Severe Infections Wreak Havoc on Mouse Blood Cell Production

Intravital microscopy allows the visualisation of the bone marrow cavity in the skull of mice. These images show the abundance of bone forming cells called osteoblasts (green) in healthy mice, which are important for protecting HSCs in the bone marrow. As severe infection develops, these cells steadily decrease in number until they are completely destroyed. Credit: Haltalli et al. 2020

How Cells Move and Don't Get Stuck

News

Cell velocity, or how fast a cell moves, is known to depend on how sticky the surface is beneath it, but the precise mechanisms of this relationship have remained elusive for decades. Now, researchers have figured out the precise mechanics and developed a mathematical model capturing the forces involved in cell movement.
