Turning viruses into allies against cancer

The making and breaking of microtubules

...the microtubule grows. But through hydrolysis (the word means "water splitting"), GTP readily changes to a different nucleotide, guanosine diphosphate, or GDP. GDP-bound tubulin depolymerizes the microtubule by curling up protofilaments at its plus end and pulling it apart. Freezing the frenzy: Although...

Combination therapy leads to partial recovery from spinal cord injury in rats

... into myelin-producing oligodendrocytes. "The key word here is 'combination.'
