Advances in research on the most general type of stem cells

Stem cell research is the prerequisite for regenerative medicine, which with the help of the body's cells recreates and heals important organs. Now, researchers at Karolinska Institutet, SickKids in Canada and KU Leuven in ...

Patterns in primordial germ cell migration

Whenever an organism develops and forms organs, a tumor creates metastases or the immune system becomes active in inflammation, cells migrate within the body. As they do, they interact with surrounding tissues which influence ...

Acoustic plasmons found in hole-doped cuprate superconductors

The presence of acoustic plasmons in p-type (hole-doped) cuprate superconductors has now been confirmed by Dr. Ke-Jin Zhou and his team using high-resolution RIXS (Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering), at Diamond Light Source's ...

Unraveling a mystery surrounding embryonic cells

Last year, researchers at the University of California, Riverside, identified the early origins of neural crest cells—embryonic cells in vertebrates that travel throughout the body and generate many cell types—in chick ...
