Nanotechnology enables single-cell sorting by function

For nearly 40 years, drugmakers have used genetically engineered cells as tiny drug factories. Such cells can be programmed to secrete compounds that yield drugs used to treat cancer and autoimmune conditions such as arthritis.

In soil, death doesn't stop the spread of antibiotic resistance

Dead bacteria can still make their presence felt in the land of the living. New research led by Michigan State University integrative biologists is showing that this could have big implications for antibiotic resistance on ...

Octopus-like tentacles help cancer cells invade the body

With help from the best tweezers in the world, a team of researchers from the University of Copenhagen has shed new light on a fundamental mechanism in all living cells that helps them explore their surroundings and even ...

Pop-up factories beneath the cell membrane

A living cell is exposed to a variety of stimuli. Countless messengers dock on its surface, where receptors in the cell membrane receive the incoming "orders." Signaling cascades are then triggered inside the cell, which ...
