New research gives insights into how organelles divide in cells

A pioneering study has shed new light on how subcellular organelles divide and multiply. The study, led by Professor Michael Schrader from the University of Exeter, has explored on peroxisome dynamics and revealed alternative ...

Artificial organelles based on hybrid protein nanoparticles

Compartmentalization is one of the main strategies by which nature allows for control over many biological processes. For the proper functioning of living cells, organelles, small compartments within the cell, are essential. ...

A new technique for isolating intact lysosomes from cell cultures

The correct functioning of cells rests upon the precise orchestration of many complex processes and organelles. Lysosomes—vital cell organelles—are enzyme-filled subunits found within many animal cells that help break ...

Prions may channel RNA's messages

Prions get mostly bad press, but they may be the keys to controlling protein synthesis in cells.

A silica nanostructure with chemo-enzymatic compartmentalization

As COVID-19 vaccinations are well underway, people await a return to normal life. However, fears also grow due to unforeseen side effects like the rare thrombosis. In the body, life is maintained by the movement of substances ...

Scientists provide detailed map to understanding human cells

Researchers from Sinai Health have published a study providing an ultra-detailed look at the organization of a living human cell, providing a new tool that can help scientists around the world better understand what happens ...
