New DNA-nanotechnology Enhances DNA and RNA Analysis

In this image, the use of SABER-FISH enabled the visualization of the retina's organization into distinct layers with the light-sensing photoreceptor layer positioned at the top of the image. Each layer contains a diversity of specialized neuronal cells that can be identified by the presence of unique RNA molecules detected by the method.

Bioactive Agents Improve Synthetic Bone Substitutes

News

Synthetic bone substitutes are promising materials for bone defect repair, but their efficacy can be substantially improved by bioactive agents such as growth factors. In a new study, researchers have modified beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) with increasing quantities of bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) derived from E. coli and shown improved bone healing.
