How to steer a moving cell
...olecules that make up the compass are functionally integrated
to steer the cell under normal and pathological conditions. "A surprising finding was that many of the proteins identified in the neuronal network, the ‘wiring diagram?that controls early development of neural networks in the embryo, are also foun...

In obesity, brain becomes 'unaware' of fat
... regulated by neural and hormonal signals that are integrated
in the brain. Leptin sends signals to the brain about the body’s fat reserves, modifying appetite and energy expenditure accordingly. The arcuate nucleus in the brain’s hypothalamus, known as the ARH, is a major site of leptin sensing, harboring n...
Woven scaffolds could improve cartilage repair
...ing cells, we can build a human tissue that can be integrated
rapidly into the body, representing a new approach in the field of tissue engineering," Moutos said. "Once implanted, the cartilage cells will grow throughout the scaffold, and over time the scaffold will slowly dissolve, leaving the new cartilage...
Stem cells act through multiple mechanisms to benefit mice with neurodegenerative disease
...ir implanted neural stem cells, which migrated and integrated
extensively throughout the brain, did much more than replace brain tissue destroyed by the disease. Some of the transplanted cells replaced damaged nerve cells and transmitted nerve impulses, offering the first evidence that stem cell-derived nerve c...
