Neutrophil Interacting With Klebsiella pneumoniae
A Digitally colorized scanning electron microscopic image depicting a blue-colored neutrophil interacting with two pink-colored, rod shaped, multidrug-resistant, Klebsiella pneumonia bacteria.
How Immune Cells Can Prevent Cognitive Decline
A study suggests that the underproduction of mucosal-associated invariant T cells contributes to Alzheimer’s disease, and increasing these immune cells could reverse the damage.
Mystery About the Origins of Introns Solved
A new study from UC Santa Cruz has pointed toward a proposed mechanism for the formation of introns in the genomes of prokaryotes.
Pregnant Mouse’s High-Fat Diet Triggers Rewiring in Pups’ Brains
Scientists studied pregnant mice on a high-fat diet. In findings appearing in the journal Nature Metabolism, they found that mom’s high-fat diet triggers immune cells in the developing brains of male but not female mouse pups to overconsume the mood-influencing brain chemical serotonin, leading to depressed-like behavior.
Novel Device Detects COVID-19 Antibodies in Five Minutes
Scientists have developed an electrochemical immunosensor that rapidly detects antibodies against SARS-CoV-2.

Imaging Protocol Handbook
The ability to visualize cells is crucial for all scientists hoping to understand cell behavior. This handbook will take you through common imaging protocols, critical notes, tips for running a successful experiment and the supplies needed for each.
Cryogenically Storing Animal Cell Cultures
Maintaining the health of growing cell cultures is a demanding task made more difficult by the perpetual risk of loss through accidents or contamination. In addition, actively growing cell cultures are subject to age-related or environmentally-induced changes which can result in their ongoing evolution and potential loss.
