"Molecular Tool" Could Trigger Targeted Immune Responses
A small molecule has been designed that can be used as a molecular tool to trigger immunogenic cell death, enabling researchers to better understand the effects of damage-associated molecular patterns in immunity.
Link Between Low Levels of Vitamin D and High Levels of Inflammation Established
The genetic data of nearly 300,000 people has helped to establish that low levels of vitamin D are linked to high levels of inflammation, providing a potential avenue for reducing chronic inflammation.
Disruption of the Circadian Clocks Plays a Critical Role in Weight Gain in Mice
According to research, disruption of circadian clocks (which keep the body and its cells entrained to the 24-hour day-night cycle) plays a critical role in weight gain.
Biomarkers Identified That Signal Spread of Deadly Breast Cancer
Scientists say they have identified key molecular differences between cancer cells that cling to an initial tumor and those that venture off to form distant tumors.
How Coronaviruses Exploit Host Defense Mechanisms To Replicate Efficiently Revealed
New insights into the replication mechanisms of coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2 and MERS-CoV-2, have been revealed by researchers at the University of Hong Kong.
New Atlas Maps the Continuum of Embryo Development in Fruit Flies
Using fruit flies, scientists have constructed the most complete and detailed single-cell map of embryo development in any animal to date.
Endocrine Disrupting Chemical Mixtures Found To Cause Hepatic Toxicity
Researchers have identified that endocrine disrupting chemicals, in the mixtures that they occur in consumer products, cause liver toxicity as they are metabolized.
Vitamin K Prevents Form of Cell Death
Researchers report that vitamin K, which is generally known for its importance in blood clotting, acts as an antioxidant efficiently inhibiting ferroptotic cell death.
Key Mechanism Controlling Skin Regeneration Identified
A molecular switch has been identified that plays a key role in controlling skin regeneration.
Novel Technology Restores Cell Function in Pigs After Death
Using a new technology that delivers a specially designed cell-protective fluid to organs and tissues, researchers restored blood circulation and other cellular functions in pigs a full hour after their deaths.
