Nano-Probes Allow an Inside Look at Cell Nuclei

... of light based on their size, they can be used to observe the transfer of material between cells. "We can have two different quantum dots in two different cells, and watch as the cells exchange their mitochondria," says Chen, adding that their technique paves the way for imaging a host of other long-term b...

Solutions that reduce death of marine life reeled in by International Smart Gear Competition

As the world prepared to observe Earth Day, World Wildlife Fund and its partners in the International Smart Gear Competition announced three new winning solutions to prevent the accidental maiming and killing of marine mammals, juvenile fish, and sea turtles that become ensnared by ...

NIH Researchers Discover How Insulin Allows Entry of Glucose Into Cells

With MADM, cells carrying an altered gene of interest actually turn green for easier observation. "We use a green fluorescent protein," Luo says. "So now ...

Using nanoparticles, in vivo gene therapy activates brain stem cells

...ologies of Paris), the UB researchers were able to observe the brain cells expressing genes without having to sacrifice the animal. Then the UB researchers decided to go one step further, to see if they could not only observe, but also manipulate the behavior of brain cells. Their finding that the nanoparti...

Scientists take aim at virulent bacteria by decoding machinery of key control enzyme

...yme in complex with DNA, which has allowed them to observe exactly how the enzyme finds its target on bacterial DNA. The Dam enzyme begins by binding non-specifically to DNA, but once it fastens tightly, it glides smoothly down the entire DNA molecule like fingers sliding down a guitar neck searching for th...
