Liver regeneration tied to parasites associated with leprosy: study
November 15, 2022 -- Scientists at the University of Edinburgh have discovered that bacteria linked with leprosy can reprogram cells to increase the size of a liver in adult armadillos without causing damage, scarring, or tumors. Read More
Branched lipids efficiently deliver mRNA
November 10, 2022 -- Researchers from Japan have developed a novel branched ionizable lipid that greatly increases the efficiency of mRNA delivery to cells. Their findings may lead to the design of other novel lipids. Read More
Women are more protected from renal cell death: study
November 10, 2022 -- Women are protected from a form of cell death that occurs in injured kidneys, according to a new study from Duke Health. The mechanism could be used as a potential treatment pathway for renal repair in the future. Read More
Nucleolin could be key to understanding neurodegenerative disorders
November 10, 2022 -- A new study challenges recent theories of the role structures inside the nucleus play in neurodegenerative disorders and suggests the relevance of researching Nucleolin, its function, and how it contributes to these disorders. Read More
Scientists leverage data to develop cell atlas for human brain
November 9, 2022 -- At the Neuroscience 2022 conference, researchers will present their findings for the development of a cell atlas -- a comprehensive reference of all cell types, including their location, shape, and distribution -- for the human brain. Read More
AI streamlines enzyme engineering
November 4, 2022 -- Osaka University researchers used artificial intelligence (AI) to streamline enzyme engineering, potentially improving enzyme suitability for custom purposes including pharmaceutical production. Read More
Mouse study reveals how synapses consolidate memories
November 4, 2022 -- Researchers at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke have discovered a new daily rhythm in the inhibitory synapses that dampen brain activity and consolidate new information into long-lasting memories. Their study in mice may help explain how synaptic changes enhance human memory. Read More
Study finds certain lymphoid cells not superfluous, offers insight into inflammatory diseases
November 3, 2022 -- A new study reveals group 2 innate lymphoid cells are not redundant and in fact are essential for protecting the skin, gastrointestinal tract, airways, and other barrier tissues from parasitic infections as well as damage associated with allergic inflammation and asthma.
