Studying Tumors With Mathematical Tools

The results obtained suggest that vitronectin can change the rigidity of the location of the tumorous cells. The changes caused by specific organisation of vitronectin can form 'pathways' that could help the tumor to migrate, with the grave problems that this would cause. For this reason, this 'basic science' study opens a possible new way of combatting this cancer which could be based in modifying the organisation of the vitronectin, so making tumors less aggressive.

On the Origin of Astrocytes

News

During fetal brain development, both neurons and astrocytes are generated from neural stem cells. One of the characteristics of this developmental process is that neural stem cells first generate neurons and, after that, start generating astrocytes. The "switch" to change the fate of neural stem cells from neurons to astrocytes has remained largely unidentified. Until now.
