NJIT Presidential Award winner takes stem cell research another step

...es. Adult stem cells also have a unique trait that lends them their magic: Under the right conditions, or given the proper signals, they have the ability to turn into different cell types. Arinzeh is doing exactly that: developing signals, in the form of biomaterials, that will help adult stem cells turn ...

Researchers extend mouse lifespan by protecting against free radicals

... published online by the journal Science on May 5, lends more credence to the free-radical theory of aging. The theory suggests that very reactive chemicals, called "free radicals," can be damaging to the body at the cellular level. Those reactive chemicals can take part in unnecessary chemical reactions ...

Elderly mice yield clues to the process of growing old

...tions accumulate much more rapidly." The new work lends support to one of the two leading theories of how animals, including humans, grow old and die. It supports the theory that apoptosis or programmed cell death underpins aging. A competing theory holds that oxidative stress -- the body's reaction to ox...

Protein behind autumn color splendor identified

...ifferent proteins. Most of the chlorophyll, which lends plants their green color, is bound to a protein called LHCII. Every individual protein is incredibly small (nearly a million times smaller than the human eye can perceive), but it is possible see them if there are many of them together. LHCII is pro...

Pitt professor's theory of evolution gets boost from cell research

... that the emerging understanding of cell structure lends strong support to Schwartz's theory of evolution, originally explained in his seminal work, Sudden Origins: Fossils, Genes, and the Emergence of Species (John Wiley & Sons, 2000). In that book, Schwartz hearkens back to earlier theories that sug...

Protein translation in sperm
