Sodium selective DNAzyme sensor

(Phys.org)—Sodium ions are key regulators in cellular processes. The fluids in cells, whether it is water, blood plasma, or nutrients, are regulated by the sodium concentration in cells. If scientists could study sodium ...

New measures call theories about endocytosis into question

Cellular biology still harbors mysteries. Notably, there is no unequivocal explanation behind endocytosis, the biological process that allows exchanges between a cell and its environment. Two hypotheses prevail for explaining ...

Imaging the genome: Cataloguing the fundamental processes of life

The team of researchers, led by Dr Rafael Carazo Salas from the Department of Genetics, combined high-resolution 3D confocal microscopy and computer-automated analysis of the images to survey the fission yeast genome with ...

Live and let-7: MicroRNA plays surprising role in cell survival

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have identified a microRNA molecule as a surprisingly crucial player in managing cell survival and growth. The findings, published in the October 7 ...

Intracellular imaging gets interactive

A so-called bioparallel chemistry approach is successfully used to image and activate an essential metabolism compound inside a cell.

Research explores processes behind cell division

A new theoretical framework outlined by a Harvard scientist could help solve the mystery of how bacterial cells coordinate processes that are critical to cellular division, such as DNA replication, and how bacteria know when ...
