Novel Culture Method May Pave the Way for Regeneration of Damaged Kidneys

A three-dimensional (3D) culture method allows long term maintenance of nephron progenitor cells, a type of kidney precursor cell that normally exist only during a brief stage of embryonic development. More...

Pro-Resolving Lipid Mediators Are Critical in Modulating T-Cell Responses

A recent paper established that adaptive immune responses in human peripheral blood lymphocytes were in part modulated by resolvins and maresins, molecules produced in the body naturally from certain omega-3 fatty acids. More...

Salmonella-Based Nanoparticles Suppress Growth of Multidrug Resistant Tumors

Gold nanoparticles were used to transport the Salmonella enterica serotype Typhimurium protein SipA into cancer cells where it decreased the amount of the P-glycoprotein multidrug resistance transporter and suppressed tumor growth. More...

CD1a on Langerhans Cells Controls Some Types of Skin Inflammation

A team of Australian and American researchers showed that skin inflammation caused by contact with plants such as poison ivy or poison sumac was regulated by the skin cell surface glycoprotein CD1a. More...

Neuregulin-1 Identified As Potential Alzheimer's Disease Treatment

Overexpression of either type I or type III neuregulin-1 (Nrg1, encoded by the NRG1 gene) improved cognitive deficits and reduced neuropathology in an Alzheimer's disease (AD) mouse model. More...

Malignant Melanoma Releases MicroRNAs to Condition the Dermis Prior to Metastasis

Cancer researchers have discovered that prior to spreading, malignant melanoma sends out packets of microRNAs to induce morphological changes in the dermis to prepare that tissue to receive and transport the cancer cells. More...

Novel Monkey Model to Enable Study of Dormant Herpes Infections

A team of molecular virologists has demonstrated the potential of the pigtailed macaque monkey model as a platform to study the implications of dormant herpes viruses on individuals with compromised immune systems. More...
