Researchers discover how cells modulate macropinocytic activity

Macropinocytosis is one of the major pathways by which cells non-selectively internalize extracellular fluids. The laboratory strain Dictyostelium discoideum serves as a valuable model for studying the regulation of macropinocytosis.

Discovery could lead to new RNA therapeutics for many cancers

Australian scientists have made a major discovery that could underpin the next generation of RNA-based therapeutics and lead to more potent and longer-lasting RNA-based drugs with an even wider array of potential uses.
