New micro-platform reveals cancer cells’ natural behavior

A new cell culture platform allows researchers to observe never-before-seen behaviors of live cancer cells under the microscope, leading to explanations of long-known cancer characteristics. The easy-to-produce platform developed by Hokkaido University researchers offers cancer cells micro-scale attachment sites that elicit never-before-seen behaviors highly relevant to cancer's clinical properties. The observation of these behaviors shed… Continue reading New micro-platform reveals cancer cells’ natural behavior

Properties of stem cells that determine cell fate identified

Researchers from the University of California, Irvine have identified intrinsic cell properties that influence the fate of neural stem cells, affecting what type of brain cell they will form: neurons, astrocytes, or oligodendrocytes. This discovery could give scientists a new way to predict or control the fate of stem cells, improving their use in transplantation… Continue reading Properties of stem cells that determine cell fate identified

Body’s own ‘bomb squad’ can help protect against brain tumors

Researchers from Peking University have discovered how a molecule can help prevent certain types of brain tumors by recognizing and 'disarming' harmful proteins that cause them.Their study in fruit flies could lead to a potential new treatment approach for brain tumors in future. Most multi-cellular organisms possess a one-way cell signaling pathway called Notch signaling,… Continue reading Body’s own ‘bomb squad’ can help protect against brain tumors

Researchers confine mature cells to turn them into stem cells

Stem cells are the blank slate on which all specialised cells in our bodies are built and they are the foundation for every organ and tissue in the body. Recent research led by Professor G.V. Shivashankar of the Mechanobiology Institute (MBI) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the FIRC Institute of Molecular Oncology… Continue reading Researchers confine mature cells to turn them into stem cells
