New Kit Purifies RNA from Very Small Samples

A new kit for RNA purification prior to microarray analysis was designed specifically for small samples and for particularly difficult to isolate targets such as subpopulations of cells within larger samples like those found in heterogeneous solid tumors or hematologic malignancies.  More...

Laser-Based Tool Injects Nanoparticles and Macromolecules into Cells with Minimal Damage

Cell biologists have developed a laser-based tool that is capable of injecting large objects such as nanoparticles, bacteria, or macromolecules into cells at a speed much greater than allowed by current technologies.  More...

Honokiol Prevents Hypertrophy in Mice by Increasing Mitochondrial Sirt3 Activity

The ancient herbal therapy substance honokiol, which is derived from the bark, seed cones, and leaves of trees belonging to the genus Magnolia, has been found in a recent study to have chemical properties that enable it to protect the heart from hypertrophy.  More...

Low-Temperature Plasma Treatment Kills Prostate Cancer Cells

By combining physics and biology a team of British cancer researchers has shown that low-temperature plasma treatment kills prostate cancer cells in culture and may warrant development into a therapeutic tool to replace radiation and photodynamic methods.  More...

Suppression of Tumor Growth Linked to Actions of the Ubiquitin System

Cancer researchers working with mouse xenograft and human cancer cell cultures have identified components of the ubiquitin system that are linked to certain cellular processes, which act to suppress malignant growth and protect healthy tissues.  More...
