Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology found that fibroblast growth factors (Fgfs) play an important role in regeneration of damaged fins in zebrafish, offering potential clues on tissue regeneration in other species.
Researchers explore the function of a protein involved in cell proliferation, survival and migration
Hokkaido University scientists are getting closer to understanding the function of a protein involved in vital cellular processes. This may lead to the discovery of drugs that can treat some cancers and autoimmune disorders.
Biologists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) have made an important discovery that helps explain how plants regulate the proliferation of their stem cells. The discovery has near-term implications for increasing the ...
Discovery of cellular counting mechanism used for size control in algae with links to cancer genetics
James Umen, Ph.D., associate member at Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, and colleagues have discovered a protein that enables the single-celled green alga Chlamydomonas to count cell divisions, a process that is critically ...
Science has a new weapon in the global war against parasitic worms that kill hundreds of thousands or people annually: xWORM.
Japan's nuclear regulator issued a rare warning Friday to the science minister, telling him to disqualify the operator of a plutonium-fueled reactor plagued with a poor safety record, a step that could finally shut it down.
Americans favor diplomatic and economic strategies over military involvement in foreign policy, according to a new national survey conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Americans also ...
Mitochondria are well known for their role as powerhouses in our cells, using respiration to release the energy in the food we eat and trapping that energy in the molecule adenosine triphosphate, or ATP.
"I've always been really fascinated by plants, even from a young age," says Emory biologist Roger Deal. "Their lives are so interesting, even though they are stuck where they are born."
A novel protein, PUB4, that regulates cell division in root tips has been uncovered by genetic research led by the RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science.
