Protein modification with ISG15 blocks coxsackievirus pathology via antiviral and metabolic reprogramming

During early encounters between a pathogen and a cell, receptors located on the cell surface, in the cytosol or within endosomal (storage) compartments engage with the pathogen's nucleic acid (DNA/RNA) or pathogen-associated ...

Machine sucks up tiny tissue spheroids and prints them precisely

A new method of bioprinting uses aspiration of tiny biologics such as spheroids, cells and tissue strands, to precisely place them in 3-D patterns either on scaffolding or without to create artificial tissues with natural ...
