Newly created cancer stem cells could aid breast cancer research
...tumors metastasized. In sharp contrast, scientists must
inject about 1 million cells to get a tumor when working with the cancer cell lines routinely used in the laboratory. In the process of making a model that reflects a tumor type common in patients, I created tumor-initiating cells, Ince explains. T...

Evolution is driven by gene regulation
...difference is not the gene content, the difference must
be in the way regulation of genes produces their protein products. Comparing gene regulation across similar organisms has been difficult because the nucleotide sequence of DNA regulatory regions, or promoters, are more variable than the sequences ...
A study by the MUHC and McGill University opens a new door to understanding cancer

in turn communicate with fat, so they searched bone-forming cells for molecules that could potentially send signals back to fat cells. The researchers found that osteocalcin, a protein made only by bone-forming cells (osteoblasts), was not a mere...

Weizmann Institute scientists discover a control mechanism for metastasis

detach itself from neighboring cells and the intercellular material to which it is anchored. Before it can do this, it receives an order from outside the cell saying: 'prepare to move.' This signal takes the form of a substance called a growth factor...
