Cellular message movement captured on video

... the bovine aortic endothelial cells, grew them in tissue culture, and filmed them while they passed fluid across the cells’ surface in a simulation of flowing blood. With that physical stimulus, paxillin consistently moved in the same direction as the fluid flow. Paxillin is found primarily at focal adh...

Enzyme delivered in smaller package protects cells from radiation damage

A recent Senior Scientist’s Scientific Forum on the DFTD reviewed progress in understanding and managing the disease and set an agenda for future research and management. “The aim is to stop ...

Research team identifies new Alzheimer's gene

...chers rapidly produced a genetic map of each brain tissue sample and isolated the GAB2 gene relatively quickly. “This Alzheimer's disease breakthrough is another powerful example of a fundamental life science discovery made by an Affymetrix customer.

Brightening prospects of using fluorescent nanotubes in medical applications

... spectrum – the near infrared where skin and other tissue is transparent – that allows the nanotube light to stand out. Nanotubes are made entirely from graphitic carbon, which is non-toxic and, at least so far, experiments that have been done indicate that they do not damage living cells. By comparison...

Migration alert -- How tumor cells home in on the lymphatic system

...ate this new concept, the researchers engineered a tissue culture model of the tumor-lymphatic microenvironment and developed computational models to calculate the gradients of the signaling molecule. The study provides the first evidence that tumor cells can both produce and use the same signaling mole...

University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine researchers develop 'off-the-shelf' vascular grafts

...C-seeded polymer by surrounding tissue, exhibiting tissue formation that is consistent with a mature artery. According to Dr. Vorp, these findings in a rat demonstrate the feasibility of developing MDSC-seeded tissue-engineered vascular grafts for eventual human application. “The next step is to demonstr...

Among the insights into cell and tissue engineering gained from work with embryonic stem cells, it adds, are those "relevant to the engineering of functional equivalents of pancreatic, islet-like, glucose-responsive, insulin-producing cells to treat diabetes." The researchers said they ...
