A Synthetic Molecule Instigates Cancer Cells To Self-Harm
Scientists have devised a method to outwit cancer cells and instigate them to self-harm, ultimately causing death of cancer cells. This novel discovery could unlock reliable// treatments for cancer.
This discovery works on the known principle that involves the activation of the body’s many ...
Enzyme stimulates growth of adult stem cells
... According to researchers at the University of Texas, an enzyme has been found, that instigates
the growth and maturation of stem cells lurking in bone marrow, causing the stem cells to step up production and replace lost blood and immune system ...
December 2008 highlights from Biology of Reproduction
...l oocytes, around which primordial follicles are forming. This key time in ovarian development establishes the population of oocytes and follicles and instigates
evelopment of a cohort of follicles. If follicles fail to form, the result is oocyte demise, yet oocytes are also essential for follicular development...
Max Planck researchers make a breakthrough in plant stem cell research
...e cytokinin limits its own influence. The study shows that the ARR genes play a direct role in regulation of the stem cell pool.
The hormone itself instigates
the meristematic stem cells to split; at the same time, it activates various ARR genes, which break the cytokinin signal chain. Jan Lohmann explains t...
A gene's first 'kiss' sets off that affair known as puberty
...blished in this week's online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
Until now, little had been known about what instigates
the cascade of hormone secretions that, over time, produces puberty's tell-tale physical changes, including the development of breasts in girls and vo...
