Image: Cells with damage in their DNA (green) assemble abnormally stable microtubule structures (purple to white). This new link between microtubule control and the response to DNA damage, originally discovered in yeast, can be observed also in human cells (shown) (Photo courtesy of L. Wagstaff, E. Piddini).

Essential Processes of Life in the Genome Imaged

A new study has allowed researchers to glimpse into never-before-seen regions of the genome and better determine for the first time the role played by more than 250 genes key to cell growth and development.  More...

Image: Following injury, neonatal mouse hearts (middle) heal well, appearing similar to healthy heart tissue (top). But adult hearts form scar tissue following injury (bottom) (Photo courtesy of Dr. K. Lavine, Washington University School of Medicine).

Preserving Endogenous Cardiac Macrophages Following Heart Attack Reduces Scarring and Promotes Healing

Cardiac disease researchers have identified a distinct population of macrophages within the adult heart that after injury promotes cardiac recovery through cardiomyocyte proliferation and angiogenesis.  More...
