Transcription Roadblock Limits Entry of Epiblast Cells to the Germline

Scanning electron micrograph of a 6 day old human embryo beginning to implant into the lining of the uterus (endometrium). As implantation progresses, the inner cell mass begins to form into the bilaminar disc. The two layers are called the epiblast and the hypoblast. An embryo that has been in culture for up to 14 days will remain at this stage of development. Such cultured embryos remain alive but do not progress as they would in the womb.

Maturation Process of Natural Killer Cells Mapped


Notch signaling is necessary for the normal development and function of natural killer cells. This could be significant for the natural killer cells’ ability to fight cancer and infections.


Drug Seeks Out Receptors in Sarcoma Cells, Shrinks Tumors


A new compound that targets a receptor within sarcoma cancer cells shrank tumors and hampered their ability to spread in mice and pigs, a study from researchers at the University of Illinois reports.
