Boosting the efficiency of single-cell RNA-sequencing helps reveal subtle differences between healthy and dysfunctional cells — ScienceDaily

Sequencing RNA from individual cells can reveal a great deal of information about what those cells are doing in the body. MIT researchers have now greatly boosted the amount of…

New 3-D model of a DNA-regulating complex in human cells provides cancer clues — ScienceDaily

Scientists have created an unprecedented 3-dimensional structural model of a key molecular “machine” known as the BAF complex, which modifies DNA architecture and is frequently mutated in cancer and some…

Immune T cells swarm to tumours by following a chemical gradient left by other cancer-killing T cells — ScienceDaily

When immune system T cells find and recognise a target, they release chemicals to attract more T cells which then swarm to help subdue the threat, shows a new study…

Potential new antibiotics work by disrupting bacterial membrane and summoning immune cells in animal models — ScienceDaily

A team led by scientists in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania has engineered powerful new antimicrobial molecules from toxic proteins found in wasp venom. The…

How deadly parasites ‘glide’ into human cells — ScienceDaily

In biological terms, gliding refers to the type of movement during which a cell moves along a surface without changing its shape. This form of movement is unique to parasites…

Tesla wants to build battery cells in Texas alongside Cybertrucks

Tesla may be planning to build batteries at its forthcoming Texas factory. In documents filed to the state’s Commission on Environmental Quality, the company mentions a proposal for cell production.…

Researchers apply CRISPR technology to eliminate fusion genes present in tumor cells

Reviewed by Emily Henderson, B.Sc.Oct 9 2020 The CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing tool is one of the most promising approaches to advancing treatments of genetic diseases – including cancer -, an area…

Researchers identified that SUCLA2-deficient prostate cancer cells can be selectively treated with thymoquinone — ScienceDaily

The compound thymoquinone (TQ) selectively kills prostate cancer cells at advanced stages, according to a new study published in Oncogene. Led by researchers at Kanazawa University, the study reports that…

Vesuvius Killed This Guy 2,000 Years Ago, and Somehow, His Brain Cells Are Still Intact
