Fox Chase study shows that weakened T-cell receptor signals change T-cell lineage

...he adaptive arm of the immune system is whether to adopt the B-cell or T-cell fate. Both originate from stem cells in the bone marrow, but B cells mature there while T cells migrate to the thymus gland, which governs their development.

Free-energy theory borne out in large-scale protein folding

...method worked remarkably well. We expect others to adopt it in their own studies." Proteins are the workhorses of biology. At any given time, each cell in our bodies contains 10,000 or more of them. Each of these proteins is a chain of amino acids strung end-to-end like beads in necklace. For longer prote...

New understanding of regeneration gained by Forsyth scientists
