Researchers Discover a New Receptor Regulating Sebaceous Gland Progenitor Cell Function

Stem cells and progenitor cells play an important role in the renewal of multiple tissues. Scientists have discovered a molecule called embigin on the surface of epithelia progenitor cells and proven ...

New Perspective on RNA Function: RNA Regulates Proteins and Thereby Can Control Cell Growth, Study Shows

Scientists gained new insights into RNA-mediated regulation of proteins (riboregulation) and its role in controlling cell growth, and most importantly how undifferentiated cells (embryonic stem ...

Maintaining the Right Niche for Blood Cell Development

Researchers have identified the role of transcription factors Runx1 and Runx2 in the inhibition of fibrosis, the abnormal build-up of connective tissue with severe hematopoietic defects, in the bone ...

Great Progress Thanks to Mini Organs

Life-like organ replicas -- so-called 3D organoids -- are a good way to research disease processes. A team has now presented a kind of blueprint for such a model of the ...

Mind the Gap: Space Inside Eggs Steers First Few Steps of Life

Imagine sitting at a meeting where the shape of the table and your place at it might impact how you get along with the other members. Cells also communicate with their nearest neighbors, and in ...

Key Protein Identified for Brain Stem Cell Longevity
