3D Bioengineering Generates Lung Tissue for Personalized Disease Modeling

Lung disease researchers have developed a novel three-dimensional (3D) culture method for transforming stem cells into lung-like tissue that can be used to study diseases including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), which has traditionally been difficult to study using conventional methods.

Protein Linked to Destruction of Mitochondria in Huntington's Disease

Researchers studying the molecular mechanisms involved in Huntington's disease (HD) have identified a protein that binds to mutant huntingtin protein in the mitochondria of neurons, which results in destruction of the mitochondria and death of the nerve cells. More...

Reactivation of p53 Shrinks Tumors in Mouse Model

Blocking a protein that inhibits lysine acetylation reversed the inactivation of the p53 protein and resulted in shrinkage of tumors in a mouse xenograft model. More...

Siderophores Induce Pneumonia-Promoting Changes in Lung Tissue

Siderophores, which are small, high-affinity iron chelating compounds secreted by some types of microorganisms, were found to act directly on the host to induce inflammatory cytokines and to aid in bacterial dissemination. More...
