"We will begin a process of sharing ideas and designing experiments to answer questions about growth in simple systems tha...

Two-faced protein can stop metastasis or promote it, researchers say

A protein known to be a key component of the glue that holds cells together also is involved in breaking them apart and promoting their movement when tumors begin to spread to other parts of the body, researchers at Mayo Clinic have found. The study, published in the Sept. 18 online issue of the Jo...

...ultaneously as a lubricant for gliding on and as a glue which the slug can grip hold of. An intestinal robot should also have a similar layer to use. To achieve this, an adhesive layer is added to the mucus-like properties, which allows the device to be stuck to the layer of mucus. The ability to be atta...

"Our results point the way toward new applications for our mussel mimetic polymers," said Messersmith, who has designed a versatile two-sided coating that sticks securely to a surface and prevents cell, protein and bacterial...

Researchers get neurons and silicon talking

Gene therapy works in mice to prevent blindness that strikes boys

...tein called retinoschisin, or RS1, which acts like glue to connect the layers of the retina. Without it, the layers separate and tiny cysts form, devastating the vision and often leading to blindness in about 1 of every 5,000 boys. UF researchers injected a healthy version of the human RS1 gene to the su...

Previous studies have shown that health care workers are injured in about 7 percent of operations. As many as 87 percent of surgeons will receive an injury that breaks the skin -- thus allowing for possib...
