New finding demonstrates what happens at cellular level during onset of type2 diabetes

Researchers at Dublin City University and their project partners in the EU FP7 funded DEXLIFE project have found fresh evidence to explain the processes that occur in the body’s cells leading to the onset of type2 diabetes. …read more Source:: New finding demonstrates what happens at cellular level during onset of type2 diabetes       Continue Reading

Mosquito sex protein could provide key to controlling disease

A protein transferred from male to female mosquitoes during sex influences female mating behavior — a phenomenon that could be exploited to limit the spread of mosquito-borne illnesses like Zika and dengue. …read more Source:: Mosquito sex protein could provide key to controlling disease       Continue Reading

Important new aspects are revealed about the control of cell division

Experts have published a new study on the mechanisms that regulate cell division and guarantee the correct distribution of chromosomes during this process. In particular, they especially highlight the fundamental role that an organelle, specifically the nucleolus, plays in the coordination of these processes. …read more Source:: Important new aspects are revealed about the controlContinue Reading

Visualizing single molecules in whole cells with a new spin

Scientists have adapted DNA-PAINT technology to microscopes that are widespread among cell biology laboratories, called confocal microscopes, and that are used by researchers to image whole cells and thicker tissues at lower resolution. They have demonstrated that the method can visualize a variety of different molecules, including combinations of different proteins, RNAs and DNA throughoutContinue Reading

Retinal diseases could be treated by ophthalmic drops instead of intraocular injections

The Spanish firm Sylentis has developed a compound to treat diseases of the retina, such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, which will be administered by ophthalmic drops instead of intraocular injections. …read more Source:: Retinal diseases could be treated by ophthalmic drops instead of intraocular injections       Continue Reading
