understanding of a variety of nerve diseases. A ...
...s study is that the entire interaction pattern—two actors
who seemingly know what they are going to do and how this will benefit them—is not one we usually associate with fish. This is probably because we tend to develop cognitively demanding accounts for our own behavior and believe that absent the same co...
Freeze! Scientists film proteins at work by freezing them at different states
...oble (France) have managed to produce a movie. The actors
are not celebrities but a protein whose role is to eliminate toxic molecules. They filmed this protein in action by freezing it at several states. They publish their results this week in Science. Most of the research done on proteins is based on the...
