The latest study suggests the area in the human nose seems to carry on producing neurons in our adulthood, based on an analysis of human tissue taken from seven middle-aged human donors.
A new structure in human cells has been discovered by Swedish researchers. The structure is a new type of protein complex that the cell uses to attach to its surroundings and proves to play a key part in cell division.
Japanese researchers have successfully created immature human eggs out of stem cells, bringing us a step closer to make babies from skin cells.
Swedish researchers have created a systematic and detailed map of the cell types of the mouse nervous system. The researchers will now use the same methods to map out the human brain on a detailed level.
Scientists have just defined a new shape called the scutoid (SCOO-toid) while studying epithelial cells, the building blocks of embryos that eventually end up forming our skin and lining our organs and blood vessels.
Harvard researchers reported how they systematically profiled every cell in developing zebrafish and western claw-toed frog embryos to establish a roadmap revealing how one cell builds an entire organism.
US Scientists managed to identify the gene that caused Alzheimer’s disease. Not only that, but they also managed to neutralize the gene so that it did not lead to Alzheimer’s development.
Researchers have fused living and non-living cells for the first time in a way that allows them to work together, paving the way for new applications.
Researchers use a precision 3D cell-patterning technology called DNA-programmed assembly of cells (DPAC) to set up an initial spatial template of a tissue that then folds itself into complex shapes.
New techniques in DNA self-assembly allow researchers to create the largest to-date customizable patterns with nanometer precision on a budget.
The technology could have multiple applications, from identifying victims in a mass disaster to analyzing crime scenes.
Unnatural DNA used to encode unnatural proteins, all in otherwise normal cells.
They’re designed to kill cancer cells, and they kill themselves in the process.
An experimental gene therapy for a rare skin disease sheds light on the cellular mechanisms that help healthy skin continuously regenerate.
The Allen Institute for Brain Science has added the first data from human nerve cells to a publicly available database for researchers to explore and understand the building blocks of the human brain.
