Neurons Initiating the Nausea Response
This image shows GLP1R neurons (red) that play a critical role in detecting toxins in blood vessels (green) and initiating the nausea response.
The Power of Glycans in Cancer Treatments
This is a heavy layer of glycans, seen here in green, covering immune cells and providing a way to target cancer-specific markers in the body.
A drug called enoxacin, originally developed to treat bacterial infections, has proved capable of boosting the metabolism and attenuating the weight gain induced by a fatty diet in tests with mice.
Astrocytes and Neurons
This confocal image of a mouse brain tissue shows the astrocytes (red) and neurons (green).
Modeling Infertility in Flies
Researchers have identified a gene that plays an important role in fertility across multiple species. Pictured is a normal fruit fly ovary (left) and a fruit fly ovary with this gene dialed down (right).
Transplanted Pancreatic Islet Cells
This image shows transplanted pancreatic islet cells in which insulin is shown in red, the cell nucleus in blue, and the blood vessels in aqua.
How Do Flies Attach to Objects?
This is an electron micrograph of the fly foot. The adhesive spatula-shaped setae (light-blue structures) allow the fly to attach itself to objects.
Inside the ovary of the fruit fly, sex cells divide, multiply and grow to become mature eggs. A new study shows that this normal physiological process causes female fruit flies to develop a preference for sugar.
Lung Cancer on a Chip
Lung cancer cells (green) grow within healthy lung tissue (red) in the lung cancer chip, used to model and study how tumors grow.
