University of Chicago researchers uncover first steps in cell-cell adhesion process
...ed puncta rows the "adhesion zipper." Several hours
after the calcium concentration was raised, Vasioukhin observed that some of the puncta in the rows fused into one dot. "It is as if the puncta are the teeth of a zipper, and when an adherence junction starts to form, the zipper closes to form a si...
Non-toxic peptide blocks spread of prostate cancer in rats
... Rats in this group which first received PHSCN 24 hours
after surgery developed 99 percent fewer visible lung metastases and 95 percent fewer microscopic lung micrometastases than rats treated with surgery alone. Livant admits that the exact mechanism of PHSCN's anti-cancer activity remains unknown, alth...

of vitamin A blockage at the right stage of development led to severe holoprosencephaly. "We produced chick embryos that completely lacked a forebrain, and had no middle and upper face. Such conditions are lethal both in humans, and in these chick e...

over two years mapping the surface of hundreds of Pfiesteria zoospores using a scanning electron microscope. In so doing, he found that many specimens had a different "fingerprint" - they had a four-sided structural plate on the outside of the cells ...

How a hormonal henchman triggers death
