When cells experiencing DNA damage fail to repair themselves, they send a signal to their neighbors
letting them know they're in trouble. The discovery, which shows that a process dubbed the DDR (DNA Damage Response) also controls communication from cell to cell, has implications for both cancer a...

It is dictated by the separation of cells that will become sperm and ovules - germ cells-, from the remaining cells, which will be responsible...
